- RCB came back to winning ways after losing three games in a row.
- Virat Kohli has been in form with his bat ever since his comeback.
Royal Challengers Bangalore's (RCB) journey in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2017 has been a rough one. They have managed to win only two matches out of the six they have played. But three of them were without their superstar skipper Virat Kohli. But that cannot be an excuse for the kind of cricket they have been playing.
Ever since Kohli came back in action from his injury, their batting order looked much more solid than before. But alone Kohli cannot be doing everything for RCB. The others need to step to the plate as well. Since, they defeated Gujarat Lions in their last match, Kohli and co. will look to build on that momentum and add on to that. But they have a mountain ahead of them in the form of Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR).
Getting the better of KKR and that too at the Eden Gardens will be an uphill task but RCB have all kinds of artillery and ammunitions to get the job done.
Here are certain things that they need to do when they lock horns with one of the most threatening sides in IPL 2017:
## Virat Kohli has to win the toss and ask KKR to bat first. KKR loves to chase at the Eden Gardens and their success rate is astounding.
## Kohli-Gayle partnership has to fire at the top of the order at any cost.
## The bowlers cannot let KKR to get off to a great start as they have done in almost in all of their matches they have played in IPL 2017.
## KKR batsmen have contributed wonderfully. If one fails, another steps to the occasion. Kohli has to curb that and for that he will be needing ploys.
## RCB batsmen cannot fall prey to the spinning department of Gautam Gambhir and co.
