RCB have to get their opening combination right. RCB has been exceptional in all departments of the game except the opening stand. Faf has been doing his job pretty well, but Anuj Rawat hasn’t still risen up to the expectations. A change is expected in that slot for the upcoming game.

Virat Kohli’s form is a hot debate in the RCB camp. The major concern for RCB right now is Virat Kohli’s form. For the first time in his career, he has scored two consecutive ducks. With less than 200 runs in the season so far, it is turning out to be a nightmare season for the former captain.
