Today Match Prediction for KKR vs RCB Dream11 team IPL 2021 3rd May

By Arpit Sachdeva


Today Match Prediction for KKR vs RCB: Kolkata Knight Riders will take on Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 30th match of IPL 2021 on Monday. Both sides have had a contrasting season thus far in the tournament. Royal Challengers Bangalore might have lost their last game against Punjab Kings but have fared pretty well in the tournament.

With 5 wins in 7 games, they are sitting at the third position on the points table. Harpreet Brar came in their way in the last game as he took the wickets of Virat Kohli, Glenn Maxwell and AB de Villiers. The trio would be keen to perform and get the team back on track. 

The Knight Riders, on the other hand, aren’t riding as they would be liked. Their performances have been much similar to last year. They have only managed to register two games and are coming into the game on the back of a defeat at the hands of DC. Andre Russell’s form though would give some confidence going into the game. The big guns have to step to the plate if KKR wants to turn their fortunes around in the competition.
