Kolkata Knight Riders will take on Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 39th Match of Dream11 IPL 2020 at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi. We will provide KOL vs BLR Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Dream11 Tips.

Kolkata Knight Riders:

Kolkata Knight Riders are in a tricky situation as they are currently at the 4th position on the points table with 5 wins and 4 losses and a total of 10 points.

Knight Riders appear to be finding back their rhythm in the tournament by winnings the last match after two consecutive losses. Sunil Narine has been given a clean chit from the Dream11 IPL committee over his suspicious bowling action, which is good news for the team.

Shubman Gill has been batting decently and has been the leading run-scorer for KKR, but he has been very slow in his approach. Rahul Tripathi and Nitish Rana have played a couple of good innings but have not performed consistently in every match.

Eoin Morgan has been decent with the bat, and Dinesh Karthik played the finisher’s role brilliantly in the last match and is looking back in form. Andre Russell has been silent with the bat this season but has been very handy with the death overs ball.

Pat Cummins finally picked up a wicket in the last match after being wicketless in almost 6 matches but has been very good with the bat down the order. With the inclusion of Lockie Ferguson into the team, they appear to be a very strong side and have very high chances of qualifying for playoffs.

Varun Chakravarthy and Kuldeep Yadav also looked in the right touch in the last match and did not allow the batsmen to score freely in the middle overs.

Kolkata need not do much and need to perform decently and win a couple of matches to qualify for playoffs.

  • Shubman Gill and Rahul Tripathi are likely to open the innings for KKR.
  • The middle-order consists of Nitish Rana, skipper Eoin Morgan, and All-rounder Andre Russell.
  • Dinesh Karthik and Pat Cummins will be crucial in the lower middle order.
  • Varun Chakravarthy and Kuldeep Yadav will handle the spin attack of the team.
  • The pace attack will be Pat Cummins, Shivam Mavi, and Lockie Ferguson.

Royal Challengers Bangalore:

RCB has performed very well so far in this season as they are currently at the 3rd position on the points table with 6 wins and 3 losses and a total of 12 points.

The team’s batting unit looks very strong, but Aaron Finch and Devdutt Padikkal have been very slow in their approach, putting pressure on the middle-order batsmen. Virat Kohli has been brilliant in rotating the strike but has not hit boundaries as often as he would have wanted.

AB de Villiers is in red hot form and has taken RCB over the line many times in his IPL career. The lower middle-order also looks decent with players like Washington Sundar, Shivam Dube, and Chris Morris, who are very good hitters of the ball.

The bowling has been brilliant for RCB, including Chris Morris and Navdeep Saini bowling at a very good speed and troubling the batsmen. Isuru Udana has been a consistent wicket-taker, and Mohammad Siraj has also performed decently in the matches he played.

The spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Washington Sundar have made a big impact for RCB this season. Chahal has been consistently picking up wickets in the middle overs, and Sundar has been brilliant in the power play.

RCB has almost qualified for playoffs and has to keep performing the same way, and they will be one of the strongest contenders for the title this season.

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