Indian T20 League 2024

KOL vs BLR, 36th Match

 

Preview

The 36th match of the Indian T20 League 2024 will witness a terrific clash between Kolkata and Bengaluru at the iconic Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Sunday, April 21. 

KOL presently holds the second position in the league table while BLR is in the last spot struggling to find a win. 

Kolkata under the fine mentorship of Gautam Gambhir has won four of their six games whereas Bengaluru has only one win in their seven league matches.

Kolkata suffered an unfortunate defeat at the hands of table-toppers Rajasthan by 2 wickets despite posting a 200-plus target with Sunil Narine smashing 109 runs and picking 2 wickets respectively. Their bowlers must stand up to their expectations to return back to the winning track. 

Contrariwise, Bengaluru witnessed a defeat at the hands of Hyderabad by 25 runs in their previous game with Faf du Plessis and Dinesh Karthik contributing 62 and 83 runs respectively.

Kolkata has won 20 out of 34 games against Bengaluru in head-to-head battles and also defeated the Red Devils in the Ind T20 League’s reverse encounter.

Pitch and Weather Report

The iconic Eden Gardens, Kolkata is one of the biggest venues in India with deep boundaries. It provides a flat pitch which allows batters to play their strokes on the go. The pitch will favour fast bowlers in the early stages of the game. Spin bowlers can prove handy during the middle overs and the big boundaries will offer them extra protection to experiment with their lines and lengths. 

Clear skies are forecasted on match day with a temperature ranging from 29 to 42 degrees Celsius.

Match Prediction

Although Kolkata tasted defeat against Rajasthan and Chennai over their last three games, they are still in good form and are enjoying a good position in the Indian T20 League 2024. But Bengaluru are facing some serious issues and with Kolkata being too strong this season at their home ground, we expect them to win the Sunday afternoon match.
