Kolkata: Kolkata Knight Riders take on Royal Challengers Bangalore in Match 48 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) today.
The way RCB mauled Gujarat Lions in their previous match, it remains to be seen whether KKR bowlers can contain the likes of Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers and Shane Watson.
Chris Gayle, who is yet to score a fifty this season, has been terribly out of form and after he was dropped midway, one shouldn't be surprised if RCB hit the field without the big-hitting West Indian today.
KKR on the other hand would want to become the table-toppers once again, which is possible only if they register a big win against Bangalore.
