Delhi Capitals: What would please the side the most is the form of its openers. Both Prithvi Shaw and David Warner looked in terrific touch in the side’s previous game that was against Kolkata Knight Riders. Rishabh Pant too looked in destructive mode, while Shardul Thakur duly impressed with his all-round performance. On the other hand, Kuldeep Yadav shone with the ball and Khaleel Ahmed complemented him.
Royal Challengers Bangalore: Their bowling was extremely poor in the previous game that was against Chennai Super Kings. All their bowlers went for too many runs and this time the side would want them to step up. Their top order also failed miserably in the game and it also needs improvement against DC. Shahbaz Ahmed and Dinesh Karthik, who have continued their red-hot forms, were the positives the side can take from the match, while the impressive debut (34 off 18) of Suyash Prabhudessai was the silver lining.
Delhi Capitals and Royal Challengers Bangalore have played a total of 27 matches against each other. 16 of them have been won by RCB, while DC won 10. One of the games ended in a no result.
