Mohammad Siraj somewhat balanced his first game's performance with the second game as he went on to pick one wicket, and conceded 25 runs in the four overs of his spell. He'll be expected to much more in the upcoming matches by picking the crucial wickets for his team without giving away much runs.
Akash Deep also gave away a good amount of runs against KKR but picked up three wickets to balance it out.
Harshal Patel was the highest wicket-taker in the previous season of the IPL and made his mark in the game. Patel made a comeback in the second game as in the course of four overs, he conceded only 20 runs, picking two wickets and bowling a couple of maiden overs.
David Willey entered the game at the No. 4 position against KKR. He scored three boundaries before being dismissed, but his power-hitting will be helpful in the game wherever he’s placed.
Wanindu Hasaranga will be the bowler who breaks the crucial partnerships in the making. He has done that in the game so far, he’ll do that again. He picked four wickets in his previous game to become the leading wicket-taker for his side.
Shahbaz Ahmed will add the extra runs towards the end, just like he did against KKR. His three maximums helped RCB to cut down the chase by some big numbers when he came out to bat in the lower middle order.
With the return of Maxwell, he’ll be an anchor to the middle order and help his team to get a huge score on board. His recent stint at the Big Bash League proved to be very successful as he crossed the 150-run mark while batting. His return to the XI will prove to be very beneficial to the team, with the bat as well as the ball.
Karthik will be a strength for his team, given his skills as a finisher. He added the crucial runs in the death overs in both the games so far, and he’ll maintain that pace.
Virat will take his guard when the first wicket falls. He has been playing in the middle for a very long time, and that’s the position that works best for him. He can strike in the game when there’s an early wicket. His partnership with Faf du Plessis in the first game did wonders for the team.
Anuj Rawat has been with the team for a brief time, but he has displayed his ability to play the big shots at the top. He can surely provide the team with a good score in the powerplay if the two openers manage to create an understanding on the field and take the game long.
Faf du Plessis campaign with the RCB camp as their opener has been good so far. He scored a blistering 88 off 57 balls in his first outing against PBKS. He started off slow but picked up pace when he had Virat Kohli at the other end. In his second game, he could score only five runs as he was dismissed early by Tim Southee while playing against KKR.
