KKR vs RCB Dream 11 team Prediction: Dream 11 IPL Fantasy Cricket Tips for KKR vs RCB as The SportsRush helps you form best Dream 11 team
KKR are desperate to get out of the slump that they suddenly fight themselves in, one that they wouldn’t have expected themselves to be in. 3 losses in the last 3 games has derailed that KKR unit and they would be hoping to get a win on the board in their 3rd consecutive home game.
RCB already find themselves in a hole; a lonely one at that. RR seem to be a stone’s throw away, but RCB still need to win another game in order to get at par with them.
Virat Kohli will be hoping that RCB can get a win under their belt after a good hiatus and maybe, just maybe make the final surge towards a playoff spot.

DK on the other hand will want his players to pull up their socks and dish out a clinical performance of home to get above that mid table rut.
Let’s get to business now.
KKR vs RCB Dream 11 team Prediction
Wicketkeeper for KKR vs RCB Dream 11
Parthiv Patel and DK will be vying for that wicketkeeper’s slot and while DK seems to be the better skilled batsman, I would go ahead with Parthiv Patel, largely because of where he bats.
DK slots in at number 5 for KKR, and sometimes could be pushed down the order in favour of Russell, hence you can’t really be sure as to how many fantasy points he can collect. Thus, I go in with Parthiv, who is sure to open the batting alongside Virat Kohli.
Bowlers for KKR vs RCB Dream 11
For the kind of pitch that the Eden Gardens has been dishing out this season, I don’t think investing heavily in bowlers would be very wise for this game. With dew too set to play its role, I am going to go in with make shift bowlers and invest heavily into my all-rounders and batsmen.
The first bowler that I would get in for this game is Harry Gurney, who has been DK’s go-to choice at the death, largely because of his extremely well-disguised and on-point slower one’s . He has all the variations up his sleeve and bowls at least two of his four overs at the death. Get him in.
Navdeep Saini has been selected to travel with the Indian squad for the World Cup as a net bowler and would be relishing the fact that he would go around with the Indian team when they try and win that World Cup. He has been drafted in because of his stupendous bowling efforts during the domestic season and also during this IPL. He has been holding the fort for RCB from a bowling perspective, rising to the occasion even when Umesh Yadav, Southee and Siraj have failed miserably. At just 8cr, he is a brilliant pick.
Pawan Negi has been able to extract any turn that the surface has to offer this season, something that he wasn’t able to do in the last few seasons for RCB and DD. Against a team that has just two left-handers in their top 6, Negi’s left arm spin can come in very handy, especially if there is even a little spin on offer.
All-Rounders for KKR vs RCB Dream 11(Andre Russell…)
Andre Russell will be the first all-rounder that I get in for this game. He has been brilliant for KKR this season, almost carrying them single handedly to 4 wins. Get him in at all costs. If he doesn’t play, get in Marcus Stoinis, if RCB bat first and Chris Lynn, if KKR bat first.
Sunil Narine will be the second all-rounder for this game. While he hasn’t been at his best this season, his role with the KKR team is enough to warrant him a place in my side. 4 overs during the important phases of the game and batting during the powerplay; you don’t want to miss out on his utility.
For the final all-rounder spot, I am going in with Moeen Ali, who has gone under the radar this season. He has 155.5 Dream 11 points to his name, hitting the ball out of the park with the bat and picking up crucial wickets during the middle phase. It’s his lower order hitting that you are picking him for and he has been excelling at that in the last few games.
Batsmen for KKR vs RCB Dream 11(Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers…)
Update: AB de Villiers is not playing. Get in Chris Lynn instead.
Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers have been go-to players whenever RCB feature and rarely have they disappointed me. On a flat deck, you wouldn’t want to miss out an AB-Virat special. Get them in.
Robin Uthappa and Nitish Rana have been shouldering responsibility for KKR in the middle order, especially when the top order fails. The duo have strung together some important partnerships, helping setup the platform for Russell to come and explode. With the RCB middle order being a little circumspect, there aren’t any better batsman than these two for this game(keeping Virat and de Villiers aside).
Captain: Virat Kohli(if RCB bat second)/AB de Villiers(if RCB bat first)
Vice-Captain: Virat Kohli(if RCB bat first)/AB de Villiers(if RCB bat second)
