Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will host a star-studded Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata in Match 3 of the 2018 edition of the IPL. "This is probably the most balanced RCB side ever".

Commentators noted during the RCB innings that Robin Uthappa was doing most of the changes in the field, even chided Karthik when AB de Villiers deposited the first ball of the 15th over, bowled by Nitish Rana, into the stands, an innings containing shots that Matthew Hayden described as "champagne batting".

In just 27 balls, the pair brought up the 50-run partnership before Rana got the back of the duo in successive balls.

Lynn has been in fantastic form in the KKR practice matches, and he should feast on a weak RCB pace attack. New Zealand all-rounders Corey Anderson, Colin de Grandhomme and bowler Tim Southee join former worldwide superstar Brendon McCullum on the roster.

Unleashing raw power up front, Narine had his intention clear starting off with a flat-batted boundary and a slog sweep six against Chahal in the first two balls. KKR chased down the target of 177 in 18.5 overs to open their winning account in the IPL 2018 points table. He accounted for de Villiers and Kohli's wickets on consecutive balls. Narine's assault began against Chris Woakes in the fourth over.

People in Iran expressed pity and shock that Aghdam would shoot others in a country that allows more social media freedoms. "Right now", father Ismail Aghdam told Gutman, "I [was] thinking she never hurt one ant, how [did] she shoot people? ".

Earlier, put to bat, RCB lost Quinton de Kock early.

With the impact of the ball outside the off-stump, the LBW call was also out of the question and thus, De Villiers continued his innings adding another 21 runs before he was dismissed by Nitish Rana for 44.

Kohli (31 off 33) played the second fiddle.

The Next Stop: A short turnaround for Kolkata who take on Shane Watson's Chennai Super Kings on Tuesday with Virat Kohli's side to meet Kings XI Punjab fresh off a victory and packed full of Australians, with Aaron Finch likely to slot straight into the final side after missing the first game due to his wedding.

I'd normally avoid two top batsman tips but with RCB there is always value if Virat Kohli doesn't give the return. In the last ball of the over, Sundar nearly had his man but Mandeep Singh went across the rope at deep-wicket after latching on to another big hit from Narine.
