Royal Challengers Bangalore take on Kolkata Night Riders tonight in the 28th Match of the Indian Premier League 2020. The match will be held at Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah.
Both the teams sit at the middle of the points table with 8 points each but KKR has a better net run rate of +0.017 compared to RCB’s -0.820.
Let's take a look at the Fantasy picks, predictions, and probable XI for this game.
Fantasy League picks
The boundaries at Sharjah Cricket Stadium are small and with the explosiveness these two teams are packed with, a high scoring game of cricket is expected. Here are some picks for your Fantasy Cricket Leagues which we think might make a difference.
Shubman Gill is in great form and provides the start KKR needs. He has scored 221 runs in 6 matches at a strike rate of 117. He will play a vital role in KKR’s success in upcoming matches.
Captain and Vice-Captain
For your Fantasy Cricket team captain, Virat Kohli is a great choice as he has consistently improved his scores against KKR and he seems to be back on his mojo after a rough start in this season of IPL. Nitish Rana can be picked as a Vice-Captain. He has scored 141 runs at a strike rate of 145 in 6 matches.
Washinton Sundar has impressed everyone with his bowling in the powerplay. He is a great wicket taking option at RCB’s disposal and should definitely make the cut in your fantasy cricket team.
With his experience and t20 records, Aaron Finch has not delivered in this season of IPL. He has managed to score only 124 runs in 6 matches.
Washington Sundar, Varun Chakravarthy, Navdeep Saini have proved themselves as wicket-taking, economical bowlers. They can scalp early wickets which can change the direction the match goes in.
Predictions, My XI, and Probable XI
My XI– Virat Kohli (Captain), Nitish Rana (Vice-Captain), Shubman Gill, Washington Sundar, AB de Villiers, Varun Chakravarthy, Navdeep Saini, Eoin Morgan, Dinesh Karthik, Rahul Tripathi, Devdutt Padikkal.
If Andre Russell has not recovered from his leg injury, Lockie Ferguson could take his place.
Probable XI (KKR)- Shubman Gill, Rahul Tripathi, Nitish Rana, Eoin Morgan, Dinesh Karthik (c&wk), Andre Russell*, Sunil Narine*, Pat Cummins, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Prasidh Krishna, Varun Chakravarthy.
RCB will and should continue with the same squad.
Probable XI (RCB)- Devdutt Padikkal, Aaron Finch, Virat Kohli (c), AB de Villiers (wk), Shivam Dube, Gurkeerat Singh Mann, Chris Morris, Washington Sundar, Isuru Udana, Navdeep Saini, Yuzvendra Chahal.
It's anyone's game really. Kohli has started amassing runs, Yuzi is taking wickets, Dinesh Karthik can score some big runs. Tough to predict really but the scales slightly tipping towards RCB.
