THE LOWDOWN

ROYAL CHALLENGERS BENGALURU

  • Royal Challengers Bengaluru have won their last four games and a fifth would draw them level on points with Delhi Capitals, keeping their play-off ambitions alive with a home clash with Chennai Super Kings following this one.
  • A superb batting performance saw them blast 241/7 last time out against Punjab Kings, Virat Kohli scoring 92 from 47 balls, before they bowled the Kings out for 181 in 17 overs, winning by 60 runs.

DELHI CAPITALS

  • Delhi Capitals know that a loss here is more than likely to knock them out of play-off contention due to their negative net-run-rate and with opponents RCB taking on CSK in the final round of league fixtures.
  • The Capitals have been dealt a huge blow by the news that captain Rishabh Pant has been suspended for this match due to his side’s slow over-rate against Rajasthan, a decision which was upheld on appeal and sees Axar Patel take over the role.

THE PREDICTION

The loss of their skipper is likely to have a hugely adverse effect on Delhi Capitals, not just because of his leadership abilities, but also his batting and wicketkeeping. Against a team coming off the back of having smashed 241 runs only three days ago and in red hot form, Delhi having to adjust their line-up at short notice is a real problem. This makes RCB favourites and on their own ground, they should be backed to get the better of Delhi.
