RCB vs MI Dream11 Team predictions
Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will take on Mumbai Indians (MI) tonight in a crucial match of the Indian Premier League IPL 2020. RCB ended at the bottom of IPL 2019 while Mumbai Indians won the Indian Premier League (IPL) last year.
The match is scheduled at 7 30 pm IST in the Dubai International cricket stadium which has enough for the batsmen as well as for the bowlers. With long boundaries and the ball not coming so easily in the later part of the innings, the team will look to defend instead of chasing.

Quinton De Kock, Rohit Sharma, AB de Villiers, Yuzvendra Chahal, Shivam Dubey, Suryakumar Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Aaron Finch, Hardik Pandya, James Pattinson, Virat Kohli
(1 WK - 5 Bat -2 ALL - 3 Bowl)
Top 4 captains on Dream11:
Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Quinton de Kock and AB De Villiers
Top 4 Vice-Captains on Dream11:
AB De Villiers, Quinton de Kock, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli
We believe that 1 WK, 4 Batsmen, 2 All Rounders, 4 Bowler strategy will be appropriate for this ground and the talent available. The next best strategy will be 1 WK, 5 Batsmen, 1 All Rounder and 4 Bowlers. Last strategy will be 1 WK, 5 Batsmen, 2 All Rounders and 3 Bowlers.
MI vs RCB Dream11 Team predictions: Wicket Keeper
Quinton de Kock is an obvious choice of WK for this game. With Josh Phillippe underperforming, Parthiv Patel could get an opportunity but with little data available, including Parthiv Patel would be like praying for a lot of luck.
It is advisable to go with only one wicket keeper for this game.
RCB vs MI Dream11 Team predictions: Batsmen
Rohit Sharma and AB De Villiers are obvious choices with Devdutt Padikkal, Suryakumar Yadav and Saurabh Tiwary making up the top 5 batsmen
That leaves us with two stars Virat Kohli and Aaron Finch. Both of them are capable of massive scores but seem to be struggling a bit. This will be the most difficult decision for a Dream11 player. Should they go with 3-4 batsmen from the top 5 batsmen or include both Aaron Finch and Virat Kohli.
The best solution would be to Include Rohit and AB De Villiers, One/Two players between Padikkal, Yadav and Tiwary and one player between Finch and Kohli.
We would recommend 4 batsman strategy for this game.
RCB vs MI Dream11 Team predictions: All-rounders
Shivam Dubey has been consistently high in two games while Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard and Krunal Pandya have performed at about an average level. These players cannot be written off.
With pacers struggling, Moeen Ali will be a handy No.7 for the team who gave 40.3 points per game in 2019. Chris Morris has a side strain and may not be available tomorrow.
All Rounders have struggled in Dubai with some exceptions, not advisable to go with more than 2 All rounders in your dream11 team
MI vs RCB Dream11 Team predictions: Bowlers
Apart from Yuzvendra Chahal, Rahul Chahar and Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult and James Pattinson have been exceptional with the ball. They haven’t given away runs and have taken key wickets. Boult earned 62 points last game whereas Pattinson earned 54 points. Together they average 105.5 Dream11 points in 1st two matches of IPL 2020.
Navdeep Saini, Umesh Yadav and Dale Steyn are not recommended for this match.
Given that Bowlers are scoring well in Dubai, 4 Bowlers can also be considered for your Dream11 Team.
