Royal Challengers Bangalore are on a roll in the Indian Premier League 2021. They have won three back-to-back matches and some of their players have been in top form. Their bowling and batting unit both seem to be in proper form to get a few more wins under their belt.
As Royal Challengers Bangalore face Rajasthan Royals, let us a look at the 3 players whom you should avoid for this contest:
Yuzvendra Chahal has taken more wickets during the Chennai leg of the IPL 2021, as the pitch there is tailor-made for spinners. But, he would be happy that he was able to pick two wickets in the previous match to get back some form.
But as a spinner, it will be a nightmare to bowl in Mumbai. The spinners have struggled on this wicket with the exception of one match where Chennai spinners bowled really well. Instead, selecting Chetan Sakariya would be a good idea, as the youngster goes for fewer credit points and has been among wickets lately.
There is a reason why Sanju Samson, having made an impression at a very early age, has not played a lot of international cricket. Since the very start of his career, the problem has been consistency. He plays well in some matches and then fails in the next few.
With him, it is slightly like a hit or miss situation. His credit score is also 9.5. Given these high numbers, Rajasthan Royals‘ captain Samson is unlikely to give you high results every day. This is why it is better to avoid him in your fantasy team when you have Virat Kohli and Devdutt Padikkal to pick.
Shivam Dube has batted at no.4 in the last two matches and it seems like the all-rounder is batting out of the position. He has struggled in all three matches so far. Apart from his 15-ball 23 in the first match, the rest of the knocks seem a little short of confidence. With the ball as well, it is unlikely that he will be used in any of the matches in Mumbai. Given the pool of all-rounders and batsmen available, it is better to avoid Shivam Dube.
