  • IPL 2018: KKR to take on RCB in Kolkata Sunday

RCB's star-studded batting line-up just like every year which includes Brendon McCullum, AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli will be a treat to watch for all fans out there. New Zealand seamer Tim Southee and England's Chris Woakes and Moeen Ali were acquired in the auction to support the talented Indian quartet of Yuzvendra Chahal, Umesh Yadav, Washington Sundar and Pawan Negi.

Under the leadership of Virat Kohli, the Royal Challengers will begin their IPL campaign against Dinesh Karthik's Kolkata Knight Riders at the Eden Gardens on April 8. We need to take wickets throughout the innings, that's going to be key this season. "We had initially but everyone firing together is also a massive factor", Kohli had been quoted as saying earlier about his team. Kolkata will miss its Australia pacer Mitchell Starc who has given rest due to injury in right shin.

A close look at the Royal Challengers squad and one can decipher that they have gone ahead with the same philosophy as the previous years.

Sarfraz Khan, who was retained by the franchise, managed just six runs with Johnson (1/30) taking his wicket while Mandeep and Woakes (5) fell to Vinay in the last over.

Bowling with a remodelled action after his latest call of suspect action in the Pakistan Super League last month, Sunil Narine returned with 1/30 while fellow mate Andre Russell conceded 10 runs from two overs. The team has great hopes from Lynn to deliver some good runs. But, Kolkata are a new-look side with Dinesh Karthik as their captain and some young blood in the team.

Church in South Africa looks to Zuma prosecution with hope
Even though Jacob Zuma has resigned as president of South Africa and been charged with corruption, he still has loyal supporters. Taxpayers have spent millions footing the bill for some of South Africa's top legal minds working on Zuma's defense.

In the pace department, Johnson will be assisted by R Vinay Kumar, U-19 World Cup victor Kamlesh Nagarkoti, and all-rounder Andre Russell.

But McCullum's knock was put to an end by Sunil Narine, who is considered to be a trump card for the Knights. It would also be interesting to see how KKR will use their young, Under-19 stars Shivam Mavi and Kamlesh Nagarkoti and "Man of the Tournament" Shubman Gill. There are some experienced global players in the team who will help KKR. Karthik stayed unbeaten on 35 to take KKR home with seven balls to spare, aided by a cameo from Nitish Rana (34*).

RCB have significantly strengthened their bowling attack to add to their world-class batting talent, making them serious contenders for the title.

KKR lead the head to head count by an impressive 12-9 record across 10 seasons.
