Dream11 Captain - L. Livingstone
Dream11 Vice Captain - W. Hasaranga
Dhawan is an experienced IPL batter and he was in great form last season, scoring 587 runs. He is the top picked batter from the Kings line-up. In 192 IPL matches, Dhawan has scored 5784 runs at an impressive average of 34.84.
The newly appointed RCB skipper, Faf du Plessis scored 633 runs in the 2021 season and he was just 2 runs behind the orange cap winner Ruturaj Gaikwad. Plessis is expected to perform the same way again in this season as well. With more than 80% selection so far, he is the top pick batsman.
We are going with Liam Livingstone as the dream 11 captain for this match as we wanted to play with all rounders as captain and vice captain. Livingstone has been impressive in the T20 leagues recently. Livingstone has featured in 9 IPL matches so far, scoring 113 runs.
Hasaranga is a quality all rounder of the format but he is yet to make his mark in the IPL. He has played only 2 matches so far in IPL and yet to pick his first wicket. We are backing him as a top pick player for his good form lately.
Harshal Patel emerged as the Purple Cap winner in the 2021 season, picking 32 wickets in 15 matches at an impressive average of 14.34. He was among the retained players list in RCB. He is currently the top picked bowler for this match.
Arshdeep Singh had an amazing season in IPL 2021. He picked 18 wickets at an average of 19.00. In a total of 23 IPL matches, Arshdeep Singh picked 30 wickets. He was in the retained players list in the Punjab Kings team and over the time has become an important pacer in the Kings bowling line-up.
