    Indian Premier League (Match 39) - 21 October, 2020 - RCB [85/2] beat KKR [84/8] by 8 wickets

    What: KKR vs RCB, Match 39, 6pm local time, 7:30pm IST

    Where: Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi

    What to expect:The wicket at Abu Dhabi hasn't been ideal for stroke-making but teams batting second have had better conditions at their disposal in the last two evening matches. If the CSK-RR contest is a marker to rely on, the bowlers can expect to have another good day at the office.

    Team news:

    Kolkata Knight Riders

    A half-fit Andre Russell was unable to defend 18 in the final over against SRH. If the hamstring injury isn't too serious, the think-tank will continue to bank on the allrounder to turn things around with the bat. Bar any forced injury-related changes, KKR should retain the same side.

    Probable XI: Shubman Gill, Rahul Tripathi, Nitish Rana, Eoin Morgan (c), Andre Russell/Chris Green, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Pat Cummins, Shivam Mavi, Kuldeep Yadav, Lockie Ferguson, Varun Chakravarthy.

    Probably best way to use Siraj is like a Test Bowler, use him with new ball to pick wickets!

    Lol you guys are stupid for underestimating Siraj.
    I told you all already he is a very good red ball player. Look at his first class performances and stats. He is not a good T20 player but that doesn't mean he hasn't got the skills to translate into T20 format from red ball cricket.

    It is the first time a team's bowler have bowled THREE maiden overs in an IPL match.

    And it's RCBT

    Umesh
    Saini
    Siraj

    Losing both Bhuvi and Ishant is still a concern for us. Not too convinced on Umesh with kookaburra.

    siraj is very good but porel deserves a chance. Porel is a seriously good talent. saini and porel shoild be picked. Definite no to thakur. Thakur has connections i know but it would be blasphemous to pick him over porel or siraj.

    If I were Kohli, today I would have destroyed KKR’s NRR, so that if they are to make it for the cut, it has to be through higher points.

    Mccullum as a coach is a joke. I remember when he was flopping as captain in PSL you said there was a reason why franchises had never made him captain.

    Our bowling is top quality. Ishant and Bhuvi will be sorely missed but it doesn't matter. We can also use porel.

    Batting is where we need to focus on. We need Rahul at number 5. Number 6 vihari or pant. 7 pandya or pant.

    Yes pandya might not be a great player but he adds balance and gives our bowlers rest. That is crucial. He can bat a bit when the fats bowers get tired.

    Well then RCB would have just gone berserk from the first ball and tried to chase this down in 8 overs or something.

    Golden chance of setting the NRR straight (and destroying KKR's) missed.

    Yeah. Bhuvi would have been crucial for the pink ball Test. Don't think Porel is anywhere near the test team.

    Agree with Rahul at no.5 instead of Rahane.
