RCB v DC: 56th IPL Match Preview:

Royal Challengers Bangalore's top four batters have done brilliantly in the 2nd leg. Virat Kohli and Devdutt Padikkal have given good starts, while KS Bharat has been impressive at number 3. Glenn Maxwell has been the star of the batting lineup. AB De Villiers looked good in the last match as well. 


Yuzvendra Chahal and Harshal Patel have wreaked havoc in oppositions' batting lineup consistently. 

Delhi Capitals' batting hasn't been in the best of forms. A lot depends on Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant in the middle overs since Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan haven't been consistent. Sam Billings might come in place of Ripal Patel in this match. 

The bowling has been world-class. Avesh Khan has been the pick of the bowlers, he is consistently taking wickets and not giving loose runs. Anrich Nortje has been brilliant as well.
