KKR vs RCB Dream11 Prediction

Mohammed Siraj Stats in IPL

Mohammed Siraj has improved immensely in limited-overs cricket. The pacer had a brilliant start in the opening game of IPL 2023, giving away just 5 runs in 3 overs. However, his final over went for 16, which dented his superior figures. But the pacer has shown how he can prove lethal in powerplay overs and RCB would be hoping he carries on the momentum in the next match.

Virat Kohli Stats in IPL

King Kohli was back at Chinnaswamy Stadium and it was a vintage performance from him. His innings included some drool-worthy drives and effortless sixes as he along with Faf du Plessis punished the Mumbai Indians’ bowlers.
