IPL 2024 RCB vs KKR Best Playing 11 and Fantasy Team for Today

Virat Kohli vs Shreyas Iyer in focus as we look at the TATA IPL 2024 RCB vs KKR best playing 11 and dream11 analysis for match 10. 

It’s match 10 of the TATA IPL 2024, and we have the Royal Challengers Bengaluru taking on the Kolkata Knight Riders at the prolific Chinnaswamy Stadium of Bengaluru. This is RCB’s third encounter as compared to KKR’s second. While RCB lost the first match, they made a good comeback to win their last encounter against PBKS. Whereas KKR got off to a great start by defeating SRH in their opening contest.

Both teams are batting heavy with exciting strikers in each team. While RCB have the likes of du Plessis, Virat Kohli, Maxwell, Green, etc., KKR have the likes of Phil Salt, Rinku Singh, Andre Russell, etc. But when it comes to bowling, KKR are a touch better with spin being their main arsenal. However, for the Bengaluru pitch, spin may not play much of a role, so it promises to be a competitive contest.

From the pitch perspective, expect a high-scoring contest given the strong batting lineup of both teams. But what team combination and Fantasy 11 will both the teams adopt? Well, let’s look at IPL 2024 RCB vs KKR best playing 11, and Dream Fantasy XI team for match 10 of the tournament. Before that, let’s look at the key match details and official squad for both teams.

Royal Challengers Bengaluru Best Playing 11 vs KKR

Royal Challengers Bengaluru almost got their batting -order right in the last match against PBKS. The team played Cameron Green at the top with Rajat Patidar at 4, and Glenn Maxwell at 5. However, an ideal batting-order would be where Cameron Green opens the innings, and Virat Kohli plays at the number 3 position. If this happens, it will be for the greater good for RCB, the team. 

However, expect RCB to stick to the same playing 11 and batting-order combination. The only change they could do is play Vyshakvijay Kumar as the impact player ahead of Karn Sharma given Bengaluru’s pace-friendly conditions. Meanwhile, all eyes will be on Faf du Plessis and Glenn Maxwell as both didn’t have a good outing against PBKS. Both have had disappointing returns so far in IPL 2024, and will like to amend those.

Kolkata Knight Riders Best Playing 11 vs RCB

Coming to KKR’s playing 11, the batting-order looked a throwback to 2018 when Gautam Gambhir was the captain of the side. Gautam Gambhir had played Sunil Narine as the opener at that time, and he is doing the same in 2024 as well. Narine was quite successful at that time as an opener, but is the move still valid now in 2024? Well, the strategy is debatable, and unless we see a few matches, we really can’t say anything. 

Given that KKR started their campaign with a win, expect them to stick to the same playing 11 combination. So, Narine and Phil Salt should open the batting with Venkatesh Iyer at 3, Nitish Rana at 4, and Shreyas Iyer at 5. In terms of bowling, Harshit Rana did a great job for them, but Mitchell Starc was expensive, so KRK would be hoping for better returns from Starc.
