Royal Challengers Bangalore

Gameplan: Possibly one of the most stable teams in the tournament at the moment the Royal Challengers Bangalore has showcased billions in each of the games they’ve played so far. All the departments have contributed equally to their incredible success until now.

The only concern for the side is the poor form that their skipper Virat Kohli currently is in.

With a fantastic knock in the previous game captain, Faf Du Plessis once again proved to be handy for his side. His wonderful 96 run innings helped his side post a good enough total vs Lucknow.
