Match: RCB vs KKR IPL T20 Match Prediction
Time: 30 March, 07:30 PM (IST)
Series: IPL T20 Match
Venue: Dr. D.Y. Patil Sports Academy - Navi Mumbai
Opener Faf du Plessis hit 88 runs from 57 balls against Punjab Kings and he is our pick for RCB’s highest run scorer against KKR. With the ball, Wanindu Hasaranga took 1-40 in the opening game but we are backing him to bounce back and be RCB’s top wicket taker in this match.
Ajinkya Rahane top scored for KKR with 44 runs from 34 balls against CSK and he is our tip for their highest run scorer in this game. Fast bowler Umesh Yadav took 2-20 from 4 overs on Saturday and is a strong choice for their top wicket taker against RCB.
Umesh Yadav was the standout bowler on this wicket in the tournament opener and we are predicting more success for him including taking the Player of the Match Award.
TV channels: This match will be shown live on Star Sports in India, Sky Cricket in the UK and Fox Sport in Australia. Flow Sports will broadcast in the Caribbean with SuperSport possessing the rights in South Africa.
Live Streaming: Fans can stream the match on Disney+ Hotstar and SkyGo
Weather & Pitch Report:
Humidity levels will increase as the fixture progresses with the temperature not dropping below 29 degrees throughout.
The surface in Navi Mumbai was ideal for batters and tough work for most of the bowlers in the first game. We expect a similar pacey wicket for this game

RCB vs KKR H2H:
RCB Team News:
Australian players Glenn Maxwell and Josh Hazlewood are both expected to not be available for this game after missing the opening match defeat to Punjab Kings. Although they lost comfortably by 5 wickets with six balls remaining, we expect RCB to select the same XI for this match.
KKR Team News:
Shreyas Iyer’s side will again be without the services of Australia’s Test captain Pat Cummins who has only just finished the Test series in Pakistan. KKR produced an excellent team performance against CSK in IPL 2022 with Umesh Yadav, Varun Chakravarthy and Sunil Narine all impressive with the ball.

The Sri Lankan bowling all-rounder was very expensive with the ball against Punjab Kings but still picked up the wicket of opener and captain Mayank Agarwal.
