Fans who regularly make teams on Dream 11 would already know the significance that the captain and vice-captain hold in their fantasy teams.

KKR vs RCB Dream11 Team Selection Captain Pick: Virat Kohli
Virat Kohli might have announced that he is quitting captaincy not just of the RCB side after this season and also the national T20 side but one cannot argue the fact that the 32-year old did not do much wrong during India's tour of England, just prior to the IPL. He has been spot on with his tactical acumen and thus, would be the best choice for the captain's slot.
KKR vs RCB Dream11 Team Selection Vice-Captain Pick: Andre Russell
Andre Russell's capabilities, especially in the shortest format of the game, is not unknown at all. The big-hitting all-rounder has the ability to turn a game completely on his own and his performance would be one of the key factors determining KKR's success. He has also been in good form, recently hitting a 14-ball half-century in the Caribbean Premier League 2021.
