Last time when these teams encountered against each other, it was a cracker of a game at Chinnaswamy. Dre Russ pulled out KKR from the jaws of defeat and RCB bowlers were stunned by some inhuman hitting from Russell. Hoping for the same thriller at Eden Garden. Let’s Discuss Dream11 and Fantasy Cricket Tips.

Date: 19th April, 2019
Time: 08:00 pm IST

RCB vs KKR Fantasy Cricket Tips:
Kolkata Knight Riders:KKR has suddenly lost the momentum, they have lost now 3 matches in a row which is not usual for KKR as they have been consistently performing team. Spinners have not been able to take wickets in the middle over which is a big problem for them as they heavily rely on the spin Trio. Sunil Narine showed some form in the previous match against CSK but he was not supported by others which is the reason for the defeat for KKR. M Kelly has good pace and death specialist, so considering the Eden Pitch, he might get a go against Harry Gurney who heavily rely on slower balls.
Probable XI: Dinesh Karthik (c &wk), Piyush Chawla, Robin Uthappa, Sunil Narine, Harry Gurney/ M Kelly, Andre Russell, Chris Lynn, Kuldeep Yadav, Nitish Rana, Prasidh Krishna, Shubman Gill
Royal Challengers Banglore:In the last two games, RCB has shown a lot more intent than they did in the first six. For some reason, they still continue to struggle with team combinations but it was nice to see them push MI really hard till the end and not surrender. Even though they have the Third highest wicket-taker of the season in their bowling arsenal ( Yuzi Chahal with 13 wickets), still they have lost most of the games due to bowling. This shows that cricket is a team game, not an Individual game. if you are a Kohli or RCB fan, this time hurt a bit more, because this is the seventh loss for the side, potentially ending their hopes of a play-off spot.
Probable XI: Parthiv Patel (wk), Virat Kohli (c), AB de Villiers, Marcus Stoinis, Moeen Ali, Akshdeep Nath, Pawan Negi, Umesh Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Navdeep Saini, Dale Steyn
