Siraj, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Parthiv Patel, Navdeep Saini, Tim Southee, Umesh Yadav, Washington Sundar, Pawan Negi, Yuzvendra Chahal, Marcus Stoinis, Shivam Dube, Prayas Ray Barman, Shimron Hetmyer, Akshdeep Nath, Himmat Singh, Milind Kumar, Heinrich Klaasen, Gurkeerat Singh Mann and Devdutt Padikkal.

  • RCB has lost their all the matches till now.  Kohli and their fans badly need one win in this IPL .
  • N Coulter Nile is ruled out of whole IPL.
  • Dale Steyn will join RCB after this match so he will miss this match. He is added into the squad in place of injured Nathan Coulter Nile.
  • They can replace Akshdeep Nath and T Southee by Umesh Yadav and S Hetmyer/C De Grandhomme respectively.
  • Parthiv Patel and Virat Kohli are expected to open the inning for RCB. Parthiv Patel has performed consistently for the team, whereas Kohli is not looking as fluent as he should be.Kohli will again hold the key for RCB in batting department.
  • Parthiv has scored 1 half century till now and s cored consistently in 30s while Kohli scored 1 half centuy and 2 innings in 40s till now.
  • AB Deviliers will bat next, he will be key for RCB in middle overs ,whole RCB batting moves around only two batsman Kohli and Deviliers if they fail then others will find it difficult to play. Devilliers is 360 degree player and one of the best batsman of modern era but he is lacking some consistency in this IPL which is hurting RCB a lot.Devilliers’s record against spinners is very bad in this IPL and opposition will surely want to take advantage of it.
  •  M Stoinis is expected to bat next.He is a good hitter of the ball, he can score with good strike rate.
  • Moeen Ali is expected to bat next,he bats in atacking manner.. In previous match he  helped his team to put the decent total on the board.
  • Akshadeep Nath(risky) and T Southee(slight risky) are also decent hitter of ball.T Southee had played many cameos with Newzealand team.
  • Pawan Negi can play attacking shots also.
  • Yuzvendra Chahal will lead the spin attack along with Moeen Ali and P Negi. Yuzvendra Chahal is a leg spinner and wicket taking bowler of this format.Chahal took 4 wickets in 2nd match while Pawan Negi has impressed every one with his performance till now.Chahal has taken 9 wickets till now.
  •  Navdeep Saini and  MD Siraj are expected to lead the pace attack of the team while M Stoinis and T Southee/Umesh Yadav will assist them.Recent form of T Southee is not that much good . Navdeep Saini has impressed every one with his pace and bounce and he seems to be only positive for RCB in this season.
  • Siraj is also leaking runs from one end which has hurt RCB a lot in this season.
