IPL 2024 RCB vs KKR: Match preview, head-to-head and streaming details

Statistically, KKR hold a slight edge in head-to-head encounters against RCB.

The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 heats up with its 10th match pitting Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the iconic M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. The match kicks off on Friday, March 29 at 7:30 PM IST.

Both teams come into the encounter with contrasting fortunes from their previous outings. RCB, having bounced back from a season-opening defeat, secured a last-over victory against Punjab Kings (PBKS). Virat Kohli, with a match-winning 77 runs, spearheaded their batting charge. Dinesh Karthik‘s late flourish with an unbeaten 28 off just 10 balls solidified the win for the home side.

Meanwhile, KKR secured a narrow victory in their opening match against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). Andre Russell, the explosive all-rounder, showcased his power with a brilliant 64. Young pacer Harshit Rana displayed nerves of steel in the final over, clinching the win for his team by a mere four runs.

An intriguing subplot lies in the battle between Sunil Narine and Virat. Narine, boasting the most wickets for KKR against RCB (23), has dismissed the former Indian skipper four times, conceding only 106 runs. However, the 35-year-old batter holds the distinction of being the highest run-scorer against KKR.

One can vividly recall Rinku Singh‘s explosive innings against RCB pacer Yash Dayal, who used to play for Gujarat Titans (GT) last season. Singh’s five sixes in a single over against Dayal propelled him to stardom and etched himself into IPL history. This encounter adds another layer of intrigue to the upcoming clash.


Statistically, KKR hold a slight edge in head-to-head encounters against RCB. They have emerged victorious in 18 out of the 32 matches between the two sides, so far. RCB’s home ground historically favours KKR, with the two-time IPL champions managing seven wins out of eleven encounters at this venue.

With both teams eager to solidify their positions on the points table, the stage is set for a high-octane encounter. RCB, fueled by home advantage and a recent win, will seek to maintain their momentum. KKR, with their established record against RCB and a winning start to the season, will be determined to prove their prowess.
