In the tenth match of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2024), the Kolkata Knight Riders comfortably defeated the Royal Challengers Bengaluru by seven wickets with 19 deliveries remaining in the game. 

It was a team effort from the visitors that helped them secure the win. While most of their players regained their touch, one primary concern for the team management will be Mitchell Starc's lack of form. 

The Australian speedster has been entirely off rhythm and has turned out to be the team's most expensive bowler in both games.
