In the 10th match of the ongoing IPL, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will clash with Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.

The Virat-Kohli led team has got off to a dream start with winning both their matches of IPL 2021. They will try to be consistent with their performances. The RCB team combination will remain the same.

After winning the first match against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), KKR lost the second one to Mumbai Indians (MI) due to their folly. Eoin Morgan will be looking to get back in rhythm, and also Harbhajan Singh will use his experience to take some wickets. More or less, they’ll play with the same team that played against MI in the last match.

Head-to-Head record

Played: 27 | Royal Challengers Bangalore: 12 | Kolkata Knight Riders: 15 | No Result: 0

Pitch Report:

MA Chidambaram stadium doesn’t offer a lot of swing or bounce. The pacers can exploit the wicket with their decisive use of slower ones. However, as seen in the previous matches of IPL 2021, it’s the spinners that can turn the game at crucial junctures.
