BLR vs KOL Dream11 Team Prediction | Player Stats | Dream11 IPL 2020

Royal Challengers Bangalore will take on Kolkata Knight Riders in the 28th Match of Dream11 IPL 2020 at Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah. We will provide BLR vs KOL Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Dream11 Tips.

Royal Challengers Bangalore:

RCB has performed well so far in this season as they are currently at the 4th position on the points table with 4 wins and 2 losses and a total of 8 points.

The young lad Devdutt Padikkal has been performing decently at the top for RCB, but another opener Aaron Finch hasn’t appeared to be in good touch, which might cause a problem for the team in the future. With the run machine Virat Kohli getting back to form and with Mr.360 AB de Villiers at No.4, RCB has a strong batting line.

Shivam Dube and Washington Sundar have been contributing to the team with both bat and ball whenever required. Chris Morris has come into the team from the previous match and performed brilliantly, and it looks like their death bowling has been sorted.

Navdeep Saini is bowling at a good speed and creating pressure on the batsmen, and Isuru Udana has been consistent at picking up wickets. Yuzvendra Chahal has also been picking up crucial wickets and providing the important break-throughs for the team.

Playing Mohammad Siraj in place of Gurkeerat Singh might even strengthen their team and will give more bowling options.

  • Aaron Finch and the young lad Devdutt Padikkal will open for RCB.
  • The middle-order looks good with Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Shivam Dube, and Gurkeerat Singh.
  • All-rounders Washington Sundar, Chris Morris, and Isuru Udana will be crucial in the lower middle order.
  • Isuru Udana, Navdeep Saini, Chris Morris, and Yuzvendra Chahal will form the team’s core bowling attack.

Kolkata Knight Riders:

Kolkata Knight Riders are back to winning ways as they have won two consecutive matches and are currently at the 3rd position on the points table with 4 wins and 2 losses and a total of 8 points.

Shubman Gill and Rahul Tripathi have appeared to be in good touch and are scoring runs from the top for KKR. Nitish Rana has been performing decently, and with Eoin Morgan, Andre Russell, and Dinesh Karthik in the middle order, they have an explosive batting line up.

Their main concern would be Russell’s injury in the last match and warning over Narine’s suspicious bowling attack. If these two players are not available for KKR in the further matches, then it will be a big blow for them in the future matches.

Pat Cummins is bowling well without conceding runs but has not been able to pick up wickets consistently. Prasidh Krishna played his 1st match this season and impressed everyone with his performance.

Varun Chakravarthy has also been bowling well without conceding runs and also picking up wickets at regular intervals. If Russell and Narine play for KKR, it will be difficult for other teams to beat them; otherwise, KKR has a tough task finding a balance in their team again.

  • Shubman Gill and Rahul Tripathi are likely to open the innings for KKR.
  • The middle-order consists of Nitish Rana, Eoin Morgan, and All-rounder Andre Russell.
  • Skipper Dinesh Karthik and Pat Cummins will be crucial in the lower middle order.
  • Sunil Narine and Varun Chakravarthy will form the spin attack of the team.
  • The pace attack will be looked after by Pat Cummins, Kamlesh Nagarkoti/Shivam Mavi, and Prasidh Krishna.
