RCB eye right balance

With Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, Sarfaraz Khan and AB de Villiers out for various duration of the league, RCB will have the envious task of lining up a balanced side for their opening game against champions Sunrisers Hyderabad here on Wednesday.

In the absence of top specialist batsmen, RCB will likely field all their all-rounders besides skipper Shane Watson. Medium pace all-rounder Stuart Binny and left-arm spinning all-rounder Pawan Negi are probable starters for the opening tie while Mandeep Singh and Kedar Jadhav will be expected to shoulder more responsibility in batting.

RCB likely 11: Shane Watson (capt), Chris Gayle, Mandeep Singh, Kedar Jadhav, Sachin Baby, N Jagadeesan (wk), Stuart Binny, Pawan Negi, Tymal Mills, Samuel Badree, S Arvind.
