RCB vs KKR Dream11 Predictions: Preview
Is this finally going to be RCB’s year?
It is not often that Bangalore end up qualifying for playoffs with 2 games in hand. But RCB managed to do just that this season. Their campaign got on track with a hattrick of wins in the UAE. RCB missed an opportunity to finish in the top-2 when they failed to cross the finish line against a struggling SRH. But they put that performance behind them and registered a brilliant win over table-toppers DC. RCB have all the momentum with them heading into the eliminator. But they are up against a rampaging KKR who have been the standout team in the UAE.
KKR gunning for glory:
Kolkata Knight Riders have set the UAE leg on fire with a string of impressive performances. They have won 5 out of their 7 games here in the UAE. Their strong net run-rate helped them edge over Mumbai Indians. They will be up against RCB at Sharjah, a venue that has served them well this season. KKR look unstoppable and if Andre Russell returns to the side then the sky is the limit for this team.
