    KKR vs RCB Live: Here’s what Dinesh Karthik said before the match

    “There is a good nervous energy around the group which shows that we care, we had a good start, but we also want to keep continuing the same sort of process and momentum we can achieve over a period of games is what’s gonna help us through this IPL. This first month is all about making sure you get the process right and not get too ahead of yourself the second month is where it really counts and you need make sure all your guns blazing and have that constant energy through that second month which is always gonna help you cross the line. There’s gonna be a lot of support for us, that’s one great thing. The pitch, it looks very different to what it could be, so to see how it will behave – is it gonna turn, is it gonna have less bounce or is it gonna be the usual Eden Gardens wicket which obviously has a lot of runs in it. So, we gotta assess that and make sure we got on top of that real quick.”

    KKR vs RCB Live: Here’s what Tim Southee said before the match

    “Guys are excited to be back here. Like most teams, it’s just not the captain, there’s a number of different leaders throughout teams that help as well. There’s number of guys that played a lot of T20 and IPL cricket, Nitish had an experience of captaining Delhi in domestic cricket here, so he is not an inexperienced captain. IN IPL, it is his first time, but he has done a great job so far. There’s a couple of class players top of the order (for RCB) that played for a long time and when you play against guys for a long period of time they obviously know a bit about you and hopefully you know a little bit about them as well. They had a great start to the IPL and hopefully we can get off to a winning start here at the Eden Gardens.”

    KKR vs RCB Live: KKR no pushover!

    On the bowling front, the likes of Tim Southee and Sunil Narine leaked runs, something they will have to address. Narine looked to have lost his mystery ball as the Punjab batters took him to the cleaners.

  • 17:19 (IST)

    KKR vs RCB: KKR’s struggles!

    KKR looked a shadow of their past in their season-opener, which was interrupted by a floodlight glitch before the skies opened up.

    Iyer’s absence has made the batting feeble. A quick-fire fifty-run partnership between Andre Russell and Venkatesh Iyer, who was promoted to No. 4, was the highlight of their batting against Punjab.

  • 16:48 (IST)

    KKR vs RCB Live: RCB Predicted XI –
