|Date & Time||Sunday April 28, 2019, 6:30 AM (EDT)|
Feroz Shah Kotla
Delhi Capitals -110 / Royal Challengers Bangalore -110
In the Indian Premier League, the Delhi Capitals will host the Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Feroz Shah Kotla. This is a massive match for the home side as it will give them a chance to secure a spot in the finals.
Royal Challengers Bangalore suffered a massive blow to their season as Dale Steyn returned to South Africa with a shoulder injury. Steyn was the leader of the RCB bowling unit and his presence was vital in aiding the likes of Umesh Yadav and Tim Southee to perform. That being said, RCB enter this match is good form as the team has won its last 3 games. RCB last played against KXIP where the team won by 17 runs. AB de Villiers was the star performer for RCB as the South African batsman scored an impressive 82 runs off 44 balls. This will be a tougher match for RCB as they are playing against stronger opposition.
Looking at the Delhi Capitals, the team look very solid and if the team wins this fixture, they will move top of the table. In their last outing, DC played against the Rajasthan Royals whom they beat by 6 wickets. The bowling has been the key for the Delhi Capitals this season with Rabada and Morris playing well, the team looks very threatening.
The pitch in Delhi is known to suit the pace bowlers. This will give the Capitals a massive boost as they have a fearsome pace attack while RCB are missing Dale Steyn.
RCB have shown their talent in recent weeks and have won their last 3 games. That being said, I see the Delhi Capitals winning this fixture. DC are the stronger side and the conditions should be in their favour. The Capitals to win and move top of the table.
