The Kolkata Knight Riders’ playing XI against Royal Challengers Bangalore is expected to see this enchanting change.
There is a challenge before Royal Challengers Bangalore. Such a challenge that he has not been able to overcome in two of the last three matches. RCB, led by Virat Kohli, is to field against Kolkata Knight Riders on Monday. Even though KKR’s performance in Eoin Morgan’s captaincy has not been so special, there is a genie in Morgan’s lamp that can determine Virat’s defeat. It is being said about Shakib Al Hasan. That is because out of the last three matches played by Bangalore, he has lost in two and both the reasons for the defeat have been left-arm spinners. Actually, in the match played against Chennai Super Kings Bangalore, he was single handedly defeated by Ravindra Jadeja, while in the match against Punjab Kings, he was poorly written by left-arm spinner Harpreet Brar.
Punjab’s left-arm spinner Harpreet Brar even blew away the RCB. Harpreet took three important wickets for just 19 runs in 4 overs in the match against Bangalore. The amazing thing is that the 25-year-old bowler laid the foundation for Punjab’s victory in just 7 balls by dismissing RCB captain Virat Kohli, Australian batsman Glenn Maxwell and South African coach AB de Villiers. Among them, Kohli and Maxwell bolted on consecutive balls. Earlier, RCB also faced problems against Chennai Super Kings. Then Ravindra Jadeja broke RCB’s back by taking three wickets for 13 runs in 4 overs. Jadeja dismissed Washington Sundar, Glenn Maxwell and AB de Villiers. The interesting thing is that while Jadeja rocked the bat with 62 runs off just 28 balls, Harpreet also played a crucial innings of 25 runs off 17 balls.
