RCB vs DC Match 20 Probable Playing XIs
Good news for RCB as Wanindu Hasaranga is finally available and has fulfilled all his International commitments and we expect him to play this RCB vs DC Match 20 by replacing either David Willey or Wayne Parnell. Josh Hazlewood has also joined the franchise but he won’t be available for this game. We also expect Akash Deep to make a comeback into RCB playing XI in place of Karn Sharma.
The Capitals also got Mitchell Marsh back as he missed the last two games due to his wedding and will most likely replace Rovman Powell. We expect Prithvi Shaw to be subbed out to make way for either Mukesh Kumar or Chetan Sakariya when they bowl to provide them more bowling options to defend the total.

Batsmen – Virat Kohli (c), Faf du Plessis (vc), David Warner, Manish Pandey
