RCB vs DC, Dream11 Team Prediction Captain Pick: Glenn Maxwell
The Australian has been one of the reasons why Royal Challengers Bangalore have achieved so much success this far in the tournament. Glenn Maxwell has performed consistently in the RCB middle-order, scoring quick runs by hitting the big ones and oftentimes, swinging the games in his side's favour. His performance would once again be a crucial factor in his side's performance and his consistency makes him a good pick for the captain's slot.
RCB vs DC, Dream11 Team Prediction Vice-Captain Pick: Shikhar Dhawan
Shikhar Dhawan who had led the Orange Cap list, has slipped to the fourth spot and would be keen on getting higher back. The southpaw has shown glimpses of the form he had when the IPL resumed in UAE this season and his performance at the top of the order has been one of the reasons why Delhi are placed first on the points table. He had scored 39 in Delhi's last match against Chennai Super Kings and would aim to score some more runs in this match.
