RCB vs KKR Dream11 Prediction Today’s Match – RCB vs KKR Head to Head, Live Score, Match and Fantasy Team

The Tata IPL 2023 has already commenced, and in the upcoming sixth match of the season, Royal Challengers Bangalore will lock horns with Kolkata Knight Riders at the iconic Eden Gardens in Kolkata. Both the teams are well-equipped with some of the most talented players in the game, and the match promises to be an exhilarating contest. In this article, we’ll preview the match, analyze the strengths and weaknesses of both the teams, and provide a Dream11 prediction.

The Royal Challengers Bangalore are coming into this match after a convincing win over Mumbai Indians in their first game. They looked very balanced, especially with Glenn Maxwell and Michael Bracewell as the all-rounders. Faf du Plessis and Virat Kohli smashed 73 and 83* runs, respectively, in the last game and they’ll be eager to carry their form into this game. The bowling unit showed what it’s capable of, and RCB will look to continue their winning momentum.

On the other hand, Kolkata Knight Riders had a poor start to their campaign, losing their first game against Punjab Kings by 7 runs (DLS Method). Their batting looked fragile while the bowlers were not giving confidence either. KKR is heavily dependent on their overseas players, especially Andre Russell, to win games for them. Nitish Rana, Rinku Singh, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, and others need to be consistent as well. Kolkata will look to win this game and register their first win of IPL 2023.
