IPL 2018: KKR to take on RCB in Kolkata Sunday

Narine's new avatar as a pinch-hitting opener in Twenty20 cricket was on show once again on Sunday (April 8) at Eden Gardens, helping Kolkata Knight Riders get off to a winning start against Royal Challengers Bangalore in their IPL 2018 game. This was KKR's sixth win out of nine matches over RCB at the Eden Gardens.

Kolkata's innings, in contrast, got off to a flyer as Sunil Narine, the West Indies worldwide, smashed a 17-ball fifty.

Familiar faces who remain in the squad are the likes of Robin Uthappa, Piyush Chawla, Sunil Narine, Kuldeep Yadav and Andre Russell, who will all have a big role to play.

KKR have kept faith in legendary South African all-rounder Jacques Kallis who is the head coach along with Aussie Simon Katich as batting coach only roping in Zimbabwean Heath Streak to replace Laxmipathy Balaji as bowling coach.

With the fall of the two massive wickets, Rana put KKR right into the driver's seat.

With de Villiers blazing all guns at one point their run graph was looking past 200 but part-time off-spinner Rana produced twin dismissals in two balls - De Villiers and Kohli - to reduce RCB for 127/4 in 14.2 overs. Kohli is clear at [3.4] but AB De Villiers, after issues with injury, looked somewhere close to his best towards the end of the South African worldwide season and he's the pick at a generous [4.3].

Earlier, Brendon McCullum gave RCB hopes of a big total. However, the men in red and black still boast one of the deadliest batting sides with the likes of Kohli, AB de Villiers, Brendon McCullum, Sarfaraz Khan, Quinton de Kock and Corey Anderson. Giving a solid support to his partner McCullum, Kohli looked for quick singles at different parts of the ground to keep the scoreboard moving. He was helped along the way by Virat Kohli's strategy of using Yuzvendra Chahal in the first over and persisting with spin throughout the Powerplay, often without a long-off in place.

I've made a decision to ignore AB de Villiers for this match. He was then on 23. Rana, not getting another over was, however, bit shocking. It almost cost his wicket too when he was caught at long-on, but Mandeep Singh couldn't stop himself from stepping on the ropes.

Sarfraz Khan, who was retained by the franchise, managed just six runs with Johnson (1/30) taking his wicket while Mandeep and Woakes (5) fell to Vinay in the last over.

The two teams have contested in 20 matches in the IPL.
