Royal Challengers Bangalore started their second leg of the IPL 2021 with a disappointing loss, but now they are set to face Chennai Super Kings. During the first half in India, CSK was the team that had broken RCB’s run of four wins. This will play on the minds of the RCB players. However, for the fans, it will be a great opportunity to earn some fantasy points as the two star-studded teams come against each other. 

Here are the 3 players you can leave out from fantasy teams for RCB vs CSK:

  1. Suresh Raina 

As a player grows old, his instincts become slow. His ability to react decreases slightly and it can become a bit of a problem for them. Especially being a batter, reaction and instincts have to be strong. However, Raina seems to be reacting a little late to the pacers and seems to get on the ball a little later than usual. His struggle against pace and bounce has only become more and more prevalent with time. The thing is his weakness is almost visible and it won’t take Virat Kohli and his pacers to exploit it when he comes to bat. It is better to go with some other batters. 

  1. Sachin Baby 

Sachin Baby’s selection in the first XI for the match against Royal Challengers Bangalore was something which wasn’t expected. The left-handed batter wasn’t picked up in the first leg and it was expected that he would spend time on the bench in the second leg as well. What is crucial to note though, Baby will be batting lower down the order, which isn’t something that is likely to suit him or his team. He hasn’t played two consecutive IPL matches in a very long time and it can’t be said if he is up for making it big on this level. 

  1. Yuzvendra Chahal 

Yuzvendra Chahal hasn’t had a good few months. His form with the ball since the end of the 2020 season hasn’t been good. This year, he started with some off-color performances for India which seemed to spill over to the first leg of the IPL as well. He has not been named in the T20 World Cup squad for India. Having said that, it was expected he would bounce back but he was smashed for 23 runs in his two overs against Kolkata in the previous one. Given his form and the kind of batting expertise against spin which the CSK players have, it would be advised to leave him outside of your fantasy team.
