There have been instances in the past where Royal Challengers Bangalore have looked dangerous, but ultimately couldn’t get their hands on the trophy. Hence, their fans might be a bit cautious in their celebrations this time, but it has to be admitted that they have been at their flamboyant best in this season.

Virat Kohli’s men have won three games in a row and will try to make Rajasthan Royals their fourth victim. The Royals haven’t been as ecstatic a camp, as they have lost 2 of their first 3 matches. They will be aiming a comeback, but given the strength team they will face, that looks very difficult.

Match Details:

Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Rajasthan Royals

Venue: Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai

Date & Time: 22nd April at 7:30 PM IST

Pitch Report:

The Wankhede Stadium track has played out in a very strange manner in IPL 2021. There have been instances of teams scoring 190+ runs, and there have also been instances of teams failing to score 150. Overall, it is generally a batting-friendly surface.

Top Picks for RCB vs RR Dream11 Match:

Top Picks – Batsmen

Virat Kohli failed to perform in the last game, but he got off to good starts in the two matches prior to that. He scored 30+ runs in both of his first two IPL 2021 games.

David Miller shouldn’t be blamed for Rajasthan’s batting collapse against CSK, as almost every batsman failed to put up a fight. But in their win against Delhi Capitals, David Miller scored 62 runs.

Top Picks – All-Rounders

Glenn Maxwell has always fetched himself lucrative contract amounts, but this is the year where he seems to be justifying it with his abilities. He has scored two half-centuries in his last two games.

Chris Morris is another player, albeit from the other team, who is justifying his price tag. He picked up 2 wickets in the last game, while in the match against Delhi, he won the game for the Royals by scoring 36 runs.

Top Picks – Bowlers

Harshal Patel has unlocked his true potential in this season’s IPL. He has picked up 4 wickets in his last 2 games, while in the match against Mumbai Indians, he took a fifer.

Chetan Sakariya’s story is something that will inspire millions across the country to pursue their dreams. In his first season in IPL, he has already picked up 6 wickets in 3 games.

Top Picks – Wicketkeepers

AB de Villiers is the Benjamin Button of cricket. He started off his IPL 2021 campaign with a 48 against Mumbai Indians, and in his last match, he scored 76 runs from only 34 deliveries.

RCB vs RR Must Picks for Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:

Player Statistics (Last 5 T20s) Dream11 Points
Virat Kohli 152 runs 18, 53, 57, 107, 5
AB de Villiers 216 runs 117, 19, 84, 103, 52
Jos Buttler 137 runs 76, 14, 40, 78, 27
Chris Morris 45 runs, 7 wickets 60, 83, 62, 8, 73
Glenn Maxwell 195 runs, 2 wickets 105, 92, 56, 5, 106

Suggested Playing XI No.1 for RCB vs RR Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:

AB de Villiers (C), Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson, Virat Kohli (VC), Devdutt Padikkal, David Miller, Shahbaz Ahmed, Glenn Maxwell, Harshal Patel, Mustafizur Rahman, Chetan Sakariya

Suggested Playing XI No.2 for RCB vs RR Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:

Jos Buttler (C), AB de Villiers, Virat Kohli, Manan Vohra, Riyan Parag, Glenn Maxwell (VC), Chris Morris, Rahul Tewatia, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kane Richardson, Kyle Jamieson

RCB vs RR Risky Captaincy Choices:

Sanju Samson has issues with maintaining consistency, but he is lethal when it is his day. While he failed to perform in the last two games, his 119 against Punjab Kings is good enough a reason to pick him in your fantasy team.

Jos Buttler finally got into his groove in his last game, as he scored 49 runs from 35 deliveries. Had it not been for the six which forced the change of ball, he could have taken RR over the finish line.

Player you should avoid

Washington Sundar is neither getting enough chances with the ball, nor is he coming to bat at a position where he can face a lot of balls. Hence, you can avoid picking him for this game.
