Virat Kohli-led RCB search for first win against Kolkata Knight Riders

BANGLORE : After losing their four games in a row, Royal Challengers Bangalore will hope they can finally pick up their first win when they host Kolkata Knight Riders on Friday. The confidence of the team must be on a low, considering both the batting and bowling departments have come off good for the side.

After a seven-wicket defeat against Rajasthan Royals, RCB skipper Virat Kohli said that his side will look to bring on right combinations of players in the upcoming games. It means that RCB might look to make some changes in the team and a few players might be rested.RCB’s biggest woe this season has been the top order. Apart from Parthiv Patel and AB de Villiers, none of the batsmen hold an average above 20. Skipper Kohli himself has just scored a single half century in the first four matches and has not been able to give a good opening partnership.

RCB have already tried Moeen Ali and Shimron Hetmyer at the top, who both have not clicked at the position. It seems the franchise is really regretting not getting any replacement for the opener Quinton de Kock. Going forward, RCB might look to give an opportunity to Heinrich Klaasen, who can open the innings with Parthiv Patel.
