Match 35 of IPL 2021 will see arch-rivals Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) go up against each other on Friday at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium. CSK and RCB, who are placed second and third in the points table respectively, have had a contrasting start to the UAE leg of the tournament.
RCB’s batting looked rusty in the first match against KKR and would hope to bounce back in style. The spotlight will be on captain Virat Kohli, who has struggled to put runs under his belt in recent times. With the game scheduled to take place in Sharjah, a couple of changes in the playing XI are on the cards for RCB.
Weapons of mass run scoring.

On the other hand, CSK came out of their poor run in the UAE, beating defending champions Mumbai Indians in their first encounter. They performed like a well-oiled machine with Ruturaj Gaikwad stealing the show with a swashbuckling knock. Sam Curran, who will be available for selection after missing the first game, is likely to warm the benches after a dream performance by Dwayne Bravo against MI.
