The IPL tournament which can also be called a Vacation plan for many of us is starting with its Grand opening match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Capitals. It is going to be a massive game between the Capitals and the Challengers.
RCB vs DC Today’s Match prediction is as follows:-
Toss Predictions for RCB vs DC:
Chinnaswamy is moreover batting friendly than a bowling pitch so whoever wins the toss would want to bat first to put a 200+ score to defend easily in the 2nd innings. The toss will have a massive effect on the result of the match and could change the match prediction in either direction.
If RCB bats first (predicted score: 160-190):
Looking at the batting line-up of Bangalore right from the start they will aim to go after the opposition bowlers as they have big hitters till No.7 and the key innings will be played in the middle-order by De Villiers and Shimron Hetmyer. Our Ipl match predictions suggest that someone like Marcus Stoinis who can come to bat at 6 can play a big inning which can add handful runs to the team. Death overs will be crucial and could change the course and match prediction for RCB vs DC.
If DC bats first(predicted score: 150-190):
The top 4 batsmen of Delhi Capitals are the core of the team and if they lose their wickets at the initial stage of the innings, it would be hard for them to post any big score. Dhawan, Shaw, Iyer and Pant are those 4 batsmen and Pant is the key from all them. We predict Iyer to be the highest-run scorer in the team.
Rcb:- The team has plenty of foreign player choices to make, like the all-rounder choice between Marcus Stoinis, De Grandhomme, and Mooen Ali, they can play anyone out of them. There will also be an option among Tim Southee and Nathan Coulter-Nile. Parthiv Patel will be the first choice wicketkeeper and is expected to open with skipper Virat Kohli.
Rcb predicted playing XI:- Parthiv Patel, Kohli, De Villiers, Hetmyer, Shivam Dube, Stoinis, Washington Sundar, Southee, Siraj, Umesh, Chahal.
What Delhi has always been lacking is a charismatic leadership from many seasons. This year also it will be a question for the team management whether to continue Shreyas Iyer as team captain or they can replace him with Shikhar Dhawan who has been traded from SRH.
The team also has perfect bowling combinations where Boult or Rabbada can open the new ball, and to turn the ball they have someone like Amit Mishra and Sandeep Lamichhane. Avesh Khan had a good season with the ball last year, so we can expect him to be the support in the bowling unit.
Dc predicted playing Xi:-
Dhawan, Shaw, Iyer, Pant, Ingram, Axar, Morris, Mishra, Boult, Lamichhane, Avesh Khan.
Key Player Battles:-
Hetmyer vs Pant:
Both the left-hander’s posses a free-flowing style of game where they can execute their big shots at any stage of the match. Pant can be very dangerous to any strike bowler and go after him like he smashed Bhuvneshwar Kumar for 26 runs in 5 deliveries. Hetmyer is new to the league so we Predict Pant to score more runs than Hetmyer.
