RCB will be over the moon after two back to back wins in the IPL 2021. Though their victories were not convincing, they held their nerves in crunch situations to get the results in their favour. Kolkata Knight Riders, on the other hand, too have performed well. They comprehensively defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad in their tournament opener but conceded a heartbreaking loss to Mumbai Indians in their second game. Both teams will be looking to win the upcoming game and further solidify their position in the IPL. Here are some interesting stats and facts you must know before the match.

Head to Head – Both KKR and RCB have been very competitive against each other. However, KKR is marginally ahead and have won 14 of the 26 matches. The remaining 12 games have been won by RCB. Since 2018, it’s 3-3 between the two teams.

Venue Stats – The match will be played the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. The surfaces there have been slightly sluggish in nature thus we have not seen many big totals as of yet. The stats say the same. The average 1st inning score at this venue in the last five games is a mere 155.6. Also, chasing is not the easiest task here. In those 5 games, teams chasing have lost 3 times.

Numbers game

4 – Glenn Maxwell has got off to a solid start in IPL 2021. The destructive Australian scored a half-century in the last game. Maxwell has aggregated 1603 runs in 81 IPL innings. He has also stroked 94 maximums. He needs another four sixes to complete a century of the sixes.

13 – Shubman Gill has scored 987 runs in 40 IPL innings and needs another 13 runs to complete 1000 runs in the T20 extravaganza.
