Royal Challengers Bangalore
Tactics & Matchups: In IPL 2020, RCB were the only team to score under 7 runs per over in the middle overs (7 to 15). Although Glenn Maxwell has been a good addition to the middle order in that regard, the problem hasn’t entirely gone away for Kohli and Co. In the two games this season, RCB have totalled 60/3 (vs MI) and 56/3 (vs SRH) in the middle overs. Out of that, Kohli has contributed 13 off 17 (vs MI) and 14 off 15 balls (vs SRH) and hit a total of one boundary in that phase across both the innings. RCB will want him to go harder at the top during the powerplay overs.
Probable XI: Virat Kohli(c), Devdutt Padikkal, Shahbaz Ahmed, Glenn Maxwell, AB de Villiers(w), Washington Sundar, Daniel Christian, Kyle Jamieson, Harshal Patel, Mohammed Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal.

Kolkata Knight Riders
Tactics & Matchups: Morgan has relied on Andre Russell to bowl the final few overs in both the games so far but AB de Villiers finds it easy to pick runs off the pacer, having scored at a strike-rate of 221.74 over the years. It will be something to consider for Morgan while shuffling his bowlers around.
Russell fares much better with the bat against RCB. He’s totalled 339 runs at a strike rate of over 223 but his recent returns belie those stats. Since IPL 2020, Russell has averaged 17.64 across 18 T20 innings, with only one fifty-plus score and will need to step up in the middle-order that’s already under some pressure.
Probable XI: Nitish Rana, Shubman Gill, Rahul Tripathi, Eoin Morgan(c), Andre Russell, Dinesh Karthik(w), Shakib Al Hasan, Pat Cummins, Harbhajan Singh, Prasidh Krishna, Varun Chakravarthy.
