BLR vs KOL Dream11 Prediction and Playing XI: 10th Match, IPL 2021

BLR vs KOL Dream11 Prediction: 10th Match, IPL 2021

Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kolkata Knight Riders will play against each other in the 10th match of IPL 2021 at MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai. We will cover BLR vs KOL Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips.

Royal Challengers Bangalore:

Royal Challengers Bangalore have been performing brilliantly so far as they have won two out of the two matches and are currently at the top of the points table with four points. Their bowlers performed very well once again in the last game, and as a result, they won the match by six runs.

Devdutt Padikkal and Virat Kohli opened the innings, and Padikkal got out early, but Virat Kohli has appeared to be batting decently so far in this season. Surprisingly, Shahbaz Ahmed batted at No.3 but couldn’t score much.

Maxwell appeared to be in perfect form in the middle-order as he scored a fifty in the last match. After a brilliant knock in the first match, ABD got out for just one run in the second. Washington Sundar and Daniel Christian have appeared to be struggling to score runs so far in this season. 

The bowlers have been performing very well and picked up wickets consistently in both matches. Harshal Patel has appeared to be in excellent form and is currently the leading wicket-taker. Shahbaz Ahmed bowled brilliantly in the last game, picking up three wickets. Mohammed Siraj and Kyle Jamieson also bowled well, picking up two and one wicket, respectively.

Royal Challengers Bangalore have been performing very well, but they need to work a bit more on their batting lineup as they cannot always depend on their bowling to win the matches.

Kolkata Knight Riders:

Kolkata Knight Riders have performed decently so far as they have won one out of the two matches and are currently at the 6th position on the points table with two points. They had to face disappointment in the last game as they lost from a winning momentum by ten runs.

Nitish Rana has been in brilliant form this season as he has scored two back-to-back fifties opening for the team. His partner, Shubman Gill, has also been performing decently. Tripathi, after an excellent performance in the first match, got out cheaply in the last game.

The middle-order of KKR has some outstanding players like Russell, Morgan, and Shakib Al Hasan, but all of them have been struggling very much so far to score runs. Dinesh Karthik has been doing the finisher’s role very well, but he is not getting enough support from the other end.

The bowling department has appeared to be in right touch as they have been picking up wickets consistently. Prasidh Krishna, Pat Cummins, Shakib Al Hasan, and Andre Russell have shared the most wickets. Russell bowled brilliantly in the last match, picking up five wickets in just two overs. 

Kolkata Knight Riders need to focus on their middle-order batting lineup and come up with a solution as early as possible if they want to win matches consistently.
