IPL 2018, Match 29: FPJ’s Dream XI for Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kolkata Knight Riders


Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) side failed to deliver in all departments in 6 matches so far. Having lost the last close match against CSK, RCB will look to bounce back strongly and make amends to what has been a not so ideal first half of this season. RCB are at the sixth place with two wins and four defeats, KKR is placed at no 4 with three wins and four losses. Here we bring to you the probable dream XI for the Challengers:

RCB: Virat Kohli (C), Quinton de Kock, AB de Villiers, Corey Anderson, Umesh Yadav, Washington Sundar, Mohammed Siraj, Mandeep Singh, Chris Woakes, Navdeep Saini, Kulwant Khejroliya

Similar to RCB, KKR also suffered a big loss to Delhi Daredevils in their previous match. KKR who are two-time champions will be keen to get back on winning ways. Playing against DD, KKR’s batting line-up struggled to chase a mammoth total. Their bowler also leaked too many runs. Their top batting order needs to live up to the expectations and contribute. Here is the probable dream XI for the Knight Riders:

KKR: Sunil Narine, Chriss Lynn, Robin Uthappa, Nitish Rana, Dinesh Karthik (C and WK), Shubman Gill, Kuldeep Yadav, Andre Russell, Piyush Chawla, Tom Curran, Mitchell Johnson,
