Date & Time: on Sunday, on 7th April; 04:00pm IST
Venue: M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru
We are just into the second week of the season and Bangalore finds themselves in a peculiar situation where every win and loss will make a difference to their playoff chances. It’s high time they pull out their A game in all the departments.
On the other hand, Delhi played well in all the 5 matches so far, but only won two of them as they lost a few crucial moments. Going forward, they cannot repeat those mistakes, as loss of momentum in the middle of the season can take teams elsewhere.
A Batsman friendly surface is likely to be in store for Sunday’s clash with some assistance for Spinners. Even with a 4 pm start, chasing is going to be an advantage at this venue unlike others.
The aggressive batsman has two low scores on a trot which is quite unusual from him in IPL. A big knock is due from the Delhi batsman now. It might be time for it when he faces Bangalore bowlers on Sunday. He has a good record against them, scoring 170 runs at a strike rate of 170 in the last few encounters.
He was the only batsman who looked in control playing spin in the previous match from Delhi and that might play a key role on Sunday as well in Bangalore where spinners did well in the previous match here. Adding to his recent form, the past record also is in favor of Iyer, who scored 164 runs in the last 5 encounters against RCB bowlers.
The versatile batsman has a great record at this venue, where he scored five half centuries in the last matches played here. We expect another half-century from Devilliers against Delhi, as his record is quite good against them.
The Banglore leg-spinner is the only consistent Bowler in the side for Virat so far in the season and he presently holds the purple cap. The record against Delhi is also in his favor to continue his good form, as he dismissed Dhawan twice and Prithvi Shaw once in the last 5 encounters against them.
The Right arm pacer is in good form in the last 5 matches, he picked 7 wickets at an average of 22. He also has a good record in his short against Bangalore batsmen, as he dismissed AB De Villiers and Parthiv Patel once each in the last 3 encounters against them.
