RCB vs KKR IPL 2021: 3 Potential Game-Changer In Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Kolkata Knight Riders Dream11 Grand League, April 18


RCB vs KKR Dream11 Team Prediction: Kolkata Knight Riders came short by just 10 runs in the last match against Mumbai Indians, but that margin opened many fronts where the problems seem to be aplenty for the two-time IPL winners. The fact that KKR failed to chase a modest 152-run total, despite in a good position in the match, shows that some players are not meeting the demand of being named in the KKR playing 11.
Virat Kohli may have also sat down with one or two players after game-2 and talk through their performance. No team is perfect and that’s why it’s worth looking at players who, for one reason or another, seem out-of-form, but could make all the right impact in
the RCB vs KKR Dream11 Team Prediction.

Washington Sundar: The last few months showed the real ceiling of Washington Sundar, who produced game-changing performances for Team India. But the 21-year-old Tamil Nadu-born player seems slightly out of touch at the moment and could do with a good performance here.

Reasons To Consider Washington Sundar As a Risky Option:

  • Confidence: After getting dropped from India vs England white-ball team, his confidence seems to have taken a hit.
  • Form: Slightly out of form with both bat and ball.

Reasons To Pick Washington Sundar In RCB vs KKR Dream11 Grand Leagues

  • Two-way: Sundar offers assurances due to his two-way skills; can bat and bowl.
  • Trust-factor: Kohli trusts Sundar and could help Sundar get his form back.

Eoin Morgan: English captain is yet to make his mark in the IPL 2021. Such is the demand at this franchise that he seems slightly under pressure. But the 34-year-old is a premium player. Overlook home from RCB vs KKR IPL 2021 match at your own peril.

Reasons To Consider Eoin Morgan As a Risky Option:

  • Form: Has been far too inconsistent as a batsman for his talent.
  • Batting Order: Bats slightly deep and often end up getting few overs.

Andre Russell: Mr Incendiary is yet to become the monster he really is when it comes to batting. But so far, he is making up for his batting drought with his bowling.

Reasons To Consider Andre Russell As a Risky Option:

  • Batting Form: Slightly out of touch.
  • Unpredictability: He is unpredictable as a bowler.

Reasons To Pick Andre Russell In RCB vs KKR Dream11 Grand Leagues

  • All-Rounder: Took five wickets in the last match. He is never out of the game.
