Expect the BAN vs RAJ clash to be a high-scoring one in Sharjah.

Match Details:

The 28th match of the Indian T20 League 2020 will be played between Bangalore and Kolkata at Sharjah Cricket Stadium in Dubai. We have got the best Bangalore vs Kolkata team prediction for today’s match.

Bangalore vs Kolkata Match 28 is scheduled to start at 07:30 PM IST (06:00 PM local time) (02:00 PM UTC). The game will be telecasted on the Star Sports Network (Available in English, Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Bengali). Also, live streaming will be available on Disney+ Hotstar.


After yet another successful week ends, Bangalore and Kolkata are going up against each other in the next fixture of the Indian T20 League. Both the teams were victorious in their previous matches and are placed next to each other in top four of the points table. Bangalore is having a dream start to the season with four wins in six games. Virat Kohli played the knock of the season so far which stood as the only difference between both the teams in their last encounter with Chennai.

With Chris Morris joining the team, Bangalore’s bowling got a huge boost and are a team to beat at the moment. They will be high in confidence after a convincing win against the men in yellow and will be looking to extend their winning streak in Sharjah. On the other side, Kolkata also has four wins in six games and are placed at third position in the points table.

They literally came out as the winner out of nowhere in their last two games in Abu Dhabi. Despite being out of the game for most of the time, Kolkata outplayed the opposition tactically in the very last moment, in both the occasions. Dinesh Karthik played a crucial knock at the end to get his team to a defendable target.

However, the likes of Eoin Morgan and Nitish Rana are yet to play any impactful knock in the middle order. They played one game in Sharjah and will be hoping to get the best out of that experience against Bangalore.
