Hello and welcome to Match 10 of the Indian T20 League between Kolkata and Bangalore in Chennai! Kolkata would look to get back to winning ways here. They would want their middle order to perform in this match. They have a good bowling attack. On the other hand, Bangalore would look to continue with their winning momentum. Their bowlers did well to defend 150 against Hyderabad and got over the line in an absolute thriller. Who will get two points at the end of 40 overs? Your guess is good as ours! Stay tuned for the toss and the team updates..
