As the 17th edition of the Indian Premier League completes 10 matches on March 29, a set of stars will be featured in the clash between RCB and KKR in Bengaluru.

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) are scheduled to face off in the ongoing Indian Premier League 2024 on Friday, March 29, at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore.

Star batter Virat Kohli played a pivotal role, scoring 77 runs to steer his team to victory, with Dinesh Karthik’s quick-fire unbeaten 28 off 10 balls sealing the win for the Bengaluru franchise.

Meanwhile, KKR, fresh off a narrow win in their season opener against Sunrisers Hyderabad, are looking to maintain their momentum and solidify their early position in the tournament. The explosive West Indian all-rounder Andre Russell reminded everyone of his prowess with a brilliant 64-run knock, while young Harshit Rana’s nerveless final over secured victory for his team by four runs.

With short boundaries and a rapid outfield, chasing down targets becomes relatively easier, making it crucial for teams batting first to post substantial scores, ideally exceeding 200 runs, to stay competitive in the match given the favorable conditions for batsmen.
