In wicketkeeper, both R Pant and P Patel are good choices.

Shikhar Dhawan has slammed a couple of fifties in this season and looks in great touch

V Kohli and AB d Villiers are two key batters for RCB

Moen Ali has flown back, so M Stoinis and Axar Patel will be the best picks in all-rounders.

C Morris is  slightly doubtful as he can be replaced by S Lamichhane as per pitch conditions

Kagiso Rabada is the leading wicket-taker in the tournament and is a must-have pick.

N Saini and Y Chahal are the two best bowlers from RCB after Dale Steyn and M Ali. Unfortunately, both are unavailable.

Unavailable – Dale Steyn, Moen Ali
