Royal Challengers Bangalore is ready to face Kolkata Knight Riders in 36th match of this IPL, which will be played at Chinnaswamy Stadium Bangalore on 26th April. KKR have won only two matches in this season and they beat RCB in their previous match. The winning margin was huge and that’s why RCB would like to comeback against KKR.
However, KKR is searching for a third win in this season to continue their presence in the IPL for the playoffs. RCB won four out of seven matches and they would take revenge in this match for that humiliating loss.
