RCB Playing 11: Faf du Plessis’ Royal Challengers Bangalore defeated Chennai Super Kings in their last game and now they look confident of moving into the playoffs.

Despite a not-so-comprehensive outing of the top order in the last game, Royal Challengers Bangalore managed to put up a formidable 170 on the board against CSK. They later defended it courtesy of some brilliance with the ball from Harshal Patel and Josh Hazlewood. A similar show would be expected from RCB this time in this crucial game against Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Does Mohammad Siraj deserve a place in the eleven? Mohammad Siraj has been wayward this season. He has been leaking runs in every phase of the match and completing his quota of 4 overs is clearly a headache for Faf du Plessis. After a string of underwhelming performances, does Siraj deserve a place in the eleven or should the team management look beyond the right-arm seamer and try someone like Chama Milind or a proven IPL performer like Siddharth Kaul?

No changes in the top order are expected. Despite not being on the money in the last few games, the top order won’t be changed for RCB. Virat Kohli has started getting some runs under his belt but his strike rate is under the scanner. Skipper Faf du Plessis has been hot & cold and the same goes for Glenn Maxwell. Irrespective of the form, the top order won’t change for RCB.
