In the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024, the Shreyas Iyer-led Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) are set to clash with Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) in the 10th game of the season. KKR, a two-time IPL champion, commenced their journey in the tournament with a thrilling victory over Sunrisers Hyderabad, aiming to extend their winning streak.

In contrast, RCB faced a setback in their IPL 2024 opener against Chennai Super Kings but managed to bounce back with a thrilling win against Punjab Kings earlier this week. Eager to capitalize on this momentum, the Bengaluru-based team is geared up to face KKR on their home ground.

As Shreyas Iyer stepped up for the toss, he amusingly revealed a moment of confusion, carrying two team sheets. It appeared that the KKR team management had prepared alternate playing elevens for different scenarios, leaving Iyer unsure about which team to submit.

“We are going to bowl first. Had a brief chat with the curator, she was like the ball will spin as well. (Morale) It is fantastic, everyone is in high spirits. We have to carry forward the same momentum. It is important to be in the present,” remarked Iyer, acknowledging the amusing situation.

The bowling – Anukul comes in. I am seriously confused. There are two teams given to me,” he added with a touch of humor.
