Aaron Finch has set the tone for the remainder of the night in Sharjah with a huge six in just the second over of the ongoing clash between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kolkata Knight Riders.
RCB skipper Virat Kohli won the toss and decided to bat first. The Bangalore-based outfit would be looking to continue their fine start to the season. Having not made it to the playoffs since 2016, they are in a good position at present in the ongoing competition.
With four wins from their opening six games, RCB have put themselves in contention for a playoff spot. Similarly, KKR have also started the tournament on a good note, having won four of their first six games. The two-time IPL winners are eyeing their third title and first since 2014.
