DC vs RCB – IPL – Team Previews
Delhi Capitals currently sit at the bottom of the table in tenth place, making it seem like their chances of making the playoffs are slim. However, they come into this match with momentum after an unexpected victory over the league leaders Gujarat.
Inconsistency in their batting has been a major issue for the team, and they will rely heavily on openers David Warner and Philip Salt to set the tone for the game. Delhi struggled in the batting Powerplay during their previous match against Gujarat, losing five wickets for just 23 runs in five overs. The middle order has also failed to produce runs, and the team will be counting on Manish Pandey and Sarfaraz Khan to step up.
Although Salt has only scored well in one of his recent innings, the Capitals plan to keep him at the top of the order and use Khaleel as their Impact Player if they bowl first. With Nortje out, Lungi Ngidi may make his first appearance of the season.
Royal Challengers Bangalore
The IPL playoffs are heating up, and Royal Challengers Bangalore are in a good position to push for a knockout spot as they currently sit fifth in the table. In their last match, they secured a nail-biting victory over Lucknow, but their bowlers did a fantastic job.
As they face the Delhi Capitals, RCB will rely heavily on their frontline batters to mask the deficiencies in their bowling attack. The team’s biggest weakness has been their middle-order players, and the skipper hopes for better performances from them. The contest between Bangalore’s batters and the Capitals’ bowlers could decide the outcome of the match.
Kedar Jadhav attended the optional nets two days out from the game and could make his comeback for RCB in Delhi. Depending on the surface conditions, RCB may bring in Harshal Patel as an Impact Player.
