Things are getting interesting as IPL is entering its mid-games zone. Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Capitals will face each other in the 20th game of the IPL at M Chinnaswamy Stadium on 15th April from 3:30 pm onwards. RCB have won one of the three games, while DC is yet to open their points tally after 4 games.
Royal Challengers faced a severe attack from LSG in their last game. Batting first, RCB scored 212 runs for the loss of two wickets. RCB’s all-top-order batter Virat Kohli (61), Faf du Plessis (79*), and Glenn Maxwell (59) scored half-centuries. Mohammed Siraj and Wayne Parnell produced some nail-biting bowling from the RCB side in the second innings to reduce LSG to 23 for losing 3 wickets. But Nicolas Puran and Marcus Stoinis scored quick half-centuries to take the win away from the RCB. RCB lost the game by a wicket on the game's final ball. They are seventh in the points table with 2 points in three games.
Delhi Capitals faced Mumbai Indians in their last game. Skipper David Warner and Axar Patel scored half-centuries to guide DC to a respectable total of 172. MI’s opener started the chase with a 71-run partnership to give DC bowlers a tight slap. But the spinners brought them back into the giving less than 6 runs in 8 overs. The ice-cool Tim David scored the required 2 runs in the final ball of the game for MI to beat DC by 6 wickets. This was DC’s fourth consecutive defeat of the season. They are at the bottom of the points table with 0 points.
RCB is having a great run against DC. Batting first, RCB scored 189 runs after half-centuries from Glenn Maxwell and Dinesh Karthik. In the last outing, RCB overpowered the visitors by 17 runs. David Warner’s 66 runs off 38 balls couldn’t rescue DC, as they scored 172 runs in 20 overs. Josh Hazelwood and Siraj took 3 and 2 wickets respectively.
David Warner has a strike rate of 163.72 - his most against any team he has played five or more games.
Royal Challengers are living up to their legacy by producing some thrilling encounters. Every season, they come up with a strong batting lineup but don’t have the bowling attack to keep the opponents on the leash. This season is not any different. The RCB top-order is in tremendous form. Both Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis have scored 2 half-centuries each in the first three games for RCB., and now Glenn Maxwell has also joined the party. Kohli has scored 164 runs in three games at a strike rate of 147.75. He has an excellent record against DC. In 27 games, Kohli has 949 runs at an average of 52.72 and a strike rate of 135.57. He will be our choice for the top batter.
Though du Plessis is RCB’s leading run scorer with 175 runs, his record against DC is not eye-catchy. 350 runs in 15 games at a strike rate of 115.89 is not ideal for the RCB opener to look back. Glenn Maxwell had a half-century against DC in their last outing. So does Dinesh Karthik. It was Karthik who took the game away from DC with 66 runs in 34 balls. He strikes at 142.59 against DC. Batting-wise, RCB won’t be having much problem against DC.
Wanindu Hasaranga will likely make a comeback after missing the first three games. Hasaranga was the second leading wicket-taker in the last IPL, with 26 wickets in 16 matches. This means David Willey will be sitting in the dugout. Mohammed Siraj will lead the pace attack with Wayne Parnell and Harshal Patel. Both Siraj and Parnell took 3 wickets each in the last game. Hopefully, Harshal Patel will forget his failure to run out Ravi Bishnoi at the non-strikers' end in the previous game.
Key Players: Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis, Mohammed Siraj.

DC is the worst team in this IPL. They need help in both the batting and bowling unit. David Warner is DC’s leading run-scorer with 209 runs in 4 games. But his strike rate put DC in trouble. Warner’s strike rate is 114.83. And it’s mainly because no other batter is playing the anchor role. So the skipper has to keep his wicket at any cost. Hopefully, the problem will get solved if Prithwi Shaw, Manish Pandey, and Yash Dhull bring the runs against RCB. Shaw has 34 runs in 4 games this season.
The return of Mustafizur Rehman has forced DC to keep Rillee Roussow out of the playing eleven. Rovman Powell must take the load on his shoulder to let his captain score freely. Axar Patel is the only other batter from DC who has lived his role. Patel scored 64 runs in the last game at a strike rate above 200. But the all-rounder has taken just one wicket in 3 innings, bowling his full quota of 12 overs.
DC’s bowling has hit a new low. The bowlers have taken just seventeen wickets out of a possible 40 in the four games. Mukesh Kumar is DC’s leading wicket-taker with 4 wickets, but his economy is above 10. On the other hand, last season's leading wicket-taker from Delhi, Kuldeep Yadav, took just two wickets in four games. The same is true with Anrich Nortje, whose pace hasn’t produced the desired outcome for DC.
Key Players: David Warner, Mustafizur Rahman, Axar Patel.

The weather will be clear. The temperature will range between 20 and 33. The wind will be flowing from the west at 10-25 kmh. The stadium has a reputation for being one of the most batting-friendly grounds in India. The pitch at M Chinnaswamy Stadium is generally flat and offers good bounce and carry to the fast bowlers. The outfield is usually quick, and the ball travels well, which makes it an ideal venue for high-scoring games.
The pitch at M Chinnaswamy Stadium is known to assist spinners in the game's later stages. The pitch tends to wear out quickly, and the spinners get significant turns and bounce, making it difficult for batters to score freely. However, the early overs of the game can be quite favorable for the batters as the ball comes onto the bat nicely.
The 20th T20 of the IPL 2023 will be played at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium on 10th April from 3:30 pm onwards. The venue holds a capacity of 40000 spectators and has hosted 25 Tests, 37 ODIs & 16 T20Is so far. RCB scored 212 runs (their highest total) against LSG in the last game at this venue.
In 16 T20Is, the team batting second has won the game on 9 occasions, while the team batting first has won 6 times. Seven of the last 9 IPL games have been chased down at this venue. The team winning the toss should bowl first.
Though both teams suffer more than all other teams, RCB stands a better chance in this game. Their top order is in form, and their lead bowler returns in the game against DC. While DC bowlers have claimed 17 wickets out of 40, RCB has lost just 14 wickets in three games. This means it is ideal for RCB to turn the tables in their direction. After suffering at the hands of KKR spinners, RCB did their homework against LSG and kept their wickets white, scoring at a run rate of 10 per over.
We predict that Royal Challengers Bangalore will defeat Delhi Capitals.
