IPL 2022 KKR vs RCB: Match preview, head-to-head and sponsors

In the head-to-head competition between the two teams, KKR have the advantage.

In the sixth match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022, the arch-rivals Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will play against each other at the DY Patil Sports Academy in Navi Mumbai on Wednesday, March 30 at 7:30 PM IST.

Kolkata Knight Riders will be heading into this fixture on the back of an emphatic six-wicket victory against the defending champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK). The Knight Riders will look to carry their momentum from the previous game and earn two more important points. The bowling unit of the two-time IPL winners impressed in the season opener. Umesh Yadav managed to swing the ball well, the spin duo of Sunil Narine and Varun Chakravarthy also held back the CSK batters. The batting line-up of KKR looks well balanced with a proper blend of youth and experience.

On the other end, Faf du Plessis‘ Royal Challengers Bangalore will play their second game of the season after facing a defeat against Punjab Kings (PBKS) on Sunday. RCB displayed an outstanding batting effort by posting a total of over 200. Faf helmed the batting line-up, Virat Kohli and Dinesh Karthik also made some vital contributions. The franchise’s bowling unit didn’t live up to the expectations as the Banglore-based team couldn’t defend such a robust target. Ahead of the upcoming match, Bangalore will look to sort their bowling issues and clinch their maiden victory of the season.

In the head-to-head competition between the two teams, KKR have the advantage. The two teams have locked horns against each other on 29 occasions, the Shahrukh Khan-backed franchise won 16 games while RCB emerged victorious on 13 instances.

In the last outing between the two teams, Kolkata won the fixture by four wickets.
