KKR vs RCB Dream11 Prediction: Royal Challengers Bengaluru will be looking for swift revenge when they clash against Kolkata Knight Riders in the 36th match of the Indian Premier League 2024 on Sunday. Kolkata thrashed Bengaluru when both teams played against each other at M Chinnaswamy Stadium and are clear favourites to clinch two more points in the home fixture at Eden Gardens. 

Shreyas Iyer-led KKR failed to defend 223 runs against Rajasthan Royals in their last game and missed out on solidifying their standings in the points table. Kolkata have registered four wins in six games and are placed second in the points table on a level with three other teams. 

On the other hand, Faf du Plessis' RCB suffered their sixth defeat of the season as they fell 25 runs short while chasing a record target of 288 against Sunrisers Hyderabad in their last game. Batters showed some signs of returning to form in the last couple of games but inconsistent bowling continues for Bengaluru this season.
