Delhi Daredevils Vs Royal Challengers Banglaore Match Prediction, Preview, Betting tips, Playing 11 : Who Will Win today?

Hello and welcome to the coverage of the 45th match of Vivo IPL 2018 where Delhi Daredevils take on Royal Challengers Bangalore. Pooooff! It is a dead rubber beyond any doubt, and the worst part is that both teams look absolutely clueless even with such a rich squad especially RCB. DD is rock bottom at the points table where RCB is one better than them. Nonetheless, the prospect of seeing young Prithvi Shaw and Rishabh Iyer tackle AB Devillers and Virat Kohli will be intriguing, so join us for the latest team news, starting XIs, key players, and of course our clairvoyance (read prediction and analysis).

Delhi Daredevils

It was hard to see Rishabh Pant’s glorious century being disdained by an effortless SRH run chase. DD is unable to plug the holes, and days when their batting is living up to the mark, they are being let down by brainless bowling. DD’s bowling line-up boasts of experience and firepower, but they look clueless when things start going against them. This is where the need of cool and composed heads are needed, and at the moment Delhi Daredevils certainly lack such personalities on the field. Pant scored an unbelievable century but was guilty of selling Iyer and Patel down the river, and he looks in a trance every time there is a call for a run or two. Maxi hasn’t fired at all this Vivo IPL 2018, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see him warming the bench and compatriot Christian coming in for him.


Bowling Line-up

Boult took some serious hit in the last couple of matches, and uncharacteristically Amit Mishra too was woeful against SRH. They need him at the helm of his bowling to savor some pride. I don’t see many changes in the team, as they look to run out of ideas more than anything else. Liam Plunkett may be axed, and Junior Dala may get a look in.

Key Players to watch

Iyer, Prithvi, and Pant are the brightest hopes this DD team can pin their hopes on. They would be my key players, and in the bowling section, it will be Mishra and Boult.

Playing XI

Jason Roy, Prithvi Shaw, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Glenn Maxwell/Dan Christian, Vijay Shankar/Manjot Kalra, Harshal Patel, Junior Dala, Amit Mishra, Shahbaz Nadeem, Trent Boult

Royal Challengers Bangalore

Despite being a team led by Virat Kohli, RCB’s plans look stale and toothless at the moment. SRH has the finest bowling attack, and unable to score 19 from 12 balls can be justified, but they had the match when ABD and VK were at the crease, and suddenly everything fell apart and slowed down. VK is going through a tough time, and ABD hasn’t really got it out of the screws. Parthiv Patel showed why he should be given the chance to play as an opener, while Vohra has impressed. The inclusion of Moeen Ali was a nice idea and he bowled pretty well. He would be important against DD on a slow Kotla track. Mandeep has shown his excellence but needs to back himself up in pressure situations. Colin  De Grandhomme has been impressive and will be a key asset for Royal Challengers Bangalore.


Bowling Line-up

Umesh has been excellent as always, and so has been Southee. VK would not like to tinker with these two. Chahal looks too lost his spark temporarily, but VK has enough faith in him. RCB’s standout performer has been Mohammad Siraj, who has grown into a potent death over the bowler and can be seen as a competition to Bumrah and Bhuvi in the Indian team.

Key Players

Their key players remain to be Kohli and ABD with the bat, and Southee and Umesh with the ball.

Playing XI

Parthiv Patel, Manan Vohra, Virat Kohli, AB De Villiers, Moeen Ali, Mandeep Singh, Colin De Grandhomme, Umesh Yadav, Mohammad Siraj, Tim Southee, Yuzvendra Chahal.
