DC vs RCB IPL : Delhi Capitals will take on Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 22nd match of Indian Premier League 2021 in Ahmedabad on Tuesday, 27 April. Delhi Capitals as well as Royal Challengers Bangalore have four wins from five matches each.
Delhi Capitals have had a good start of their campaign and have won three back to back matches and now will look to extend their winning streak further. Their openers Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw are in top form, Steve Smith too has played two decent knocks at number 3 while captain Rishabh Pant too has looked in good touch and finisher Hetmyer and Stoinis haven’t got enough time to spend on crease but they too will be eager to show their talent. In the bowling the return of Axar Patel has boosted their attack and in pace department Avesh Khan has been excellent so far and team will hope Kagiso Rabada too will come back in his old rhythm.
On the other side, Royal Challengers Bangalore after four back to back wins suffered a massive 69 runs loss at the hands of Chennai Super Kings in the last match and they will look to bounce back. They have played good cricket so far but need to strengthen their batting attack as their number 3 batsman isn’t confirmed yet as Sundar, Patidar and Shahbaz all have batted there and after AB de Villiers they don’t have any recognized batter and they really need a good batting depth else against good bowling attacks they will be in big problem and in bowling their spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Washington Sundar need to do better and in pace Harshal Patel, Mohammad Siraj and Kyle Jamieson have been good so far.
