Delhi Capitals vs Royal Challengers Bangalore Predictions

The Capitals and Royal Challengers have identical records so this should be a very tight encounter. It will be the first match played in Ahmedabad so little is known about the conditions which makes a winner pick tough.

My best bet is for the in-form Shikhar Dhawan to score over 27.5 runs in this match.

  • Delhi Capitals’ Shikhar Dhawan has scored 85, 92, 45 & 28 runs in 4 of his last 5 matches.
  • Delhi Capitals have won 4 of their last 5 matches.
  • Royal Challengers Bangalore have won 4 of their last 5 matches.
  • Royal Challengers Bangalore’s Glenn Maxwell has scored 39, 59, 78 & 22 runs in his last 4 innings’.

Head to Head

Delhi Capitals have won four of their last five matches against the Royal Challengers Bangalore. Last season the Capitals did the double, winning by 59 runs and six wickets respectively.

Delhi Capitals Form

The Delhi Capitals are placed second on the IPL table with four wins from their opening five matches. They are level on points with first and third place as net run rate separates the three sides.

The Capitals won their last match in Chennnai against the Sunrisers Hyderabad. It was a cracking fixture which ended level and went to a Super Over.

Prithvi Shaw top scored with 53 runs as the Delhi Capitals posted a total of 159 runs. Shikhar Dhawan contributed 28, Rishabh Pant 37 and Steven Smith 34 runs.

The Capitals took wickets throughout the Sunrisers innings but their inability to get rid of Kane Williamson meant they were never safe. Avesh Khan was the pick of the bowlers, taking 3-24 in four overs. 

Fortunately the Capitals managed to outscore the Sunrisers in the Super Over to take the two points.

Delhi Capitals Injuries & Team News

Ravichandran Ashwin has left the Delhi Capitals for COVID-19 reasons. That is a massive blow to the Capitals who don’t have another world class spin bowler in their squad.

Royal Challengers Bangalore Form

The Royal Challengers Bangalore went into their last match at the top of the table with four wins from four matches. It was their best ever start to an IPL season.

In their last match RCB faced another in-form side in the form of Chennai Super Kings. The Super Kings elected to bat first in Mumbai and scored 191 runs.

The Royal Challngers looked to have the innings under control until the final over when their leading wicket-taker, Harshal Patel got smashed for 35 runs. Suddenly their target was a lot bigger than it should have been.

Devdutt Padikkal got the RCB off to a flying start with 34 runs from 15 balls but once he was dismissed things went badly wrong. The Chennai spinners dominated and the Royal Challengers Bangalore could only reach 122 in their 20 overs.

The 69-run defeat was a hammer blow to Virat Kohli’s side but they are still in a very good position to make a run for the playoffs.

Royal Challengers Bangalore Injuries & Team News

The Royal Challengers Bangalore have lost two Australians in Adam Zampa and Kane Richardson. They have both returned home for personal reasons, most likely related to India’s surge in COVID-19 cases.

Neither have played much cricket for the RCB this season but there are fears that more players will begin to leave.
