Royal Challengers Bangalore will square off versus Delhi Capitals in match no. 27 of the IPL 2022 at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. RCB lost their last game against Chennai Super Kings by 23 runs while DC are coming into the contest on the back of a victory against Kolkata Knight Riders by 44 runs.
Royal Challengers Bangalore will face Delhi Capitals at Wankhede Stadium on Saturday to grab two points to improve their position in the points table. Delhi Capitals will look forward to continuing their winning momentum and register a victory over the opposition.
RCB lost their last match against Chennai Super Kings by 23 runs. Batting first, CSK posted a total of 216/4. The team was unable to chase the target and ended up scoring 193/9. RCB missed Harshal Patel badly in the last game and they will hope for his return to the squad as soon as possible. Also, the pacers of the team Mohammed Siraj and Aakash Deep haven't been very much effective and so the pace department might look fragile in absence of Harshal Patel or Josh Hazlewood.
DC won their last game against Kolkata Knight Riders comfortably by 44 runs. The opening pair of Prthivi Shaw and David Warner wreaked havoc in the game scoring 93 runs from 52 balls for the first wicket. Both of them scored half-centuries and the team posted a total of 215/5. Bowlers restricted the opposition on 171 and they won the game.
RCB lost their opening game of the IPL 2022 and then won three consecutive games. The team then ended up losing last game against CSK. DC made a winning start to IPL 2022 but lost two games in a row after that. The team again registered a victory versus KKR
