IPL 2021: RCB Playing XI – Whom Kohli will choose | RCB vs MI 2021 :
Devdutt Padikkal’s positive COVID-19 test report and subsequent delay in return to the squad have put Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) captain Virat Kohli in a dilemma. Should he give another newcomer Mohammed Azharuddeen a chance or open with Kiwi batsman Finn Allen and risk losing an overseas player in the playing XI against Mumbai Indians in the IPL 2021 opener?
While Devdutt Padikkal’s absence in the first match will be a big blow, especially when he has been in sublime form. He scored 737 runs in seven innings in the Vijay Hazare Trophy for Karnataka including four centuries and three fifties. Padikkal has carried his IPL 2020 form where he scored 473 runs in 15 matches at an average of 31.53. With Virat Kohli declaring his intent to the public to open for RCB, he now has to choose a partner who could provide a solid opening.
