Royal Challengers Bangalore Vs Delhi Daredevils 5th Match of IPL
Question in detail
Royal Challengers Bangalore Vs Delhi Daredevils, Match No. 5, Bengaluru: Without their key contributors Kohli and de Villiers, RCB couldn't quite click in the opener against SRH. With much of the responsibilities falling on Gail and Watson's shoulders, RCB's chase looked a lost one after two of their remaining pillars fell drastically. Chris Gail did get the blasting start, but failed to convert it into a bigger knock. While bowling, RCB used all their available resources to deal with in-form Yuvraj Singh who was at his brutal best and slammed a 27-ball 62. Moreover, a few drop catches in the middle worked SRH's ways to the win. Despite losing their first game, Challengers would be hopeful of becoming the winner of RCB Vs DD, match No. 5.
It was aggression if something was missing in RCB's camp in the opening game. RCB got off to a good start with 54 runs in the power play, but dual losses in six balls raised the need of a rebuild. Travis Head and Kedar Jadhav gave a sizzling half-century stand to keep their team abreast of the required run-rate. Jadhav's run out at that point of time was disappointing from RCB's perspective. Afterward, no other batsmen could even touch a double digit number. If Challengers want to become the winner of RCB Vs DD match, they would need an improved show from their batsmen.
In Royal Challengers Bangalore Vs Delhi Daredevils match, DD will take the field in without JP Dumini and Quinton de Kock. Despite missing two off their batting mainstays, Delhi claims to have a good squad that can turn their fortunes. It's unfair to write us off, says Delhi's lead spinner Amit Mishra. Delhi finished at the bottom-half of the table in the last four seasons. They made it to the playoff round last time in 2012. Written off largely ahead of their first clash against RCB, Delhi is confident enough to put up a better show this year.
Will RCB make the most of their home conditions against Delhi Daredevils in 5th match of IPL 10?
