KKR vs RCB Dream11 Tips
- Dinesh Karthik would be the perfect choice for the wicket-keeper’s spot. Although he hasn’t been enjoying the best of his form lately, he would be strongly backed by his team and management to render a match-winning show in the coming game.
- Virat Kohli and Chris Lynn are must inclusions for their consistent exhibitions in the ongoing season of IPL. Nitish Rana laid impressionable exhibitions in the first few contests and could be expected to put up a scintillating show in the forthcoming feud.
- Sunil Narine and Andre Russell have been the top-performers for KKR, both with the bat and with the ball, and are thus vital additions for the Dream11 team. Moeen Ali would be a crucial pick too, as he scored a 32-ball 50 and scalped a figure of 2/18 in the previous match against Mumbai Indians.
- Piyush Chawla and Yuzvendra Chahal have been pretty phenomenal with their spin prowess and are likely to extract few more dismissals in the game at Eden. Dale Steyn’s return could turn out to be a positive for RCB in case he manages to strike dismissals at regular intervals.
