Rohit Sharma (10.5 credits)
By playing a match-winning innings of 80 in the second match against Kolkata Knight Riders, Rohit Sharma made up for his failure in the first game. He was able to hit his signature pull strokes with ease and cleanly hit the ball. Rohit Sharma has traditionally performed well against Royal Challengers Bangalore, particularly in the last two years. We might expect a lot of runs from Rohit’s bat with the middling bowling line up of Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rohit’s form.
Virat Kohli (10.5 credits)
Yes, in this IPL, Virat Kohli has looked out of sorts. He does not have an extraordinary record against Mumbai Indians either. To back up this selection, there is no data as such. But Virat Kohli is a player who always bounced back after any failure.
He is set to come back much more determined and with a strategy to score runs, after the strong criticism of him after the last match. When he has been down and out, Kohli has always been the most dangerous and it is a hunch that he will show his power in this game against Mumbai Indians.
AB de Villiers (10 credits)
Ab de Villiers was one of the few players of Royal Challengers Bangalore who found form with the bat. He scored a masterful half century against Sunrisers Hyderabad and even as wickets were falling around him in the game against Kings XI Punjab, he ended up scoring 28 out of 18 balls. He has performed well against Mumbai Indians and has 656 runs at a strike rate of 143 against them. After falling short in the last match, he will be looking to put in a commanding performance.
