Today Match Prediction for DC vs RCB: The Narendra Modi Stadium will host its second game of Vivo IPL 2021 between Delhi Capitals and Royal Challengers Bangalore on Tuesday. Both teams have played well in the tournament thus far. However, the advantage would be with Delhi as they are coming on the back of a win against SRH. Bangalore, on the other hand, suffered a defeat against CSK in their last game. Nevertheless, both sides are placed at the top half of the table and would look to strengthen their position in the quest for a playoff berth.

Today Match Prediction for DC vs RCB

Royal Challengers Bangalore had a good game against CSK until the 19 overs in the first innings. However, they lost the plot after that. Harshal Patel conceded 37 runs in the last over, which helped CSK put on a mammoth 191-run total in the first innings. RCB couldn’t chase it down and thereby suffered their first defeat this season. They would look to get perform better and get back to winning ways.

Despite conceding too many runs in the final over, Harshal Patel would be RCB’s biggest bet in the death over. He is likely to continue to bowl in the death overs and is a vital player in your dream11 team. Yuzvendra Chahal picked 1 for 24 in the last game. And, with the Narendra Modi stadium assisting spinners, he could be a good player to have in your fantasy team. Glenn Maxwell had an off day against CSK. However, given the form he is in, he too is a must-have player. Besides, Virat Kohli, Devdutt Padikkal and AB de Villiers are in good touch.

Delhi Capitals won the last game in a super over and a lot of credit should go to Prithvi Shaw. He has been in sensational form with the bat. Against a solid RCB attack, a lot will be on the shoulders of Prithvi and Shikhar Dhawan. Both are in good form and one could expect a good start from the duo. Rishabh Pant has played a good cameo but a big knock is due from the skipper. The game against RCB might be that day. The seamers of KKR loved bowling at the stadium in the last game. Considering their performances, Kagiso Rabada is also likely to showcase a good performance and Anrich Nortje might also be included in the team.
