Top Picks for RCB vs RR Dream11 Match:
Top Picks – Batters
Shimron Hetmyer has played the role of a finisher quite perfectly this season. The Royals have promoted him to number four in the batting position and he might be able to score a decent amount of runs against RCB in this match.
RCB’s success depends on the way Faf du Plessis bats in the match. This was visible in the last game when he was dismissed for just 5 runs and the entire team bundled up for 68 runs. He would be expected to provide a fiery start to the team and lead from the front.
Top Picks – All-Rounders
Shahbaz Ahmed has not been able to pick a wicket in the tournament, however, has bowled at a decent economy. With the bat, he has been able to finish matches and take on some of the finest bowlers. Shahbaz might have to play a similar role in this match as he has done in the last few matches.
Glenn Maxwell has not been the same in the previous two matches, however, he can change the course of a game at his will. He has made 124 runs in 5 matches at an average of 31 and a strike rate of 180. Maxwell is a must-have player in your fantasy team.
Top Picks – Bowlers
Yuzvendra Chahal is still leading the bowling chart with 18 wickets in 7 matches at an average of 11.33, an economy of 7.28, and a strike rate of 9.3. He is likely to play a key role against his former franchise.
Wanindu Hasaranga has provided stability to RCB’s bowling lineup and has been able to pick wickets at crucial moments. Hasaranga is the leading wicket-taker for RCB with 11 wickets across his name in 8 matches at an average of 20.18, an economy of 8.53, and a strike rate of 14.18.
Top Picks – Wicketkeeper
Jos Buttler has dominated this tournament like no other batter and might continue doing the same in this match. The current “Orange Cap” holder has made 491 runs in 7 matches at an average of 81.83 and a strike rate of 161.51. He has scored 3 centuries and 2 half-centuries.

RCB vs RR Risky Captaincy Choices:
Suyash Prabhudessai scored 34 runs off 18 deliveries in his debut match against Chennai Super Kings. However, he has not been able to score over 15 runs since that match. You can pick him in your fantasy team, however, he might be a risky captaincy choice.
Kuldeep Sen has been picked in the squad for this match. He has played 2 matches and has managed to pick 2 wickets. He might be a risky captaincy pick for this match.
Player you should avoid:
Karun Nair made 3 runs in the first match and didn’t get a chance to bat in the last one. You can avoid him in your fantasy team considering he is likely to bat in the lower-middle order.
