Read this article for IPL match 35 - KKR vs RCB game analysis, KKR vs RCB Dream 11 team prediction, match summary, probable XI and more.

Rejuvenated by a World Cup call-up, Dinesh Karthik would be eager to impress India captain Virat Kohli and also arrest the Kolkata Knight Riders' three game losing streak, when they lock horns with Royal Challengers Bangalore in an Indian Premier League clash here today. It won't be easy for KKR with Andre Russell doubtful for the RCB game after injuring his left shoulder during practice at the Eden Gardens on Wednesday.

KKR vs RCB: KKR aim to push RCB to the brink

Russell, who is KKR's leading run-getter and main hope, was hit by a bouncer from a net bowler during training and was seen writhing in pain as the support staff rushed to the ground. It is the same left shoulder where Russell was hit by a Harshal Patel delivery during KKR's match against Delhi Capitals at the Kotla. Although team sources said, there was no major fracture or dislocation, it remains to be seen whether the big-hitting West Indies all-rounder is fit.

In their first-leg clash in Bengaluru, Russell made all the difference with a whirlwind 13-ball 48 to drag KKR out of the woods and guide them to a remarkable five-wicket win.

While Russell's availability is a big concern for the home side who have not won in their last three matches, and placed sixth in the points table, there would be no shortage of inspiration for 33-year old Karthik who got the nod ahead of Rishabh Pant in the 15-member World Cup contingent.

For the visitors, Kohli would want AB de Villiers and Moeen Ali to continue their good form besides him getting back among runs.

The Eden track has been a batting paradise and Kohli would also hope his floundering bowling battery get their act right, with experienced South Africa pacer Dale Steyn now also roped in as replacement to Nathan Coulter-Nile.

KKR vs RCB: Dream 11 Top 6 Picks

KKR has a great bowling lineup and you should have at least two of them. Kuldeep Yadav and Piyush Chawla have both been consistent performers in this season of the IPL and we expect them to perform similarly in this game as well. Though DC is something of a soft target, they have to keep in mind not to take the team lightly. Dinesh Karthik 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. Andre Russell is injured and he might not play in today's match.

As for RCB, you should obviously pick the two top batsmen, Virat Kohli and AB De Villiers. Against the Kolkata Knight Riders, they are expected to showcase their talents. Another player from the team that you should pick is Yuzvendra Chahal. From the RCB team, these are the only few players who are actually performing well and still give us a glimmer of hope for Kohli's team.
