Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kolkata Knight Riders will clash in the Eliminator match of IPL 2021 at Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah. We will cover BLR vs KOL Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing 11, and Fantasy Cricket Tips of IPL 2021.
Royal Challengers Bangalore:
Royal Challengers Bangalore won their last match of the league and finished at the 3rd position on the IPL 2021 points table with 18 points.
Virat Kohli and Devdutt Padikkal’s form has taken a dip in the recent matches, and they have failed to provide a good start. Srikar Bharat is back at No.3 and batted brilliantly, scoring 78* runs along with Maxwell’s 51* runs which took them to a thrilling victory, but Ab de Villiers has not achieved much recently.
The bowlers underperformed in the last match. Siraj has been controlling the flow of runs well and finally managed to pick up wickets in the previous game. Chahal, Harshal Patel, and Christian got one wicket each.
RCB would be hoping to continue the momentum and win the Eliminator against Kolkata Knight Riders.
Kolkata Knight Riders:
Kolkata Knight Riders made a brilliant comeback in IPL 2021 and won seven out of the 14 matches and finished at the 4th position on the IPL 2021 points table with 14 points.
Shubman Gill is back in form as he scored two back-to-back fifties, and Venkatesh Iyer has been playing sensibly at the top. Nitish Rana is in good shape and was promoted to No.3 but fell early in the last match. Rahul Tripathi and Dinesh Karthik batted well and provided an excellent finish to the team.
The spinners were the consistent wicket-takers for the team in IPL 2021, but the pacers performed brilliantly in the previous game. Shivam Mavi and Lockie Ferguson picked up four and three wickets, respectively. Varun Chakravarthy and Shakib Al Hasan managed to pick up one wicket each.
Kolkata appears to be an improved side and has an excellent chance to win the Eliminator against RCB.
