KKR vs RCB: How to pick the winning Dream11?

18 Apr 2019: KKR vs RCB: How to pick the winning Dream11?

Kolkata Knight Riders take on Royal Challengers Bangalore in match number 35 of the Indian Premier League 2019.

KKR have lost the momentum with them losing three matches on the trot, including two at home.

Meanwhile, RCB have endured the worst to their season in the history of IPL.

Fans, who are playing Dream11, will be looking to pick the right team. Here's more.

Batting: A look at the strong batting unit on offer

We have decided to go with the swashbuckling Chris Lynn and wicket-keeper batsman Parthiv Patel as the two openers of this Dream11 team.

Lynn needs to carry on with the momentum from the last match versus Chennai.

Virat Kohli (vice-captain) comes in next. He will be eyeing to score some crucial runs.

In-form AB de Villiers and Nitish provide the depth as well.

Fact: A three-man all-round department with Narine the leader

We have picked three all-rounders to add the balance. RCB's Marcus Stoinis and Moeen Ali will look to create issues for the hosts. Sunil Narine is crucial for KKR's chances. We have also selected him as the captain of this team.

Bowling: Here's a look at the bowlers

Navdeep Saini is the main pacer of this fantasy XI team. He has bowled well so far in IPL 2019.

Saini's pace and variations will be important for RCB.

Yuzvendra Chahal's spin could do the trick here.

He has been among the wickets and could target KKR's dodgy middle order.

Kuldeep Yadav gets the nod as well. The KKR spinner has work to do.

Predictions: Predicted Playing XI and possible winner

Predicted KKR playing XI: Lynn, Narine, Uthappa, Nitish, Gill, Russell, DK (captain and wicket-keeper), Kuldeep, Chawla, Prasidh and Kelly.

Predicted RCB playing XI: Kohli (captain), Parthiv (wicket-keeper), ABD, Moeen, Stoinis, Akshdeep, Negi, Steyn, Saini, Umesh and Chahal.

KKR will be eager to get back on track and pile the misery on RCB.

It will be a close battle.

We feel KKR will go through.
