RCB will drop Virat Kohli? – Kohli would have been dropped long ago if he had been another batsman. However, it is unlikely that Faf du Plessis or Sanjay Bangar or Mike Hesson will take such a step in the crucial match against Punjab Kings. It will not only upset the fans, it will also erode the confidence of the team. Virat Kohli will hold his place without fear of injury.

However, apart from Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis seems to have sorted out his combination. The opening may not be effective due to Kohli’s fight but he is a great soldier for No. 3 Rajat Patidar du Plessis.

Shahbaz Ahmed and Mahipal Lomar can play anchor roles while Dinesh Karthik has proved to be too hot to handle by 2.0 bowlers. In the bowling department, Mohammad Siraj and Josh Hazlewood have been great in the last two matches. Herschel Patel has been instrumental in middle-overs and death. Wanindu Hasranga has found his mojo with 21 wickets this season.

However, Faf du Plessis’ own misguided form may be a cause for concern. Although he has scored over three fifties, the RCB captain has also managed three single-digit scores. With Kohli out of form, du Plessis will be responsible for most of the runs.
