Royal Challengers Bangalore batsmen were kept quiet in their last match against CSK. Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers had a good partnership but could not up the scoring rate in the last overs. Aaron Finch's form has been concerning for the team. The team management might look at Josh Philippe to replace the struggling opener in this game.  

The bowlers could not do much as well in the previous match. However, a one-off day might not concern their overall success this season. Isuru Udana could come back into the team who was replaced by Moeen Ali due to the spinning conditions in Dubai.
