IPL 10: RCB vs DD Match Preview, Prediction, Playing XI, Dream 11 team
Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Delhi DareDevils Match Preview
Delhi has a bowling heavy unit with Zaheer khan as their leader. They spent quite generously at the auction this year and acquired some big names. Kagiso Rabada for Rs. 5 Crores; the youngster is a brilliant talent and his temperament makes him a world beater. Pat Cummins was bought at Rs. 4.5 Crores, Angelo Matthews at 2 Crore and Corey Anderson at 1 Crore. Murugan Ashwin the leg spinner from Tamil Nadu too attracted a decent bid of 1 crore. DD have never played an IPL final, that’s one monkey they’d like to get off their back.
Sam Billings and Sanju Samson will start proceedings for Delhi with Karun Nair to follow. The powerful Corey Anderson at number 4, the teenage sensation Rishab Pant at 5 with Chris Morris at number 6. Shahbaz Nadeem and Amit Mishra will form the spin duo and the pace attack led by Zaheer khan the captain will also have Mohammad Shami and Kagiso Rabada.
The pace attack of the Royal Challengers did take some heavy beating in the game against the Sunrisers. The pace trio conceded 122 runs in 11 overs with Mills and Aniket Choudhary picking a wicket each. To add a new dimension to the pace attack the inclusion of Harshal Patel is a major possibility. The rest of the squad would majorly remain the same.
Players To Watch Out For RCB vs DD
CHRIS GAYLE: The master batsman has destroyed many attacks across the various leagues he’s played. Carries a gigantic frame and hits gigantic sixes. That’s Chris Gayle for you. His numbers in IPL cricket are mind boggling. 3426 runs in 92 games at 43.36 striking at a whopping 153.28. He’s scored 5 hundred in IPL, the most by any player, which includes the 175* he scored at the same venue. He’ll be eager to make a mark, more so, because the other leading batsmen are injured.
KAGISO RABADA: The South African has made a huge mark in international cricket at a very young age. His delivery to dismiss Usman Khawaja in Australia was a sight to behold. He’ll be making his IPL debut this season and will surely be in the reckoning for the emerging player of the tournament. In the T20s he’s played so far, he’s picked 39 wickets in 30 games at an economy of 7.49.
RCB vs DD Match Prediction; Who will Win?
DD have a strong bowling unit while the Challengers are batting heavy. DD would like to win the toss and bat first. If DD manage to score 170-180, we’ll be in for a cracker of a game. RCB have the batting might and at home, they are a tough lot to beat and are the favorites to win this fixture.
