The DC vs RCB match will be played at the Wankhede stadium on April 16 Saturday starting from 7.30 pm IST. It is the second of the two games to be played on that day at 3.3-0 pm at the Brabourne stadium. Let’s a have a look at their Match preview, prediction and Fantasy XI.
DC vs RCB
Delhi Capitals scored 215 with the bat powered by scores from Prithvi Shaw and David Warner. Their lower-order contributed as well. With the ball, Kuldeep Yadav cleaned up his former IPL franchise much like he had a point to prove. If they have the same balance, they can move forward in IPL 2022.
Royal Challengers Bangalore
RCB conceded 216 runs with the ball which highlights the issues with their bowling. Harshal Patel couldn’t play the game game due to family reasons. With the bat as well, they chased a tough total and as it turned out they fell way short of their target. RCB will actually have a lot of pressure to win the next match against Delhi.
DC vs RCB: Match prediction
Delhi Capitals against the Kolkata Knight Riders in their previous game and their openers Prithvi Shaw and David Warner played their best. The Royal Challengers Bangalore had a very tough game against the Chennai Super Kings and they felt the absence of Harshal Patel quite heavily. Meanwhile Akash Deep conceded plenty in his final few overs against CSK which might be a worry for Faf du Plessis. Both the teams have an equal chance of winning the game.
