This article gives Dream11, My11Circle Team Prediction RCB vs KKR; detailed analysis on Pitch Report, Playing XIs, Fantasy XI.
Time: 19.30 IST.
Venue: DY Patil Sports Academy, Navi Mumbai
Brief: After comprehensively beating CSK, KKR, boasting in confidence, will lock horns with RCB in their 2nd clash in this year’s IPL. RCB on the other hand would feel a bit low after losing despite scoring 200+ and would like to improve their performance in the field.
The DY Patil Stadium has been a happy hunting ground for the chasing teams. Dew plays a big factor in this venue and the team winning the toss gets a huge advantage. The pitch is a fresh one and is expected to be much better to bat especially in the second inning. If dew settles in the latter half of the match, batting would ease out even more in the second inning, and the team defending a score must have those extra 10-15 runs.

KKR vs RCB Probable Playing XIs:
KKR: The team combination is working absolutely fine for KKR as they have won their opening match in the tournament quite comprehensively. The batting department looks pretty settled with Rahane & both the Iyers doing the job up front and then followed by Nitish Rana and Dre Russ in the middle. Bowling also looks fine with the pair of Narine & Varun slowly getting into the groove. The pair of mystery spinners is their major strength in the bowling department. The extra pace of Umesh Yadav is also working well for the KKR.
Playing XI: Ajinkya Rahane, Venkatesh Iyer, Shreyas Iyer (C), Nitish Rana, Andre Russell, Sam Billings, Sheldon Jackson (wk), Sunil Narine, Shivam Mavi, Umesh Yadav, Varun Chakravarthy.
RCB: Rcb having reputations of being chokers in IPL must look to turn the fortunes to their favor this year with the change in captaincy. Captain Faf looks to be in great touch with an excellent 88 in the first match. Faf would be ably supported by Virat Kohli, their former captain. The batting looks to be in good shape but the bowling department needs improvement.
Playing XI: Faf du Plessis (C), Virat Kohli, Anuj Rawat, Dinesh Karthik (Wk), Sherfane Rutherford, Wanindu Hasaranga, Shahbaz Ahmed, Harshal Patel, David Willey, Md. Siraj, Akashdeep.
