Live Score Update, IPL 2014, RCB vs KKR: Kolkata Knight Riders win the match by 30 runs

The duel between Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bangalore will be a cracker of a match. Kolkata arguably has the most diverse bowling line up which also makes them the strongest bowling side in IPL 2014 while the Bangalore batting is what cricket statisticians would want as their dream batting line up.

With such a good line up of opposing forces in the match, the contest can sway either way with the smallest of mistakes from either side. In a surprise this tournament, the Knight riders have come back from behind and are on the verge of qualifying for the next round.

Bangalore on the other hand are on the verge of being knocked out of the tournament having lost 7 out of their 12 games. They desperately need to win all their remaining games in order to stay alive and keep hopes for the playoffs.

KKR managed to win their last game against RCB in a very exciting and thrilling contest and would look to deliver that performance again, while the Royal Challengers would look to avenge that turnaround defeat in their penultimate game of the league stage.
