RCB vs MI Match 5 Dream11 Prediction
Both teams’ pace battery looks pretty solid on paper but the only worry can be is they got players who are making a comeback after an injury like Jofra Archer & Jason Behrendorff. Glenn Maxwell as an all-rounder is also making his comeback to International cricket after fracturing his left fibula at a friend’s party
Below is our best RCB vs MI match 5 dream11 team.
Keeper – Ishan Kishan (c)
Batsmen – Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Faf du Plessis
All-rounders – Cameron Green, Glenn Maxwell (vc), Michael Bracewell
Bowlers – Jofra Archer, Josh Hazlewood, Mohammad Siraj, Harshal Patel
Ishan Kishan is our captain for the RCB vs MI Match 5 dream11 team because of his fantastic batting form and he is doing pretty good keeping as well which provides you good chances to win bonus points while Glenn Maxwell is our vice-captain who got the ability to change the complexion in the death overs through his power slogging plus on Bengaluru pitch it is very much likely that he will also bowl his useful off-spin.

The recent performances in the IPL from RCB have made them the hot favorites to win this match but the expert bookmakers predict that it is Mumbai Indians who will win this game with a close margin as they got the winning probability in their favor with around 51 percent chances. For MI to win, Rohit Sharma, Ishant Kishan, Jason Behrendorff, Cameron Green & Suryakumar Yadav have to play a key role in the team’s success and if they are batting first they will need to make sure they impose a big total to defend as their bowling can be unpredictable.
