IPL 2019, KKR vs RCB Dream11 Team Prediction & Playing XI: Head-to-Head Stats, IPL Fantasy Cricket Tips for the Kolkata Knight Riders vs Royal Challengers Bangalore Dream11 team – 19th April 2019

In the 35th match of IPL 2019, Kolkata Knight Riders will take on the Royal Challengers Bangalore on 19th April at Eden Gardens in Kolkata. KKR vs RCB match preview.

KKR is at the sixth place in IPL points table with 4 win and 4 losses in their eight league matches so far. On the other hand, RCB is at the bottom of the table with 7 losses and one win in their eight league matches so far. 

Both KKR and RCB, are coming here after facing defeat in their previous encounters. KKR lost to CSK while MI defeated RCB. KKR got off to a good start in IPL 2019 but in last few matches KKR has failed to perform as a team. Their over-dependence on Andre Russel is something that they need to take care of. But the injury of Andre Russell has been the area of concern for the hosts in the past couple of matches. Dinesh Karthik is completely out of form this season. Nitish Rana after two consecutive fifties in first two matches has failed to give any dominant performance. KKR needs to give collective performance if they want to go ahead in the tournament.

RCB, on the other hand, are trying everything but the only thing they are getting is defeat. RCBs overdependence on AB De Villiers and Virat Kohli and poor performance from the bowling department are two of the main reasons behind RCBs poor performance. There is still some hope for the Royals to qualify for the playoffs if they win remaining six matches from now on. But one more defeat for RCB means they’ll be completely out of the tournament.
