RR vs KKR Dream11 Prediction

This will be a blockbuster of the season between two teams that have done extremely well so far. Both Lucknow Supergiants and Royal Challengers Bangalore have won four games and lost two each. The pattern of wins and defeats was identical for both teams.

RCB also loves Lucknow and has four wins from six matches and is third behind Lucknow. Royal Challengers Bangalore is also doing well this season.

After succumbing to a defeat to CSK, Faf du Plessis and his feisty group of lads came back strong in the next match, beating Delhi Capitals. Dinesh Karthik and Josh Hazlewood did the job for the Royal Challengers in their previous match and would try to put in another extended performance against an in-form LSG. The pass rate of Dinesh Karthik this season is 209.57.

In the final match itself, despite losing early wickets, Glenn Maxwell and Dinesh Karthik took the team to a total of 189, which was an exceptional performance. Bangalore looks perfectly rested as their bowling is also solid after the arrival of Josh Hazlewood and Harshal Patel.

Harshal Patel, after missing the previous match, made a comeback against Delhi Capitals when he replaced another pacer Akash Deep. His return should ensure that there are no changes to RCB’s playing XI.

Meanwhile, Royal Challengers Bangalore also had a similar story this season. They lost their opening game of the tournament before racking up a hat-trick of wins to cement their position at the top of the table. However, RCB lost the game to CSK last week before beating Delhi Capitals by 16 runs.

Wanindu Hasaranga has amassed 11 wickets in 6 IPL 2022 games, maintaining an average of 18 and scalping at least one wicket in each game. He will be the player to watch out for apart from Dinesh Karthik who has set the podium on fire and hopes to represent India again at the 2022 T20I World Cup.

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will play the 2022 IPL under Faf Du Plessis, who has played over 100 matches in IPL history to date. Notably, the 37-year-old scored 633 runs for CSK in last year’s IPL-winning campaign. He scored the highest score for Royal Challengers Bangalore against PBKS, scoring 88 albeit in a losing cause.

The RCB captaincy had become vacant when previous captain Virat Kohli announced before the start of the 2021 season that it would be his last as franchise captain. The veteran batter from South Africa was bought by the RCB for INR 7 crore at the IPL 2022 Mega Auction. He has broken 154 runs so far in IPL 2022 with an average of 25.67 and is the 2nd greatest run-getter of Royal Challengers Bangalore.
