Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Kings XI Punjab- Namma11 Fantasy Tips
The Star for RCB in the last match with the bat in hand was the youngster Devdutt Paddikal and the established Ab de Villiers. Both batsmen stroked crucial half-centuries and helped their team win their opening match. These two should be starring in your fantasy XI considering their fine form.
Virat Kohli in the last match missed out as he only made 14 but the RCB skipper is never far away from scoring runs. Plus Kohli has a terrific record against XI and he will be looking to set the stage on fire when once again play against them. Kohli can also be picked as a captain of your fantasy XI for this match.
In the bowling department of RCB, you just can’t look beyond Yuzvendra Chahal. The leggie produced a brilliant performance against the Sunrisers and was awarded the man of the match for his 3 wickets.
Key RCB Players – Kohli, Chahal, Ab de Villiers
Now shifting focus to KXIP and we have to begin with Mayank Agarwal. The right-handed batsman was a lone warrior for his side in their opening match as he produced a sublime knock. Under pressure in a run chase, he almost took his side single-handedly over the finishing line.
Agarwal should be a sure shot pick in your team and can also be easily made Captain or Vice-captain of your squad.
Much like Kohli, KXIP skipper KL Rahul also missed out with the bat in the last match. Rahul will be hoping to lead from the front and help his side clinch a victory over his old franchise RCB. The elegant batsman doesn’t often fail twice in T20 cricket and all his fans will be hoping to see Vintage Rahul once again.
Mohammad Shami with the ball also showed quality in the previous match for KXIP. The young teenage sensation Ravi Bishnoi also looked promising is his debut IPL match. KXIP might look to play Mujeeb Ur Rahman in place of a foreign fast bowler considering his record against Kohli in the past.

Kings XI Punjab: KL Rahul (c and wk), Mayank Agarwal, Karun Nair, Nicholas Pooran, Glenn Maxwell, Sarfaraz Khan, Krishnappa Gowtham, Mohammed Shami, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Hardus Viljoen/ Sheldon Cottrell, Ravi Bishnoi.
