In order to fit Josh Hazlewood in the playing 11, the Royal Challengers Bangalore unfortunately will have to drop left-arm pacer David Wiley. The Faf du Plessis-led side have suffered a massive blow as their premier pacer Harshal Patel is unlikely to be available for the game against CSK on Tuesday. After the sudden demise of his sister, Harshal left the RCB bio-bubble after the last match against Mumbai Indians and now he will have to undergo a mandatory 3-day quarantine while joining the camp.
