KOL vs BLR Dream11 Prediction: Two of the serious Playoffs aspirants, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kolkata Knight Riders, will meet in Abu Dhabi to fight for the crucial two points that will go a long way in meeting their endeavors. Virat Kohli’s RCB are currently number three in the points table and two points will keep them close to the current leaders Delhi Capitals and Mumbai Indians. Kolkata too will be desperate for those two points as winning the match will mean they distancing themselves from the bottom four teams who are so desperate to replace them in top four. The last time these two teams met there was no competition at all as RCB recorded one of the biggest wins in IPL 13 (82 runs) backed by AB de Villiers sensational 33-ball 73*. Both teams are coming in this match on the back of close wins as RCB uprooted Rajasthan Royals while KKR edged past Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Super Over.
KKR vs RCB Dream11 Prediction Match Details
Indian Premier League Season 13
Kolkata Knight Riders vs Royal Challengers Bangalore
Date – Wednesday, 21 October 2020
Time: 7:30 PM (IST); 6:00 PM (Local Time)
Venue – Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi
Pitch Report: The average first innings score at this venue has been in 170s and team batting first would be gunning to surpass that as both teams have some explosive batsmen in their line-ups. The pitches have been slowing up but the last two days have been good for the chasing teams in KKR vs RCB Today Match Prediction.
KKR Team News: Sunil Narine’s action has been cleared but he still missed the SRH game. KKR included Lockie Ferguson in the last match and he was the match-winner for them meaning he will play this game for sure. So, if Narine has to comeback he will have to come in place for two players who have failed to live up to their reputation – Andre Russell and Pat Cummins.
RCB Team News: Virat Kohli as a captain likes to keep rotating his players but we expect him to curb his natural instinct as the current RCB squad is winning games even though two of their foreign players Aaron Finch and Isuru Udana have been a bit off-color in the past few outings. Let’s take a look at KOL vs BLR Dream11 Prediction now.

KOL vs BLR Dream11 Tips
Eoin Morgan: The new captain of KKR has made 248 runs so far in this edition at an average of 41, which is the best batting average for a KKR batsman. Morgan has looked good in the middle and has thrice been not out. It is time that he gives himself more deliveries to face as for KKR to win Morgan has to make big contributions which he hasn’t made so far with no 50+ score so far.
AB de Villiers: The South African great has been at his best and is one of the best, if not the best, batsman in the tournament. He was sensational in their win against Rajasthan where he scored a fifty with a strike-rate of over 200. The last time these two teams met he smashed 73. Overall, he has 285 runs at an unbelievable strike-rate of 190.
Andre Russell: A lot was expected from the big West Indian but he has been an absolute flop with the bat so far scoring only 92 runs in 8 innings. We saw how disappointed he was with himself after he got out against SRH and that shows how desperate he is to come good. We expect him to fire with the bat in this match, with the ball he has been decent picking 6 wickets so far.
Virat Kohli: The captain of RCB was a bit slow to start but is now scoring the amount of runs we are used to see him scoring. He has 347 runs at an average of 57.8 which is the best for an RCB batter. His strike-rate (127) is good but he would want to improve on that and support de Villiers more in pursuit of scoring quick runs.
X-Factors & Differential Picks
Lockie Ferguson: He has legendary in the first match he played and single-handedly won KKR the match against SRH. First, he took 3 wickets in the 20 overs and when the match went into the Super Over he took another couple of wickets! His performance doesn’t come as a surprise as he was one of the leading wicket-takers in 2019 World Cup too.
Yuzvendra Chahal: The brainy leggie is in the running for the Purple Cap with 13 wickets from 9 matches. Chahal has been the most potent weapon for Virat and he is the trusted man to make crucial breakthroughs. Chahal was impressive in the previous encounter against KKR where he finished with figures of 1/12 in his four overs.
