The IPL match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bangalore has been rescheduled after 2 members in the Kolkata camp tested positive for COVID-19, the IPL announced in a tweet. The match was to be played at Ahmedabad's Narendra Modi Stadium on Monday.
From leading the table with four wins on the trot, the Virat Kohli-led RCB has slipped to third spot at the halfway stage after suffering two defeats from their last three matches.
In fact, RCB would have lost three in a row if pacer Mohammed Siraj had not defended 14 runs in the final over against Delhi Capitals' explosive duo of Rishabh Pant and Shimron Hetmyer.
Having started the season with much promise under Eoin Morgan, KKR so far have failed to inspire, suffering five defeats in seven matches. They are at the sixth spot in the eight-team table, staring at early elimination for a third season in a row.
The biggest letdown for KKR this season has been their top-order batting as the top three Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, Rahul Tripathi have failed to give the team a decent start.
