Ground News

Heavy domestic cricket in Karnataka during the recent years has produced a lot of top notch player to IPL. But the Bengaluru pitch seems to have gotten tired. From a batting beauty it has dramatically become a bowling paradise.

Final Thoughts

Two poor bowling units. Both batting units are struggling for consistency. RCB’s numbers a home are skewed as DD were historically poorer chasing totals. With RCB’s bowling being weak this time, chasing will be of advantageous to DD. Bangalore too wouldn’t mind a chase.

Preview From Other Sources

CricBuzz Preview

There is a sense of evenness to Royal Challengers Bangalore’s home fixture against Delhi Daredevils on Saturday (April 21). Beyond the similar statistics so far [4 games, 1 win, 3 defeats], the bottom two sides – separated by Net Run Rate – have identical top-order attributes as well as bowling frailties. And a couple of weeks into the tournament, they’re both already in a race against time to make amends, lest eulogies of their respective campaigns start getting written, terming their top-heavy nature as the reason for the ultimate failure.

RCB’s bowling woes are slightly more pronounced than their opposition’s. Not for the first time, they’ve raked up the worst death-overs numbers [economy of 12.50] and are a team that is there for the taking even if opponents go against the tried and tested formula of fielding first. Two out of the three losses for RCB have come in chases, even as the ultimate chase-master – Virat Kohli – has already amassed 200-odd runs. On both those occasions, RCB have had to go after targets well in excess of 200, which proved to be out of reach even for the RCB ensemble.

DD were undone by DLS method calculation in one of their rain-truncated fixtures, but their defeats too have been down to inconsistent bowling performances. Even their victory involved a Jason Roy special in Wankhede after Mumbai Indians put up 200 runs while batting first.

Two big-hitting top-orders at a relatively small ground – Chinnaswamy Stadium – means a run-fest in the offing that should put bums on seats on the weekend, but as far as the teams are concerned, the result might come down to which bowling attack commits fewer errors along the way.

When: Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Delhi Daredevils, April 21 at 8PM IST

Where: M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru

What to expect: Thunderstorms during the first half of the day. The forecast says there will be partly cloudy skies during late evening when the game will be played, but there is a threat of rain earlier in the day. Neither teams could indulge in practice on the eve of the fixture owing to a downpour in the evening.

Team News

Royal Challengers Bangalore: Virat Kohli and the RCB think-tank should be inclined towards tinkering further as they’re in desperate need of quick results to stop their season heading down the same road as 2017. Death bowling has been the worry in the last two fixtures, with Kohli not being able to rotate his bowlers well. With Sarfaraz Khan not yielding desired results in the middle order, RCB could opt for an extra bowler in leggie Murugan Ashwin to add more weight to the bowling department.

Probable XI: Quinton de Kock, Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Mandeep Singh, Corey Anderson, Washington Sundar, Sarfaraz Khan/Murugan Ashwin, Chris Woakes, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal

Delhi Daredevils: Mohammed Shami has joined up with the Delhi Daredevils squad again after having to stay back in Kolkata for a few extra days. He’s not had the best of starts to this year’s IPL season, but is likely to retain his spot. It will be interesting to see if all-rounder Vijay Shankar is persisted with despite his ordinary returns so far, or if Gurkeerat Singh Mann or even Jayant Yadav are preferred. Daredevils’ assistant coach Praveen Amre reckoned any decision on changes to the line-up has been deferred due to the rain on the eve of the fixture and the anticipated showers on the match day.

Probable XI: Jason Roy, Gautam Gambhir, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Glenn Maxwell, Chris Morris, Gurkeerat Singh Mann/Jayant Yadav, Rahul Tewatia, Mohammed Shami, Shahbaz Nadeem, Trent Boult

Head-to-Head

RCB 11 – 6 DD [One tie (RCB win), one NR]

– Since 2011, RCB have won 11 out of the 12 completed games against DD, including a Super Over win.

Team Record at the venue

RCB 3 – 3 DD (One tie, one NR)

Interesting face-offs

Kohli vs DD: 16 innings, 661 runs, Avg 73.44, SR 138.28, Seven 50s, HS 99

Gambhir vs RCB: 19 innings, 644 runs, Avg 33.89, SR 136.73, Six 50s, HS 93 – the most runs by a player vs RCB in IPL

Maxwell vs Chahal: In Australia’s tour to India last year, Chahal dismissed Maxwell four times in 18 balls, conceding 14 runs. In IPL, Chahal has got the better of Maxwell twice in 22 balls giving away 20 runs.

Approaching milestones

Umesh Yadav needs two more wickets to reach the milestone of 100 wickets in IPL.

Venue trends

AB de Villiers vs DD at Chinnaswamy: 64(42)*, 39(32), 33(17), 55(33)

The economy rate in death overs at Chinnaswamy reads 10.14, 13.00, 11,53, 12.30, 8.62 and 12.48 (last) in the last six years.

