RCB to face MI in semifinal

MI and RCB being rank 1 and 4 resp. in the points table, will be playing the 1st semifinal of IPL-3. The match is held on 21st April and the venue has been shifted from Bangalore to Navi Mumbai due to the blast that took place yesterday.
On the other hand, CSK will be facing either DD/DC (winner of today's match) in the 2nd semifinal.

My playing 11 for RCB will be:
1. Rahul Dravid
2. Manish Pandey /Balachandra Akhil
3. Jacques Kallis (if RD gets out early)
4. Kevin Pietersen
5. Robin Uthappa
6. Virat Kohli
7. Ross Taylor/ Van der Merwe
8. Anil Kumble
9. Dale Steyn
10. Vinay Kumar
11. Pravin Kumar/Pankaj Singh/Abhimanyu Mithun

  1. kshitij,
    I like the batting order; opening with RD & Pandey makes sense; But I bat Ross Taylor at #3 or #4 so that he gets his eye in. Mithun in place of Pankaj Singh is a decent choice; also if the pitch takes spin I would play Appanna
