IPL 2024 RCB vs KKR: Who has the upper hand?

Till now 9 games have successfully taken place in IPL 2024, and the unprecedented case has prevailed. In all the 9 games, it is the home team which has come with the goods. Now, will the string of similar eventualities continue or will KKR become the first visiting team to register a win in IPL 2024? All to look forward to. When it comes to which team carries more strength on paper, then it is one of the cases when both the squads have equal firepower. From RCB, the major onus would be on Virat Kohli, Glenn Maxwell, Faf du Plessis, and the likes of Anuj Rawat. From KKR, the attention will once again be on Andre Russell, Rinku Singh, and Phil Salt. Plus, it would be interesting to note how the record signing, Mitchell Starc will come back from the hammering he received from SRH.
