Delhi Capitals vs Royal Challengers Bangalore Betting Tips 27/04/2021

Teams Status

Delhi Capitals head into this fixture on the back of a dramatic Super Over win against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Sunday night. In what was a low scoring affair on a sticky wicket in Chennai, Delhi edged out Hyderabad in a heartbreaking fashion. They had set a 160-run target – hardly a big total – for the Sunrisers, who despite a good start, fell a run short of their target, and a Super Over was needed to settle the tie.

Axar Patel, playing his first match of IPL 2021 as well as his first since recovering from Covid, was given the Super Over, in which he restricted Hyderabad batters to just seven runs – a target Delhi got to with ease.

With that win, Delhi are now hovering near the top of the IPL points table, level on points with leaders CSK – albeit with a massive run-rate differential.

The clash with RCB offers the chance to either team to go top, even if CSK can reclaim the spot later.

Royal Challengers Bangalore fans woke up to the news that their Australian imports Kane Richardson and Adam Zampa have left India and will play no further part in the rest of the tournament.

It means that RCB now only have Finn Allen, Dan Christian, AB de Villiers, Glenn Maxwell, Kyle Jamieson and Daniel Sams as their foreign players. However, the loss of Richardson and Zampa should not be a major factor, considering that neither was a first-team regular. In fact, Zampa had played no matches this IPL and Richardson got only one.

Meanwhile, RCB, in their last game, saw their four-match winning streak and unbeaten record come to an end as CSK brushed them aside and became the new league leaders.

Poor death bowling and a complete meltdown in the middle order, despite a good start, were responsible for RCB’s defeat as Ravindra Jadeja ran riots.

Tipster’s Angel

Tip: Royal Challengers Bangalore to win @ 1.9

Delhi Capitals have completely dominated Royal Challengers Bangalore in the last five matches, winning four and losing just once. In fact, they are on a four-match winning streak against RCB. That said, RCB are led by a skipper that uses these things to fuel himself to push his team for better performances. After the humiliation against CSK recently and his team’s poor record against Delhi in general, Kohli will be doubly motivated to get the win here.

Virat Kohli to score 50 run – Yes @ 3.0

The second tip stems from the first, and with higher odds it certainly is more tempting. Kohli may not have full control over how his team plays but he sure can deliver an individual performance to remember. He has so far taken a backseat and allowed his teammates, especially his opening partner Devdutt Padikkal, to hog the limelight. He could now be ready to take the centre stage. Don’t be surprised if a big innings comes from him.

Conclusion

All or most of the metrics point towards a Delhi win but as we identified, as much as the RCB are chokers in the play-offs, they are excellent during regular season. RCB should take the W here.
