Royal Challengers Bangalore Playing XI
RCB are unlikely to come up with any changes in the playing XI owing to their consecutive wins in the first couple of matches of IPL 2021. They will be looking forward to their consecutive victory for the first time in IPL. Glenn Maxwell is in excellent form while Harshal Patel and Shahbaz have risen up to the occasion.
Daniel Sams has joined the lineup after recovering from COVID-19 but he is unlikely to find a place in the XI.
