Virat Kohli's men need to win their final three games in order to remain in contention for a play-off spot in IPL 2016Getty

Kolkata Knight Riders host Royal Challengers Bangalore in match 48 of what is a must win game for the visitors in the 2016 edition of the Indian Premier League. The hosts are in the second position in the table with 14 points and a win here will almost guarantee them a spot in the playoffs.

Their big hitters, in particular Yusuf Pathan and Andre Russell, are looking in ominous form. The bowling as usual has been steady and efficient, although Sunil Narine has disappointed so far. He is not looking lethal with his remodelled action, losing that zip that made him such a dangerous bowler in the shorter formats of the game.

A pattern seen in the IPL over time is that RCB perform disastrously in their opening games and then make a final dash in the latter stages to secure a place in the play-off stage. It is similar this time with Virat Kohli and co needing to win all their three games to remain in contention for a play-off spot.

A lot has been talked and written about their batting, but the bowlers were the ones who finally came to the party in the last game against Gujarat.
