RCB vs SRH Dream 11 Prediction: Best Dream11 team for today’s RCB vs SRH match | IPL News as TSR helps you form the best Dream 11 team
While RCB haven’t done themselves a lot of favours this season, they could do one for KXIP, KKR and RR on Saturday by beating SRH by a massive margin, something that could well be a possibility, if both Kohli and de Villiers switch on that their ‘crazy mode’.
But for that to happen, RCB will need to bat first, score something in excess of 225, and get SRH dismissed for something less than 100. Only then will KKR have a realistic chance of qualifying for the playoffs even if they lose to MI on Sunday evening.
Virat Kohli and co. would be wanting to give their fans a good enough send off, after rallying behind the team religiously despite the poor results. SRH on the other hand would be hoping that Manish Pandey and co. can help them get over the line and almost secure that 4th playoff spot.

Let’s get to business now.(Update: Add Hetmyer to the below mentioned team)
RCB vs SRH Dream 11 Prediction
Wicketkeeper for RCB vs SRH Dream 11
Parthiv Patel will be my wicketkeeping choice for this game, with Saha being the only competitor. While Saha batted decently well in the last game, Parthiv has done enough all season long to warrant a place ahead of Saha.
Bowlers for RCB vs SRH Dream 11
I don’t see a lot of point in investing heavily in bowlers when they play at the Chinnaswamy and hence I won’t be getting in Rashid Khan or Chahal. Instead, I save up on the credits and get in a half-decent batsman, as that small Bangalore ground isn’t going to do justice to the skills of the bowlers.
Navdeep Saini would be the first bowler that I get in for this game, as he has figured out a formula to keep the batsmen quite in Bangalore and also manages to pick up a few wickets. Get him in.
Khaleel Ahmed has been picking up 3 wicket hauls for fun this season. After missing out on the first half, he has blended beautifully into that SRH setup, providing them with that left-arm dimension as well. He has picked up 14 wickets in 7 games, a wicket to matches ratio that any bowler in the IPL would love to have. Get him in at all costs.
For the final bowling pick, I would get in Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who despite being off colour this season, has managed to keep his role of bowling 2 overs at the death intact. As those 2 overs give him ample opportunity to fetch some Dream 11 points, I get him in for sure. Sandeep Sharma too has been brilliant, but on most occasions, he gets to bowl only 1 overs at the death and hence Bhuvi gets the nod.
All-Rounders for RCB vs SRH Dream 11
Vijay Shankar would be my first all-rounder that I pick for this game. While he hasn’t done much to justify his selection, the fact that he bats in the top 5 and can use the long handle to good effect at the death in Bangalore, makes me tilt a little towards his side, than investing in the bowlers.
Mohammad Nabi has been promoted up the order by the SRH management in the last few games, as he can bludgeon the ball to all parts of the ground. Also, he gets to bowl his full quota of 4 overs. His dual role is too much to overlook. Get him in for sure.
Batsmen for RCB vs SRH Dream 11
Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers walk into my side for every game, especially when they play together at the Chinnaswamy, as a flat deck is only going to aid their super human skills.
Manish Pandey has single handedly taken care of that SRH batting unit ever since David Warner left for Australia. He almost won the game on his own for SRH against MI and has been in fine form. On a ground that he cherishes, Manish Pandey could really go berserk on Saturday, especially considering that the RCB bowling unit is not a very elite one.
For my final batting pick, I am going to go in with Martin Guptill. Having played just one game this season, Guptill really doesn’t deserve a place depending on what he has done, but so do none of the other remaining batsmen. One could argue that Williamson is a safer bet, but coming in at 4, Williamson’s core skills are neutralised a bit. Whereas, opening the batting, Guptill’s core skills are amplified. Thus, he gets the nod, largely because of his batting position.
For the final pick, I would be going in with Klassen, who could tee off on that flat deck too. Now, if you want to be a little safe with the pick, you could go in with Sandeep Sharma too
Update number 2: Klaasen is not playing and with Stoinis too going back home, get in Shimron Hetmyer.
Update: Add Hetmyer to the above team
Captain: Virat Kohli(if RCB bat second)/AB de Villiers(if RCB bat first)
Vice-Captain: Manish Pandey
