The pitch at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium is a belter of a track. The ball comes nicely onto the bat and the batters can hit through the line right from the start of their innings.

Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Delhi Capitals | Team News

Royal Challengers Bangalore

Bangalore were on the loosing side of a last-ball finish earlier this week, but they're better placed than the Capitals on the points table. They will be hopeful & confident with the return of Wanindu Hasaranga, who is one of the top wrist spinners in T20 cricket right now.

Hasaranga has joined the Royal Challengers camp and is available for selection after having completed his national commitments in New Zealand. The Sri Lanka legspinner will enter the XI in place of David Willey or Wayne Parnell. Australia fast bowler Josh Hazlewood has already arrived in India on Friday and will finish his rehab with RCB. He will be not available to play against the Capitals on Saturday.

Delhi Capitals

Left-arm spinners Axar Patel and Kuldeep Yadav will offer Capitals a brilliant match-up against Royal Challengers' right-hander-heavy top five. Nortje and Mustafizur have been decent at the death, but Warner's slow at the top has been a worrying sign. In fact, he has been consistent but he is not getting the support he needs. Warner is unable to change the gear due to regular wickets falling at the other end. Prithvi Shaw or Manish Pandey have to step up & take responsibility otherwise the chaos will carry on. Mitchell Marsh's return in the DC camp and an easy-paced hit-through-the-line Chinnaswamy track, though, could free him up.
