Kolkata Knight Riders vs Royal Challengers Bangalore IPL T20 Match Prediction

  • Start Time 19:30 IST / 14:00 GMT
  • Stadium Name Sheikh Zayed Stadium - Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

KKR vs RCB Betting Tips

  • Scoring runs was Kolkata Knight Riders’ biggest challenge earlier in the 2021 IPL season. Nitesh Rana was their leading run scorer and we back him to be their highest run scorer in this match in Abu Dhabi. With the ball, Tim Southee has replaced Pat Cummins and we recommend Southee as KKR’s top wicket taker in this game.
  • Captain Virat Kohli made only 1 half-century in the first seven games of this years’ tournament. However, he will be looking to get himself into form ahead of the T20 World Cup and is our tip for RCB’s highest run scorer against KKR. Harshal Patel is the leading wicket taker in the tournament so far and is a strong choice for RCB’s top wicket taker in this clash.
  • We are predicting a straight battle between Nitesh Rana and Virat Kohli for the Player of The Match Award. Neither player was in tip top form earlier in the season but we are backing Kohli to take the award in this game.

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

Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bangalore meet in Match 31 of the 2021 Indian Premier League on Monday evening in Abu Dhabi. The Knight Riders resume in 7th place with four points on the board whereas Royal Challengers are 3rd with ten points. Read on as we preview this game. The match begins at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium at 19:30 local time.

Kolkata Knight Riders have benefited from minimal player turnover from their last game in April until now. As a result there should be a strong team spirit and they could be in line to surprise a few sides.

Royal Challengers Bangalore begin the resumption of the IPL only two points from the top of the table. They have recruited well over the last few months and will be very confident ahead of this match.

KKR vs RCB Match Toss Prediction

Both captains prefer to field first. Although KKR may be tempted to bat first to change their fortunes after a very poor start to the tournament.

KKR vs RCB Match Pitch Report

This pitch will definitely take spin although the pace bowlers may be able to get something out of the wicket in this first match in Abu Dhabi.

KKR Team News & Playing 11

KKR Team News

In spite of global superstars across the side, something did not quite work for KKR in the first half of this year’s IPL. Captain Eoin Morgan averaged 15.33 with the bat and none of the bowlers took double figures of wickets. They will be hoping for a big change in fortune following the arrival of Tim Southee.

KKR Key Players

  • Nitish Rana- the left-handed middle order batsman made his international debut in Sri Lanka in July this year. He must build on his half-century earlier in the tournament if KKR are to succeed.
  • Tim Southee- the vastly experienced New Zealand bowling all-rounder will be a very useful player with bat and ball for Eoin Morgan to call upon.
  • Prasidh Krishna- the pace bowler got his first taste of international cricket against England in March. He picked up 8 wickets earlier in the IPL season

KKR Team Form

Kolkata Knight Riders come into this game with only two wins from their opening seven matches. A change of surroundings could be just what they require

KKR Predicted Playing 11

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

KKR vs RCB Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket-keeper

    AB de Villiers (10) will be our wicket-keeper. He was crashing boundaries galore in the opening games of the 2021 IPL.

  • Batsmen

    Glenn Maxwell (9.5), Devdutt Padikkal (9), Nitesh Rana (9) and Rahul Tripathi (8.5) are our batsmen. Both Maxwell and Rana have already passed 200 runs in the competition with Padikkal only 5 runs away.

  • All-rounders

    Andre Russell (10.5) will be our all-rounder. The West Indian has hit 13 sixes in the tournament already.

  • Bowlers

    Harshal Patel (9), Yuzvendra Chahal (8.5), Kyle Jamieson (8.5), Prasidh Krishna (8.5) and Mohammed Siraj (8.5) will be our bowlers. Chahal should enjoy the spin-friendly conditions in Abu Dhabi.

  • Captain/Vice-captain

    AB de Villiers will be captain, Glenn Maxwell his deputy

KKR vs RCB Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Glenn Maxwell(vc), Devdutt Padikkal, Nitesh Rana, Rahul Tripathi

  • All Rounder:Andre Russell

  • Wicket Keeper:AB de Villiers(c)

  • Bowler:Harshal Patel, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kyle Jamieson, Prasidh Krishna, Mohammed Siraj

RCB Team News & Playing 11

RCB Team News

Five RCB players have not returned from the earlier stage of the IPL for this period in Abu Dhabi which has given the franchise to freshen up an already strong squad. The experienced batting pair of AB de Villiers and Glenn Maxwell both got off to an incredible start in the tournament.

RCB Key Players

  • Virat Kohli- the captain was never at his best during the Test tour of England but will relish batting in Abu Dhabi in this match.
  • AB de Villiers- the South African keeper-batsman smashed 10 sixes earlier in the tournament. He currently averages 51.75 in the 2021 competition.
  • Harshal Patel- RCB’s standout bowler back in April and May, he took wickets in six successive games including 5-27 in the opening fixture.

RCB Team Form

After losing two of their last three games, you could make an argument for RCB being out of form. However, they will be refreshed and ready to perform at a high level once again.

RCB Predicted Playing 11

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

Our tips for Kolkata Knight Riders’ top bowlers are Tim Southee, Prasidh Krishna and Andre Russell. Southee is an excellent addition full of experience for KKR.

We recommend Harshal Patel, Yuzvendra Chahal and Mohammed Siraj as the top bowlers for Royal Challengers Bangalore. Patel will be looking to pick up where he left off earlier in the tournament.

🏆 KKR vs RCB Prediction

KKR have a very tough start back to the IPL with this fixture against RCB in Abu Dhabi. Bangalore stumbled a little at the end of the initial IPL phase but are a star-studded side and will be relishing the return to action. We are predicting another defeat in the 2021 IPL for Eoin Morgan’s KKR.
