RCB vs KKR Live Score IPL 2013 Match 12 - Bangalore vs Kolkata
The Royal Challengers Bangalore, who are set clash with the Kolkata Knight Riders at the Chinnaswamy Stadium today, would be going into the match with a new found confidence.
In their previous match, the Challengers defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad with a convincing victory. Skipper Virat Kohli’s performance was outstanding as he lead his team from the front hammering an unbeaten quickfire 93 off just 47 deliveries.
RCB’s victory against SRH came after thier defeat in a match which ended in a super over against the same opponents.
While the Challengers would go into their next match feeling positive and very confident, the same cannot be said for the Knights who have managed to draw blood on a single instance from the two matches they played this season.
KKR won the tournament opener against the Delhi Daredevils with a comfortable six wickets victory but failed to repeat the same when they lost to Rajasthan Royals after being bundled out for 125, falling 19 runs short.
The Knights have players to boast off, with the likes of skipper Gautam Gambhir, Yusuf Pathan, Jacques Kallis, Brett Lee and Sunil Narine making their presence felt in the playing XI but if they fail to fire today, then RCB is sure to run away with the match.
The Challengers also have a line up which could intimidate the opponents. The name ‘Chris Gayle’ is enough to send a chill done the spines of the rivals. And with players like Kohli, AB De Villiers and Muttiah Muralitharan among the others, the Challengers can be counted as one of the best teams in the Indian Premier League.
