BLR vs DC Dream11 Prediction: When Royal Challengers Bangalore will take on Delhi Capitals today, there will be a huge reward up for grabs. The winning team will go at top of the table and will strengthen their case for the play-offs even further. The match will take place at Dubai International Stadium. We will preview BLR vs DC Dream11 contest.
Royal Challengers Bangalore have had one of their best starts this year in history of the league. They have won 3 out of first 4 matches. In the last match, they beat Rajasthan Royals comfortably. Bowling first, Isuru Udana and Navdeep Saini gave them the perfect start by picking up the scalps of Steve Smith and Jos Buttler respectively. Yuzvendra Chahal did what he does usually in the middle overs with a spell of 4-0-24-3. That particular spell pegged RR back significantly and they ended up making a below par 154. In the chase, Aaron Finch went early but Devdutt Padikkal and Virat Kohli came together for a match-winning stand. Both added 99 runs as RCB made light work of the chase.
Delhi Capitals are coming off from a run-feast at Sharjah against Kolkata Knight Riders. Batting first, Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan gave them a brisk start in powerplay. Prithvi Shaw made 66 while Shreyas Iyer played one of the innings of his T20 career with 38-ball-88. Rishabh Pant applied the finishing touches with a cameo of 38 runs as Delhi Capitals posted 228 on the board. In bowling, Anrich Nortje and Harshal Patel were standout performers while Kagiso Rabada picked up a crucial wicket of Andre Russell. DC survived a late scare with a good last over from Marcus Stoinis in the end as they took the match by 18 runs.
In head-to-head comparisons, Royal Challengers Bangalore have been dominant over Delhi Capitals. RCB have come out smiling on 15 occasions while 8 matches have gone DC’s way. In recent history also, RCB are having a lead of 3-2 over DC. RCB beat DC when both teams met in UAE during the 2014 edition of IPL.
This will be second straight match in as many days at Dubai International Cricket Stadium. Same pitch from the last match between CSK & KXIP will be in use today. The surface looked good one for batting as CSK chased down the score without losing a single wicket but pitches may tend to turn in the second game. Dew is also likely to play its part in the evening today.
