KOLKATA KNIGHT RIDERS' explosive batsman Yusuf Pathan said his side will have an upper hand over the Royal Challengers Bangalore when the two sides lock horns at the Eden Gardens later in the evening.
As reported by PTI, the 33-year-old said that knowing the wicket condition his side has a home advantage and hence would start as favourites.
“It will be a different wicket, different conditions and an away match (for RCB). They have to settle down here. We have the home advantage as we know the conditions well here.”
The mercurial batsman lauded RCB’s fiery pair of Kohli and ABD, however, he believes it won’t be easy for the duo to settle down on the Eden track.
"You have to praise both of them. They got a hundred each. Virat has three hundreds now. But at the Eden it is a different wicket and an away match for them."
