The 43rd match of the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) will see the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) side taking on the Rajasthan Royals (RR). This match will be played at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

And, ahead of this battle, former Indian opening batsman Aakash Chopra has picked his ideal playing XIs for both sides. Chopra feels that the RCB side would need to make just one change to their playing XI for the clash against the Rajasthan side. Chopra stated that Dan Christian does not add a lot of value to the side, and could be replaced with Sri Lankan seamer Dushmantha Chameera.

Chopra further stated that Harshal Patel has been extremely good with the ball, while Kyle Jamieson has produced decent performances as well. Chopra also feels that Devdutt Padikkal will get back to form and a big score is around the corner for the opening batsman.
