Kolkata vs Bangalore: Inconsistent Performers of the Indian T20 League

Both Bangalore and Kolkata are home to some of the biggest household names in world cricket and in the Indian T20 League. While Virat Kohli is synonymous with Bangalore and attracts eyeballs and support wherever he goes, Shubman Gill is fast emerging as the face of the Kolkata team.

For Bangalore, the Kohli-de Villiers combination has been central to their fortunes for a decade, but without much success. With the team having started well this season, this is perhaps the best and last opportunity for AB de Villiers in particular to win some silverware. On the other hand, Kolkata's glory days are well behind them as they aim to rebuild after a disastrous first half of the 2021 season, winning just 2 out of 7 games.

Can Virat and company end their drought, or will the Purple and Gold reign supreme once again? We will know the answers soon.

Kolkata Team vs Bangalore Team: Head to Head Record

Matches: 28

* Kolkata won one match when they met in the Champions League T20 in 2011.
