RCB vs KKR Dream 11 Prediction: Dream 11 Fantasy Tips for RCB vs KKR as The SportsRush helps you form the best possible Dream 11 team.
RCB find themselves in a corner early on in the season, as their batting unit has failed on a regular basis in the first few games. Virat Kohli hasn’t quite gotten the team combination right too, as RCB have been falling short with ball at the death as well. With Southee and Coulter-Nile waiting in the ranks, it seems Kohli will do RCB a world of good by drafting one of them in.
KKR on the other hand seem to be sorted with respect to their team selection, except that bizarre selection of playing Nikhil Naik ahead of Carlos Braithwaite in the last game.
But with Sunil Narine set to return for Friday’s game, normalcy should return to the KKR setup. Narine would take his rightful place at the top of the order, with Nikhil Naik set for the bench.

Let’s get to business now.
RCB vs KKR Dream 11 Prediction
For the wicketkeeping slot it is going to be a direct shootout between Parthiv Patel and Dinesh Karthik. I will be going ahead with Parthiv Patel for this game, due to two reasons. Parthiv is in better form as compared to DK and also bats higher up the order. The RCB keeper would thus have a higher chance of showering my team with ‘fantasy points’. Get him in.
With the Bangalore wicket set to be a batting paradise this season, I am going to limit my bowlers to just 3, as the bowlers could take a good ‘tonking’ on Friday at the Chinnaswamy. I’ll also be saving some money on the bowlers that I’ll draft in for this game.
Yuzvendra Chahal would be the first bowler that I get in. Chahal is the purple cap holder presently, having taken 8 wickets in 4 games. With his leg spin trickery, he could pose a massive threat to the right-handed batsmen in the KKR middle order.
With just 16cr reserved for the remaining two bowling slots, I would be getting one fast bowler each from both teams. Prasidh Krishna has been bowling wonderfully well for KKR, without much luck. He has been deployed to bowl the death overs for KKR too and also bowled the super over in the game against DC. At 8cr, he is one of the best picks available. Get him in.
For the final bowling pick, I will be getting in Navdeep Saini, who too has bowled beautifully without much luck. Kohli has used him for at least one over at the death and hence you can bank on him getting at least one wicket on Friday. He is sure to help you with your budget constraints.
I will be brining in the two best all-rounders for this game in Sunil Narine and Andre Russell. Russell has already shown his worth in the first 4 games for KKR, having won 2 games on his own for KKR. Get him in at all costs.
Sunil Narine has been declared fit for the RCB game and should be back opening the batting alongside Chris Lynn. Narine will also come in handy with the ball, as his trickery could bamboozle the already low on confidence RCB middle order. With the kind of dual point providing potential that it possesses, one would be silly to leave him out.
Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers walk into my side despite the form that they and RCB are currently in. Both these stalwarts have had one good innings to themselves during this season, but are yet to set the stage on fire. They have been put under tough situations up, until now, either because of the pitch or the match conditions. If RCB bat first on Friday, on a batting paradise, the world could be in for a treat.
And even if RCB bat second, you wouldn’t want to risk either of them going berserk. Get the duo in.
Chris Lynn has faltered big time this season, and it has been upto Robin Uthappa and Nitish Rana to save the ship for KKR, and they have done so admirably until now. While Robin Uthappa has played the anchor’s role, Rana has perfected both roles this season, playing the anchor in the first game and taking on the role of the aggressor in the 2nd. Going by current form and the kind of form that the RCB bowling unit is in; get both of them in.
For my final pick for this game, I need to go in with a 8cr batting pick and there could be none better than Shubman Gill, While KKR haven’t been using him in the best possible way, for the time being he has been a good fit at number 6. He is your best batting bet at 8cr.
Captain: Andre Russell
Vice-Captain: Virat Kohli(if RCB bat second)/ABD(if RCB bat first)
Happy team picking.