What they said:

“I think the big problem for us has been that we haven’t been able to put in a full performance in – with both bat and ball. We need to play well for 40 overs, not just parts of those or anything. Death bowling is something we definitely improve and continue to work on.” – Chris Woakes on what RCB need to do to turnaround the early rut.

“In T20 format, mainly the decisions are taken on the spot. That’s the way the captain has to be one step ahead of the game. And that’s the quality Gautam’s got.” – Pravin Amre on what Gautam Gambhir brings to the DD table.

Big picture

Four games into the season, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Daredevils occupy the bottom two spots on the IPL table. It’s not an unfamiliar position for either team. Both are coming off heavy defeats, and both have pressing issues to sort out if they are to make anything of this season.

Bowling has been Daredevils’ failing so far: they have been the most expensive Powerplay attack this season, going at 10.75 an over in this phase, and the second-worst team in the middle overs (8.17). RCB have been just as bad: they have the worst economy rate of all IPL teams in the middle overs (8.47) and the death (12.5) this season.

On the batting front, Daredevils have done okay, barring a disappointing chase against Kolkata Knight Riders, and by and large have their best line-up sorted out. Not so in RCB’s case: how else would you explain Virat Kohli playing for net run rate as soon as his team was two down in a big chase against Mumbai Indians?

RCB will need to find a way to distribute Quinton de Kock, Kohli and AB de Villiers effectively through their batting order, determine how to make the best of a not-too-convincing second line of Indian batsmen, and figure out who among Brendon McCullum, Corey Anderson, Colin de Grandhomme, Tim Southee and Moeen Ali will most effectively plug whichever hole remains after attending to the first two tasks.

Saturday’s match is the first of four home games in a row for RCB, which gives them an opportunity to play back-to-back games in similar conditions and get some consistency going. The weather, however, might not be their friend: it rained on the eve of the match, and more showers are expected on gameday.

In the news

  • Rain forced both teams to cancel their training sessions on the eve of the match.
  • An illness had kept Tim Southee from joining the RCB squad in India, but he has now arrived in Bengaluru.

The likely XIs

Royal Challengers Bangalore: 1 Quinton de Kock (wk), 2 Virat Kohli (capt), 3 AB de Villiers, 4 Mandeep Singh, 5 Sarfaraz Khan, 6 Corey Anderson/Colin de Grandhomme, 7 Washington Sundar, 8 Chris Woakes, 9 Umesh Yadav, 10 Mohammed Siraj/Kulwant Khejroliya, 11 Yuzvendra Chahal

Delhi Daredevils: 1 Gautam Gambhir (capt), 2 Jason Roy, 3 Shreyas Iyer, 4 Rishabh Pant (wk), 5 Glenn Maxwell, 6 Vijay Shankar, 7 Chris Morris, 8 Rahul Tewatia, 9 Mohammed Shami, 10 Shahbaz Nadeem, 11 Trent Boult

Strategy punt

Jason Roy’s vulnerability to legspin is well known (12 dismissals in 22 T20 innings since 2015, while scoring 123 off 112 balls) and it is quite likely RCB will look to exploit it by opening their bowling with Yuzvendra Chahal. With this in mind, Daredevils could perhaps promote Rishabh Pant to partner Roy at the top of the order. In T20s since 2015, Pant has scored 128 off 87 balls against legspin, while only being dismissed three times. This could force a scenario where RCB either hold back Chahal or risk him coming up against Pant.

Gautam Gambhir, while generally reckoned to be a good player of spin, hasn’t been nearly as effective as Pant against legspin in T20s since 2015: 180 off 157 balls, nine dismissals.

Stats that matter

  • Since the 2011 season, RCB have a 10-1 win-loss record against Daredevils
  • AB de Villiers loves to bat against Chris Morris. In five T20 meetings, he has scored 50 off 21 balls against his compatriot without being dismissed.
  • Glenn Maxwell, on the other hand, has poor T20 records against two key RCB bowlers: 26 off 25 balls with three dismissals against Yuzvendra Chahal, and 17 off 19 balls with three dismissals against Umesh Yadav.
  • Rishabh Pant (3.25 balls per boundary) and Maxwell (3.33) have been two of the four most frequent boundary-hitters in IPL 2018, among batsmen who have faced a minimum of 30 balls. The other two in the top four are Andre Russell (2.90) and Dwayne Bravo (3.27).
  • Umesh has been phenomenal against left-hand batsmen this season, conceding only 30 runs to them in 31 balls while taking three wickets.

Fantasy picks

In his last three innings, Quinton de Kock has scored 45, 26 and 19, showing glimpses of his best form without really being able to translate that into a big score. Perhaps Saturday is the day that happens, when he faces off against his former team.

Quotes

“In IPL, it never happens that you get a four-day break in between [matches]. We utilised that to gel together and have brain-storming meetings. Confidence is there because of how we beat Mumbai.”
Delhi Daredevils assistant coach Pravin Amre
