IPL 2021: RCB And KKR Face-Off At The Eliminator Match

Two arch-rivals, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kolkata Knight Riders, will be locking horns tonight at the eliminator game of the Indian Premier League 2021 edition. The eliminator match is a deciding match for who will move ahead and who will go out from the race of winning the IPL 2021 trophy. The team who wins the match today will lock horns with the loser of Qualifier 1 on 13th October, and the team that loses today will have to pack their bags and say bye bye to IPL 2021. Let’s see what the RCB vs KKR match preview is hinting at! 

Match Preview 

Royal Challengers Bangalore

The Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore have secured 9 winnings out of the 14 games they have played so far. Standing at 3rd place in the IPL 2021 points table, RCB last played against the Delhi Capitals during the final group stage match. With KS Bharat being the star of the game, Royal Challengers Bangalore chased down the runs put by Delhi Capitals on the scoreboard. 

Kolkata Knight Riders

Kolkata Knight Riders did start it slow, and it seemed like they won’t have a great IPL season. However, the Dubai leg turned out to be a game-changer for the Eoin Morgan-led team. At the halfway, KKR was placed at 2nd last position in the IPL 2021 points charts, but the players made a much-needed comeback in the latter half of the IPL season by registering their team to the IPL 2021 playoffs and also maintaining the highest Net Run Rate amongst all teams. In the last encounter with Rajasthan Royals, Kolkata Knight Riders crushed the Royals in their final league stage game.
