Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Daredevils aren’t going that strong in the tournament and are looking to revive their fortunes.
RCB are hoping that a run of four straight home games would help them resurrect their IPL campaign.
Having played four matches so far, they have just one win out of their four games.
RCB star batsman AB de Villiers said that the team wants to deliver but they would not get bogged down by the criticism coming its way.
“This new season has started with high hopes, but this is not where we were expecting it to be,” he wrote in a column in the Times of India.
RCB would be embarking on a stretch of four games at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in next ten games where they would be clashing against Delhi Daredevils, Chennai Super Kings, Kolkata Knight Riders and Mumbai Indians.
De Villiers believes that this would work in their favour as a couple of sins would be enough for gaining the momentum.
“Our next four games will all be played in front of our home supporters at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium and this burst of matches over the next ten days presents us with an ideal opportunity to revive our campaign. Win one, win two… confidence grows…,” AB de Villiers wrote.
RCB is a team which is batting-heavy and has the leading run-scorer of the season, Virat Kohli by their side.
“Defeat in Mumbai on Sunday was disappointing, especially after Umesh Yadav took two MI wickets with the first two balls of the match. Maybe this lack of energy was evident in our run chase, although it must be said that Kohli, our captain, played a fantastic inning in real adversity; he is hitting the ball really well and that obviously augers well for our revival,” he added.
