After Mumbai Indians (MI) demolished Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in their second match of IPL 2021, KKR’s confidence would have plummeted.
They bowled extremely well, but their middle-order batting crumbled. A double header takes place on Sunday at the MA Chidambaram stadium in Chennai. Their third match is against the fast-rising Royal Challengers. They have won three times over the Challengers. In fact, Virat Kohli’s men are the only team that has yet to taste defeat. With a net run rate of +0.175, RCB is sitting on top of the points table.
Sunrisers Hyderabad defeated the Knights by six runs in their previous game.

Probable best bowler of the match
While he has only picked up two wickets in IPL 2021, Mohammed Siraj has been the Challengers’ most economical bowler, with an average economy of under six. The best figures he had to do with KKR were 3/8 last year. They may benefit from his ability to bowl early on, since Kohli’s team will be hoping for him to disrupt the opposition’s batting
Probable best batsman of the match
Virat Kohli is currently batting at a strike rate of 113.79, scoring 66 runs in two games. So, he needs to perform better. Despite these poor numbers, the right-hander has compiled 725 runs in 23 innings against the Knights, with an average and strike rate of 40.28 and 130.16 respectively. He has also reached four fifties and his best score at Eden Gardens is 100.
