IPL 2023: Top 3 Vice-Captain Picks For Today’s RCB vs KKR Game

RCB vs KKR today

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will be aiming to win their 3rd game on the trot in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023. They will be taking on Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.

KKR have lost their last 4 matches on the bounce and look like a depleted and under-confident side. They need to fix their strategies, go back to the drawing board and change their entire thought process.

In the first game between these two sides this season, the KKR spinners scripted an unbelievable win over their arch-rivals, RCB. They would be hoping to continue their stellar form in this game too.

In this article, we take a look at the top 3 vice-captain picks for today’s RCB vs KKR game at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru:

1. Varun Chakravarthy (Kolkata Knight Riders)

Varun Chakravarthy

The last time when the two sides locked horns on 6th April 2023, Varun Chakravarthy spun a web and bamboozled all the RCB batters. He had taken 4 wickets and his scalps included Faf Du Plessis, Glenn Maxwell, Harshal Patel and Akash Deep.

If he can conjure magic once again with the ball for KKR, then the Knights could fancy themselves winning this game.

2. Faf Du Plessis (Royal Challengers Bangalore)

Despite having a rib injury, Faf Du Plessis has not bogged down from scoring those match-winning knocks at the top. He is RCB’s top-scorer in the ongoing IPL 2023 and also the top run-getter in IPL 2023, with 405 runs in 7 games.

In the previous game of the Bangalore team against Rajasthan Royals (RR), Faf mustered a knock of 62 runs in just 39 deliveries. He most certainly can be chosen as your vice-captain and he can fetch you a lot of points.

3. Jason Roy (Kolkata Knight Riders)

The knight in shining armor for Kolkata, Jason Roy has scored two valuable knocks in the last two games of the 2-time IPL-winning franchise. For long, KKR was without a dependable batter and Roy has finally turned the tide with his batting.

In the previous game of KKR versus Chennai Super Kings (CSK), Roy scored 61 runs in 26 balls and it was because of him that the KKR fans believed in the possibility of an improbable victory. The English batter’s aggressive knock was packed with 5 fours and 5 sixes and he batted with a staggering strike rate of 234.62.

He is expected to open the batting for KKR and can be a solid option in your fantasy team for this RCB vs KKR game.
