Team News

Royal Challengers Bangalore

RCB have registered five victories after featuring in twelve games but four of those came in the previous four games. Virat Kohli is in great form and providing his side with a good start from his end in almost every game. He played a brilliant inning of 92 in the previous game. Faf is not having an excellent season as he has been so inconsistent. The duo is expected to open the inning for RCB in the game against PBKS.

Glenn Maxwell didn't feature in the previous game. Patidar played a brilliant inning in the previous game but Will Jacks has failed to replicate his performance against GT. Dinesh Karthik has played lots of brilliant innings for RCB this season and has taken the responsibility to score runs consistently at lower down the order. Cameron Green also played an important inning in the previous game.

RCB only have two games left in their hands and the hopes for the playoffs are still there. The issues in bowling have been resolved a lot lately. Mohammed Siraj who was struggling to bowl one decent over, is bowling quite confidently in the last couple of games.

Bangalore don't have a good spin bowler in their squad to handle the middle overs. They let go of Chahal and haven't been able to replace him with someone else. Yash Dayal has bowled some sensational spells this season and he is the most important bowler for the Royals right now. 

Siraj picked up three wickets in the previous game while Swapnil Singh, Karn Sharma, and Lockie Ferguson picked up two wickets each. RCB have to continue their winning streak if they want to keep their hopes for the playoffs.

Delhi Capitals

DC are coming into this huge game after winning their previous match against Rajasthan Royals. The consistency has been a problem for Delhi and it would be difficult for them when they meet Bangalore on Sunday. Prithvi Shaw didn't feature in the previous game but Jake Fraser-McGurk and Abishek Porel both delivered as openers.

Fraser-McGurk has displayed his sensational hitting. The right-handed batter has already struck 4 half-centuries this season with his highest IPL score being 84 runs. The South African youngster, Tristan Stubbs is a vital batter in the DC unit. Stubbs has scored 318 runs in 12 games as a middle-order batter at an impressive strike rate of 188.17 so far this season. 

Captain Rishabh Pant will miss the game as he is suspended and serve a one-match ban. Axar Patel is delivering some brilliant performances with the bat or bowl in every game.

Mukesh Kumar picked up two wickets in the previous game. The right-arm pacer bowls mainly in the death overs and has picked up wickets for his side consistently in almost every game despite conceding loads of runs. Kuldeep Yadav is having a brilliant season and bowled a perfect 4-over spell against the high-flying RR in the previous clash. Khaleel Ahmed has bowled good spells in the powerplay and will be there to bowl the important overs against RCB too.
