RCB would like to open their account against KKR in Navi Mumbai


Rewind to 2008, the buzz in the country was about a T20 league that was taking its first steps on the track to be one of the greatest sports leagues in the world. The inaugural match saw KKR squaring off against RCB, and everyone pinned hopes that the league kicks off to a memorable start. KKR opener Brendon McCullum walked in and what followed became a part of cricket’s golden history. The IPL has now reached its 15th edition and fans are geared up to watch the same two teams lock horns against each other in the 6th clash of the season. Both KKR and RCB have played a match each so far and while KKR outclassed the defending champions CSK, RCB lost against PBKS in a high-scoring thriller.

RCB vs KKR: DY Patil Stadium Pitch Report

The pitch traditionally favors the seamers because of its nice covering of grass. The ball will come nicely onto the bat and a par score on this track is about 170. Spinners might not find a lot of turn but they are likely to bowl flighted deliveries because of the long boundaries. As dew is a critical factor in this season, it is preferable to field first.

Weather Forecast

Clear skies with no chances of precipitation are expected. The mean temperature will be around 35‎°C while the humidity will be close to 30%.

RCB vs KKR: Head to Head

One of the most celebrated rivalries of the league, RCB vs KKR always turns out to be a cracker of a game. In 30 matches, the Knights have had the edge over RCB on 17 occasions, with the remaining 13 saw RCB go over the line. In IPL 2021, both the teams shared the spoils in the league. However, the two powerhouses locked horns in the Eliminator where KKR pipped Kohli‘s troops by 4 wickets in Sharjah.

RCB vs KKR Dream 11 Top Picks

Faf Du Plessis

His knock of 88 runs off 57 deliveries might not have come in a winning cause, but the RCB skipper has shown that he has carried his blistering form on from the last season. The swashbuckling opener was the Man of the Match in the finals of IPL 2021, where KKR fell short of winning its 3rd title. Faf will look forward to lead from the front and take his team home against KKR.

Andre Russell

Very few can hit the ball as hard and as far as KKR’s star all-rounder Andre Russell. Russell’s numbers against RCB are staggering. His strike rate crosses the 200 mark and he averages at 46.25. Fans can expect another Dre Russ show from the DY Patil Stadium.

Dinesh Karthik

The former KKR skipper played a scintillating cameo of 32*runs from 14 deliveries against PBKS. DK looked in sublime touch as he played some remarkable shots all around the park. The seasoned campaigner would like to consolidate his spot as the team’s finisher. And the stage can’t be better set for him as he faces his ex-teammates in the upcoming match.

Match Prediction: Who Will Win?

Shreyas Iyer’s KKR will be upbeat to continue their winning streak against RCB. RCB on the other hand, have played their last match in the DY Patil Stadium and hence they know the conditions apparently better. Both the teams have star-studded lineups and therefore it’s quite difficult to pick a favorite. But RCB might have an upper hand ahead of the clash as they will be desperate for their first win.
