We go for veteran Chris Gayle and Parthiv Patel as the openers of this Dream11 team.

Gayle (vice-captain) has been in splendid touch with the bat.

Virat Kohli comes in next and he gets the captaincy nod.

The 30-year-old will be crucial for RCB's advancements.

The middle order sees Mayank Agarwal and David Miller lend support.

A lot will depend on the two players.

Ali, Ashwin are the two all-rounders

Moeen Ali is set to play his final match before leaving for the ODIs against Pakistan. The Englishman will be a vital asset for RCB at the death with his impressive cameos. R Ashwin lends support as the second all-rounder of this side.
