Here are the three most important player battles to watch out for in the RCB-KKR match:

1) Sunil Narine vs Mohammed Siraj

Sunil Narine is not only a dangerous bowler but he is also equally dangerous with the bat. He is the leading run-scorer for KKR and hit a quick 22-ball 47-run against RCB in their last encounter. On the other hand, Mohammed Siraj has effective numbers against him. The pacer dismissed the opener twice in 11 balls by giving away just 12 runs.

2) Virat Kohli vs Harshit Rana

Virat Kohli is not only the leading run-scorer for RCB but also in the IPL 2024. He likes to take his time in the early overs. But once set up, he can play his shots all over the floor. On the other hand, Harshit Rana is a good bowler and is effective with his hard and slower balls. The last time RCB-KKR clashed, Kohli remained unbeaten and scored an impressive 83.

3) Dinesh Karthik vs Varun Chakaravarthy

Dinesh Karthik vs Varun Chakaravarthy will be one of the biggest fights between the KKR and RCB match. Dinesh Karthik is in red-hot form and has scored 226 runs. On the other hand, Varun Chakaravarthy has bowled quite well for KKR this season and has a lot of variations. Varun has already dismissed Karthik once in just five balls he bowled against him.
