RCB and DD will be up against it tonight, as the two franchises have been pegged back to the wall for yet another season in the IPL.
Virat Kohli seems like a disheartened warrior, searching for almighty intervention in order to help RCB get rid of this black cloud that has engulfed the franchise.
Despite a few changes in the team setup, the same old troubles persist for RCB, as their top heavy side hasn’t really been able to win as a unit.
For Delhi, the issue is not about the balance, but of players not being able to perform to the level that they should.
Shreyas Iyer and Chris Morris haven’t been able to create any sort of impact this season and have been the major reasons for Delhi not being able to make their presence felt at the top of the table.
Both franchises have their own issues and will need to get them sorted as soon as possible in order to make that late charge for the playoff spot.
Let’s get to business now!
IPL Fantasy League(Fantasy Tips for RCB vs DD)
Transfer out: Sunil Narine, Andre Russell, Suryakumar Yadav
Transfer in: Virat Kohli, ABD, Rahul Tewatia
Now, I already have Shahbaz Nadeem in my team for this game.
Virat Kohli would be the first player that I get into my side for this game. Kohli was the lone warrior in RCB’s loss to MI and has been striking the ball brilliantly. Also, if he promotes himself to the opener’s role, his chances of going big increase multifold.
AB de Villiers disappointed massively in the last game, holing out in the deep when RCB needed him the most. Can you expect a determined AB to grace the Chinnaswamy tonight? Well, you should, as he is due a big one.
Also, if he is used in that number 3 role, his chances of scoring big in both innings increase manifold.
Get the duo in tonight, we could be in for some magic.
Now, when it comes to the DD side, things get a little tricky. While the RCB batting does have a lot of firepower, sadly their bowling does not.
Hence, if you want to, you should be getting in a DD batsman.
Rishabh Pant would be the safest option, as he bats at number 3 and is sure to give you a few bonus points with his wicketkeeping skills.
Now, if you want to be a little adventurous Glenn Maxwell could be the one to draft in, but only if DD bat first, as captains have this tendency of saving Maxwell right till the end in a tricky chase.
Jason Roy is also a good option, as he bats at the top of the order and already has a score of 90 plus to his name.
Rishabh Pant though would be the safest option here and I will be going in with him.
Rahul Tewatia is the standout uncapped player for this game.
Match Powerplayer: Virat Kohli(if RCB bat second)/AB de Villiers(if RCB bat first)
2nd innings: AB de Villiers(if RCB bats second)/Rishabh Pant(if DD bat second)
Fandromeda(Fantasy Tips for RCB vs DD)
Transfer out: Sunil Narine, Chris Lynn, Chris Gayle
Transfer in: Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Chris Morris
Now, I don’t have any players from this game in my side.
Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers and Rishabh Pant would be the first three players that I get in for this game, for reasons already mentioned in the IPL Fantasy League section.
Now, if you want to go in for another transfer for this game and hope that the evening game turns out to be a high scoring encounter, you can get in Jason Roy/Glenn Maxwell.
Get in Maxwell if DD bat first and Jason Roy if DD bat second. However, because I don’t have any bowling option available for this game, I will have to bring Morris in and just hope that he gets going with either bat or ball today.
