KKR vs RCB: Dream11 Prediction (Match 9 of IPL 2023)

After making a dream start in their first game, RCB is set to lock horns with KKR in Kolkata. RCB’s batting was too strong, especially the fiery opening duo of Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis. They both were brilliant in the last game and will try to carry the confidence to this KKR game. On the other hand, KKR couldn’t sparkle with the bat in their first game but possesses a strong batting lineup.

Pitch Report

Batting paradise as the flat track is accompanied by smaller boundaries. Also, spinners will have good assists from the wicket.

What to Expect?

Since the wicket is expected to have a turn, it is not expected to be a high-scoring game unless the top-order batters see off the new ball. Spinners will play a huge role on both sides. The team that bats spin effectively might have the upper hand.

Probable Playing XIs

RCB Possible XI:

Faf du Plessis(C), Virat Kohli, Dinesh Karthik(wk) Glenn Maxwell, Michael Bracewell, Shahbaz Ahmed, Karn Sharma, Harshal Patel, Akash Deep, Reece Topley, Mohammed Siraj

KKR Possible XI:

Fantasy Picks for the KKR vs RCB Match

Captain: V Kohli

King Kohli is completely in a different zone now. And this game against KKR will be even stronger. This opportunity against KKR will be used well by Kohli.

Vice Captain : N Rana

N Rana got the start in the last game but failed to convert it into big. We all know what he is capable of. Being a good spin hitter and left-hander, he could handle Karn Sharma more efficiently.

Batsmen : V Kohli, Faf du Plessis, N Rana

Faf Du Plessis has an obstacle in the name of Narine. If he is able to bat effortlessly against the spinner, Faf can once again go for good runs.

Wicketkeepers : D Karthik

D Karthik with his death over batting will be a must to include players in our team.

All rounders : S Narine, G Maxwell, A Russell

S Narine and A Russell have a job to do with a full bowling quota. S Narine might get to bat, and if he finds the sweet spot, it will be a prolific addition for our side.

Bowlers : K Sharma, S Thakur, R Topley, R Chakravarthi

K Sharma and V Chakravarthy are the most important additions to our side as they will get aided by the wicket.

S Thakur is a wicket-taker, whereas R Topley’s last game looked good enough not to leave him back.

Winning Dream11 Team

Key Players

Consider picking up Dinesh Karthik only if RCB bats first. He might have very less to bat on if RCB ended up chasing. KKR’s Gurbaz will be a better option in this case.

Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis are in red-hot form as they will be the players to look out for on this match day, with the Orange Cap hunt already on!
