Delhi Capitals ride on batting force
- RCB will hope to step up on the bowling front in Harshal Patel’s absence
- Rishabh Pant could be a game-changer for Delhi Capitals
Royal Challengers Bangalore suffered a shock loss to Chennai Super Kings last match and in the absence of Harshal Patel, the bowling unit looks off as they step up to face Delhi Capitals. RCB have three wins and two losses this season and has odds of 1.82 to win this game.
Delhi Capitals have two wins and two losses this year with the return of David Warner making their batting strength much more impressive. Delhi Capitals have odds of 1.96 to win this one, and will bank on their big hitters to keep RCB at bay.
RCB hold edge in overall record, but can they find bowling form?
Royal Challengers Bangalore have won 17 of the 28 clashes against Delhi Capitals over the years, including both matches in the 2021 season. However, in the two years prior to 2021, DC had a 4-0 record over RCB, winning all games in 2019 and 2020.
DC are our favourites to win this game with their strong batting posing concerns for RCB’s weak bowling.Recommended Bet by 10CRIC
Without Harshal Patel, RCB just seems to lack the edge needed to trouble Delhi Capitals’ strong batting line-up and that indeed could tilt this contest.
Keep an eye on…
Rishabh Pant: RCB went for 156 runs in the last 10 overs in the game against Chennai Super Kings. DC would also be targeting this second half of the innings and Rishabh Pant will be pivotal to that. He has been in decent touch and could be due a big one.
Wanindu Hasaranga: As a mystery spinner, Wanindu Hasaranga should be RCB’s x-factor in the middle overs and he has blown hot or cold this season so far. It will be upon him to carry RCB’s bowling in Harshal’s absence.
TIP: Rishabh Pant is in good touch. Back Rishabh Pant at 4.40 to be Delhi’s top batter!
