IPL Fantasy Tips - Match 3 - Kolkata Knight Riders vs Royal Challengers Bangalore

  • Can Kohli repeat his 2016 heroics this time

When RCB last played against KKR at the Eden Gardens in 2017, RCB suffered an embarrassing defeat after being bowled out for a paltry 49 in 9.4 overs - the lowest team total of the tournament so far. Happy start for Karthik as a captain. In the RCB camp though, things look a lot better as the side appears to be well-balanced for the first time in 11 years.

KKR vs RCB Live score: In the third match of IPL 2018, Dinesh Karthik's Kolkata Knight Riders meets Virat Kohli's Royal Challengers Bangalore at Kolkata. Just in 2016, Virat Kohli, the Royal Challengers captain, called out Sarfaraz Khan for his fielding and fitness. But once de Villers returned to the pavilion, the Bangalore franchise lost their way as wickets fell in quick succession.

Opener Brendon McCullum set it up for RCB with a sensational 27-ball 43 (6x4, 2x6) while AB de Villiers made the Eden Gardens crowd cheer for them with his scintillating 23-ball 44, which was studded with five mouth-watering sixes and one boundary. And yet, he was one of three players retained, alongside AB de Villiers and Kohli himself.

Kolkata: Dinesh Karthik (c & wk), Robin Uthappa (vc & wk), Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Tom Curran, Chris Lynn, Mitchell Johnson, Piyush Chawla, Kuldeep Yadav, Shubman Gill, Ishank Jaggi, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Nitish Rana, Vinay Kumar, Apoorv Wankhade, Rinku Singh, Shivam Mavi, Cameron Delport, Javon Searles. So, fellow Aussie Mitchell Johnson will fill the void.

In the process, Virat Kohli's team continued its poor run in the IPL despite the shake-up they did to their batting-heavy squad in the auctions.

It wasn't unfamiliar territory for RCB when Narine walked out with Chris Lynn for the chase. After clobbering the right-arm pacer for a six over long-on, Narine made room and struck two straight fours on the off side.

So you'd think RCB would have had new plans for the Trinidadian, but he seemed to take them by surprise once again. The bowling attack still does not inspire much confidence though, with massive responsibility on the shoulders of Chris Woakes and Yuzvendra Chahal.

Spin returned for the fifth over, this time in the shape of Washington Sundar, but even the Powerplay specialist wasn't spared.

Sunil Narine has increasingly proven his utility as a batsman in recent years. Two wickets also fell in that over.
