Top Picks For RCB vs CSK Dream11 Match:
Top Picks – fogged
He made 99 runs off 57 deliveries in the previous match and helped CSK reach a total of 202 runs. Ruturaj won the Player of the Match award for this achievement. In the last 4 matches, Ruturaj has scored 2 half century and will probably play a key role in this match.
Faf du Plessis:
He is the leading run scorer for Royal Challengers Bangalore. He has scored 278 runs in 10 games with an average of 27.80 and a strike rate of 125.79. Du Plessis was sacked for a duck in the last game and is said to be looking to make a comeback against his former franchise.
Top Picks – Allrounders
He has made some decent contributions for RCB with the bat. In the final game, he also took 2 wickets for 26 runs in 3 overs. He will probably play a key role for RCB in this match.
He has managed to pick just 5 wickets in this edition of the tournament and has not scored more than 30 runs in an innings with the bat. He would no longer feel the added burden of the captaincy and could return to his previous form. That’s why he should be there on your fantasy team.
Top Picks – bowlers
despite failure pick a wicket in 2 matches, Wanindu Hasaranga is the leading wicket taker in the tournament for RCB. He has picked 15 wickets in 10 matches with an average of 18.20, economy of 8.02 and strike rate of 13.6.
He completely destroyed SRH’s chances of winning the final game with a four-wicket-haul. He is the second on the list of bowlers with the most wickets for CSK this season. Mukesh will again have the responsibility of choosing wickets at regular intervals in this match.
Top Picks – wicket keeper
He has been fired for single digit scores in the last 3 games. However, that does not alter the fact that Karthik is the protagonist for RCB in the middle bracket.

RCB vs CSK Risky Captaincy Picks:
He hit the number 3 position for RCB in the last game and made 52 runs from 32 deliveries. He added 99 runs for the third wicket along with former captain Virat Kohli. Patidar could again hit alone in this position and RCB would hope he could produce similar innings.
He took 1 wicket but gave up 40 runs in 4 overs. In the match against Punjab Kings, he conceded 50 runs in 4 overs. Pretorius can also play an important role for CSK with the bat, so you should have him in your fantasy. Still, he can be a risky choice to be the captain of your fantasy squad.
Player to avoid:
He made his debut for RCB in the previous game, scoring just 16 runs. You can avoid him in your fantasy squad for this match, just like in the lower middle class.
