In the 22nd match of the Indian Premier League, Royal Challengers Bangalore will be facing Delhi Capitals at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad at 7:30 PM IST. DC and RCB have acquired the second and third spot respectively with eight points each.
In the head-to-head competition between the two teams, Royal Challengers Bangalore has the upper hand as they have been victorious against Delhi Capitals 14 times and lost against them on 10 occasions. The two teams have been in roaring form so far in the tournament and they will be counting on their key players to win on Tuesday. Let’s have a look at the three game-changers who could play a crucial role in the RCB vs DC fixture:
- Shikhar Dhawan
Shikhar Dhawan has been in roaring form since the start of the season, he is also the purple cap holder after amassing 259 runs in just five innings. The southpaw has been giving a solid start to DC with the bat which proves game-changing for the team. The young DC captain Rishabh Pant will be hoping that his most experienced campaigner will play an important role against RCB.
2. Glenn Maxwell
RCB’s new recruit Glenn Maxwell has proved highly beneficial for their team so far as the middle-order batsman has scored 198 runs in four innings at an average of 49.50. Maxwell has helped RCB in accelerating their innings in the middle overs. The RCB camp will be expecting a big inning from Maxwell.
- AB De Villiers
AB De Villiers has been the backbone of RCB’s batting line up and has been in good touch this season. He scored 129 runs in four innings so far in the tournament at a healthy strike rate. De Villiers’ innings of 76 off 34 balls at the MA Chidambaram Stadium on a slow track against Kolkata Knight Riders proves that he is in fine touch. Virat Kohli would count on his deputy to play a crucial role against DC.
