Every year, the IPL brings with it some intense energy, pulsating excitement and of course, a great show of the sport. This year’s IPL tournament is no different and every evening, hardcore fans are glued to TV screens and cheer their team to victory. To get in on the action, you should look out for the Dream 11 Fantasy League, which lets you form your own team with your favourite players.

This season, however, RCB fans do not have much to uplift themselves. Though the team has some of the best batsmen in the world, they have not managed to snatch even a single victory this season. The famed pair- Kohli and De Villiers have failed to get going so far with Kohli also looking out of sorts as far as his captaincy is concerned. In the bowling front also, RCB have been dismal with Sunrisers Hyderabad's David Warner and Jonny Bairstow hitting them to every corner in their mammoth 118-run win.

KKR on the other hand, have shown enough firepower in their armoury to unsettle any opposition on their day. The threat of Andre Russell who has been swatting the cricket ball like a fly is always present besides the likes of Nitish Rana, Robin Uthappa and skipper Dinesh Karthik also being among runs. Apart from that, KKR's celebrated bowling line up will also look to cause the jittery RCB batting unit more trouble with Kuldeep Yadav, Sunil Narine and Piyush Chawla the three spinners that can cause damage.

In the head to head count too, KKR are ahead with 14 wins to RCB's nine from 23 matches till date The upcoming match today holds a lot of promise and excitement and we can’t wait for the ball to get rolling.

At any rate, if you’re looking to form your fantasy league team and are confused about which players to pick from the lot, we’ve got some suggestions for you.

Classic Fantasy Top 3 picks

The home team, RCB has to buck up and even though they have some great players on their team, the performance has been weak and not up to fans’ expectations. However, since they have two of the best batsmen in the world- Virat Kohli and A.B De Villiers, you wouldn’t go wrong with either of them. Though they are yet to show their true potential, our hopes are high and we expect them to perform to the fullest as the team is desperate for a win.

From the Kolkata team, picking one of their bowlers would be a wise choice. They have an impressive batting lineup but in the bowling department, they are capable enough to take on any team that is on a roll. Sunil Narine is one such bowler who is at the top of his form and fails to disappoint. With him on your team, you can essentially mark your win, hours before the match.

Both the teams playing today have some of the top players from the national and international cricketing scene. However, it would be amiss to assume that each of these players will perform well without doing some stat checks. Though the batting lineup of RCB is more star studded, KKR’s experienced batsmen have more than proved themselves on the field.

From RCB you should obviously pick the two top batsmen, Virat Kohli and AB De Villiers. They both are great players who possess a lot of potential, but are yet to prove themselves. Against the powerful KKR team, they are expected to showcase their talents. Another player from the team that you should pick is Yuzvendra Chahal. His bowling lends the game a unique twist and though his performance has not been top notch, fans expect great things from him this match.

On to the contenders from outside, KKR has a great bowling lineup and you should have at least two of them. Kuldeep Yadav and Andrew Russel have both been consistent performers in this season of the IPL and we expect them to perform similarly in this game as well. Though RCB is something of a soft target, they have to keep in mind not to take the team lightly. Apart from that, Dinesh Kartik is an explosive batsman who has shown his potential on the field. He has quickly become a fan favourite and with his batting prowess on side, you’ve got an unbeatable team.

We hope that the above mentioned players give you an edge over the competition when it comes to the IPL Fantasy League, 2019. Each of the players are rather promising in terms of their performance and we are eagerly looking forward to the outcome of the match.
