MI vs RCB Match 54 Probable Playing XIIs
Mumbai has injury concerns for this game as Tilak Varma is not 100% fit so it will be an interesting call to see if they utilize him as an impact sub. If Tilak is fit then we expect Mumbai to bring in a spinner in place of Suryakumar Yadav to further strengthen their bowling options as an impact player.
Kedhar Jadhav was added to the franchise in mid IPL so it is likely they will utilize him in the first playing XI and then replace him with Harshal Patel once he has played his part.
Below are the MI vs RCB Match 54 probable playing XIIs.
Probable XII: 1 Ishan Kishan (wk), 2 Rohit Sharma (capt), 3 Cameron Green, 4 Suryakumar Yadav, 5 Tilak Varma/Tristan Stubbs, 6 Nehal Wadhera, 7 Tim David, 8 Piyush Chawla, 9 Hrithik Shokeen/Kumar Kartikeya/Raghav Goyal, 10 Jofra Archer, 11 Akash Madhwal, 12 Arjun Tendulkar/Arshad Khan
Royal Challengers Bangalore:
Probable XII: 1 Virat Kohli, 2 Faf du Plessis, 3 Glenn Maxwell, 4 Mahipal Lomror, 5 Dinesh Karthik (wk), 6 Anuj Rawat/Shahbaz Ahmed, 7 Kedar Jadhav, 8 Wanindu Hasaranga, 9 Harshal Patel, 10 Karn Sharma/Vyshak Vijaykumar, 11 Josh Hazlewood, 12 Mohammed Siraj
MI vs RCB Match 54 Dream11 Prediction
Looking at the past matches we expect batters to play a much bigger role tonight to earn you the maximum fantasy points than the bowlers due to the flat nature of the surface. However, quality bowlers like Siraj, Josh & Hasaranga will still be hard to play big shots and can provide their team with crucial wickets on this flat surface early on.
Below is our best possible MI vs RCB Match 54 Dream11 team.
Wicket-Keeper – Ishan Kishan
Batsmen – Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis, Suryakumar Yadav
All-rounders – Glenn Maxwell (vc), Wanindu Hasaranga, Cameron Green (c)
Bowlers – Piyush Chawla, Josh Hazlewood, Mohammad Siraj, Harshal Patel
\For leadership, tonight we have gone with all-rounders with Green as our captain and Maxwell as the vice-captain. Both will have a major role to play with both bat & ball which provides maximum chances to grab the bonus points.
