With the day 1 of the 11th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is done and dusted, Indian cricket fans must be looking forward to watching the crucial first game of Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) which is scheduled to be played at the Eden Garden, Kolkata. RCB skipper must be looking forward to starting their campaign of IPL 2018 with winning note as this year they have the most balanced squad in the history of RCB. Let us look at the 5 players to watch for in the match.
1. Washington Sundar (RCB)
Rise to the international level of Washington Sundar has been nothing but spectacular. With Ashwin on national duties, Sundar led the spin attack for his state and gave a good account of himself. The performance propelled him to the next level almost immediately and the reason once again was R.Ashwin. The veteran off-spinner missed out on the whole IPL season for Rising Pune Supergiants in 2017. This season he will be playing alongside Yuzvendra Chahal who is known for thinking the batsman out. The duo of Chahal and Sundar is sure to make the batsmen dance if they find a pitch to their liking. This perhaps will be the hope that will take RCB to the championship.
