RCB Playing XI vs KKR – KKR vs RCB: The Royal Challengers Bangalore, managed by Faf du Plessis, and the two-time champions Kolkata Knight Riders will square off in the ninth game of the ongoing Indian Premier League 2023 on Thursday, April 6. In their previous game, performances of both sides were contrasting. In their opening game, KKR lost to PBKS by 7 runs (DLS method) in a rain-affected contest.

RCB will be confident of winning against Kolkata since Virat Kohli is back in form, while KKR has been having problems with injuries and player availability. So here we look at the strongest Playing XI that RCB can field vs KKR.

- Reece Topley will miss the KKR vs RCB game after dislocating his shoulder during the RCB vs MI game. The pacer has travelled to Kolkata to support his team but he will most definitely sit out of the Thursday clash.
- In the XI, David Willey is most likely to take Topley’s place.
- Injured Josh Hazlewood is still unavailable for RCB.
- Sri Lankan Wanindu Hasaranga is also not availaible.
