KKR vs RCB Dream11 Prediction Possible 11 Fantasy Cricket Tips: IPL 2024 36th Match | KKR vs RCB Dream11 Prediction Today | Eden Gardens Pitch Report

Royal Challengers Bengaluru will be wearing their iconic green jersey in match number 36 against Kolkata Knight Riders at Eden Gardens. RCB have been soaring in their ‘flamboyant greens’ in the last two seasons of IPL with their special memories all over. Will it change RCB’s fate in this IPL? As the star-studded side has struggled, they will be hoping for a turnaround against arch rivals, KKR.

Conversely, Knight Riders are having a terrific season with four wins in six matches. Mentor Gautam Gambhir has brought that missing spark in the side which has taken them to another level, with the decision to open with Narine really paying off.

This IPL has already experienced a RCB vs KKR clash once in the initial phase, where men in purple emphatically outplayed their opponents at the Chinnaswamy. Once again, RCB will be challenged by in-form KKR at their home.

Fantasy Cricket Tips for KKR vs RCB: Key Players/Key Stats for the 36th Match of IPL 2024

Kolkata Knight Riders:

  • Sunil Narine smashed a spectacular hundred in the last game against RR and is having a season to cherish. He has scored 276 runs at a strike rate of 188 this season. He also strikes at 195.10 playing against RCB and has got 24 wickets against them.
  • Narine has fine numbers against a few RCB batters. He has dismissed Virat Kohli four times, conceding just 127 off 118. He has also conceded just 53 runs off 67 balls against du Plessis, with two dismissals.
  • Phil Salt averages 58.5 with a strike rate of 180 in two games against RCB. With 201 runs, he is the second highest run getter for his side this season.
  • Playing at Eden Gardens, Salt averages 76.5 in sample size of three innings.
  • Andre Russell is also having a great season. He has got limited opportunities to entertain but still the powerful man has made them count. He is striking at 200 this season and he has 128 runs doing so.
  • At Kolkata, he averages 35.2 and has a SR of 192.8. These numbers get even better when he plays RCB. He averages 39 with SR of 205 against them.
  • Varun Chakravarthy has 13 wickets in nine innings and 15 wickets in 11 innings when he plays against RCB and at Eden Gardens respectively. With seven wickets, he is one amongst the leading wicket takers for his side in IPL 2024.
  • Vaibhav Arora has scalped seven wickets from four innings this season out of which four has come in powerplay overs. He can prove to be an unexpected threat for RCB openers.

Royal Challengers Bengaluru:

  • Orange Cap holder Virat Kohli is in very good form with 361 runs at an average of 72. Playing against KKR, he has scored 944 runs thus far and he would love to make it at least 1,000 by the end of this game.
  • Kohli has smashed 65 off 29 against Mitchell Starc without dismissal.
  • Captain Faf du Plessis seems to be back in form as the striker has smashed scores of 44, 61 & 62 in the last three games. Playing against KKR, he is just five runs short of 500.
  • However, du Plessis averages just 16.4 in eight innings at Eden Gardens. Can he improve on this today?
  • 38-year-old Dinesh Karthik has been excellent with the blend of unorthodox strokes, which seems, he hits at his will. He has scored 226 runs this season striking at 205.
  • If gets back into the XI, Mohammed Siraj would be in a huge hurry to show up his skills and get back on track before the upcoming T20 WC. He needs to lead his bowling attack if his team has to do well. He has taken 13 wickets in 13 innings against KKR.
  • Reece Topley has a great record against Phil Salt: 16 balls, 17 runs, three wickets.

Eden Gardens Kolkata Pitch Report and Weather

Eden Gardens has one of the fastest outfields in the country and hence lots of runs should be on offer. Batters will enjoy batting here and we might see another high scoring game as the average first inning score here is 197 this year. But, spinners may have a say.

As an afternoon game, it will be very hot with temperatures exceeding 41 degrees celsius. A mouth watering clash full of runs is on the cards.
