Fans can watch the Royal Challengers Bangalore vs. Kolkata Knight Riders match live online as RCB tries to protect its unbeaten record and move up the rankings in the the Pepsi IPL 2014.
In the 11th match of the season, both teams are picking up after a four-day break and trying to regain momentum. For Royal Challengers Bangalore, it’s a question of whether they can stay hot after trouncing the Dehli Daredevils in their opening match and then easily dispatching the defending champion Mumbai Indians in their second contest.
The Kolkata Knight Riders will be looking for a different kind of momentum, hoping to avenge a close loss to the Dehli Daredevils.
The teams will face off Thursday at 8 pm IST from Sharjah Cricket Stadium.
Fans who watch the Royal Challengers Bangalore vs. Kolkata Knight Riders cricket match live online will see whether RCB’s top run-getter Parthiv Paten can continue his fast start to the season.
As the IPL preview of the match notes, RCB has a strong lineup in Patel, Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Yuvraj Singh, and Albie Morkel.
KKR has plenty of offensive firepower as well, the preview notes.
“KKR too have enough depth in their batting – Piyush Chawla bats at No.8. But the one who holds the key to their success is their skipper, Gautam Gambhir. After two outings in Pepsi IPL 2014, the southpaw is yet to open his account, and he will be keen to avoid a hat-trick of ducks. Jacques Kallis will yet again be expected to play the anchor role, while Manish Pandey, who looked good in both the previous matches, will be keen to carry on his good form.”
