Match Prediction – DC vs RCB, 27th Match IPL 2022 – Who Will Win Today’s Match?

Delhi Capitals and Royal Challengers Bangalore are set to lock horns in the 27th match of the IPL 2022 at Wankhede Stadium on Saturday evening. Delhi Capitals are coming off a convincing victory in their last game while Royal Challengers Bangalore suffered a loss.

Rishabh Pant-led Delhi Capitals had had a mixed season so far. They started off with a win out of nowhere against Mumbai Indians but lost the next two, before winning in their fourth fixture. The Capitals are in the middle of the table with 4 points and a net run-rate of 0.476. In their most recent game, Delhi defeated Kolkata Knight Riders by 44 runs at Brabourne Stadium.

Prithvi Shaw was the star of the show, blasting 51 off 29 while David Warner scored a 45-ball 61. Delhi Capitals reached a strong total of 215/5 courtesy of some handy contributions from Pant, Axar Patel and Shardul Thakur. For Kolkata Knight Riders, Nitish Rana and Shreyas Iyer looked right on course with their 69-run stand but Kuldeep Yadav’s 4/35 broke the game open for the Capitals. Khaleel Ahmed was also instrumental with his 3 for 25 as they shot out the opponent for 171.

Royal Challengers Bangalore, led by Faf du Plessis, have won three out of five games in the season and their net run-rate reads 0.006. RCB claimed three victories on the trot, with a loss each on either side of the winning streak. In their most recent fixture, the Royal Challengers were defeated by 23 runs at the hands of Chennai Super Kings at DY Patil Stadium on Tuesday.

Royal Challengers Bangalore felt the absence of Harshal Patel as Chennai Super Kings put on a huge total of 216/4 in the first innings after being 60/2 at the halfway mark. From the yellow army, Shivam Dube blasted 95 off 46 while Robin Uthappa scored 88 off 50. Chasing the target, the Royal Challengers were reduced to 50/4 in 6.5 overs, with dismissals of Faf du Plessis, Virat Kohli and Glenn Maxwell. Shahbaz Ahmed scored 41 off 28 while Suyash Prabhudesai impressed everyone with his 34 off 18. Dinesh Karthik continued his firm and hammered 14-ball 34 but the match was gone the moment he was dismissed.

Delhi Capitals and Royal Challengers Bangalore have faced each other on 28 occasions in the history of the tournament. The Royal Challengers have dominated the rivalry, winning 17 matches compared to 10 wins by the Capitals. As for the last five matches, Delhi Capitals lead the scoreline by three wins to two.

In the bowling department, Kuldeep Yadav will hold the key while Khaleel Ahmed will be hoping to continue his good form.

Kuldeep Yadav, after a couple of difficult years, seems to have worked on his craft and improved significantly. It shows in his season numbers, having picked 10 wickets in just four games at an economy of 7.40 rpo with best figures of 4/35. Kuldeep is likely to be a key player against Royal Challengers Bangalore.
