RCB vs DD IPL match Preview
Top heavy RCB have the likes of Chris Gayle and Shane Watson to do the early damage, but the batting orders taper off after that Kedar Jadhav, who has impressed in the England ODI series, is a vital cog in the middle order, and can help finish the innings on a high. On Chinnaswamy track, where par scores sometimes reach 180, anything less than 170, even with the dented batting attack that the RCB have, won’t be enough. The creaking bones of Zaheer Khan Kagiso Rabada who will join to put the initial pressure with the new ball. Amit Mishra and Shahbaz Nadeem, both of whom are clever bowlers in the shortest format and can stifle the flow of runs, they will support to Rabada.
The Delhi line-up: with no De Kock, Duminy, Iyer and a doubtful Pant, the likes of Karun Nair and Sanju Samson will have to take up the responsibility. Delhi’s team opener Sam Billings who would give great start with either Samson or Nair filling for Pant at the top, if he doesn’t play. There will be a fight between Carlos Brathwaite and Corey Anderson for the all-rounder, with Anderson holding a slightly bigger edge owing to his hard-hitting capabilities. There would be additional pressure on Chris Morris to provide the final flourish to the innings. RCB will be playing at home and they know the conditions extremely well. They would look to put the opposition in, restrict them and chase down the target with aplomb. They have the batting might to make a big innings score or chase down any target. But it won’t be easy against the bowling of DD that has versatility and variety. Zaheer Khan will be a tough nut to crack and Mishra will be difficult to score off. It will be more of RCB batting against DD bowling. We would go with RCB as they have the home support, familiar conditions and batting might to beat any opposition at home.
