Royals Challengers Bangalore will take on Kolkata Knight Riders in their second match in the Indian Premier League (IPL 2022) at the DY Patil Stadium on Wednesday.
The Knight Riders hold two titles under their belt in the tournament, while RCB is yet to win an IPL trophy. However, both teams have both produced some of the most thrilling matches in the history of the Indian Premier League.
The hosts will be looking for their first win as they lost to Punjab Kings in their opening game at the same venue.
Skipper Faf du Plessis scored 88 runs, and his team put up a total of 205, which was chased brilliantly by Punjab Kings with an over to spare.
Kolkata Knight Riders are coming into this game on the back of a win over Chennai Super Kings by six wickets in their opening game of the season.
The game between RCB and KKR is a special one due to their historical rivalry. The hosts have never won the tournament in the history of the competition, while KKR have won it two times, and were runners up last season.
