Things have not dished out well for Virat Kohli’s team this season and Royal Challengers Bangalore are already out of contention for a place in the Playoffs. However, a team which has Kohli at the helm is not expected to give up so easily. So, it is expected to be a road full of thorns rather than a cakewalk for Kings XI Punjab when they take on RCB at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.

RCB are a strong opposition and their batting line-up, which has not come good so far, has the ability to destroy any bowling line-up on their own day. The problem with the team has been that they are yet to find their most balanced XI. They have made changes in almost all their matches so far.
As Kings XI Punjab look to get two important points, let’s have a look at the fantasy picks from the game.
Top Fantasy Picks
Top Batsman : Virat Kohli (RCB)
The Indian captain has not been at his peak so far and that has been one of the reasons behind the dismal performance of the team. Kohli will look to keep aside his poor performances and show the world that he is raring to go for the Champions Trophy. Nothing needs to be mentioned about his capability and how he can soar your fantasy score on his day.
Top Bowler : Sandeep Sharma (KXIP)
— Kings XI Punjab (@lionsdenkxip) May 4, 2017
The Punjab paceman has been inconsistent so far but proved his worth in the last game by snaring four important wickets and shaking up the strong DD line-up. His ability to swing the ball at the start of the innings and deadly Yorkers in the death make him a perfect T20 bowler. His record against Kohli is also a boost for him and that makes him our top bowler for any fantasy team.
Top All-Rounder : Glenn Maxwell (KXIP)
The Aussie did not come out to bat against Delhi but he did his part very well with the ball. His strong bowling performance meant Delhi could not get a big score and the chase became easier for his side. His captaincy has also been inspirational so far. So, the four good overs and hitting abilities make him our top all-rounder pick.
Top Punt Player : Pawan Negi (RCB)
The all-rounder has been the lone bright spot in an otherwise dismal performance of the Bengaluru outfit this season. His performance with both bat and ball in the last two matches has proved his worth and shown why he is rated so highly. His all-round abilities make him our top punt player.
So, we have considered a mix of reputation, current form and the law of averages in deciding our fantasy picks for the game. Keep playing our own fantasy league and we hope your score soars to an all-time high!
