SRK Will Be At Eden To Cheer For KKR's Opening Tie

However, Kolkata won with seven balls to spare against an attack including former KKR all-rounder Chris Woakes (3-36) thanks to contributions from captain Dinesh Karthik (35no), Rana (34) and Andre Russell (15). However, RCB were once again left wondering with their bowling line-up which leaked runs and failed to defend a formidable score of 176 runs.

KKR took wickets at regular intervals but in the last over, Mandeep's pyrotechnics guided RCB to a fighting total at the packed Eden Gardens. But his next two deliveries saw De Villiers mistime a pull shot into the hands of Mitchell Johnson, and then slide one through the defence of Virat Kohli. With new and improved upgrades in the side like McCullum, de Kock, Chris Woakes and Umesh Yadav, to go with the retained core of Kohli, de Villiers, Chahal and Sarfaraz Khan, RCB will look to get off on a winning note. KKR however were off to a bad start as Vinay Kumar (2/30) leaked 14 runs in the first over, McCullum flicking him down the leg side for a four in the very first ball.

Under the leadership of Virat Kohli, the Royal Challengers will begin their IPL campaign against Dinesh Karthik's Kolkata Knight Riders at the Eden Gardens on April 8. So there is a more chance for KKR to win the game today. But Narine castled him with a short delivery which held back a bit.

Narine was brought on in the first over after Powerplay and bowled four dot balls to Kohli, conceding just two runs. He made 44 runs off 23 balls. He took charge immediately, launching Kuldeep for two sixes. RCB were blown away by Kolkata's bowlers previous year after being bowled for a lowly 49 runs. Look out for Nitish Rana who enjoyed a productive IPL 10 with Mumbai. Kohli is clear at [3.4] but AB De Villiers, after issues with injury, looked somewhere close to his best towards the end of the South African global season and he's the pick at a generous [4.3].

On Tuesday, a Marine Corps helicopter crashed in California and a Marine Corps AV-8B Harrier jet crashed in east Africa. It is the second plane crash at Nellis Air Force Base in a matter of months following a non-fatal crash in January.

KKR go into the match with happy memories of bundling out RCB for the lowest ever IPL total (49) here past year, while in the return leg Narine smashed the tournament's fastest fifty (17 ball 54 ) as they made a double over Kohli's side in 2017.

RCB, much like they always do, lost the momentum completely and the scoring rate came down considerably. They had a partnership of 38 runs in 26 balls.
