Team Bangalore will look to bounce to winning ways when they take on Team Kolkata in match 6 of the Indian T20 League 2022 at DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai on Wednesday, March 30. The match will start at 7:30 PM IST.
The Faf du Plessis-led Bangalore ended up on the losing side in their Indian T20 League 2022 opener, with Team Punjab successfully chasing 205. Despite some positive signs, the team’s lack of quality bowling eventually dragged them down.
Kolkata, on the other hand, opened the Indian T20 League 2022 proceedings with a convincing six-wicket win over defending champions, Team Chennai. In what was a rather low-scoring encounter, Kolkata chased down 131 runs within 18.3 overs.

Judging by how the two teams have faired, it’s safe to say Kolkata will start as the outright favourite on Wednesday. Although their previous record against Bangalore supports the judgement, one cannot overlook the fact this Bangalore side is a new-look team, boasting of some great power hitters. If their bowling attack can be in sync with the batters’ performances, they might as well come out victorious.
