RCB Team News

Heinrich Klaasen replaced Moeen Ali, who has linked up with the England squad, for the game against Delhi Capitals as Royal Challengers Bangalore made three changes. Akshdeep Nath and Tim Southee also missed out, replaced by Shivam Dube and Gurkeerat Singh, as RCB elected to play just three overseas players.

RCB Key Players

Parthiv Patel top-scored last time out with 39 from 20 balls in a useful 63-run opening partnership with Virat Kohli (23) in just 5.5 overs. Patel now has 365 runs for IPL 2019 season.

AB de Villiers remains their top run scorer, however. The big-hitting South African icon has 431 from 11 innings, including five half-centuries. Captain Kohli has 423 from 12 innings, meanwhile, including two half-centuries and one hundred.

Marcus Stoinis has refound some of his BBL form, meanwhile, hitting 46* and 32* in the last two matches.

With the ball, Yuzvendra Chahal’s two wickets last time out moved him to 16 from 12 for the season but he was expensive.

Economy rate has been one of their major flaws this season, with Moeen Ali a big loss in that regard.

RCB Team Form

Royal Challengers Bangalore’s three-match winning streak was ended by Delhi Capitals last time out, as they posted 187/5 and restricted RCB to 171/7 in reply.

It was in stark contrast to them twice passing 200 in their last three games. Against Kings XI Punjab, AB de Villiers led the way with 82 in a total of 202/4 – enough to win by 17 runs. Against Kolkata Knight Riders, meanwhile, Virat Kohli hit a 58-ball century as RCB posted 213/4 and won by ten runs.

In between, Royal Challengers Bangalore won a thriller against Chennai Super Kings – scoring 161/7 before holding on for a one-run win.
