Royal Challengers Bangalore:
Looking at their campaign so far, and the poor form of most of the batsmen, it’s only fair to say RCB do not know which team to pick, and it may even boil down to a lottery. Travis Head has failed to impress, Mandeep Singh, Vishnu Vinod, Sachin Baby and Stuart Binny haven’t done much, Kedar Jadhav hasn’t lived up to his reputation while de Villiers and Gayle too have cut a sorry figure apart from a couple of half-centuries. Shane Watson and Gayle are a couple of options if RCB plan to leave out Head for the MI fixture.
Probable XI: Virat Kohli (c), Chris Gayle/Shane Watson, AB de Villiers, Kedar Jadhav (wk), Sachin Baby, Stuart Binny, Pawan Negi, Samuel B
