RCB vs DC: Who will win?

The exciting weekends are over. And to start of the busy weekdays, we have an exciting clash lined-up between the table-toppers Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Capitals. Both teams are in tremendous form and are coming after securing thumping wins against their opponents on the last Saturday. Both teams are evenly matched and it’s tough to pick just one among these two. Purely looking at the team balance, DC who has a better all-round team is expected to have a slightly higher chance than RCB to win this match. That being said, it’s tough to bet for this match as both teams are evenly matched. Even the betting sites have placed almost equal odds for both teams. And if you still wish to bet, then place your money on Delhi Capitals.

Strength

Royal Challengers Bangalore:

  • They have a strong batting line-up on paper.
  • Presence of genuine match-winners like Kohli, Chahal, ABD, and Finch who can single-handedly win matches for their team.
  • Strong spin attack. The trio of Washington Sundar, Chahal, and Zampa seems to work well.

Delhi Capitals:

  • DC has a strong batting line-up. Top-4 packed by top Indian batsmen along with Hetmyer and Stoinis makes them a strong force.
  • With Ashwin making his return, he along with veteran Amit Mishra gives them a secure 8 overs of quality spin.
  • The Proteas duo of Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje has been impressive in this tournament so far.
  • The current batting form of their captain Shreyas Iyer is a huge boost to this Delhi side.

Weakness

Royal Challengers Bangalore:

  • RCB bowlers had been pretty ordinary at the death. If that continues, then that would affect their chances against a strong DC side.
  • Weak lower middle order.

Delhi Capitals:

  • Rabada and Nortje would need proper support from their domestic pace bowlers. DC has already tried out four options in Avesh Khan, Mohit Sharma, Ishant Sharma, and Harshal Patel. DC would need either one of them to step up to clear their only visible weakness.

Win Prediction

  • DC- 55%
  • RCB- 45%

DC VS RCB MATCH PREDICTION

It’s the best versus the best. A fight for the number one position. Both teams are placed at the top of the points table and rightly so both teams are well settled, and have found out their best eleven. And for that reason, no big changes are expected. RCB who won convincingly against the Rajasthan Royals looked perfect in all departments of the game. And with captain Virat Kohli finding back his form, they’ll be hard to stop. Their only area of concern is death bowling, if Udana and Saini can restrict the flow of runs at the death, then they can pose a great threat to the strong DC batting line-up.

DC on the other hand has the most well-settled eleven among all eight teams. They found out their best eleven right from the word go. Prithvi Shaw who got injured during the last match is doubtful for this match. He didn’t come out to field in the second innings of the last match. In that case, Ajinkya Rahane may replace him in the eleven. Shaw’s injury is not that serious, and hence the chances of him itself playing this match cannot be completely discarded.

RCB Playing 11: Devdutt Padikkal, Aaron Finch, Virat Kohli, AB De Villiers, Gurkeerat Singh, Shivam Dube, Washington Sundar, Isuru Udana, Adam Zampa, Navdeep Saini, Yuzvendra Chahal

DC Playing 11: Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw/ Ajinkya Rahane, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Shimron Hetmyer, Marcus Stoinis, Harshal Patel, Amit Mishra, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje
