Mitchell Johnson, 36, will have to lead the bowling attack in Starc's absence, with support from Kuldeep Yadav, Piyush Chawla and Andre Russell, who is coming into the tournament on the back of serving a one-year ban for a doping violation. The West Indian targeted Royal Challenger Bangalore's Washinton Sundar in particular in the fifth over, where he hammered him for 18 runs in a single over.

But skipper Karthik (35 off 29 balls not out) maintained his composure and starred in a 55-run partnership with Nitish Rana to eventually seal the chase with seven balls to spare. Narine's 19-ball 50 (he raised the half-century off 17 balls) laid the impetus that KKR so almost lost in the middle overs into their chase of 177.

Earlier, Brendon McCullum gave RCB hopes of a big total. After clobbering the right-arm pacer for a six over long-on, Narine made room and struck two straight fours on the off side.

At least Virat Kohli is fit to start the competition: The skipper and his side never really recovered from his absence at the beginning of the 2017 campaign and he will need to come close to his IPL 9 form where he took the Orange Cap with 973 runs.

The data could provide fodder for existing or future lawsuits under the U.K.'s 2010 Equality Act, which codified earlier laws. Over this time frame, 8% of both female and male employees received bonus payments, which equates to 58 women and four men.

He lost his partner, Chris Lynn (five) in the same over but he remained unperturbed and went berserk in the fourth over of Chris Woakes who was hammered for 6-4-4-6. So there is a more chance for KKR to win the game today.

De Villiers, who is also popularly known as Mr 360 because of his ability to hit the ball anywhere on the ground, is also hopeful of winning the IPL trophy.

AB de Villiers (44) and Virat Kohli (31) - part of a formidable RCB top four also featuring Brendon McCullum and Quinton de Kock - were dismissed from successive balls by Kolkata spinner Nitish Rana (2-11) after sharing a quick-fire stand of 64 as the visitors posted 176-7. He went to the pavilion by scoring 43 runs from 26 balls. He was kept inside the inner-circle throughout the first innings before re-igniting Kolkata's damaging opening duo alongside Sunil Narine. He's a fantastic enabler for Kohli, and has been on fire in the KKR practice matches.

After McCullum's dismissal, AB de Villiers took the centerstage and played some breathtaking shots.
