IPL Update: Bangalore And Delhi Eyeing For The Top Spot
Delhi Capitals will lock horns against Royal Challengers Bangalore at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Delhi Capitals are currently at the top of the table with a better run rate. Both teams have won same number of matches so far in this tournament. So, this match is going to be very much important in terms of the top half of the table. Delhi Capitals have won their previous match against Sunrisers Hyderabad in the super over. They will be eyeing to maintain the winning run in this match.
On the other hand, Royal Challengers Bangalore have lost their previous game against Chennai Super Kings. After four straight wins, this defeat will certainly hurt them a bit. However, Virat Kohli and Co will be eyeing to make a comeback in this match against Delhi Capitals on Tuesday.
Delhi Capitals will have to make a few changes in their side for this match. Ravichandran Ashwin has withdrawn himself from the tournament due to family reasons. So, the team management will have to find his replacement. Lalit Yadav can be a good choice to replace him. The batting depth of Delhi Capitals will increase with this addition. However, the management might go with another Indian pacer because of the condition in Ahmedabad. Dew is going to be a big factor in this game. The toss winning team will certainly try to bat second to stay in an advantageous position.
