The time is running out for Delhi Capitals because a defeat here would almost knock them out of the top-four running. Bangalore on the other hand can move close to the top spot with a win and are looking good to do that. Yet, it is the opening partnership market that we are putting our stakes on. I am backing Bangalore to post the highest opening partnership of the match.

Head to Head


Delhi and Bangalore have played each other in 29 IPL matches with ten wins for Delhi and 18 victories for Bangalore with one match ending as no result.

Bangalore have dominated this fixture recently with four straight wins including a 23-run win when the sides met last in bangalore in mid-April. Virat Kohli’s 50 was complemented by Vijaykumar Vyshak’s 3/20 as Delhi fell short.

Delhi Capitals Form


Delhi are 10th in the standings with six points from their nine matches. They are coming off a five-run win over Gujarat Titans and have won three of their last four matches.

Captain David Warner (308 runs) has been Delhi’s best batter while Axar Patel (238) was a revelation. Kuldeep Yadav’s eight wickets places him top of the charts while three bowlers have taken seven wickets each.

There isn’t much time for Delhi left in the season and they need to keep winning from here.

Delhi Capitals Team News


Mitchell Marsh didn’t play the last game due to sickness but should be fit to play here, in place of Rilee Rossouw.

Royal Challengers Bangalore Form


Royal Challengers Bangalore are 5th in the standings with ten points from nine matches. They are coming off an acrimonious 18-run win over Lucknow making it three wins out of their last four.

Faf du Plessis with 466 runs and Virat Kohli (364) have been the best batters for Bangalore this season. Bowling duties have been carried out by Mohammed Siraj (15 wickets).

The challenge for Bangalore is to find the right composition as they keep rotating the players.

Royal Challengers Bangalore Team News


Kedar Jadhav was signed as a replacement player for Bangalore and don’t be surprised if he straight away gets into the playing XI.

Verdict

Delhi Capitals have picked up form just at the right time but they still remain rooted to the bottom of the standings. Royal Challengers Bangalore have a chance to move closer to the top of the table, but their over-dependence on the top-order remains a concern. They are still in prime position though, to start well. I am backing Royal Challengers Bangalore to post the highest opening partnership of the match.
