Faf du Plessis was in terrific form in the previous match.
Royal Challengers Bangalore will take on Kolkata Knight Riders in the sixth match of IPL 2022 on Tuesday. KKR got off to a perfect start one could get, as they brushed past Chennai Super Kings in the opening fixture. The bowlers set up the victory as they restricted the opposition to 131, and in reply, the batters did not panic at any moment as they cruised through the chase. On the other hand, RCB lost a thrilling match against the Punjab Kings where they could not defend a target of 205. The bowlers need to pull up their socks as they will be facing another stiff task against Kolkata at the same venue.

RCB vs KKR, Match 6 Pitch Report:
Traditionally, this venue hasn’t been a very high-scoring one because of the long boundaries. A fair amount of grass on the pitch won’t help the spinners much. It also looks hard, so it should be good to bat on with good carry. The par score would be around 165. The trend has been to chase here and the previous match saw more than 200 being chased.

Top Picks for RCB vs KKR Dream11 Match:
Top Picks – Batters
Faf du Plessis started the new season with a bang, scoring 88 runs in the opening match off just 57 balls which included 7 sixes. He will be an automatic choice for this match.

Top Picks – All-Rounders
Wanindu Hasaranga was good with the ball in the previous match where he picked up a wicket. Although he was a bit expensive he can be a good pick for this match given the match-ups.
Andre Russell has a terrific record against this opposition. He will be bowling the death overs which increases his fantasy value with the ball, and also with the bat. He can be a game-changer on any given day.
Top Picks – Bowlers
David Willey is a skillful new-ball bowler and bowled really well in the opening match. He can be backed to deliver in this match.
Umesh Yadav was the player of the match, picking up 2 wickets against CSK. He will want to prove a point or two against his previous franchise.

RCB vs KKR Risky Captaincy Choices:
Sunil Narine can be trusted with the captaincy given that he might be promoted as a pinch hitter and also has a good bowling record against this opposition.
Harshal Patel won the Purple Cap last season, and with so many big players on show for this game he would fly under the radar. Given that he is used specifically at the death, risk him as your captain for this match.
Player you should avoid:
Shahbaz Ahmed is used very sparsely in bowling and bats as low as No.7. You may avoid him for this match.
