The Indian Premier League is off to a flying start and at this point in the tournament, each team has played one match. This will be the sixth match of the IPL with the Royal Challengers Bangalore facing the Kolkata Knight Riders at the Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy and we will share our match prediction today . Following the opening matches, the Royal Challengers Bangalore are currently ninth on the points table while the Kolkata Knight Riders are third. The last time the teams faced each other was in the Eliminator round of the playoffs last year, where the Riders clinched the victory.

Will they be able to keep up their winning streak? This is our IPL prediction of who will win this match.

Royal Challengers Bangalore Team Preview

The Royal Challengers Bangalore lost their first match against the Punjab Kings with five wickets with 6 balls left. Skipper Faf du Plessis remarked that his squad’s batting was strong however they gave away too many chances and dropped catches, which ultimately led to their loss. Despite the end result, they began with a very solid start to the match. The Challengers set a gigantic score of 205 for their opponents to chase down, with notable great form from 37-year-old du Plessis who scored 88 runs from 57 balls, Virat Kohli who scored 41 runs (not out) from 29 balls, and Dinesh Karthik who scored 32 runs (not out) from 14 balls.

However the same couldn’t be said for their bowlers. Star bowler David Willey scored an economy of 9.33 and will feel the pressure to bounce back in the next match. The middle-overs is the place where the bowlers need to do better. The return of Josh Hazlewood will be welcomed for their next match against Rajasthan Royals and his accuracy and leadership of the bowling attack could provide the much needed lift for the team.

If you want to take part in online cricket betting for this match, we will share a few of our opinions. We have our eyes on Mohammed Siraj to be the IPL betting top wicket-taker as he has been using the new ball to his advantage.

Kolkata Knight Riders Team Preview

The Kolkata Knight Riders got off to a cracking start to the tournament. They defeated the Chennai Super Kings in their opener match by 6 wickets. The batting openers Venkatesh Iyer and Ajinkya Rahane managed to chase the initial score from the CSK with relative ease. Rahane closely missed out on a fifty with 44 runs and a strike rate of 129.41 from 34 balls. Despite Sam Billings getting out at the death, the team sailed to victory without the need for Andre Russell and Sunil Narine.

Regarding the bowlers, veteran Indian pacer Umesh Yadav was named Player of the Match due to his performance in the Powerplay. Although Pat Cummins will again be unavailable for this match, and for Iyer and the squad, his reputation and experience will still be missed. Skipper Shreyas Iyer will certainly be pleased with their initial match and will of course want to follow the same winning plan for this match.

For our Kolkata Knight Riders IPL prediction wagers, we think that Rahane or Nitish Rana are good choices for top batsmen. This is one of the most popular markets at IPL betting sites for its simplicity.

Toss Prediction

With many of the matches in the IPL this year starting in the evening, we are going to see a common running factor between the majority of them. This, of course, is the threat of dew settling during the match, which becomes even more apparent during the second innings. It is unlikely to see a captain deciding at the coin toss to bat first as they will want to minimise any factors that will make it more challenging while fielding. So, our toss prediction is that the winning captain will decide to bowl first.

Pitch Conditions

The Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy in Mumbai is likely to offer a decent bowling track for the teams. Due to the red clay, the surface offers bounce and pace, so we are likely to see the bowlers enjoying this pitch. Additionally, this is regarded as a balanced pitch with something for both pacers and spinners.

Our Match Prediction

Now that we have covered all the information, who do we predict will win? Despite their rocky start to the IPL 2022, we are backing the Royal Challengers Bangalore to win the match today.
