IPL 2017, RCB vs DD Prediction: In the 5th match of the IPL 2017, Royal Challengers Bangalore take on the Delhi Daredevils at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium on today, 8 April. This match will feature the two teams that are suffering a lot from injuries. The Royal Challengers Bangalore would look to bounce back after defeats against Sunrisers Hyderabad in their opening match of the IPL 2017 season. Both the team would love to win this match and get those two points on the table.
Both the teams have a long list of injured players that have reduced their chance of winning this year’s edition. RCB is missing Virat Kohli, AB de Villers and inform KL Rahul while Delhi Daredevils will be missing JP Duminy, Quinton de Kock and Angelo Mathews.
Royal Challengers Bangalore will play their second match of this season. In the first match, they were up against the defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad. They were beaten comprehensible in their first match. There were many loopholes in their department which they need to overcome in the second match. Their batting performance was average but rest of the two departments, bowling and fielding were below par. They will again lead by Aussies Shane Watson.
RCB have good bowling and batting lineup and if they start to fire then it will be trouble for the Delhi team. There will be the huge responsibility on the shoulders of captain Shane Watson and Chris Gayle to give RCB their first win of the tournament.
On the other hand, Delhi side will be starting their campaign in the IPL. They are the one side who have failed to impress in any season of IPL. They will start this year again as an underdog. Before the start of the tournament, they have received a major setback in the form of injury to Quinton de Kock and JP Duminy. Delhi team will depend on the young players from India who will have the chance to impress the selectors by their performance.
They will be led by their captain Zahir khan who will also lead the bowling attack of Delhi side. They have the likes Carlos Braithwaite, Amit Mishra, Rabada, Chris Morris, Sam Billings, Karun Nair. These guys need to step up and take the charge in the absence of the key players. Their bowling looks stronger their batting lineup and their strategy will be to restrict the opposition to the lowest possible total.
