Betting Tips

  • Nitesh Rana has been the leading batsman for KKR in the tournament, he has scored two half-centuries and has 201 runs to his name. Only Rahul Tripathi, Andre Russell and Pat Cummins have also made a score over 50. With the ball, Pat Cummins has taken a while to warm up but after taking 3-24 against Delhi Capitals has 9 wickets to his name.
  • The bulk of RCB’s runs have come from Glenn Maxwell, AB de Villiers, Virat Kohli and Devdutt Padikkal. No other RCB player has scored more than 71 runs across the tournament. Harshal Patel has taken 17 wickets, the most of any player in the 2021 IPL.
  • KKR have two of the top five players for hitting runs in one over. Pat Cummins hit 30 against CSK with Andre Russell hitting 22 in the same game. RCB’s Harshal Patel was on the receiving end of an over taken for 37 against CSK, equalling the highest in IPL history.

KKR vs RCB T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2021

Royal Challengers Bangalore take on mid table Kolkata Knight Riders as they look to respond to their 34-run defeat to Punjab Kings. Kolkata Knight Riders went down by 7 wickets to Delhi Capitals in their last match and will be looking to add to their two wins so far in this year’s tournament. Read on as we preview this clash of the 2021 IPL. The match will be played at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad and will get underway at 19:30 local time.

KKR should take a huge amount from Pat Cummins finding form against Delhi Capitals. If he can dismiss batsmen of a similar quality to Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw and Rishabh Pant in this game then KKR will have a chance. Furthermore, Shubman Gill hit 43, his highest score of the campaign.

RCB won the fixture earlier in the tournament, cruising to a 38-run win in Chennai courtesy of 78 from Glenn Maxwell and 3 wickets for Kyle Jamieson. They bounced back with a win after their first defeat of the IPL and Virat Kohli’s sides very rarely lose successive games.

RR vs SRH Match Toss Prediction

Every captain has chosen to field first after winning the toss in Ahmedabad. We expect Eoin Morgan and Virat Kolhi to do the same in this fixture.

RR vs SRH Match Pitch Report

Ever since the Test Matches earlier this year, the pitch in Ahmedabad has had the spin bowlers licking their lips. However, it also has good carry which encourages the pace bowlers and the batsmen.

Kolkata Knight Riders Team News & Playing 11

KKR Team News

KKR lost the game against Delhi Capitals after the first over of Delhi’s reply, delivered by Shivam Mavi, went for 25. However, he shouldn’t be cast aside as his two previous appearances returned figures of 1-19 and 1-13. 

KKR Key Players

  • Nitish Rana - in a team not blessed with many runs in 2021, Rana’s 201 are particularly crucial. However, he hasn’t gone beyond 25 in any of his last five innings.
  • Shubman Gill - the great new hope of India’s top order batting has struggled so far in the tournament but his score of 43 in the last game is his highest. He hit 3 half-centuries in both the 2019 and 2020 IPLs. 
  • Pat Cummins - Australia’s premier bowler had a slow start to the 2020 IPL and is following a similar pattern this year. His 3 top order wickets against Delhi shows that he is approaching top form.

KKR Team Form

Only 2 wins from 5 games is not the kind of form to scare the opposition. When you consider that the victories have come against Punjab Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad then you can see why they are struggling.

Kolkata Knight Riders Predicted Playing 11

Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, Rahul Tripathi, Sunil Narine, Eoin Morgan (c) , Andre Russell, Dinesh Kathik (wk), Pat Cummins, Shivam Mavi, Prasidh Krishna, Varun Chakravarthy

Royal Challengers Bangalore Team News & Playing 11

KKR Team News

After a lightning start to the IPL 2021, Virat Kohli’s side have lost two and won a tight game over their last three fixtures. The conditions in Ahmedabad may mean that they look to shake up the look of their side although you could pick eight or nine players to drop after the last performance. 

KKR Key Players

  • Virat Kohli - the captain will be frustrated by his contributions of only one score over 50 so far in the tournament. However, he has still contributed 198 runs and a big score will not be far away.
  • Glenn Maxwell - the Australian all-rounder had a remarkable start to the campaign with scores of 39, 59 & 78. His downturn has coincided with the RCB poor run.
  • Harshal Patel - although he had his worst game with the ball, going wicketless for the first time this year, Patel made up for it with a 13-ball 31 with the bat. He has a 4 wicket lead over his Purple Cap rivals.

KKR Team Form

CSK certainly burst RCB’s bubble when they beat them by 69 runs. They haven’t been the same team since and the 100% record now seems a long time ago.

Royal Challengers Bangalore Predicted Playing 11

Devdutt Padikkal, Virat Kohli (c) , Rajat Patidar, Glenn Maxwell, AB de Villiers (wk), Shahbaz Ahmed, Washington Sundar, Kyle Jamieson, Harshal Patel, Mohammed Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal

Kolkata Knight Riders vs Royal Challengers Bangalore Prediction

There have been signs that some of KKR’s leading lights are ready to shine in the tournament but they will be coming up against an RCB intent on showing they can get back to top form. We are backing Morgan's team to get back to winnings ways by beating RCB.

Final Verdict

Kolkata Knight RIders are favorites to win against Royal Challengers Bangalore at odds of 1.90

KKR vs RCB Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket-keeper

    AB de Villiers (10) will be out wicket-keeper. After a blip in the last game he will be keen to show what he can do with the bat in this match.

  • Batsmen

    Virat Kohli (10.5), Glenn Maxwell (9.5), Rajat Patidar (8) and Devdutt Padikkal (9) are our batsmen. Kohli is due a big score and Maxwell is sure to come to life again.

  • All-rounders

    Andre Russell (10.5) and Washington Sundar (8) have been picked as our all-rounders. Russell is always a threat and can never be discounted.

  • Bowlers

    Pat Cummins (9), Harshal Patel (9), Shivam Mavi (8) and Varun Chakravarthy (8.5) make up our bowling attack. Patel showed that even if he doesn’t take wickets he can still deliver with the bat.

  • Captain/Vice-captain

    AB de Villiers will be captain, his deputy will be Virat Kohli

KKR vs RCB Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Virat Kohli(C), Glenn Maxwell, Rajat Patidar, Devdutt Padikkal

  • All Rounder:Andre Russell, Washington Sundar

  • Wicket Keeper:AB de Villiers(C)

RCB Eye Top Positions; KKR looking to go for Reversals in Points Table

The Royal Challengers Bangalore have lost two of their last three matches and would like to carry on the momentum they built early in the tournament. The Kolkata Knight Riders, on the other hand, have had a bad campaign winning only 2 of their matches. The RCB batting let them down in the losses against CSK and Punjab Kings with their main batsman failing to score. KKR needs to be more aggressive in the powerplay and Shubman Gill who is having a disappointing tournament so far has to take more responsibility at the top of the order and Eoin Morgan has to play an anchor in the middle order.
