IPL 2020 LIVE KKR vs RCB Dream11 LIVE Score:

19:08: KKR vs RCB playing XI

Royal Challengers Bangalore (Playing XI): Devdutt Padikkal, Aaron Finch, Virat Kohli(c), AB de Villiers(w), Gurkeerat Singh Mann, Washington Sundar, Chris Morris, Mohammed Siraj, Isuru Udana, Navdeep Saini, Yuzvendra Chahal

Kolkata Knight Riders (Playing XI): Shubman Gill, Tom Banton, Nitish Rana, Eoin Morgan(c), Dinesh Karthik(w), Rahul Tripathi, Pat Cummins, Lockie Ferguson, Kuldeep Yadav, Prasidh Krishna, Varun Chakravarthy

19:06: KKR win toss, elects to bat; Sunil Narine and Andre Russell rested

Kohli: We would have batted first. Looks like a good pitch, should be a good chase as long as we bowl well. We bowled them out cheaply in Sharjah. It’s all about how we exceute our plans. Siraj comes back. Shahbaz misses out.

Morgan: We are gonna bat first. The wicket looks good. The games we have won so far, the majority of them we have batted first. It seems to have worked for us throughout the tournament so far. There’s (batting in the powerplay) been continuous improvement for the start of the tournament to the last game. In the last game, we paced it really well. The wickets have been slower which has made it more challenging. The guys at the top against Sunrisers did a great job. Couple of changes. Banton and Prasidh come in for of Mavi and Russell. Dre picked up a niggle in the last game, Sunil is still not 100%.

18:46: Pitch Report

It’s a fresh pitch today in Abu Dhabi, as in Dubai – one of the square boundaries is short at 62m and 71 m, while the other side has boundaries sized at 74m and 80m respectively. Similarly, the straighter boundaries vary. One of the straight boundary is huge at 79m while the other straight boundary is the shortest of them all, at 59m. There should be appreciable bounce on this surface, especially with the new ball. There is an even covering of green grass, the surface is very hard as well. Nothing much in terms of spin on this wicket. They will have to use their guile, angles and mix things up to be successful here, reckon JP Duminy and Daren Ganga, in their pitch report

18:36: How much will toss factor come into play?

To be honest, so far there have been 10 Night matches played in Abu Dhabi. And it has seen spoils by both teams batting first and chasing.

17.24–KKR vs RCB Live Updates: KKR pin hopes on Lockie Ferguson once again

New Zealand fast bowler Lockie Ferguson roared into the tournament with exceptional figures of 3/15 (four overs) besides 2/2 in the Super-Over to help KKR beat SRH in their previous fixture. It was the 29-year-old’s first match of the season and he stepped up at a time when their pace spearhead Pat Cummins was struggling to get wickets.

17.02–KKR vs RCB Live Updates: Key Player Battle- Eoin Morgan vs Washington Sundar

KKR have found a reliable middle-order batsman in Eoin Morgan. In six matches, the England ODI skipper has smashed 167 runs at a strike rate of 135.77. He has played the kind of unconventional cameos expected of him, using the reverse sweep and his batting crease to great effect. Morgan has the ability to unsettle bowlers with his unique style of play.

RCB spinner Washington Sundar is someone who loves keeping things simple, and does his job without much fuss. He is renowned in the IPL for bowling tight lines and stifling batsmen. Sundar has done an exceptional job in that context, going at under five runs at over even after having played six games.

Against CSK, Sundar dealt a massive blow to MS Dhoni’s men by dismissing Shane Watson and Faf du Plessis. With the ability he possesses, Morgan will look to put Sundar off his line. The spinner won’t succumb easily tough in what can be a tense battle.

16.01–KKR vs RCB Live Updates: Will Mr360 surprise us once more tonight?

In RCB’s last match against Rajasthan Royals, AB De Villiers put up an incredible dispolay. With RCB needing 35 runs to win in the last two overs of the game, De Villiers was simply outstanding and played a one of its kind knock in Dubai to steal the victory.

The 36-year-old first tore apart Jaydev Unadkat, who bowled the 19th over, with three consecutive sixes on first three balls of the over and then he smashed a six off ferocious Jofra Archer’s fourth delivery in the last over when his team required five to win on three balls.

15.17– KKR vs RCB Live Updates: Will KKR opt for Narine at the cost of out of form Russell?

IPL 2020 been a disappointing one for the big-hitting Caribbbean. After smashing the bowlers all over the park in the previous two seasons, a lot was expected from Russell this season. Kolkata Knight Riders had pinned their hopes on Russell but the West Indies all rounder hasn’t been at his usual best as he has struggled to perform with the bat.

On the other hand, Sunil Narine was reported for bowling with a Suspected Illegal Bowling Action during his team’s Dream11 Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 match against Kings XI Punjab in Abu Dhabi on October 10. Following the report, Narine was placed on the IPL Warning List.

However, the BCCI has now cleared the air surrounding Narine stating that his elbow bend is within the permissible limit but Narine needs to produce the same action while bowling as the tournament progresses. (Read More)

15:07 — KKR vs RCB Live Updates: Andre Russell’s form a big worry for KKR

Andre Russell (0/29 from 2 overs) turned out to be expensive partly due to the injury he sustained before the start of his final over, the others — Cummins, Varun Chakravarthy and Kuldeep Yadav — were economical.

KKR captain Eoin Morgan would also be worried about Russell’s form with the bat. The Caribbean all-rounder, also KKR’s leading run-scorer with 1,434 runs from 66 games, has failed to create the impact he usually makes in the batting order. It will also be interesting to see whether Morgan brings Sunil Narine back in the playing XI as the spinner has now been cleared of suspect action. With 127 wickets in 116 games, Narine is the top wicket taker for KKR.
