Delhi Capitals (DC)
Mitch Marsh, who missed Delhi’s last game in Ahmedabad, is fit and will be expected to play against Bangalore. He should be walking back into the XI right away with Rilee Rossouw making way. The Kuldeep Yadav vs Maxwell battle could be a potential game-changer. The DC spinner has got the better of Maxwell four times in IPL history, but not before the Australian has hammered 59 runs off him in 22 deliveries, striking at over 268.
Probable XI: David Warner (C), Philip Salt (wk), Mitch Marsh, Manish Pandey, Priyam Garg, Axar Patel, Ripal Patel, Aman Hakim Khan, Kuldeep Yadav, Anrich Nortje, Ishant Sharma
Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB)
Kedar Jadhav was among the select small batch attending optional practice sessions ahead of the game, and could be in line for his RCB comeback at a ground he once called ‘home’. Mohammed Siraj has struck eight times in powerplay this season and boasts of an economy of just 5.4 in the powerplay overs. All eyes would be on him against DC’s misfiring openers.
Probable XI: Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis (C), Anuj Rawat, Glenn Maxwell, Mahipal Lomror/Suyash Prabhudessai, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Kedar Jadhav, Wanindu Hasaranga, Karn Sharma, Mohammed Siraj, Josh Hazlewood
Fantasy XI Suggestion 1:
Philip Salt, David Warner, Virat Kohli (vc), Faf du Plessis (c), Glenn Maxwell, Axar Patel, Wanindu Hasaranga, Mitchell Marsh, Mohammad Siraj, Josh Hazlewood, Anrich Nortje
Fantasy XI Suggestion 2:
