RCB vs DD: Head-to-head and Probable Playing XI
Virat Kohli's Royal Challengers Bangalore will be hoping for a turnaround when they welcome Delhi Daredevils to the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. Both the sides are on the bottom of the table and a win here could give them much needed momentum. But who holds the edge tonight? Here are the head-to-head records and probable playing XI for this fixture.
Historically RCB have been the better side
The two sides have faced each other on 19 occasions with RCB coming on top 12 times as compared to Delhi's 6 victories against them. One fixture had to be abandoned. At the Chinnaswamy Stadium, 8 matches have been played between these two teams with Bangalore winning 4. The Daredevils have won three times against Bangalore at this venue.
Death over bowling could cost RCB
This should be a high scoring contest with both the teams boasting big hitters in the top order. The Chinnaswamy Stadium is relatively smaller in size and the ropes can be cleared with ease. Kohli's major concern will be RCB's death bowling. The outfit from Bengaluru have conceded runs at an economy of 12.50 in the death overs.
Royal Challengers Bangalore: Probable Playing XI
Quinton de Kock (wicket-keeper), Virat Kohli (captain), AB de Villiers, Mandeep Singh, Corey Anderson, Washington Sundar, Murugan Ashwin, Chris Woakes, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Siraj and Yuzvendra Chahal.
Delhi Daredevils: Probable Playing XI
Jason Roy, Gautam Gambhir (captain), Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (wicket-keeper), Glenn Maxwell, Chris Morris, Gurkeerat Singh Mann, Rahul Tewatia, Mohammed Shami, Shahbaz Nadeem and Trent Boult.
