IPL 2021: 5 Fantasy Picks for RCB vs MI clash in UAE, Playing11 and Live Streaming – September 26: Searching for their first win in the UAE-leg of the tournament, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians will lock horns in the second game of Sunday’s doubleheader in Dubai. Both teams have faced huge defeats in both their games played so far in the second phase of the tournament. While Virat Kohli-led side is still sitting at the third spot, Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai Indians have slipped to the sixth position in the league standings.
Royal Challengers Bangalore need three wins out to five remaining encounters to secure a spot in the IPL 2021 playoffs. They haven’t been at their best in both the games against Kolkata Knight Riders and Chennai Super Kings and would be aiming to get their campaign back on track.
Mumbai Indians, on the other hand, faced a disappointing 20 runs defeat against Chennai Super Kings in the opening future and were completely outplayed by Kolkata Knight Riders in their second outing. They now need to win four out of their five remaining games to advance into the playoffs.
Here, we will look at key players who can be game-changer for their respective sides in the 39th match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians at Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai
Five key players for IPL 2021: RCB vs MI 39th Match –
Virat Kohli – RCB Skipper Virat Kohli is a must-have pick in your fantasy team. While he is the all-time leading run-scorer in the league with 6081 runs in 192 innings, Kohli is the leading run-scorer for his side in the ongoing season so far. In 9 innings, he has scored 256 runs at an average of 32.00 and a strike rate of 123.07. Kohli slammed a fifty against Chennai Super Kings in the previous outing and will be aiming to continue the momentum.
Rohit Sharma – Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma missed the opening game against Chennai Super Kings on Sunday but scored 30 off 33 against Kolkata Knight Riders on Thursday. Hitman is the leading run-scorer for Mumbai Indians in the ongoing season, scoring 283 runs in 8 innings at an average of 35.38, including a fifty in the IPL phase 1. He looked in good touch against Kolkata Knight Riders and is likely to continue his fine form.
AB de Villiers – RCB’s batting mainstay Ab de Villiers hasn’t got off to a good start in the two games so far. However, he still averages 36.50 in the ongoing season and has scored 219 runs in 9 innings at a strike rate of 158.69. He is a must-have pick in your fantasy team from RCB.
Surya Kumar Yadav – Surya Kumar Yadav is one of the consistent performers for Mumbai Indians. Mumbai’s middle-order batsman has scored 400+ runs in each of the last three seasons (2018-2020). He hasn’t been at his best so far in the ongoing season and has scored 181 runs in 9 innings so far.
Harshal Patel – Purple Cap holder in the ongoing season, Harshal Patel has picked up 19 wickets in 9 innings. He picked up two wickets against Chennai Super Kings in the previous game and will be looking to add more wickets to his tally.
