IPL 2021

RCB had won the toss and opted to bat first against KKR in match 10 of the Indian Premier League at Chepauk on Sunday. In the second over, Kohli tried to hit KKR’s mystery spinner over the rope in the second over of the game but mistimed the carrom ball as Rahul Tripathi took a splendid catch. Chakravarthy then dismissed Rajat Patidar- whom RCB brought in for his spin playing prowess – on a brilliant googly. Prasidh Krishna also got one wicket to his name in Devdutt Padikkal.
Eoin Morgan’s Kolkata will need something big from his openers Nitish Rana and Shubman Gill to chase the big total. Also, Andre Russell will have to shake off his rustiness to keep Kolkata in the playoffs race.
