DC vs RCB Pitch Report & Weather Conditions
In the last few matches played at The Wankhede, the pitch has really provided a lot of help to the bowlers. Considering how other pitches in Mumbai are favoring the batsmen, this pitch has produced low scores so far. In the last match played here between RR vs LSG, the team batting second was not able to chase a decent target of 165 runs and it is apparent that this pitch will be tough to bat in this upcoming DC vs RCB match. Still, due to the dew factor, the toss-winning team would love to bowl first.
The temperature will be around 30 degrees with clear and sunny weather.
DC Team Preview
Delhi Capitals openers Prithvi Shaw and David Warner smashed the fifties in the match against KKR and they made 51 and 61 respectively. Their powerful hitting helped the team to put a huge total of 215 on the board.
David Warner found the form in only his 2nd match of IPL 2022 and these two batsmen will be expected to smash the RCB bowlers all around the park.
The poor form of Lalit Yadav and Rovman Powell makes DC middle order a bit weak. Captain Rishabh Pant made 27 quick runs in the last match against KKR but he has a lot more potential and can lead the way for the team with the bat in the next match against RCB.
On a pitch that was excellent for batsmen, the bowlers Shardul Thakur, Khaleel Ahmed, and Kuldeep Yadav were outstanding and will look to add more wickets to their tally in this DC vs RCB match.
RCB Team Preview
Royal Challengers Bangalore have 3 points in 5 matches so far and if they are able to win this match against DC they will have 5 points and will fix a spot in the top four of the IPL 2022 points table.
The last match of RCB was against CSK which was high scoring game as CSK made scored 215 batting first and RCB too came a little close to the target but they fell short by 23 runs.
RCB bowling looked lackluster in the absence of Harshal Patel but he will miss this match also. In his absence, Josh Hazlewood has a lot of responsibility on his shoulders to perform with the ball. W Hasaranga and Siraj are also expected to be the main contributors with the ball in this match against DC.
Faf du Plessis scored 88 runs in the match against PBKS on 27th March but he has not clicked with the bat since then. A powerful knock from him and Virat Kohli will provide real motivation to the team.
Shahbaz Ahmed, Suyash Prabhudessai, and Dinesh Karthik have played their part well in the tournament so far and they can turn the things in the team’s favor by batting against DC.
