IPL 2018, Match 19: FPJ’s Dream XI for Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Daredevils


Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Delhi Daredevils (DD), who are at the bottom of the points table will come against each other at Chinnaswamy stadium. Both the teams have played four matches so far but won just one of them. RCB had a very good outing against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) but lost to Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Mumbai Indians (MI), where they conceded more than 200 runs each. RCB’s bowlers have variety and experience but have struggled to keep the runs down. They are still figuring out their best bowling combination. They now have four home games and will get an opportunity to climb the ladder. Here is the probable dream XI for RCB.

RCB: Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Quinton de Kock, Corey Anderson, Yuzvendra Chahal, Mandeep Singh, Mohammed Siraj, Umesh Yadav, Washington Sundar, Parthiv Patel, Chris Woakes

Gautam Gambhir-led side too is sailing in the similar boat. DD is coming to the concept from a four-day break since their 71-run loss to the KKR. DD has a plenty of talent in batting line-up but they haven’t performed yet. DD are yet to play a match at home and will be hoping to head home with the confidence of a win behind them. Here’s a probable dream XI for today’s match.

DD: Gautam Gambhir, Jason Roy, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Prithvi Shaw, Glenn Maxwell, Amit Mishra, Mohammed Shami, Trent Boult, Chris Morris, Rahul Tewatia
