Match and Pitch Condition
Weather: There is a high chance of rain during the latter part of the game so DRS may come into play. Also, it wouldn’t be a surprise if the game is washed out.
Pitch Condition: The M.Chinnaswamy pitch has been on slower side in this season of IPL so another average scoring match can be expected with spinners doing the bulk of the job. The average score here this season has been around 140.
Spinners are expected to play a big role in the outcome of the match. The team winning the toss is likely to bowl first.
Royal Challengers Bangalore:
- They don’t seem to be getting their combinations right at all. Again a few changes can be expected.
- Tabraiz Shamsi might get a game this season in place of Shane Watson. Or they might include a pacer in place of Shane Watson.
- Also, Harpreet Singh or Vishnu Vinod may get a game in their last home fixture.
Kolkata Knight Riders:
- Robin Uthappa is expected to be back if he is fully fit.
- They might also look to bring in Piyush Chawla at expense of a pacer on a slowish wicket.
- Chris Lynn is most likely to sit out in this fixture too.
- Apart from that, rest of the squad is expected to be same.
