Kolkata Knight Riders vs Royal Challengers LIVE Streaming Online: The Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bangalore opened their VIVO IPL 2018 campaign in Match three. KKR won the toss and opted to field first. Although De Kock departed early, Brendon McCullum, Ab de Villiers and Virat Kohli blasted KKR’s bowling until Piyush Chawla and Nitish Rana took the job to silence their blitzkrieg. KKR, who is led by the ever-bustling Dinesh Karthik this season, have several players from the squad that made the journey to the Playoffs last season. The team retained Andre Russell and Sunil Narine, and then signed back several players at the Player Auction. The team suffered a blow in the days leading to the start of this season when Mitchell Starc, who was expected to be the team’s bowling spearhead, was ruled out because of a stress fracture. However, they have been able to procure the services of England’s Tom Curran as a replacement.
There were question marks over the participation of Chris Lynn, who injured his shoulder while playing for Australia in February; but the 27-year old has been seen striking the ball in the nets and stands a good chance of featuring in the playing XI. KKR have the smallest squad of all the teams; they have only 19 players on their roster, and hence it is important that the first-choice players hit the turf running from match one.
