RCB aim to continue winning

On a high after extracting revenge against Sunrisers Hyderabad, Royal Challengers Bangalore will look to continue their winning streak when they take on Kolkata Knight Riders in their IPL match on Thursday.

Led by the energetic Virat Kohli, RCB trounced Hyderabad by seven wickets on Tuesday and the RCB skipper will be hoping that his men will not go haywire after making a good start, which was their story until the last IPL.

RCB were impressive against Hyderabad and Kohli and RP Singh starred with bat and bowl respectively. RCB were bolstered by RP Singh's 3/27, after Kohli notched up a blazing unbeaten 93 off 47 balls. RCB will  be hoping to get a rollicking start from Gayle, who failed to make an impact in the last two games. AB de Villiers will hope to fire after scoring 15 vital runs in a 49-run partnership with his skipper against Hyderabad. In the absence of RCB's bowling spearhead Zaheer Khan, Vinay Kumar has led the pack admirably. Muttiah Muralitharan and Murali Karthik would like to carry their magic of prudence and frugality into the next game. KKR, in contrast, have failed to capitalise on their good start having lost their last match to Rajasthan by 19 runs chasing a rather easy target of 145. In their encounter with the RCB, KKR will look for a better batting performance and build partnerships to bounce back.
