The Match 17 of VIVO Indian Premier League 2019 will see Royal Challengers Bangalore welcome Kolkata Knight Riders at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. The RCB side had a dismal start to the IPL campaign, losing all their four opening matches. Although that doesn’t necessarily mean elimination from the tournament, what it does mean is that they will have to start winning matches now.

Although KKR had a great start to the campaign, their winning IPL start was brought to an end by Delhi Capitals in a thrilling contest laced with super over. They will also be looking to get things straight against RCB.

RCB vs KKR Dream11 Prediction

Royal Challengers Bangalore are not in the best shape entering the match, having lost first four IPL matches. The latest of these was a disappointing 7 wicket defeat against Rajasthan Royals. On a batting pitch, the team struggled to put up a competitive total, failed to capitalize on early wickets in the second innings and dropped half a dozen catches. If they have the ambition to make it to the Play-Offs, they will have to start winning matches soon enough.

Kolkata Knight Riders have less of a crisis in comparison. Their solitary loss against DC was also an extremely close affair, with the contest moving on to Super Over. Things are always 50:50 there. Nevertheless, with CSK losing against Mumbai Indians, KKR has a big chance of going to the top of the league table with a win.

RCB versus KKR has traditionally been a highly entertaining contest. Kolkata has been the better team of the two with a margin of 14:9. They are unbeaten against RCB in the last two seasons. The last match at the Chinnaswamy Stadium saw KKR chase down a stiff total of 185 and win by 5 wickets. Going by their history, it would be another run-fest in Bengaluru.

In terms of performances, Virat Kohli (490 runs) has been a top performer in this fixture. Sunil Narine (with 14 wickets) has been the best bowler among the two sides, with Yuzvendra Chahal closely following at 10 wickets.

Dream11 Hint

Chinnaswamy Stadium has an utterly batting-friendly pitch. Thus, choosing at least four batsmen would be recommended. Among all-rounders, Andre Russell, Sunil Narine and Marcus Stoinis would be sufficient. Among bowlers, Chahal and are a must-have.
