Royal Challengers Banglore:
Predicting a RCB eleven is near to impossible considering how dumb their management has been over the years.
There have tried almost every combination & have consistently failed.
QDK, Kohli, ABD, Mandeep, CDG, Sundar/Vohra, Southee, Ashwin, Umesh, Chahal, Siraj/Saini.
*There are lot of permutations & combinations for RCB (again). They have the option of picking Parthiv as Wk for QDK & give McCullum another go.
*CDG has just faced 13 deliveries in 2 games & haven’t bowled a single ball but because RCB’s main concern is their bowling unit & their middle order, CDG is expected to retain his place to provide solidity in the middle order & play as a finisher.
*McCullum had a decent last game but can be again dropped for ABD (expected to be fit) unless they pick Parthiv as their wk & drop QDK.
*M Ashwin bowled well in the last game & got a lot of turn which means he should retain his place. Sundar was surprisingly left out in the last game can be back for this game to counter Ishan & Lewis in the PP & middle overs.
Lewis, SKY, Rohit, Ishan, Duminy, Hardik, Krunal, Fizz/Cutting, McCLeneghan, Markande, Bumrah
*No change is expected from MI after their last win apart from picking Fizz for Cutting who can be really handy in Banglore.
Cutting at 8 doesn’t make sense as you can’t expect him to give 3-4 overs at Chinnaswamy, so picking Mustafizur can be a better option for them.
*Duminy didn’t bat in the last game but can be really handy with the bat at Chinnaswamy who also has a good record there & is a decent player against spin. If MI’s top order fails, Duminy can be a really good choice for your fantasy team.
