Today’s clash in the VIVO IPL 2018 features the teams struggling at the bottom half of the table who are desperate for a win in order to keep their playoff hopes alive. The defending champions’ confidence would have been slightly boosted following a win against the mighty Chennai Super Kings in their last game while the Bengaluru based franchise have faced two straight losses against KKR and CSK. Both these teams have failed to take the chances and hold their nerves during the crucial stages of the game and this has been the major cause behind their current positions in the league table.
Bengaluru pitch produced some decent turn last game and will seemingly behave the same way tonight.
5 games have been played at this venue and the average first innings score is 185.
AB de Villiers has scored 3 fifties in his 4 innings here while Virat Kohli has scored 2 in his 5 appearances.
Out of the 5 games, chasing team has won 4 games while Rajasthan Royals is the only team to defend their total at this venue, this season.
AB de Villiers (Risky for Dream11 users)
Quinton de Kock
Chris Woakes (Might make a return)
AB de Villiers (if he plays)
Krunal Pandya could also be a decent choice considering the turn he might able to extract today and his handy knocks in batting.
He has been able to pick around 2 wickets constantly, maintaining a healthy economy rate and has contributed to the batting whenever he got an opportunity .
