Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Kolkata Knight Riders

IPL 2022 is off to a tremendous start, with most of the games thus far being fiercely contested. Both the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and the Kolkata Knight Riders will be playing their second match (KKR). RCB was defeated by the Punjab Kings in their previous match, while KKR thrashed CSK in their first game.
Even if the recent head-to-head is loaded in favour of KKR, the IPL betting sites continue to favour RCB as the small favourite in this match. Could this be a worthwhile gamble to pursue? Let’s try to get a better look at it.
IPL 2022 match prediction and betting suggestions for RCB vs KKR. On March 30, 2022, the match will be held at the Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy in Mumbai.

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB)

Even though it lost the first match it played, RCB displayed some promising signals. It smashed 13 sixes in its inning, all of the batsmen got to bat, and Faf du Plessis shown that he is still a formidable force. Perhaps most crucially, Kohli bowled a fluent innings against the spinners, in which he was very enterprising.

RCB was nevertheless defeated, owing partly to their weak bowling performance. Wanindu Hasaranga, Mohammad Siraj, and Akash Deep had a game to remember. RCB has a lot of bowling depth on paper, and we expect them to put up a better fight this time.
In terms of batting depth and general squad balance, there’s a lot to admire here. The one thing we didn’t enjoy was the fact that RCB was forced to face a lot of dot balls early on, which ultimately cost them the game.

Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR)

KKR got off to a flying start in their first encounter, owing to Umesh Yadav’s excellent opening spell. He took two early wickets and did not bowl any freebies, which is not typically the case with Umesh Yadav. In the middle, Varun Chakravarthy and Sunil Narine snuffed out runs, while Andre Russell and Shivam Mavi let up runs in the end.

Venkatesh Iyer was not used in the previous match by KKR, but you can expect to see him bowl his arm over if the team requires it.

KKR’s batting performance was not particularly impressive, but it didn’t have to be. Ajinkya Rahane had a good game and could be a player to watch in the following matches. He enjoys starting the batting in Mumbai because the wickets suit his style.

Venkatesh Iyer, Nitish Rana, Shreyas Iyer, and Sam Billings lead a formidable team that also includes Andre Russell and Sunil Narine. This lineup has a lot of versatility as well as a lot of power.
We believe the KKR team is currently being undervalued by IPL betting platforms.
