Bengaluru, April 07, Sunday at 04:00 PM IST
The first fixture of Sunday’s doubleheader will be played between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Capitals at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in the evening. The hosts are winless so far in the tournament while Delhi Capitals are looking to have lost the momentum after a fantastic start. The match will start at 04:00 PM IST.
The bowling has been the weakest part for Royal Challengers Bangalore as it was quite evident in the last game after which the side slid to their fifth defeat on the trot. After posting 205 runs on the board, RCB was on driving seat and were in the game till 16th over of KKR’s innings. The hosts had 54 runs to defend off the last three overs when Andre Russell came to bat and took control. In a little cameo of 13 balls, Andre Russell smashed 7 sixes and took the game away from RCB.
On the other side, Delhi Capitals have faced back to back defeats and would be desperate to secure a win and return to winning ways. They started their campaign with an emphatic 37 runs win over Mumbai Indians and stunned everyone with their second win which came against KKR in the Super Over. With Rishabh Pant, Prithvi Shaw, Shreyas Iyer, Chris Morris and Kagiso Rabada in the ranks, Delhi Capitals will be a posing a tough challenge to RCB.
Total – 22
M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru is batsmen paradise. Plenty of runs will be on offer here for batsmen. The short boundaries too will make a count in the run fest. In the last game between RCB and KKR, we saw spinners bowled well so there might be some little help for the spin bowlers.

Rishabh Pant created havoc in Wankhede Stadium with his 27-ball 78* in the opening fixture against MI. In front of the bowling attack, RCB has, he can be the most dangerous power-hitter.
