RR vs RCB: How to pick the winning Dream11?

The IPL 2019 has become even more exciting this week.

In match number 14, former champions Rajasthan Royals lock horns with Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur on Tuesday.

Both the teams are in search for their opening win. And here, let us analyze the winning Dream XI for this encounter.

Wicket-keeper

Jos Buttler should be the man behind the stumps

Jos Buttler should be the man behind the stumps

Starting with the wicket-keeping department, Jos Buttler is the obvious choice.

He has sound skills behind the stumps. Importantly, he has been in lethal form with the bat.

Even though he failed to fire in the last game against Chennai Super Kings, scoring just six, he is likely to come up with the goods tonight.

This, being a home tie, would further help Buttler.

Batsmen

Steve Smith, Shimron Hetmyer, Virat Kohli form dream team

The batting order has to start with Rajasthan's Steve Smith, who was decent in the last match, scoring 28. He is slowly gaining ground.

He would be accompanied by Sanju Samson, who scored the first century of IPL 12.

From RCB, Virat Kohli makes the list for his batting skills, although he is yet to fire.

He would be supported by team-mate Shimron Hetmyer.

All-rounders

Krishnappa Gowtham and Colin de Grandhomme have reliable all-round abilities

Krishnappa Gowtham and Colin de Grandhomme have reliable all-round abilities

In what may seem like a surprise, we believe that Krishnappa Gowtham makes an ideal all-rounder for this tie.

While he failed to perform in each department in the last match, he can come up a performance against RCB, especially since he knows the conditions well.

Meanwhile, Colin de Grandhomme was the top scorer for RCB against Sunrisers Hyderabad, therefore sealing the spot.

Bowlers

Jofra Archer, Yuzvendra Chahal can give you points

Talking about the bowlers, pacer Jofra Archer has been in a good form of late and is a no-brainer in this list.

Accompanying him would be his team-mate Dhawal Kulkarni, who can chip in with a couple of wickets.

From the other team, leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal makes the list, who has been lethal till now.

Mohammed Siraj is the last name in this XI.

Leadership

Buttler the leader, Kohli the vice-captain

Rajasthan's Jos Buttler gets our nod to be the captain of this fantasy team.

Buttler, being an opener, can extract maximum points if he gets going.

Further, his wicket-keeping skills are sure to earn him good points as well.

For vice-captain, Kohli fits the bill. Although he is yet to play a big innings, he can never be ruled out.
