Faf du Plessis led Royal Challengers Bangalore will be up against Shreyas Iyer's Kolkata Knight Riders and would look to bounce back from the heavy defeat against Punjab Kings that they received in their first match of the IPL 2022 season. The Knights of Kolkata on the other hand would be looking to get back to back when they take the field at the DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai.
Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Kolkata Knight Riders today's IPL 2022 match will begin at 07:30 Pm IST and 1400 hrs GMT. Thus the toss between Challengers skipper Faf du Plessis and Knight Riders captain Shreyas Iyer would take place 30 minutes before the match start time. Hence, RCB vs KKR toss would take place at 07:00 pm IST and 1330 hrs GMT.
Here's how the Playing 11 of RCB and KKR would look like
Since Glenn Maxwell and Josh Hazlewood won't be available for the match against KKR, the RCB will go with the same Playing 11 that they played against Punjab Kings. On the other hand, KKR will also have to go with the same Playing 11 that they played against Chennai Super Kings as they also don't have the services of Pat Cummins as of yet. So most probably they will go with only three overseas players once again.
