The eliminator of Indian Premier League 2021 between Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Kolkata Knight Riders is happening today and whichever team will win tonight, they will face Delhi Capitals in the 2nd semi final on Wednesday, 13 Oct 2021. RCB has not won a single edition of IPL till date and this is Virat Kohli’s last season as captain of Bangalore so they will give their level best in this match.
Royal Challengers Bangalore won the toss and they have chosen to bat first. This seems to be a very interesting decision and a very dicey one because if we go by the ongoing trend in this tournament then most teams have preferred to go for the chase. Both the franchises are playing the unchanged playing xi’s today.
Todays eliminator match of IPL 2021 between RCB vs KKR will start at around 7:30 PM IST. This match will be played at Sharjah Cricket Stadium which is located in Sharjah, UAE.
Kolkata Knight Riders (Playing XI): Shubman Gill, Venkatesh Iyer, Nitish Rana, Rahul Tripathi, Eoin Morgan(c), Dinesh Karthik(w), Shakib Al Hasan, Sunil Narine, Lockie Ferguson, Shivam Mavi, Varun Chakaravarthy
Royal Challengers Bangalore (Playing XI): Virat Kohli(c), Devdutt Padikkal, Srikar Bharat(w), Glenn Maxwell, AB de Villiers, Daniel Christian, Shahbaz Ahmed, George Garton, Harshal Patel, Mohammed Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal
According to our prediction Kolkata Knight Riders will win todays eliminator match for IPL 2021. It appears that during the toss RCB skipper ‘Virat Kohli’ has made a big blunder by opting to bat and this poor decision will come back to bite them in this small Sharjah ground where no target is safe.
