It was a thrilling encounter between Mumbai Indians and Kings XI Punjab at Wankhede last night. MI kept their hopes of qualifying for the play-offs alive with a three-run win over KXIP, thanks to a splendid spell of fast bowling from Bumrah who conceded only 15 runs in his 4 overs, while picking up 3 wickets.

MI have to win the last game against DD to go through unless RCB rake up huge wins in their remaining matches. The efforts of Rahul (94) and Tye (4-16) went in vain once again as KXIP couldn’t cross the line yesterday. They need other results to go their way to qualify for the play-offs now. They need a win against CSK in the last match, RCB to lose to SRH but win against RR, and MI to lose to DD, to qualify for the play-offs.

RCB take on SRH at Bangalore today knowing that they need to win both their games by a huge margin to qualify without bothering about other results. They can still qualify with two wins in case MI loses to DD. SRH are sure to finish in the top two and might think about giving the benchwarmers a chance to play. RCB are likely to continue with the same team that thrashed KXIP in the last game.

Here’s our suggestion for the playing XI in today’s games (5 core players who are a must have for today’s game are marked as “CP”).

Today’s Best Eleven for RCB Vs SRH

1.     Shikhar Dhawan - CP

2.     Kane Williamson - CP

3.     Virat Kohli - CP

4.     AB De Villiers - CP


5.     Mandeep Singh

6.     Parthiv Patel

7.     Shakib Al Hasan

8.     Rashid Khan

9.     Umesh Yadav - CP

10.  YS Chahal

11.  Sandeep Sharma

Alternate Options

There are alternate options for the players who have not been listed under the Core players in the above eleven. You can consider these players in your team in place of those who are not core players.

1.     Moeen Ali

2.     Manish Pandey

3.     Bhuvaneshwar Kumar

4.     Tim Southee

5.     Colin De Grandhomme

Captain Options

1.    Kane Williamson – A very safe pick as captain, he has been the highest run-getter for SRH and has been incredibly consistent with his performances. He will again make a big score if he sees off the threat of Umesh Yadav

2.     AB De Villiers – None of the frontline bowlers of SRH have a great record against ABD. He is likely to bat at 3 and will have the opportunity to play a long innings today.
