RR vs KKR Dream11 Prediction, Fantasy Cricket Tips, Playing XI Updates, Pitch Report & Injury Updates For Match 18 – Apr 24th 2021

Andre Russell proved in the last game, why writing him off can be a fatal mistake.



The two teams who are looking completely out of sorts and are in dire need of a win, Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals, will clash in the upcoming match of the Indian Premier League 2021. After starting their season with a win, KKR have seemingly lost the plot.

They have lost their last three games, but amidst this tough hour, the fight they showed in a lost cause against Chennai Super Kings will certainly be a big boost for them. The same cannot be said about Rajasthan, as they were completely outplayed by Bangalore in their last match.

Match Details:

Rajasthan Royals vs Kolkata Knight Riders

Venue: Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai

Date & Time: 24th April at 7:30 PM IST

Live Streaming: Star Sports Network, Disney+ Hotstar

Pitch Report:

As it was evident from the way Royal Challengers Bangalore batted in the last game, the track in Wankhede has a lot in it. But the bowlers will also get some movement in the first 6 overs or so.

Top Picks for RR vs KKR Dream11 Match:

Top Picks – Batsmen

Nitish Rana’s form has taken a dip in the last two games, but he had a fantastic start to his IPL 2021 campaign. The opening batsman scored back-to-back half-centuries in the first two games.

David Miller is also going through a similar graph. He has been poor in his last two games, but in his first match of IPL 2021, Miller scored 62 runs.

Top Picks – All-Rounders

Andre Russell proved in the last game, why writing him off can be a fatal mistake. He scored 54 runs from only 22 deliveries and also picked up a wicket.

Chris Morris went for runs in the last game but in his first three IPL 2021 games, he picked up 5 wickets. He also scored a match-winning 36 in the game against Delhi Capitals.

Top Picks – Bowlers

Pat Cummins usually makes the headlines with his bowling, but it was his batting that garnered praises in the last game. The Aussie pacer scored 66 runs from only 34 deliveries.

Chetan Sakariya went wicketless, just like every other RR bowler, in the game against Bangalore. But in his first three IPL 2021 games, he has picked up 6 wickets.

Top Picks – Wicketkeepers

If only Sanju Samson could work on his consistency, he would have been an asset for Indian cricket. He scored 119 runs in the first game, but has scored less than 30 runs in his last three games.

Suggested Playing XI No.1 for RR vs KKR Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:

Jos Buttler (C), Sanju Samson, Nitish Rana, Shubman Gill, David Miller, Andre Russell (VC), Chris Morris, Rahul Tewatia, Shivam Mavi, Mustafizur Rahman, Varun Chakravarthy

Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson (VC), Nitish Rana (C), Rahul Tripathi, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Chris Morris, Sunil Narine, Andre Russell, Pat Cummins, Jaydev Unadkat, Chetan Sakariya

RR vs KKR Risky Captaincy Choices:

Barring one knock, Jos Buttler hasn’t really made any contribution in this year’s IPL. But he scored over 300 runs last season, and once he finds his form back, the English wicketkeeper-batsman can be lethal.

The story is same for KKR’s opener Shubman Gill, who hasn’t cross the 35-run mark even once in this season, but he scored 400+ runs in the last season. He can be a differential choice for captaincy.
