Kolkata and Bangalore will face off in the sixth match of the 2022 Indian T20 League. While Kolkata beat Chennai in their previous match, Bangalore were beaten by Punjab. There are many mini battles in this mega battle that will be mouth-watering for the fans. In this article, let us take a look at three such battles.
3. Venkatesh Iyer vs Harshal Patel
Venkatesh Iyer is a batter who can just demoralize any bowling attack with his ability. Iyer is an attacking player andÂ loves to play his shots upfront. Harshal Patel was the highest wicket-taker in the 2021 edition of the Indian T20 League. He can swing the ball both ways and also has an excellent slower ball that can fox the very best in the business. The Iyer versus Patel battle will be one that the fans would surely not want to miss when Bangalore takes on the Kolkata side.
2. Faf du Plessis vs Varun Chakravarthy
Faf du Plessis is the catalyst of the Bangalore batting lineup. The Bangalore skipper scored a classy 88 at a strike rate of 154.39 and decimated the opposition bowling attack in his sideâ€™s previous rubber. However, du Plessis might not find it easy against Varun Chakravarthy. The off-spinner has a bucketful of variations and is a bowler who bowls tight lines, giving nothing away. This battle will be exciting to watch.
1. Virat Kohli vs Umesh Yadav
This battle between two Indian cricketers will be worth a watch. Umesh Yadav will come into this match pumped up after his Player of the Match performance in the last game. On the other hand, Virat Kohli is one of the greatest batters in the history of the Indian T20 League and scored 41 in Bangaloreâ€™s opening game.
