- DD will look to take advantage of RCB’s form at the moment.
- RCB will have to rev up their game on Saturday if they want to yield better results.
A worried Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will take on Delhi Daredevils (DD) in their second game of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2017, at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore on Saturday. Delhi Daredevils have a golden opportunity to make a winning start to their IPL 2017 campaign against a depleted RCB side.
It was evident that RCB missed their two superstars Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers in the middle order as they threw away the match against Sunrisers Hyderabad in the opening game of IPL 2017 on Wednesday. Chris Gayle, Shane Watson, Travis Head and Tymal Mills, their foreign recruits, hardly made any impact and that is not a good sign early on in the IPL 2017.
The Daredevils also have some issues with their squad as they will be missing the likes of JP Duminy, Quinton de Kock, Shreyas Iyer owing to injuries. Despite that, youngsters like Karun Nair, Rishabh Pant and Sanju Samson are expected to step up to the plate as their side needs their contribution dearly.
DD have also bolstered their bowling attack by adding Kagiso Rabada and Pat Cummins to their squad. Zaheer Khan and Mohammed Shami are also there to take care of the fast bowling department.
Meanwhile, RCB will have to make amends to their mistakes they committed against SRH. Their fielding was all over the place, they dropped catches, overthrows and it was not a very pleasing sight for Kohli from the dugout.
