|KKR Take on RCB today; Can they Salvage Some Pride?|
|Pitched By Sharad with C360 Reporter|
|Tuesday, 12 May 2009|
The Kolkata Knight Riders have crashed to 6 successive defeats in their last 6 matches and they take on the Royal Challengers Bangalore today in a match that they will hope they can win to help salvage some pride in the DLF IPL 2009 competition. The Bangalore team however will be viewing their match today as a chance to come back into the competition since they take on the weakest team in the competition, whom they have already beaten by 5 wickets on in a previous T20 match.
The cricket news for KKR is dismal to say the least, but today is the best chance they have to sneak a win as they take on Bangalore, who are right now last but one on the points table. One good thing for KKR is that they cannot go down any further and with nothing to lose and no chance to getting to the semi finals now, they will only be hoping for a face saving win today.
For their part Bangalore would sniff the chance of a win today, after back to back defeats in their last two matches against the Rajasthan Royals and Mumbai Indians. They will definitely be looking to better their meager tally of 8 points from 10 matches. There are several worries for Bangalore though, their international cricket talent such as Jacques Kallis, Mark Boucher have hardly set the score board ablaze. Much will depend on them and Indian batsmen Rahul Dravid and Robin Uthappa.
Bangalore would be very aware that this is do or die for them; any chance of making it to the semi finals means that they have to win today. In terms of the quality of opposition, KKR are their best bet. Bangalore would hope that they are able to break their own losing streak and continue KKR’s losing streak. At one point in the competition, just a week back to be precise, Bangalore were in the middle of a winning streak, winning three in a row, which they would be hoping for a return of.
