Dream11 Tips and Prediction

Match 43 of IPL 2019 is between Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals at Eden Gardens.

Today’s match is vital for both teams, for obvious reasons. Rajasthan, after the result of the RCB vs KXIP match, have fallen to last place on the IPL 2019 points table.

KKR have lost five matches in a row and sit at sixth position.

For today’s IPL match, the must-haves for Dream11 fantasy game are several. Let’s have a look at the scenarios.

KOLKATA KNIGHT RIDERS & RAJASTHAN ROYALS LIKELY TEAMS

For their last game, KKR made three changes against SRH hoping for a turnaround. Rinku Singh (replacing Robin Uthappa) scored 30 off 25 balls (second highest of the innings) while Yarra Prithviraj (replacing Prasidh Krishna) and KC Cariappa (infor Kuldeep Yadav) bowled five overs between them for 63 runs and one wicket. With just one of the three making significant contribution, will KKR revert to their tested players or give the freshers one more go?

In a crunch match, going with the experienced lot makes sense.

KKR likely XI: 1 Chris Lynn, 2 Sunil Narine, 3 Shubman Gill, 4 Nitish Rana, 5 Rinku Singh, 6 Andre Russell, 7 Dinesh Karthik (capt/wk), 8 Piyush Chawla, 9 Kuldeep Yadav, 10 Harry Gurney, 11 Yarra Prithviraj/Prasidh Krishna

Expected changes: Kuldeep Yadav for KC Cariappa.

With three straight first-ball ducks, Ashton Turner’s IPL career is off to a nightmarish start. He could lose his place to Liam Livingstone who has played just one match so far.

RR likely XI: 1 Ajinkya Rahane, 2 Sanju Samson (wk), 3 Steven Smith (capt), 4 Ben Stokes, 5 Riyan Parag, 6 Liam Livingstone, 7 Stuart Binny, 8 Shreyas Gopal, 9 Jofra Archer, 10 Jaydev Unadkat, 11 Dhawal Kulkarni

Expected changes: Liam Livingstone for Ashon Turner.
