IPL 2021: Royal Challengers Bangalore’s predicted playing XI

10. Navdeep Saini

Navdeep Saini

Navdeep Saini hasn’t really lived up to his reputation as a fast bowler although he has impressed the cricket fraternity with lethal pace. The right-arm fast bowler is known for hitting the deck hard and also bowls good bouncers as well.

Regarded as one of the brightest fast bowling prospects in India, Saini can easily clock in excess of 140 kmph. He might not have made an impact so far but the best is yet to come for him. RCB roped in the fast bowler for INR 3 crore at the 2018 player auction.

The 28-year-old bowler has played 22 games in the Indian Premier League wherein he bagged 17 wickets to his name at an economy rate of 8.28. He played 13 games for RCB in the last season where he took as many as 6 wickets.
