RCB VS DC Preview
Both the teams coming into the game today with momentum. DC are one win away for ensuring berth in playoffs. They have four games in hand. One is good enough for them. They have very good chances to end in top 2. Virat Kohli’s men have a different motto. They are playing just to stay in competition. If they are to win trophy, they cannot lose any game and have the mercy of rain gods as well.
Since the advent of IPl in 2008. Virat Kohli has represented RCB only. Now he is laying against DC in his home town. Virat Kohli’s record at kotla, where he grew up playing domestic games, is impeccable. He averages above 80 in IPL games played here. He has plenty of decision to make ahead of the match. Firstly, He has to find a replacement for Moen Ali, he left to England to play ODI’s against Pakistan. Virat has got two options to fill in the slot. Henrich Klasan or Shimron Hetmyer. Dale Steyn is also ruled out of the tournament for remainder of IPL. This will insist Virat Kohli to include Tim Southee.
DC in persuit to top two spots
DC on the other hand has bigger plans. Usually are they not considered as favorites before the start of the tournament. But their evolution in this season improved odds against them. Kagiso Rabada is strong contender for purple cap this season. HE has pikd up 23 wickets already. With playoffs in the horizon, He is likely to break Dwayne Bravo’s record of 32 wickets in a season, provided he continues in the same Rythm. Delhi seldom changed their batting order this season. Its their bowling altered in many instances. Chris Morris might give way to Sandeep Lamichane considering pitch conditions
- Not more than 360 to be scored in the game,
- Team batting first to win the game.
- Virat Kohli to score more than 30
