KKR vs RCB: Kolkata Knights Riders have slipped in the recent games and they need to pick themselves up soon. A week ago, they were challenging Chennai Super Kings for the top spot, but all of a sudden they find themselves struggling in the lower half of the table. The transition that took place in such a short period of time shows how a loss or win can have great impact or grave consequences.
Royal Challengers Bangalore, on the other hand, have not seen many fluctuations as they have been rock bottom from the start. The ill-fated RCB have won just one of their 8 matches so far and their tournament looks to be over if it is not over already. They have their pride to play for when they take the field against KKR.
