KKR vs. RCB: IPL 2019, Match 35 Preview
KKR made a solid entry to the season but lost three matches in the last four games. They are now placed at the sixth position on the points table. RCB, on the other hand, have struggled from the beginning and won one match after six losses. RCB after winning from KXIP, slipped to a five-wicket loss against Mumbai Indians.
