Royal Challengers Bangalore

RCB’s aim in this matchup against DC will be to claim a big victory. Because they are currently placed third and want to finish in the top two of the table. So it is highly unlikely that Bangalore will make any significant changes in the lineup. They will be pleased with the way they bowled in the last game but one thing that will concern them is the over-dependence on Maxwell. Nonetheless it will be an interesting matchup.

Delhi Capitals

Delhi Capitals confirmed their top spot in the league with a win against second placed Chennai Super Kings. As a result, they could make some changes in order to give their players some rest. Hetmyer’s brilliant innings will give them relief as they have two finishers that they can depend upon.

Prediction for the IPL 2021 Match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Capitals

Delhi Capitals are likely going to win this match considering their current form. Moreover, RCB’s batting lineup has not come together as a team yet because they have depended on one player to win them games. However, one can expect this contest to be a close affair.

Glenn Maxwell 10 Cr Captain

Glenn Maxwell has been the MVP of the RCB team during this phase of IPL 2021. Coming to bat at number three, Maxwell is playing with full freedom and is scoring runs for fun. Thus I have selected him as my captain for today’s game.

Harshal Patel 10 Cr Vice Captain

Harshal Patel is on track to become the highest wicket taker this season. The RCB quick has taken 29 wickets so far and one can expect him to add some more scalps in his tally. I have selected him as my vice captain because of his ability to take wickets in the death overs.

Yuzvendra Chahal 9 Cr

Since returning to form after a poor first two games of the UAE leg, Chahal has bowled some game changing spell for RCB. His ability to take wickets during crunch situation makes him a must have in the fantasy XI.

Shimron Hetmyer 8.5 Cr

Hetmyer was exceptional as his quick fire 28 helped DC pull of an important victory against CSK. After this performance, he could be promoted and one can expect the West Indian to perform against his former team.

Rishabh Pant 9.5 Cr

There is no doubt that Pant is a great finisher and the DC captain has played some excellent knocks during the UAE phase. So one can expect big innings from the wicket keeper batsman today.

Devdutt Paddikal 9.5 Cr

Despite struggling to score at a good strike rate in the last game, Paddikal will be crucial in the powerplay against DC as he can anchor the side against a good bowling attack.

Kagiso Rabada 9 Cr

There is a popular saying that fast bowlers hunt in pairs and DC might unarguably have the best bowling attack in the league. Rabada who is the spearhead of this attack is expected to deliver a stunning performance against Bangalore.

Andre Nortje 8.5 Cr

Nortje made an instant impact after playing his first game of IPL 2021. Thus the South African bowler’s opening spell will be crucial today against the likes of Kohli and Paddikal. Owing to the fact that he has picked up wickets in the power play.

Shreyas Iyer 9 Cr

Shreyas Iyer has batted well in this phase after coming back from an injury. Batting at number three Iyer is the backbone of the side and his innings will likely decide the outcome of the game.

Axar Patel 9 Cr

Axar Patel is in terrific form as he has picked up five wickets in the last two games. Therefore his left arm spin will come in handy against RCB as there are many right handed batsmen in the lineup.

Daniel Christian 8 Cr

Daniel Christian bowled a great spell against Hyderabad in the last game. His all-round abilities will once again be useful as Virat Kohli will get an extra option in both departments.
