KKR vs RCB Dream11 Team | Kolkata Knight Riders vs Royal Challengers Bangalore Match Preview | Fantasy Team & Team News

The match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bangalore should be all about desire. We have a team in RCB which has been horrible from day one and then we have KKR who look to have derailed. Both the teams know that losing is not an option in the match to be played on Friday.

The KKR vs RCB Dream11 Match Preview

Kolkata Knights Riders have slipped in the recent games and they need to pick themselves up soon. A week ago, they were challenging Chennai Super Kings for the top spot, but all of a sudden they find themselves struggling in the lower half of the table. The transition that took place in such a short period of time shows how a loss or win can have great impact or grave consequences.

Royal Challengers Bangalore, on the other hand, have not seen many fluctuations as they have been rock bottom from the start. The ill-fated RCB have won just one of their 8 matches so far and their tournament looks to be over if it is not over already. They have their pride to play for when they take the field against KKR.

Meanwhile, KKR would be resolved to get back to winning ways after losing 3 matches in a row. They would be upbeat about facing a lacklustre RCB who they have a good record against. However, the possible unavailability of Andre Russell due to a shoulder injury could be a piece of very bad news for them.
