IPL2021`s league phase is coming to an end with last 2 matches played at a same time as a dress rehearsal for the next season. RCB take on the table toppers Delhi Capitals with a slight chance of finishing in the top-2 and having two cracks at the final. But they need to win by a big margin of nearly 100+ runs to get ahead of CSK in the NRR. DC on the other hand are assured of a table top finish even if they lose this match. They are 2 points clear of the maximum points the next team could get in this IPL.

Royal Challengers Bangalore Preview

RCB batting has been hugely carried by Glenn Maxwell in the last 4-5 matches. Virat Kohli and Devdutt Padikkal have got starts but failed to convert them into big scores. Ab De Villiers have been often left with the lower order and they are having a musical chair for the No.3 position in this season so far.

RCB bowling has been superb so far with Harshal Patel and Yuzivendra Chahal leading the pace and spin attacks of the team. Mohammed Siraj, Shahbaz Ahmed, and Dan Christian have been excellent in the middle overs with good control and accuracy. George Garton might be replaced by Wanidu Hasaranga or Kyle Jamieson in this match.

Top players to bet on:

Glenn Maxwell – Maxwell has three fifties and a superb 40-run cameo in the last 4 matches. He has been striking the ball easily when other batters are struggling on slow surfaces especially against spinners.

Harshal Patel – Harshal patel has picked up 29 wickets in this season and leads the bowling charts by a huge distance. His slower balls and variations are tough to crack in the death overs and he has been prolific in the final overs.

Royal Challengers Bangalore Predicted Playing XI:

Virat Kohli (c), Devdutt Padikkal, Srikar Bharat (wk), Glenn Maxwell, AB de Villiers, Daniel Christian, Shahbaz Ahmed, George Garton/Wanidu Hasaranga, Harshal Patel, Mohammed Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal

Delhi Capitals Preview

Delhi Capitals scampered across the chase in a tense finish in the last match against CSK last night with Shimron Hetmyer`s 18-ball 28 runs proving to be vital in final overs. Shikhar Dhawan and Shreyas Iyer have been their top run scorers this season and has lead their team to crucial victories. Rishabh pant and Prithvi Shaw are yet to make a big contribution so far.

They have one of the strongest bowling units with good experienced pace trio of Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, and Avesh khan alongside spinners Ravi Ashwin and Axar Patel. Lack of sixth bowling option in the absence of Marcus Stoinis is their biggest worry in the bowling department.

Top players to bet on:

Shikhar Dhawan – Dhawan has 501 runs at a strike rate of 130 with 4 fifties this season. He has been given excellent attacking starts in the powerplay in the slow surfaces to put their team in a good position in the batting department.

Axar Patel – Axar patel has 14 wickets at an economy rate of just 6 RPO in the 9 matches he played this season so far. He has figures of 3/21 & 2/18 in the last 2 matches and won Man of the match awards in both matches.

Delhi Capitals Predicted Playing XI:

Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Ripal Patel/Marcus Stoinis, Shimron Hetmyer, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Avesh Khan, Anrich Nortje

Weather Conditions

Dubai will have hot and humid conditions and the dew might settle down in the second innings and make life little harder for bowlers to grip the ball.

Venue Details

Dubai was on a slower side with tacky bounce in the last match as both scored just 130-odd runs. Pacers and spinners both got purchase from the pitch and strangled the batters easily. We expect the average scores to be around 140-150 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing is the best option and the last 5 matches have been won by the teams batting second. We expect both captains to continue the trend in this match too.

Delhi Capitals have a strong bowling attack with 5 quality bowlers and has restricted CSK and MI to less than 140 runs in their last 2 matches. Their batting has been scampering across the chases with vital cameos and batters are yet to put up a big score might be a cause of concern. RCB failed in the chase last night and they rely heavily of Maxwell in the middle overs to score runs. They have a good bowling attack compared to all the other seasons and will be under pressure to win by a big margin to have a chance to finish inside top-2. We expect Delhi capitals to win this match.
