Royal Challengers Bengaluru will be desperate for a win when they take on Kolkata Knight Riders in their next game of the ongoing Indian Premier League 2024 (IPL 2024).

With just one win from their first seven games, the Bengaluru-based outfit is currently languishing at the bottom of the points table. RCB started their campaign in IPL 2024 with a loss against reigning champions Chennai Super Kings. In their second game, they beat Punjab Kings by four wickets to get off the mark in the seventeenth edition of the IPL.

Since that defeat, the Faf du Plessis-led side has lost five games in a row. Their chances of qualifying for the playoffs are extremely low at the moment and they need a remarkable performance in the remainder of the league stage to finish in the top four.

And while only time will tell how things unfold for RCB in the coming days, they will definitely be hoping for a change in their fortunes when they take on Kolkata Knight Riders in their new jersey. Faf du Plessis and his teammates will be donning a blue and green jersey for their next game, scheduled to take place at the Eden Gardens on Sunday (April 21).

The franchise announced the development on Thursday (April 18). Posting a photo of few of their players in the new jersey, RCB wrote: "Hope change of colours brings change in fortunes! 💚 See you on 21st in Kolkata, 12th Man Army. 🫡"


RCB eye revenge:

RCB will be eyeing revenge on KKR when the two teams lock horns against each other later this week. The game will be the second meeting between the two teams this season. Earlier, they locked horns against each other at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.

KKR thrashed RCB by seven wickets in that game and that very defeat was also the start of RCB's five-game losing streak. Batting first, the three-time finalists scored 182/6 in 20 overs with Virat Kohli scoring an unbeaten 83. In reply, KKR chased down the total inside 17 overs by losing just three wickets.
