In response, RCB got off to a shaky start with Umesh Yadav and Tim Southee picking three wickets inside the powerplay overs.

RCB vs KKR: Pitch report by Morne Morkel
“The wicket looks a lot drier than the first game, not as much live grass on the surface. I still feel it's going to be a good wicket. The boundary size isn't that big, straight is pretty small. If Kolkata can get a good base upfront and Andre Russell can come in, he is definitely going to clear and hit some big sixes here. I'll definitely bowl first. It does get wet here, quite tricky to control.”

We played the previous game in the same venue. When we bowled in the second innings, there was dew. Sometimes it's really hard to bowl, but that's the challenge in cricket.”

RCB vs KKR: Knight Riders player Sam Billings speaks ahead of the match
“Great win against a very good team in CSK. It was more about adapting to conditions, it wasn't a regular Wankhede pitch. That's going to be the challenge throughout the tournament in the four different venues, who'll be the best team to adapt game-on-game. We'll have to do the same again at a new venue that I haven't been before. The real good thing (in the previous game) was we started each phase of the game brilliantly. With the ball, Umesh Yadav has been outstanding every time he gets an opportunity in the IPL. I see him being a real weapon for us and hopefully he can make some inroads into that powerful batting line-up today. He (Ramesh Kumar) is a great story, you'll see a lot more about him in the future. That is the amazing thing about IPL, finds talent in every corner of this amazing country. He's improved hugely. His hero is Sunil Narine and he has followed him around like a shadow. It's great to see him develop and other youngsters develop due to this tournament.”
