The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) must have been gutted after losing their previous match. They did everything right barring bowling well to Andre Russell and that was enough for them to lose their fifth match on the trot. The chances are running out for them and another home game presents a great opportunity for them to get two points on the board. The Delhi Capitals (DC) are their opponents who are also not having the best of times in the last few matches.
AB de Villiers has looked in great touch this season. Unfortunately, both his half-centuries have come in the losing cause and he will be raring to get back to the winning ways. De Villiers’ feet are moving well and his knock against the KKR was a testament to the same. If the pitch is flat, expect another blitzkrieg from the South African superstar.
Record against the opposition (DC):
AB de Villiers is facing the Delhi Capitals at the perfect time. He is hitting the ball well and has an exceptional record against them. In nine outings, he has amassed 396 runs at a staggering average of 79.2. The Mr 360 could turn out to be the reason for RCB’s maiden win.
