Delhi is on a high after defeating Gujarat
- Bangalore must be steady in order to make the playoffs.
- The spin-friendly venue is expected to cause problems for teams.
Royal Challengers Bangalore have won three of their last four matches, with the majority of them coming on the road. They are confident in their ability to defeat Delhi.
After struggling with the bat, Delhi are coming off a shocking win over Gujarat Titans. The good news is that their bowling attack is coming along nicely, but their batting needs to improve, especially when facing a quality assault like RCB’s.
Head-to-head record, DC v RCB
In head-to-head matches, Delhi Capitals have won 10 and Royal Challengers Bangalore have won 19. Earlier in the season, RCB won the meeting between these two teams. It’s also worth noting that Delhi hasn’t beaten RCB in the IPL since 2020, with the Faf du Plessis-led side winning the last four meetings.
The pitch in Delhi’s Arun Jaitley Stadium favours spin bowlers, and teams have had success defending runs there. As a result, the team that wins the toss may choose to bowl first in order to take advantage of the spin-friendly circumstances and limit their opponents to a low score.
Both DC and RCB have talented players who can win this match. However, given their recent form and superior position in the points table, RCB may have a minor advantage in this encounter.
The Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi has an average score of 160-170 in T20 matches. However, because the pitch is anticipated to aid spin bowlers, we may see lower scores in this match than normal.
Pitch and conditions
The Arun Jaitley Stadium surface in Delhi is projected to be slow and low, favoring spin bowlers. The team that wins the toss may choose to bowl first in order to capitalize on the circumstances. However, the weather in Delhi is often hot and dry, so the surface may become more batting-friendly as the match develops.
