DC vs RCB Preview

The Delhi Capitals will be pit against the Royal Challengers Bangalore in Match 22 of the fourteenth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), which is all set to be hosted at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad.

The Delhi Capitals as well as the Royal Challengers Bangalore share the same number of points – eight from the five games that they have played. However, it is the Capitals who sit above the Bangalore outfit courtesy of a superior net run-rate.

Just when the Royal Challengers Bangalore were starting to look invincible, they were humbled by a rampaging Chennai Super Kings. After winning four games on the trot, matters suddenly went haywire for RCB as they crashed to a huge defeat.

RCB were on top throughout the first innings before a mammoth 37-run over titled the game completely in favour of the Super Kings. However, there were some positives for RCB from the game. Devdutt Padikkal’s looked in fine touch before he was dismissed while Maxwell seems to be in good touch as well.

The fall of Padikkal’s wicket completely derailed the RCB chase and they will be looking to sort out their middle-order before the next game. The Royal Challengers will be going up against the Capitals, who are fresh from a Super Over win against the Sunrisers Hyderabad.

However, matters at Delhi are not as good as they seem. They squandered a good start before making a small comeback in the end. As for their bowling, Stoinis’ lone over was expensive while Kagiso Rabada failed to defend 16 runs off the last over.

The Capitals will be hurt by the loss of Ravichandran Ashwin, who has taken a break from the tournament citing family reasons. However, Axar Patel and Amit Mishra are in good form and the Capitals are not likely to feel Ashwin’s loss.

As two powerhouses go up against one another, we are in for a high-octane, mouth-watering clash as both sides will be looking to claim the top spot in the points table.

Pitch Report

The pitch is a flat one and there will be runs galore on the newly prepared surface. Batsmen will make merry and will be able to play shots across the line as well. Expect the captain to win the toss to bowl first as the temperatures will ease in the second half and the dew will come into play.

Weather Report

The temperature will hover around the 40 degrees Celsius mark and will considerably go down as the night progresses. The humidity of 15% along with winds blowing at just 8km/h will make it seem warmer than it actually will be.
