Rcb will step in the field against KKR as the favourites in this contest because of several factors. Kolkata have few injury problems and subsequently will miss the services of star pacer Pat Cummins. Moreover, KKR have not found the correct balance in their squad unlike Rcb. The Bangalore franchise have covered most of their weaknesses with the addition of Maxwell, Harshal Patel and Jamieson. Hence, Royal Challengers Bangalore are expected to win this matchup against Kolkata Knight Riders.

Fantasy Xl Team

Virat Kohli 10.5 Cr

Regardless of his current form, Virat Kohli is a must have player in any fantasy lineup. The RCB captain has consistently accumulated runs for his side and is the highest run getter in IPL history

Ab De Villiers 10 Cr

Ab De Villiers aka Mr.360 is one of the best batsmen in the world. The South African wicketkeeper-batsman is a force to reckon with and has the ability to change the course of a game on its head.

Glenn Maxwell 9.5 CrCaptain

Glenn Maxwell was the most valuable player of Rcb during the first half of the tournament until suspension. Batting at number three one can expect Maxi to continue his dominance today. As a result, I have selected Maxwell as the captain for today’s match.

Nitish Rana 9 Cr

Nitish Rana is a good pick considering his all round capabilities. Moreover, his aggressive batting at the top of the order makes him a good pick in the lineup.

Devdutt Paddikal 9 Cr

Devdutt Paddikal has been a revelation for RCB with his flamboyant batting style. The opener had scored 195 runs in 6 games in IPL 2021 and as a result, he is a great player to have in your fantasy 11.

Sunil Narine 9 Cr

Picking Sunil Narine against Rcb is mainly due to the fact that the Rcb star-studded batting lineup often collapses against spinners. In addition to that, Narine can be promoted up the order depending on the situation.

Harshal Patel 9 CrVice Captain

Currently Harshal Patel is the purple cap of IPL 2021 with 17 wickets. This season Patel has given Rcb crucial breakthroughs and his exceptional death bowling makes him an excellent pick in the fantasy XI.

Rahul Tripathi 8.5 Cr

Triphati’s explosive strike rate during powerplay makes him a good pick along with Nitish Rana as batsmen.

Yuzvendra Chahal 8.5 Cr

Chahal has always been Kohli’s go to option in need of wicket and he has always delivered to the expectations of his team. Moreover, Karthik and few other KKR players gave away their wickets against Chahal during their first faceoff.

Prasidh Krishna 8.5 Cr

Prasidh Krishna’s express pace and good death owling ability adds great value to the fantasy side. Moreover, UAE pitches could be a boon for him and he could flourish against Rcb today

Varun Chakravarthy 8.5 Cr

As mentioned above star batsmen like Virat Kohli and ABD have struggled against spin at times. As a result, Varun Chakravarthy is a great option because he often picks up crucial wickets.
