Today the Eliminator match of IPL 2021 will be played, in which Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will compete. Both the teams will meet at Sharjah Cricket Stadium from 7.30 pm onwards. It is a do or die match for both the teams, as the losing team will be eliminated from the race for the final. At the same time, the winning team will clash with Delhi Capitals in Qualifier 2. RCB has made it to the playoffs with 18 points after a stellar performance on the league stage. Virat Sena finished third in the points table. KKR played better in the second leg as compared to the first leg. Kolkata finished fourth in the table with 14 points.
Bangalore and Kolkata will face each other for the third time in the current season. When both of them met in the league stage, they had won one match each. At the same time, when it comes to a total of 29 matches played in IPL between RCB and KKR, Kolkata has the upper hand. While KKR won 16 matches, RCB hoisted the flag of victory 13 times.
Royal Challengers Bangalore won their last league match by 7 wickets. Bangalore beat Delhi on the last ball. RCB would like to maintain this momentum in the Eliminator. RCBs playing XI is unlikely to change. Virat Kohli would like to go with the winning combination. On the other hand, Kolkata has got a scintillating 86-run win against Rajasthan Royals in the last league match. However, despite that, there could be a change in KKRs team. Out of several matches due to injury, swashbuckling all-rounder Andre Russell may return to the playing XI. Recently, KKR chief advisor David Hussey had said that Russell is likely to be fit till the playoffs.
Fans can enjoy the match live on Star Sports Network, Jio TV and Disney + Hotstar.
