Delhi Capitals (Match Odds – 2.05):


David Warner’s team surprised the Gujarat Titans with a last-minute victory. They successfully defended their 130-run lead, winning by 5 runs. It was a rare bright spot for the team in an otherwise disastrous campaign. They can’t make the playoffs any longer, and Warner wants his players to play for pride in this game.

The side’s inconsistency with the bat has been a major issue, and they will need a strong start from David Warner and Philip Salt to put RCB on the mat. They need runs from Manish Pandey, Rilee Rossouw, and Priyan Garg because the middle order hasn’t fired. Axar Patel, Aman Hakim Khan, and Ripal Patel must score runs in the lower middle order to compensate for the lack of form at the top.

The bowling attack will be pleased to replicate its performance from the previous game. The RCB openers are in good form and will need quick runs from Khaleel Ahmed and Ishant Sharma. Anrich Nortje hasn’t been at his best recently, and the team will be hoping for a strong spell from him in this game. Axar Patel and Kuldeep Yadav must play important roles because the circumstances favor them.

Full Squad:

David Warner (c), Prithvi Shaw, Ripal Patel, Rovman Powell, Sarfaraz Khan, Yash Dhull, Mitchell Marsh, Lalit Yadav, Axar Patel, Anrich Nortje, Chetan Sakariya, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Khaleel Ahmed, Lungi Ngidi, Mustafizur Rahman, Aman Khan, Kuldeep Yadav, Praveen Dubey, Vicky Ostwal, Ishant Sharma, Phil Salt, Mukesh Kumar, Manish Pandey, Rilee Rossouw

Players to watch out for:

David Warner

The left-handed Australian has been an excellent team leader this season. However, he has only hit two runs in his last two games and will need to regain his form in this game.

Aman Hakim Khan

The batting all-rounder hit 51 to help Delhi Capitals post a competitive total against Gujarat Titans.

Ishant Sharma

The right-arm pace bowler has been a standout for the Delhi Capitals this season, dismissing Vijay Shankar and Rahul Tewatia in the most recent match.

Possible Playing XI:

David Warner (c), Philip Salt (wk), Manish Pandey, Rilee Rossouw, Priyam Garg, Axar Patel, Ripal Patel, Aman Hakim Khan, Kuldeep Yadav, Anrich Nortje, Ishant Sharma, Khaleel Ahmed (Impact Player)

Royal Challengers Bangalore (Match Odds – 1.78):


Faf du Plessis’ team has improved. They have won three of their last four games, including an 18-run victory over the Lucknow Super Giants in a low-scoring game. The RCB captain would like to see better performances from his middle-order players, as this has been the team’s biggest weakness. The visitors will look to capitalize on Delhi Capitals’ struggles.

Faf du Plessis and Virat Kohli have been in fantastic form, and the experienced duo must get off to a good start in this game. Glenn Maxwell has been the side’s lone performer in the middle order, which has been a bit of a headache. Anju Rawat and Suyash Prabhudessai will be required to run for the team. Runs must be added down the order by Dinesh Karthik, Mahipal Lomror, and Wanindu Hasaranga.

The bowlers performed admirably in the previous game, and they can expect early wickets from Mohammad Siraj and Josh Hazlewood. Hasaranga must take advantage of the conditions and pick wickets in the middle order alongside Maxwell. In the supporting role, Karn Sharma, Lamror, and Harshal Patel will look to keep the Capitals at bay.

Full Squad:

Faf du Plessis (c), Virat Kohli, Suyash Prabhudessai, Rajat Patidar, Dinesh Karthik, Anuj Rawat, Finn Allen, Glenn Maxwell, Wanindu Hasaranga, Shahbaz Ahmed, Harshal Patel, David Willey, Karn Sharma, Mahipal Lomror, Mohammed Siraj, Josh Hazlewood, Siddarth Kaul, Akash Deep, Reece Topley, Himanshu Sharma, Michael Bracewell, Manoj Bhandage, Rajan Kumar, Avinash Singh, Sonu Yadav

Virat Kohli

The superstar batter was in excellent form in the field against the Lucknow Super Giants. He creates an intimidating environment for opposing batters and has hit 364 runs this season.

Josh Hazlewood

The tall Australian right-arm pace bowler missed much of this year but impressed on his IPL 2023 debut, dismissing Ayush Badoni and Naveen-ul-Haq.

Possible Playing XI:

Faf du Plessis (c), Virat Kohli, Anuj Rawat, Glenn Maxwell, Mahipal Lomror, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Suyash Prabhudessai, Wanindu Hasaranga, Karn Sharma, Mohammed Siraj, Josh Hazlewood, Harshal Patel (Impact Player)
