KOL vs RCB Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing 11, and Fantasy Cricket Tips. Kolkata Knight Riders vs Royal Challengers Bangalore will play in the 9th match of the IPL 2023 at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata.


Kolkata Knight Riders will be playing their first home game this season. They did not have a good start in their opening game and lost against the Punjab Kings by 7 runs.

Bowling first, their bowlers were expensive and were smashed all around the park by the Punjab batters. Tim Southee bowled decently and picked up 2 wickets but was expensive.

With the bat, none of their batters looked good and failed to convert their starts. Venkatesh Iyer and Andre Russell were the top scorers and scored 34 and 35 runs respectively.


Royal Challengers Bangalore have started their campaign with a win in front of their home crowd against the Mumbai Indians. They were clinical with both bat and ball in the opening game.

With the ball, their bowlers were brilliant in the powerplay and middle overs but were expensive in the death. Karn Sharma and Mohammad Siraj were the pick from the bowlers and picked up 2 and 1 wickets respectively.

Chasing with the bat, their openers Faf Du Plessis and Virat Kohli were all over the Mumbai Indians bowlers and scored 73 and 82 runs respectively. They have a decent record against KKR and will be a very interesting game to watch out for.
