MI vs RCB: How to pick Dream11?

The IPL 2019 is past its halfway stage and continues to get intense.

The match number 31 would witness a big clash as three-time champions Mumbai Indians take on Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Monday.

In what would be an intense battle between two prolific skippers, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli, we present the ideal Dream XI.

In context

Quinton de Kock: The leader with the big gloves

Quinton de Kock: The leader with the big gloves

Starting with the services behind the wicket, it is rather a tough call between MI's Quinton de Kock and Bangalore's Parthiv Patel.

However, judging by the current form, Quinton de Kock is the favorite to take the role, especially after his 52-ball 81-run knock in the last match.

Further, being a better keeper than Parthiv gives him the edge.

Batsmen

Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli form a destructive batting pair

Undoubtedly it is a mouth-watering clash and what makes it even more interesting is the batting firepower.

Our batting line-up would start with Kohli and Rohit.

The two can destroy any bowling attack in the world, let alone in IPL.

Add AB de Villiers into the mixture, and it becomes even more deadly.

Further, their form of late makes the batting order even sweeter.

The all-round department of the sides is stacked.

We start with RCB's Marcus Stoinis, who was productive with the bat in the last game, while his team-mate Moeen Ali did the same with the ball.

As for Mumbai, Krunal Pandya stole the show with a heroic spell of 3/34.

He is likely to produce another effective performance at home, besides aiming for a win.

Bowlers

Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal form a world-class bowling attack

Among the bowlers, the attack starts with RCB spinner Yuzvendra Chahal, who has been in a consistent form since the start, claiming regular wickets.

He would be supported by his team-mate Navdeep Saini, who we are considering due to credit constraints.

From Mumbai, Jasprit Bumrah is a no-brainer, while his team-mate Rahul Chahar makes the list since he was economical in the last game.

Nonetheless, we feel that going by the current form, Quinton de Kock is the ideal man to take up the role.

Also, being a wicketkeeper gives him the advantage of extracting a couple of extra points.

As for the vice-captain, Kohli gets the nod owing to his knocks in the last three games.
