Feroz Shah Kotla
GROUND AND PITCH REPORT:
The Feroz Shah Kotla pitch has been an okayish wicket, and both batsmen and bowlers have got assistance out of the pitch. The scores haven’t been really high on this wicket.
Like I said the scores haven’t been really high on this wicket. On average the score has been around 160 in all the matches being played here this here and the highest being 185.
63 wickets in total have fallen on this wicket in the five matches played this year. So on average 6.3 wickets have fallen every Innings which is quite high.
So you can pick more bowlers on this wicket as the chances of more wickets falling is quite high.
TEAMS HEAD TO HEAD:
Even at the Feroz Shah Kotla, DC have won only 2 out of the 8 matches they have played against RCB.
So the odds are with the RCB this time!
TOP PERFORMERS IN HEAD TO HEAD MATCHES:
Virat Kohli has scored a staggering 826 runs in total against the Delhi Capitals at an average of 68.83. He just loves playing against DC. Don’t miss him out in your team!
ABD also has a liking against his former franchise, who has scored 528 runs against the DC.
Yuzi Chahal has picked up 12 wickets against the DC.
Delhi has won only 2 matches out of 5 matches at home this season.
The chasing team has had an advantage here as well with 3 matches being won by the chasing team here.
RCB are placed right at the bottom but they still have an outside chance if they win each and every game they play. They have won all their last three games, so they have the momentum they required.
DC is looking strong and formidable and winning this match will take them to the top of the table and qualify them for the playoffs as well. They have won 5 out of the last 6 games so far!!!
THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND:
Moeen Ali and Dale Steyn will not be available for RCB so they have to dig down deep and find out the right players to fit into the team.
