Royal Challengers Banglore (RCB) take on Delhi Capitals (DC) in the last business day of the Indian premier league (IPL) 2021 in match 56 at the Dubai International Stadium. Both teams look in a great position as both have them have qualified for the IPL 2021 playoffs. However, RCB will like to uphold their game a little bit, to finish in the top 2.
Ahead of this contest, we take a look at five players to have in your MPL fantasy team. The stats of the five players are based on their performance in their last five games for their respective franchises.
#1. Glenn Maxwell
The Australian explosive batsman has looked at his best form in the T20 league in the UAE leg of the IPL 2021. He’s scored 214 runs at an impressive strike rate of 160 and at an average of 54. He’s looked in excellent touch with his bat all throughout the season and can be a crucial player in order for RCB to lift their maiden IPL trophy.
#2. Harshal Patel
The 30-year old, Purple cap holder is one of the best bowlers we have witnessed in this IPL 2021. He’s clinched 29 wickets in the IPL 2021, most by an Indian bowler surpassing Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s 27 Wicket record in the IPL 2017.
In his last 5 IPL innings, he’s picked 12 wickets at an economy of 7.1. His control over the bowl has been exceptional and in percentage, it’s 69% which is really impressive. His dot-ball percentage is 43% which helps RCB to chock their oppositions for low score totals. Patel is an integral part of the RCB playing X1 and we hope to see more brilliant performances from the RCB bowler.
#3. Yuzvendra Chahal
The third player on our list is Yuzvendra Chahal who is one of the value picks you can have in your team. Chahal even after getting dropped from the Indian T20 squad, has performed outstandingly well in this UAE leg of the IPL 2021. He’s picked 10 wickets at an economy of 5.3. His line and length in this IPL have been exceptional.
He will be one of the experienced players on the side, who can lead RCB well in the bowling unit to win their first-ever trophy. It will be interesting to see how does Kohli use him in the power-play and in the middle overs as well.
#4. Axar Patel
Axar Patel who’s recently been picked for the T20 world cup has picked 8 wickets in his last 5 IPL innings bowling for Delhi Capitals. His economy rate (5.6) has been good throughout the season.
