New Delhi: The 14th (IPL 2021) edition of the Indian Premier League begins tomorrow, April 9. The first match of the season will be between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians. There has always been a tough contest between the two teams, so there is every possibility that this match will be exciting too. In that case, let us know what the playing eleven of RCB can be.
RCB captain Virat Kohli has already made it clear that he will start the innings in IPL 2021. In the opening match against Mumbai, he will start the innings with young batsman Devdutt Padikkal. Padikkal was infected with corona a few days ago, but he is fully fit and has joined the team before the match against Mumbai. Young batsman Mohammad Azharuddin can be dropped at number three.
Ab de Villiers at number four and Glenn Maxwell at fifth are certain to play. Both these batsmen are determined to lead the team to victory on their own. Australian all-rounder Daniel Cristian can then be dropped to number six. RCB bought them at the IPL 2021 auction for a hefty sum. Spin all-rounder, Washington Sundar's name may come up at number seven. Veteran leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal will be the lead spinner. That's where Sundar will play the role of another spinner. With this, RCB can give three fast bowlers a place in their final XI in the match against Mumbai. Kyle Jamieson, Navdeep Saini, and Mohammad Siraj Pacer's trio can be seen.
