IPL 2021 KKR vs RCB LIVE: Eoin Morgan vs Virat Kohli head to head


IPL 2021 KKR vs RCB LIVE: Eoin Morgan vs Virat Kohli head to head. Kolkata Knight Riders play against Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League 2021 clash on Monday evening at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi.

Struggling KKR will be ready to turn things around after this big break. They are currently 7th in the league table with just 2 wins in 7 matches. Captain Eoin Morgan will be hoping to make few changes to their squad to qualify for the qualifiers.

RCB on the other hand are top of their game. They currently sit at 2nd position with 4 wins in 7 matches and can jump to 2nd position with a win on Monday. Virat Kohli will be expecting the same form from his teammates for the second phase of IPL 2021.

IPL 2021 will be memorable for many reasons, one of them being the change in venue to a different country. Also, many foreign players will be missing the remaining fixtures due to the rise in Covid-19 and the change in venue.
