In the Match 56 of the Indian Premier League 2021, the Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Capitals will compete with each other. The Royal Challengers Bangalore team will need contributions from players like Glenn Maxwell and Yuzvendra Chahal, while Delhi Capitals have the presence of experienced Shikhar Dhawan and Avesh Khan.
The Royal Challengers Bangalore team have 8 wins in 13 matches, and are positioned 3rd in the points table. In their last league match, they lost to Sunrisers Hyderabad team by 4 runs. While, the Delhi Capitals secured victory over the Chennai Super Kings and will be in confidence. They are positioned 1st in the points table with 10 wins in 13 league matches.
Delhi are cruising towards the top and haven’t stopped since, they will look to win this one and have the season ended with them getting 22 points, which is fantastic. Bangalore don’t have a good net run rate and that will not make them reach the second position even with a win, but they will have to do their very best to boost their run rate.

The Royal Challengers has been playing well, and are expected to keep their momentum by winning this fixture. The team’s bowling performances have been impressive, and the batters have complimented them well. While, the Delhi Capitals team has been the best side in the tournament and will look to end the league stage to keep confidence ahead of the playoffs.
Royal Challengers Bangalore lost their last game in the last ball, where ABD needed six off one to score off Bhuvneshwar. Bangalore’s batting was not so good; Maxwell was fantastic as always, but Padikkal played very slow and it costed them at the last, which could have made a difference. Virat or Padikkal will have to step up in this game, as that will be a crucial contribution at the top.
Glenn Maxwell has been the best batter for the team in this season. After donning the RCB jersey, his fortunes have changed in the IPL. He has been impressive with his ability to understand the situation and play accordingly, with a mix of defensive and attacking shots. He has looked in great touch with the bat, and can be useful with the ball as well. He has scored 447 runs in 13 matches at an average of 40.63.
Chahal has been brilliant in the Phase 2 and has been able to bag wickets with fine confidence and skills. The pitches have been kind to him, and offered a fine assistance in containing runs and taking wickets. In 13 matches, he has scalped 15 wickets at 21.60, and will look to be the biggest match winner for the team in the upcoming matches.
