Royal Challengers Bangalore will play against Delhi Capitals on Monday at Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. Royal Challengers Bangalore have made their journey difficult after two back to back defeats against Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad. RCB will have still had their fortunes in their own hand. They need to win this match to secure their place in the playoffs. They will go to the second place in the league table if they win against Delhi Capitals in this match.

On the other hand, Delhi Capitals will have to regroup themselves. They have completely lost the way at this point in time. Delhi Capitals have been searching for the win for last five matches. The things are not going in their favour. The batsmen are completely out of form. They are low on confidence. So, it will certainly be difficult for them to pull things off. However, their equation is also similar to RCB. A win will see them through to the playoffs and they can fix their date against Mumbai Indians in the qualifier 1.

Probable Winner: Royal Challengers Bangalore

Royal Challengers Bangalore’s batting is totally dependent on two batsmen. Virat Kohli and AB De Villiers are two key players for RCB. The other players are not delivering well for them with the bat. The overseas bowlers are not performing well. Dale Steyn has not been at his best. Isuru Udana is playing in his place. However, he has not delivered also at the crucial stage of the match.

Delhi Capitals have a problem with their top order and will want to resolve that quickly. They are constantly changing their opening pair. Ajinkya Rahane has been given chance for few matches in place of Prithvi Shaw. Prithvi Shaw has also not been at form as well. Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje have been bowling quite well throughout the whole tournament. The management will certainly hope them to deliver a similar sort of performance in this match.
