We are almost at the end of the league stage of the 2020 Indian Premier League (IPL). It’s match no. 48 of the IPL and it’s Royal Challengers Bangalore against the Mumbai Indians for the second time this season. RCB’s bowling has been better in this edition when compared to other seasons.

Their batting has always been their strength and they will be expecting their batters to go big against MI and bag those two points. MI will be looking to rectify their mistakes from their loss against Rajasthan Royals (RR) and they too will be looking to win the contest.

Their bowlers were mauled by the RR batters, but their batsmen did well though, putting a high score on the board. It will be a game which is likely to go down to the wire as both the teams will be looking to bag those two points and become the first team to qualify for the playoffs.

Here are 3 players whom you can exclude from your Dream11 team for MI vs RCB:

1. Navdeep Saini (8 credits)

Navdeep Saini has been brilliant with the ball for RCB on most of the occasions this season. But the injury cloud hovering over him will definitely affect him and his team’s performance. There is still no clarity on his availability for the game against MI and this can be the obvious reason for you to exclude him from your Dream11 team.

2. Krunal Pandya (8 credits)

Krunal Pandya has been a find for MI since he first started playing for them. He is a brilliant all-rounder and can clear the boundary easily and bowl in a decent manner in the middle overs with few wickets as well. But, with MI consisting of players like Kieron Pollard and Hardik Pandya, you can choose to exclude Krunal from your Dream11 team.

3. Moeen Ali (8 credits)

Moeen Ali hasn’t got many opportunities this season and whenever he got one, he hasn’t made the most of it. Keeping in mind his form, Moeen could be benched for the upcoming game and can be replaced by any overseas player. So you can exclude him from your Dream11 team and look for other options on offer.
