IPL 2018: Match 45, DD vs RCB: Teams to play for pride at the Kotla

Both these teams are at the bottom of the points table.

Both teams are potentially out of  the Playoff race.

Delhi Daredevils will host Royal Challengers Bangalore in a dead rubber of a contest at the Feroz Shah Kotla tonight. Having lost the lst game against the Sunrisers Hyderabad, Delhi Daredevils are out of the playoff race while Royal Challengers Bangalore as well are potentially out of the contest. 

There is a possibility that Virat Kohli might miss out in tonight' game against the Daredevils. Also, there might be a few other changes too in the line up for RCB. Moeen Ali who failed to deliver in his last game might make way for Brendon McCullum or Quinton De Kock. Also Washington Sundar might come in place of Manan Vohra. 

DD, on the other hand, will be banking on their top three with the bat, Pant, Iyer and Shaw has showed class through the season for Delhi and they will hope to keep it going. All eyes will be on Pant who is coming off from an unbeaten century against the Sunrisers Hyderabad. 

With power hitters from both teams, it's the batsmen who will be hogging the limelight in tonight's contest which becomes a must win for the Royal Challengers Bangalore. 

Playing conditions will be hot and humid in Delhi with no threat of rain whatsoever.
