In what is a very interesting contest between Hyderabad, Punjab, Mumbai, Rajasthan and Kolkata to reach the playoffs, Bangalore is the first time to be confirmed as eliminated. Although they bounced back after six successive losses, Bangalore’s loss to Delhi made it clear that they are no longer in contention for the playoffs. Meanwhile, Rajasthan need to win against Bangalore to stay alive in the competition for the top 4. Here is all you need to read before picking your Fantain and Dream11 teams for the Bangalore vs Rajasthan games.

Likely playing XI – Ajinkya Rahane, Sanju Samson, Steven Smith, Rahul Tripathi, Riyan Parag, Liam Livingstone, Shreyas Gopal, Ish Sodhi, Dhawal Kulkarni, Oshane Thomas, Varun Aaron.
Wicket-keeper – Parthiv Patel
Batsmen – Virat Kohli (c), Sanju Samson, Ab de Villiers, Liam Livingstone, Steve Smith (vc), Ajinkya Rahane
All-Rounders – Marcus Stoinis
Bowlers – Navdeep Saini, Shreyas Gopal, Yuzvendra Chahal
Captain and vice-captain options:
Virat Kohli is a safe choice for the captaincy slot because he will be eager to do anything that it takes to end the home games on a high and not disappoint the fans. Kohli is hungry for both a win as well as runs.
Steve Smith is an ideal candidate for vice-captaincy because this is his last game of the season and he would be looking to end it on a high, especially because he hasn’t contributed much with the bat this time.
This is our Fantain Fantasy XI but you’re the real expert.

Suggested Playing XI No.1 for Head to Head/ Small Leagues:
Keeper – Parthiv Patel
Batsmen – Ajinkya Rahane (VC), Liam Livingstone, AB de Villiers, Virat Kohli (C)
All-Rounders – Riyan Parag, Marcus Stoinis
Bowlers – Varun Aaron, Shreyas Gopal, Yuzvendra Chahal, Navdeep Saini
Fantasy Tip – Navdeep Saini has been the standout fast bowler for Bangalore, clocking consistently between 140-145kmph. On the pace-friendly Bangalore wicket, Saini would be raring to go.
Suggested Playing XI No.2 for Grand/Mega Leagues:
Keeper – Sanju Samson
Batsmen – Steve Smith, Liam Livingstone (VC), AB de Villiers (C), Ashton Turner
All-Rounders – Riyan Parag, Marcus Stoinis, Washington Sundar
Bowlers – Shreyas Gopal, Yuzvendra Chahal, Navdeep Saini
Fantasy Tip – Riyan Parag, at only 17 years of age, is one of the most consistent players for the Rajasthan team. On the batting paradise like the Chinnaswamy, he would be hoping to make the most of Bangalore’s weak bowling unit.
