Probable RCB Playing XI for IPL 2020

This article puts out the possible and strongest starting eleven of RCB for this IPL 2020, UAE edition.

You can read the starting XI for other teams, here in this section.

1. Devdutt Padikkal

The exciting manner in which Devdutt Padikkal performed in the previous domestic season makes his name more sensational in RCB. The Kerala born Karnataka batter has all the sound abilities to ignite the powerplay overs and even to continue till the end. It is an excellent opportunity for the youngster to prove to the Indian skipper who will travel so close with him for the next two months. If it goes well, Padikkal will be in a different space soon.

2. Aaron Finch

Aaron Finch is the one who could find the rope effortlessly with his dasher-type batting. First up, he is a frothing element. Also, the hulky Aussie opener is a great run accumulator with his exceptional stroke-making standard. Good player of spin and at the same time facing fast bowlers in the traditionally sluggish wickets of UAE would be a cake-walk for this Aussie batter. Therefore his form is crucial for the red team to out-think the competition of champs.

3. Virat Kohli

The skipper of the bold red team is a synergy of mass and class. Virat Kohli can do wonders down in the middle, especially in the slot he usually walks in. He loves pressure, and that is what the one drop position gives him often. So, apart from having him as the skipper, RCB is having the world’s best No.3 of this format, and in return, RCB has done justice by providing a good bowling line-up for this UAE edition.

4. Ab de Villiers

Being a No. 4, Ab De Villiers has put his team in the box seat to haul in targets most of the time. According to this data, the 360-degree batter has been the most impactful player of IPL with the bat, and he is proving it for every seven games of IPL. This time, the wicket-keeper role will fetch him a clear picture of the featherbed tracks, making us witness even more consistency from him with the bat.

5. Moeen Ali

Moeen Ali is now consigned with the responsibility of RCB’s engine room. The aggressive left-handed batter, along with his quicker off-spins, adds more weightage to the bench. Especially his nature of snagging key scalps of opponents might give Virat a booster. Meanwhile, in batting, groomed shot-making and approach makes the English team vice-captain even more special for RCB.

6. Shivam Dube

The Indian all-rounder has a massive job of finisher role for the team in red. Batting wise, he is a hard hitter who is only struggling to pick the length and line fluently at the international level. But the term all-rounder gives him more value; that’s what makes Virat turn his head towards Dube. Therefore, to make it worthy, Dube needs to improve his bowling speed to beat the batters.

7. Chris Morris

RCB needs constant churn from the tall Proteas all-rounder. His hacking potentiality during the penultimate overs with the bat might take RCB to amass the grander totals. Nothing can be much better for the red team in bowling if hulky Morris gets on a roll and gets all the four overs.

8. Washington Sundar

The novelty in his off-spin makes him the profound option. He can bowl effectively with the new ball with only two fielders outside and has been walking on this tightrope for a long time. His sound-technique in batting needs to be proved in the bigger stages. So this IPL could be a platform for him to start a new journey, and hopefully, it could snowball in the future.

9. Navdeep Saini

Navdeep Saini’s hoicking efforts in blue have imbued Virat Kohli a lot. The 27-year-old speed penchant is a perfect executor of all the required varieties for this fastest cricket format. Dream11 IPL is an excellent time for the Indian fast bowler to exhibit his skills to the cricket world. A unique thing to mention is his pinch-hitting, which we all witnessed against New Zealand in their home.

10. Umesh Yadav

Umesh Yadav has upped his game a lot with his Indian side’s presence for a long time. Hits the deck hard and, in the meanwhile, gets the nip of the ball frequently. His high octane entertainment with the new ball and banging short balls during the death overs are his key elements. With his terrific speed, he can even get the bounce from the belter pitches of UAE.

11. Yuzvendra Chahal

You cannot ask for a brave leg spinner who can go on with his loopy leg breaks, albeit the batters can slog as much as possible. Has a decent googly delivery along with the most effective flipper—a sure bet on the UAE conditions. As a blessing in disguise for RCB, the Haryana born wristy has the Aussie Adam Zampa as his competitor for this time, this pushes Yuzi to be more consistent with his wicket-taking tactics.
