After going through the performance of the players, the dream 11 would be ideal to have 1 WK, 4 Batsman, 2 All-rounders and 4 Bowlers.
RCB vs CSK Dream11 team predictions: Wicket-keeper
AB de Villiers will be the first choice wicket-keeper in this eleven who has single-handedly won games for the team. He has also done a great job by donning the gloves for the team that has allowed them to bring an extra batsman or a bowler into the eleven.
MS Dhoni hasn’t been at his best in terms of his wicket keeping and batting skills. This has indirectly affected the team’s performance this season. Even though he has batted well on a few occasions, he hasn’t been able to finish games for the team.
Josh Phillippe who played as the keeper for the second game has provided 6.50 fantasy points per game so far whereas N Jagadeeshan who is unlikely to wear gloves played a decent innings against RCB but has managed just 21.50 points per game so far.
Parthiv Patel is yet to play in IPL 2020 season.

Devdutt Padikkal has been a very good find for RCB this season who has given excellent starts to the team. He has managed to give 49 fantasy points per game so far.

Barring that one innings against KXIP, Shane Watson has not been himself in this edition without a match winning knock for the side.
Ambati Rayudu has tried his best to take his team towards victory but hasn’t succeeded. The No.3 batsman has so far gathered 39.63 fantasy points per game.
For RCB, Aaron Finch will have to find his form and hasn’t striked as expected.

Sam Curran has been CSK’s lone consistent performer for the team who has done everything the team has asked for. He has been exceptional with the bat as well as with the bat.

Washington Sundar has done everything the captain has asked for. He has taken wickets in the powerplay and in the middle overs thereby breaking opposition’s back bone. He has delivered 29.60 dream 11 points on an average.
