Bangalore and Kolkata will meet in the sixth match of the Indian T20 League 2022. In the sixth match of the Indian T20 League season, Bangalore will face Kolkata for the first time. In the last 30 league meetings between these two clubs, Bangalore has won 13 games and Kolkata has won the remaining games.
Kolkata got off to the best possible start by sweeping through Chennai in the first match. The bowlers set the tone for victory by limiting the opposition to 131 runs, and the batsmen did not panic as they strolled through the chase.
Bangalore lost a dramatic encounter against Punjab, failing to defend a 205-run target. The bowlers must pull up their socks since they will face Kolkata at the same location in a tough match.
Pitch Report & Conditions
Because of the vast borders, this venue hasn't always been a high-scoring one. The spinners will struggle if there is a lot of grass on the ground. It also appears to be tough, so it should be an excellent surface to bat on with decent carry. Around 165 would be the par score. The trend has been to chase here, with more than 200 being chased in the last encounter.
