RCB’s acting captain Shane Watson had said in a funny tone after the victory against Delhi that Virat and D’Villiers will play in the next match, but no confirmation has been reached yet. It was said from the BCCI that Virat’s fitness will be assessed in the second week of April, as it has not yet been done. Because of this, he did not even reach Indore with the team .
AB de Villiers was not able to play in the first two games due to back pain, and in the third match, he is unlikely to play. Since RCB has won one of the two matches, this team is unlikely to take any risk by taking Virat or De Villiers out. RCB had won the last match, due to which there is no possibility of any change in the playing XI. The team will hope to have a strong performance from opener Chris Gayle in this match.
