Player to Watch Out : Shreyas Iyer

The playing conditions at Dubai International Cricket Stadium generally has something for both batsmen and bowlers. The pacers get assist with the new ball and in case batsmen could go through the initial stage, they can go for big shots in in last 10 overs or so.

With Virat Kohli showing his class in previous match, RCB batting is something to watch out for in today's match. The openers have done good job especially young Devdutt Padikkal. With the class of Kohli and de Villiers to follow, this is a solid top order. Bowling has been there and there about for Bangalore but death bowling can still cause trouble for the team. Chahal has been brilliant so far with 8 wickets for RCB.

Skipper Shreyas Iyer has been leading the side from the front as he smashed 38 ball 88 against Kolkata in last match. Prithvi Shaw has played well at the top of order. Likes of Shikhar Dhawan and Rishabh have got 20s and 30s cameos but not big innings so far. Bowling also looks solid with the likes of Kagiso Rabada who already has 8 wickets to his name this season.
