Delhi Daredevils Vs Royal Challengers Bangalore:
Almost a month of IPL and now we have the last match of the group stages. This is the last match but surely a quarter final between the 2 sides as who will go through next round. It’s the Delhi Daredevils who will take on the Royal Challengers Bangalore and the winner will go to next round while looser will go home. Match will be played at Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International Stadium, Raipur. Match will start at 7:30 PM Pakistan Standard time. Last time it was Delhi who won and gained 2 important points.
Starting from the RCB whose performance was very poor in the start of the tournament but the way they fought back and destroyed every opposition was surely admiring. They have won 3 consecutive matches and now required just one more win to go through next round. It will not be wrong to say that the only reason of their victory is Virat Kohli who has broken every record of the IPL and the way he has batted this season can not be described with the words. He so far has scored 4 Hundred in this IPL and the leading run scorer of this season and now one is near to him this year. AB De Villiers have supported him a lot and is the second highest run scorer in this IPL. Chris Gayle has a lot got his form back and scored a lot of runs in the last 2 games but his performance will be of prime importance in this last match as this is do or die for RCB, RCB only issue is their bowling and if they clicked in the last match RCB have a very bright chance of going through the next round. They have bowled well in the last 3 matches and just to continue their performance like that. Last time they lost of DD and this time they have work on their mistakes.
Coming towards the Delhi side who finally managed to beat SRH on the last ball of the match and now they finally got the chance of going in a knockout match against RCB. They so far have won 7 out of 13 games and are at no 6 in the points table but victory will send them in top 4 and that is what they required. Delhi as a whole have performed well in this tournament but their last few matches were not the best which not only went in defeat but also the NRR has also become very low. Karun Nair and Quinton De Kock role will be very important as they are in a good touch and they were the 2 who scored runs against RCB in the last match. Zaheer Khan as a captain has played his part quite well and he just need to use his bowlers with a complete plan as they can’t afford another loss in the tournament. They have won against RCB last time so that will be a big positive for them.
Coming towards the pitch of Raipur which is a batting which but bowlers can get some swing here. There is no rain forecast for the match.
