DC vs RCB Dream 11 Team
Shikhar Dhawan and Rishabh Pant were the architects of DC’s last win where they chased down 200+ total. Kagiso Rabada has been the best bowler in the tournament by miles. Shreyas too has been excellent.
Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers continue to produce magic for RCB. Marcus Stonis, Yuzvendra Chahal and Navdeep Saini are among others who can be backed.
Grand League Team
You can punt on Prithvi Shaw and Parthiv Patel. If favourites fail and they deliver kind of scenario.
