Delhi Daredevils and Royal Challengers Bangalore would play for pride when the two clash at Feroz Shah Kotla in IPL 2018 on Saturday. Both Delhi and Bangalore are out of the race for play-offs. Now, the race is between the bottom-placed teams to not to finish last. Both Delhi Daredevils and RCB have three wins out of 11 and 10 games respectively. The Daredevils, who have consistently performed well with the bat, have failed in the bowling department on numerous occasions and have thus won only three out of the eleven matches they have played so far. The Royal Challengers Bangalore, too, have had a season to forget, winning just three out of the ten matches they have played so far. They have faced issues in all three departments of the game. When their batting clicked, their bowling did not and vice-versa. RCB have lost the home clash against Delhi Daredevils. RCB would eye revenge in the away clash against DD. RCB are struggling to be competitive and are down in the dumps at the moment.
Best economical pick – Delhi Daredevils have found a very able batsman in Prithvi Shaw this season. The youngster has been very impressive and had already scored two fifties this year. The kind of form he is in, the exposure of the IPL will only help him get better in his game.
Top captains & vice captains – Rishabh Pant has been in terrific form, slamming a brilliant ton in the last clash against Sunrisers Hyderabad, but in a losing cause. He has struck three fifties and one ton so far. Pant also became the Orange cap holder after that innings. AB de Villiers was in top form for RCB and held the Orange Cap for some time too. However, he was ruled out for two matches due to a viral fever and failed to make an impact in his comeback game against CSK. He has recovered now and RCB will bank on him to lead them to victory.
Smart pick – Umesh Yadav has been RCB's best bowler so far, and probably the best bowler in the Powerplay in the entire tournament. His ability to pick up quick wickets at the beginning of the innings has given RCB hope in almost all the matches they have played so far.
Cautious Pick – Brendon McCullum has played 6 games so far in IPL 2018 and scored 127 runs at an average of 21. He is yet to make a match-winning contribution for RCB this season. Though he had few good starts, he failed to convert them into big scores. He struggled to adapt to conditions and was rightly dropped from the team after a series of poor scores.
My XI – Rishabh Pant (Captain), AB de Villiers (Vice-Captain), Prithvi Shaw, Umesh Yadav, ViratKohli, Mohammed Siraj, Tim Southee, Colin de Grandhomme, ShreyasIyer, Quinton de Kock, Glenn Maxwell
