RCB Playing 11 today: The Sportsrush presents before you RCB’s Predicted Playing 11 for their 10th match of IPL 2019.
The equation is simple for RCB. Win all the matches, get to 14 points and hope for the best. RCB need to win this one desperately. They should be bolstered by the return of AB de Villiers. Having a positive frame of mind will be essential for RCB. The presence of Steyn should help their bowling attack as well. Kohli’s men would be upbeat and raring to go and enjoy themselves.

The top order is in some form for RCB. Parthiv Patel has made his fair share of contributions in this IPL. He would like to keep doing that. Virat Kohli showed everyone the kind of form he is in. A brilliantly crafter century is sure to get the Indian captain pumped for much more.
AB de Villiers will probably come back into the team. If he can also bat like he did in his last two innings, RCB will be absolutely unstoppable.
Our batsmen clearly played to win last night. Led by Captain Virat, Moeen Ali stayed consistent to his great form. Here are the standout batting performances from last night’s match. #PlayBold like this, Challengers! pic.twitter.com/MRqbDpCdwr

The RCB middle order is looking very threatening right now. The way Moeen Ali batted took the game away from KKR last night. He was a horror for the bowlers and the Eden Gardens crowd. He needs to continue in the same vein along with Marcus Stoinis who also played a brilliant cameo at the end to get RCB to 213. These two can also bowl and are a huge asset. Akshdeep Nath and Pawan Negi would be rounding up the batting order for the RCB team.
The arrival of Dale Steyn is a huge positive for RCB who have been struggling in this department. Steyn can bowl a few excellent overs at the death which would significantly increase RCB’s chances of winning matches. He will be accompanied by the dangerous Navdeep Saini whose figures don’t do justice to the way he has bowled.
Mohammad Siraj will be lucky to get yet another opportunity. Marcus Stoinis is also expected to chip in with the ball and he can be very accurate. Yuzvendra Chahal is RCB’s leading wicket-taker and has been brilliant with the ball. After a bad match against KKR, he would look to bounce back against CSK. Pawan Negi and Moeen Ali might also be called upon to roll over their arms.
