Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) go head to head in match 36 of IPL 2024 at Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Sunday, April 21. The match starts at 3.30 pm IST. This is the last and final afternoon game for the home side. 

KKR are heading into this game after a heartbreaking loss to RR in their previous game at home. Sunil Narine's maiden IPL ton took them to 223 in the first innings.

However, Jos Buttler remained calm under pressure and scored his seventh IPL to take the Rajasthan Royals to victory. In the process, they got to 12 points and took a step closer to IPL playoffs. 

RCB, on the other hand, has lost five consecutive games. Their previous loss was against SRH who scored 287 against RCB bettering their previous best of 277 against Mumbai Indians.

The battering received by the RCB bowlers has exposed the weakness in their bowling department once again. This particular loss has also highlighted the problems in terms of selection within the RCB dressing room. 

This is the reverse fixture between the Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bengaluru in Kolkata. KKR defeated RCB in the previous game chasing down 183 against RCB in Chinnaswamy. Very interestingly, RCB last won in Kolkata back in 2019.
