In their last three fixtures, RCB and KKR have won two and crashed to a defeat. Both of the outfits' defeats have come against Delhi Capitals (DC).
With the season finally gaining momentum, it looks like RCB skipper Virat Kohli has finally found his feet in the tournament. Having started on a poor note, the Indian cricketer slammed an unbeaten 90-run knock vs Chennai Super Kings in his side's previous match, which they won comfortably. Against KKR, he will be facing Pat Cummins, who has a point to prove in the ongoing edition. Although, the Australian pacer has only registered two wickets in six matches this season.
