Top 5 picks for Your Fantasy Team for KKR vs RR IPL 2021 Match

Nitish Rana

Nitish Rana’s form has been one of the few good things for KKR so far this season. The young Indian batsman has already scored 164 runs in 4 innings and is looking in excellent form so far.

Jos Buttler

For RR, Jos Buttler has been a crucial player as he has produced 84 runs in 4 matches. However, against KKR, fans have even higher expectations from the English international.

Andre Russell

Andre Russell finally looked like himself against Chennai when he scored a monstrous 54 runs. However, Russell’s contributions weren’t enough for his team to cruise towards victory. So far he has tallied 99 runs and picked up 7 wickets as well.

Pat Cummins

Despite Pat Cummins’ fierce batting performance against CSK where he scored 66* runs, the Australian is a bowler primarily. Although he has 4 wickets in IPL 2021, he needs to bring his economy rate under 9. He is still one of the best players for KKR this season and you should definitely invest in combos that feature him on apps like Khiladi Adda.

Chris Morris

The most expensive player in this year’s IPL, Chris Morris has emerged as the best all-rounder for the team. Morris has 48 runs & 5 wickets to his name and will play a pivotal role in RR’s matchup against Eoin Morgan’s KKR.

KKR vs RR Match Prediction

As of now KKR has won 12 out of the 23 matches that the two sides have played against each other. Considering everything, KKR might have a slight edge over RR for this game, thanks to their tremendous batting prowess.
