KKR vs RCB, IPL 2021: Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore is set to lock horns with a struggling Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) side tonight in Ahmedabad. Incidentally, today’s match marks the 200th IPL appearance for skipper Virat Kohli. Kohli becomes the first RCB player and only the fifth cricketer in IPL history to reach the milestone. Previously, MS Dhoni, Rohit Sharma, Siensh Karthik and Suresh Raina have achieved the feat.
Earlier yesterday, RCB announced it will be sporting a special “blue jersey” in one of the upcoming games to pay respect and show solidarity to all the front-line heroes who have led the fight against coronavirus pandemic. “RCB has identified key areas where much-needed help is required immediately in healthcare infrastructure related to Oxygen support in Bangalore and other cities, and will be making a financial contribution towards this,” said Kohli in a video posted on RCB’s Twitter.
