Fantasy Cricket Tips – RCB vs KXIP
- Parthiv Patel would be a perfect fit as a wicket-keeper batsman for the Dream11 team. Having scored a 37-ball 53 in the previous game against CSK, the southpaw would be hoping to emulate a similar show in the game against KXIP.
- Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers are must inclusions for their scintillating exhibitions in this edition of IPL. Alongside them, one could go in with Chris Gayle for his 37-ball 69 in the previous contest versus the Delhi Capitals. Sarfaraz Khan could prove to be a handy option for KXIP when batting down the middle.
- Both Moeen Ali and Ravichandran Ashwin could be roped in for the all-rounder’s category. The duo have delivered economical performances in the games played so far and could be strongly anticipated to put up a sparkling show in the coming feud at Bangalore.
- Dale Steyn and Navdeep Saini’s match-winning figures of 2/29 and 1/24 respectively was the reason RCB managed to outshine the likes of Dhoni & Co in the previous game at Bangalore. Yuzendra Chahal remains a definite pick for his stupendous spin prowess with either one of Murugan Ashwin or Navdeep Saini making it to the Dream11 team.
