Eden Gardens is all set to host the KKR vs RCB IPL 2024 match on Sunday, April 21. This is KKR's third home game on the trot. Also, this is the reverse fixture between the two sides. 

KKR lost their previous match against Rajasthan Royals at Eden Gardens. Sunil Narine's maiden IPL ton was overpowered by Jos Buttler's brilliant ton as KKR had to endure a heartbreaking defeat. A score of 223 was not enough on the day for the Knight Riders. 

RCB, on the other hand, have bigger problems. They are heading into this game after their previous loss to SRH where they conceded 287 runs bowling first.

That remains the most runs scored in the first innings of an IPL game. A total of 549 runs were scored in that game which is a T20 record.

RCB's bowling continues to be their problem. The batters have stepped up in almost every game. Either the score was not defended or they were asked to chase way more than what ideally they would have liked. The bowling concerns have led to selection conundrums within the team with no bowler of any serious reputation. 

KKR would love to come back to winning ways after the narrow defeat against RR. They are still placed second on the points table and would like to maintain that position. RCB, on the other hand, are placed last.
