The Eliminator of IPL 2021 will see Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) lock horns against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium in Sharjah on Monday. The winner of this game will fight out against Delhi Capitals (DC) in Qualifier 2 on Wednesday.
KKR have finally made it to the playoffs after missing out by inches in the last two seasons. Ever since they arrived in the UAE, the Knight Riders have played an aggressive brand of cricket that suits their plight. However, the absence of all-rounder Andre Russell has hurt them badly in achieving a perfect balance in their playing XI.
However, Venkatesh Iyer has provided the much-needed firepower at the top and with Shubman Gill and Rahul Tripathi chipping in with useful contributions whenever needed has made KKR the team to beat in this tournament.

On the other hand, RCB have looked like a complete side this season with the addition of Glenn Maxwell in the middle order. Although they had their fair share of ups and downs, RCB have managed to come back everytime they were left stranded.
This could well be Kohli’s final match as RCB captain and that’s a dangerous prospect. It gives the players the additional hunger to ensure Kohli steps down from the position with a title in hand.
