Delhi Daredevils will host the Royal Challengers Bangalore in a nothing to lose game for them in the 45th match of IPL 2018 at the Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi.
For RCB also, it seems really difficult that they will qualify for the playoffs after Rajasthan Royals winning their last match against the CSK. Both, RCB and DD are placed at the second last and last spot at the Points Table with three wins each.
That old story for DD has continued in this season as well for them as they yet again failed to qualify for the playoffs and not only that, they are placed at the last position in the Points Table. It has been not much different story for RCB as well as they are placed just a position above Delhi.
Delhi Daredevils are unexpected to make any changes in their playing XI as they played good cricket in the last match against SRH, especially the century from the bat of Rishabh Pant. RCB, on the other hand will look forward to put their everything to win this match.
Few changes that are Bangalore expected to make are either of Brendon McCullum or Quinton de Kock may come back as Moeen Ali didn’t perform well in the chance given to him. This will lead to a forced change as Washington Sundar might come back in place of Manan Vohra.
RCB will definitely start as the favourites after seeing their record against DD as they have won 12 out of 13 matches played between these two teams. Also this is RCB skipper, Virat Kohli’s actual home ground for which he is well acquainted with.
