Now we will have a look towards the probable XI of RCB Team Players that can be played in the first match. As we all know how important it is to know which players are playing in the match for a Fantasy gamer. Here you will get a glimpse of the RCB Playing XI.
Now let us take a look at the best possible combination for the Royal Challengers Bangalore IPL team during the upcoming IPL season.
Royal Challengers Bangalore IPL Team management is expected to go with these two for the opening slot. Devdutt Padikal will be donning the wicket keeping duties and have a specific role in the power play that is to attack the bowler and get his team to a good start. Josh Philipe is a young campaigner and certainly on the most destructive batsman in the International format. If he gets going, he can win you matches single-handedly.
Both of these players are an integral part of the RCB Fantasy Cricket League Team. The other likely choice for the opening slot can be Virat Kohli and Devdutt Padikkal.
Their middle-order now looks much stronger with the boost of Shivam Dube and Moeen Ali. Virat Kohli has opened the innings in the previous season but things could change in this season. With WCT20 in the offing, his batting and captaincy will be tested in the most heated T20 League. AB De Villiers has recently shown some signs of coming back to international cricket after retiring in the previous year. So this season will be crucial for him to put his name into the South African contention. Shivam Dube, Glen Maxwell, Kyle Jamienson will act as a floater in the team.
With the current setup, RCB has as many as 7 bowling options for them so bowlers will be picked according to the situation. Washington has been in the Indian squad for a year so he has got the experience of the same. He bowls tight lines in the powerplay and gives nothing to the batsman. Yuzi Chahal will be leading the bowling pool as he has got the most wickets in Chinnaswamy Stadium. He bowls tough overs for the team and gets them to break through. Md Siraj and Navdeep Saini will be leading the pace attack along with Kyle Jamienson.
The other option in the fast bowlers in Mohammad Siraj, Kyle Jamienson, and Kane Richardson
Josh Philipe, Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Devdutt Padikal, Shivam Dube, Washington Sundar, Kyle Jamienson, Yuzvendra Chahal, Navdeep Saini, Md Siraj, Glenn Maxwell.
