Royal Challengers Bangalore’s defeat to Sunrisers Hyderabad has dampened their chances of finishing in the top-two. If they win this match against Delhi Capitals big, it will still be difficult to dislodge Chennai Super Kings from the second position.
But the Virat Kohli-led side has discovered its mojo going into the playoffs, with its batting and bowling clicking, except for the form of AB de Villiers. With Glenn Maxwell batting in his element, Kohli too in good touch, and if de Villiers gets going then Bangalore would be a force to reckon.
Delhi Capitals on the other hand are bolstered by their win against Chennai Super Kings and a win in this match will give them the much-needed momentum. A balanced bowling unit they have in Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Avesh Khan, R Ashwin and Axar Patel – they just need to find someone who could strengthen their middle order along with Shimron Hetmyer.
