Fantasy League Picks
Kieron Pollard is proficient with bat as well as the ball. He has scored 212 runs in 11 matches at a strike rate of 198. With that strike rate, he can score some quick and big runs for Mumbai Indians.
Captain and Vice-Captain

Quinton de Kock has been one of the most consistent batsman for Mumbai Indians. In Mumbai's last 5 games, he has scored 3 half-centuries and one unbeaten score of 46.
AB de Villiers is one of the main reasons why RCB is in the top 3 in the points table this season. He has consistently maintained a strike of more than 150 in almost every season of IPL.
Aaron Finch has been struggling to score in this season of the IPL. Usually seen scoring big runs, he only has one half-centur to his name this season.
Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult are the two most dangerous bowlers for any opposition to face. Yuzvendra Chahal is the highest wicket-taker for RCB and has been impressive this season as well.
