DC vs RCB Risky Captaincy Picks:
Glenn Maxwell will be a good option as he is expected to bowl a few overs and he also looked very good during his short stay at the bat in the previous match. Take a point on him for this match.
Player to avoid:
Sarfaraz Khan was demoted down in the previous game after a big opening partnership. Hence his fantasy value will depend on whether he can get enough balls so it is better to look at other options and avoid him for this match.
