Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will be facing Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the 10th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024. The match is set to happen at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru, where KKR have not lost against RCB since 2015. Given the record of the visiting side, it promises to be a great game of cricket. Both teams would be high on confidence, having won their last match in the league. KKR will be highly confident about their chances. 

They defeated SRH despite being reduced to 51/4 at one stage in the match. The key for KKR would be to face RCB who will be high on confidence. The home side has some very good players in the lineup. In the opening order, RCB have the experienced batters like Faf Du Plessis and Virat Kohli. The great cricketers have formed the best opening pair for a team since the IPL 2023. In addition to it, RCB has some talented and emerging players who are willing to make a name for themselves.

Rajat Patidar, Mahipal Lomror, Anuj Rawat, Yash Dayal, and Mayank Dagar are some such players. In addition to it, RCB has some of the established stars who have played a lot in the last 2-3 years at the highest level. It includes the likes of Glenn Maxwell, Cameron Green, Alzarri Joseph, Lockie Ferguson, Dinesh Karthik, Mohammad Siraj, and so on. KKR would be up for the challenge given their better head-to-head record over RCB, In the IPL 2023, KKR defeated RCB in both games.

Take a look at the most probable XI of KKR against RCB in the IPL 2024:

Openers – Phil Salt and Sunil Narine

Sunil Narine was tried as the opener of KKR again. The star performer opened for KKR in the period 2017-19 where he was highly aggressive and played impactful knocks at the top. With the second opener not firing in the IPL 2023, the management decided to try him as the opener in the game against SRH. While the West Indian was dismissed early in the innings, he is liklely to get an extended run at the position. He has a great record against RCB.

To partner him at the top would be Phil Salt. The English gave a fantastic start for KKR against SRH. Due to the collapse at the other end, he resorted to anchoring from his end. Regardless, he registered a fifty on KKR’s debut. Salt will be aggressive from his end at the top which will allow others to bat the way they want. In addition to it, KKR has two more options for opening in KS Bharat and Rahmanullah Gurbaz both of whom can be fiery at the top and keep wickets.
