Royal Challengers Bangalore, who defeated Delhi Daredevils in style in the last match, will now travel south to face Kings XI Punjab at their adopted home ground. The Holkar Stadium, Indore will host the contest between two of the big-hitting teams of the points table. While a loss for RCB will mean the end of the road for them, a loss for Punjab can well put them out of the top-four.
Holkar Stadium, Indore – Average first innings score 169
Dream Team Selection:
KL Rahul in the current form is the best choice. RCB may bring in De Kock for Parthiv. The chances of that are low but it’s better to not risk it.
The obvious options in current form are AB De Villiers and Virat Kohli. Considering the small ground dimensions, do not risk not picking Gayle, he can come to party any day. Other good options are Aaron Finch, Mandeep Singh and Karun Nair
R. Ashwin, Axar Patel, Colin De Grandhomme and Moeen Ali are available options. Pick as your budget allows you, Moeen Ali is the least pick-worthy here.
A plethora of options in this match. From Bangalore Umesh Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Mohammed Siraj and Tim Southee. Punjab offers Mujeeb, Andrew Tye, Mohit Sharma. Keep in mind that if you take all Gayle-Kohli-ABD-Rahul, you will have to sacrifice in bowling.
