IPL 2021: RCB vs. KKR Eliminator – Prediction on Which Team is Likely to Win?

On Monday, October 11, 2021, Royal Challengers Bangalore will face Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium. This match is long-awaited as both of these teams have shown splendid results in the earlier played games.

RCB has given consistent records from the beginning of this edition. They have played 14 matches up to now, where they have 10 wins and have finished third on the points table. For the captain of RCB, Virat Kohli, this might be the last match as the RCB skipper. Hence, this team will hunger for victory to ensure their leader leaves the field with a win.

KKR on the other hand had earlier been off the track, but the recent results in the UAE have brought a smile to the faces of the KKR fans. They have also played 14 matches and won 7 and are fourth on the points table. They were able to make it to the playoffs after they had missed doing so in the last two seasons. But they are missing a balance in their playing XI after Andre Russel was injured. But even with Russel’s absence, Venkatesh Iyer has been giving the required support with Shubman Gill.

In IPL history, these two teams have played against each other 29 times, where KKR has won 16 games while RCB has 13 wins.

This match will be a knock-out match and both teams will be looking forward to winning it as the losing team will not get into Qualifiers 2.
