RCB vs DD: Who will win today? Here's our prediction
Virat Kohli is not the man to be found often on the losing side. However, that has not been the case this year with Royal Challengers Bangalore. RCB are on 7th spot in the IPL table. But they have a good opportunity to turn things around when they face 8th placed Delhi Daredevils tonight. So who will emerge on top in this battle?
How much will RCB score tonight?
RCB have a power-packed batting line up and if the hosts end up batting first we could see a high scoring contest tonight. Kohli has been the anchor of RCB's innings over the years and if he stays in the middle for a while we are looking at a score of 180 plus. However, Kohli would want a little more contribution from ABD.
How much will Delhi Daredevils score?
Gambhir might be one of the most successful captains in the IPL so far, but the southpaw has failed to replicate his success in IPL 2018. If the Daredevils bat first we are looking at a score of 160 plus. RCB might be low on confidence but Umesh Yadav has bowled with venom and Chahal knows the Chinnaswamy pitch in and out.
Who will win tonight?
The home team have to be the favourites. History also favours RCB over DD having won 11 of their last 12 completed fixtures against Daredevils. If either AB de Villiers or Kohli fires a big knock tonight it would be enough to see the Royal Challengers through. But if the D/L method comes into play due to rains, this fixture could go both ways.
