Match Preview for KKR vs RCB Dream11 Contest:
Match 30 of the VIVO IPL 2021 will be played between Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on May 3rd at 07:30 PM IST.
KKR and RCB both were comprehensively beaten in their last game and will be keen to get back to winning ways. While RCB are still better-placed, KKR cannot afford to lose as it might end their challenge for a place in the playoffs this season.
KKR vs RCB Dream11 Prediction:
RCB comfortably had beaten KKR in the last encounter between these two teams few days ago. Also they are in better form and this would certainly give them an edge in this encounter.
A warm evening is expected with the temperature expected to be around 37 degrees. The humidity as expected in this part of the world will be as low as 23%. But there might also be a gentle breeze blowing at about 8 kmph.
The pitch here has been traditionally good for batting while the ball is hard and new. If there is no dew later in the game, the pitch would tend to slow down and assist the spinners more. Anything in excess of 180 might prove to be a match-winning score.
KKR Probable Playing XI:
Rahul Tripathi, Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, Eoin Morgan (c), Dinesh Karthik (wk), Sunil Narine, Andre Russell, Pat Cummins, Shivam Mavi, Prasidh Krishna, Varun Chakravarthy.
RCB Probable Playing XI:
Devdutt Padikkal, Virat Kohli (c), Rajat Patidar, AB de Villiers (wk), Glenn Maxwell, Daniel Sams, Shahbaz Ahmed, Harshal Patel, Kyle Jamieson, Mohammed Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal.
KKR vs RCB Dream11 Team for Head to Head and Small League:
AB de Villiers, Virat Kohli, Glenn Maxwell, Rahul Tripathi, Devdutt Padikkal, Andre Russell, Shahbaz Ahmed, Harshal Patel, Kyle Jamieson, Shivam Mavi, Varun Chakravarthy.
Captain: AB de Villiers
AB de Villiers had missed out in the last game, but had played a cracking inning of 75* on this very ground against DC and has already played three match-winning innings this season for RCB.
Vice-captain: Andre Russell
In an underperforming KKR side, Andre Russell has been the only player probably who has been consistently batting well. He also has been brilliant at the death with the ball more often than not.
KKR vs RCB Dream11 Team for Mega League:
AB de Villiers, Virat Kohli, Glenn Maxwell, Rahul Tripathi, Devdutt Padikkal, Andre Russell, Daniel Sams, Harshal Patel, Kyle Jamieson, Shivam Mavi, Varun Chakravarthy.
Captain: Virat Kohli
Virat Kohli isn’t having the greatest of IPL seasons with the bat. But he had got off to a start in the previous game and seems to be really close to getting a big score.
Vice-captain: Glenn Maxwell
Glenn Maxwell has been rather quiet in his last two innings, but he is a game-changer and has the ability to single-handedly win the game for his team.
