Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals will face each other in the 31st match of the IPL 2024. The match is set to take place at Eden Gardens in Kolkata on 16th April 2024.

KKR is having a good season so far after roping in Gautam Gambhir as the mentor last year. With 4 wins in 5 matches, they are sitting at 2nd position on the points table. KKR will look forward to avenging last year’s defeat by RR at this venue.

Top Batsman Picks - KKR vs RR Dream11

  • Riyan Parag - Riyan Parag is the leading run scorer for RR with 284 runs 6 innings with an impressive average of 71.00. He is having his best IPL season so far and we are expecting more runs from him in this match.
  • Phil Salt - Phil Salt has proved his mettle on this ground. In the last match he scored 89 runs. In 5 matches, Salt has scored 191 runs at a strike rate of 159.16. It looks like he has read the pitch quite well here and we can expect another good knock from his bat.
  • Sunil Narine - Sunil Narine is enjoying himself at the top-order and his form is a big factor behind KKR’s performance so far. In 5 matches, he has scored 167 runs at a strike rate of 183.51 and picked 5 wickets so far.

  • Andre Russell - Russell has taken 6 wickets in 5 matches so far at an average of 15.33. With the bat he has smashed 115 runs so far at an aggressive strike rate of 212.96. He has been a bit low on performance in the last 2 games but we expect him to go big in this match.
  • Mitchell Starc - Starc has finally picked up on his form. He is still being hit for a lot of runs but he has managed to pick 5 wickets in 5 matches and we expect more wickets from him on this ground.
  • Yuzvendra Chahal - Chahal is currently the leading wicket taker of the season with 11 wickets in 6 matches at an average of just 14.81. He has the ability to pick wickets on this ground with his variations.

  • Dream11 Vice Captain Options - Sanju Samson, Riyan Parag

Players To Avoid - KKR vs RR Dream11

  • Venkatesh Iyer - Venkatesh Iyer has not been in his best form this season. We have seen him hitting big sixes but he is not looking in the same confidence. He has scored 28 runs so far in 5 matches. In the last 3 matches, his fantasy points are - 4,7 and 10.
  • Dhruv Jurel - Jurel has scored 48 runs in 6 matches at a low average of 16.00. Dhruv does not look in confidence for a big performance so we are avoiding him in the fantasy teams for this clash.
