Starting with the openers , Devdutt would surely be a great choice for the opening position . His slot in the playing 11 is almost fixed due to his exception debut last year . Devdutt was the leading run scorer for RCB in the last season and had leaved big names such as Virat kohli and ABD behind in the race of runs. This player would surely be a part of RCB playing 11 in IPL 2021.

2. Virat Kohli

Virat Kohli has confirmed in the press conference that he would be opening for RCB for the upcoming season. This is a good signal for RCB because this would help them to build a strong and huge score which will increase their chances of win. Virat’s performance has been fabulous in the recent series against england . Also his hitting strike rate also increases when he enter the match as a opener.

3. Glenn Maxwell

Glenn maxwell is among the biggest buys made by RCB in 2021 . Maxwell’s performance is far better against spinners than pacers. This choose may look weird but it a good option for RCB because glenn maxwell has a nice strike rate against Spinners. This would also provide RCB with mohammad azuruddin as a finisher. A big thing to consider Maxwell in playing 11 is that RCB spent enormous amount of money on maxwell just because to warm the bench? Defintely not .

4. AB develliers

There is no doubt on AB’s placement on number 4 .He is a player with a very huge hitting potential and also he is considered as Mr.360. His performance is also a bit good against pacers than that of spinners and also he has the highest runs in 16-30 overs. This would provide RCB a finisher which they have been searching for. This shows that AB’s place in playing 11 is fixed.

5. Mohammad Azharuddeen

Mohammad Azharuddeen can be a good choice for number 4 because he plays as a wicket keeper batsman and he is an excellent finisher as well . He has been outstanding in the domestic cricket for Kerala. A good thing for RCB is that they can toggle between Mohammad and Maxwell. This can be really a sweet point for RCB.

6. Dan Christain

Coming to number 6 position , Dan christain would be a excellent choice for RCB because he is among the finest heavy hitters and has been serving Australia for years w. Dan will also provide RCB with an extra bowler. So this player can be a game changer for IPL and may help RCB in the entire seaon.

Coming to Kyle Jamieson he was the biggest buy made by RCB in 2021 and RCB would surely utilise this huge investment . Kyle is an outstanding bowler with a good hitting potential which will provide RCB a batting depth and a good bowling line up. RCB will surely make Kyle a part of their playing 11 due to his nice performance.

8. Washington Sundar

Moving on to Washington Sundar , his potential was hidden till now but his recent performances against england had discovered his potential and he is also a player in form. His bowling stats had been awesome this year and he can be a trusted player for RCB. His tactics also increases his value and his bowling economy is also very less. This would be an excellent choice for RCB at 8th position.

9. Yuzvendra Chahal

Yuzvendra Chahal (yuzi) doesn’t require any introduction . His performance is improving day by day and he is among the finest spinners in the world . His experience and expertise in spin surely adds more value to him. He is also a man with a sharp mind and when he is on the field then there are lots of chances for the batsman to return to the pavillion.

10. Navdeep Saini
