Kaif’s Take On The Game
Former cricketer Mohammad Kaif reckoned that Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) didn’t need to make any changes from their last game as they had enough to travel for the win.
Unfortunately, even after putting up 205 on the board, RCB did not defend as their bowlers were wayward and conceded tons of extras. As for KKR, Kaif felt the team was clinical against CSK and may also stick with an equivalent combination.
Comparing the strengths of both the teams, Kaif believes that KKR features a better team on paper at a minimum and will nicely end up grabbing their second victory of the season and move to the highest of the table.
“Despite toss being the standard favorite and an enormous factor, I’d still consider KKR ahead as they appear the higher side on paper. They need to start well and have an honest bowling unit. So, KKR is slightly ahead,” Kaif added.
The match for sure is going to be exciting for everyone. Both the teams are coming to the pitch to win. Furthermore, they will do everything in their textbooks to win this fixture.
