Today this match is the battle for that top spot on the points table and also for those two points to make a stronger case of retaining that spot. Both the teams are coming Dubai with win from the last match.
Call it destiny or the quirk of the year, the bookmakers have offered near-equal odds on RCB and the Capitals going on to lift the IPL title. Talks of championship credentials are still premature but Monday’s encounter will ensure one of these perpetual underachievers are halfway to the magic number of eight league wins that typically assure a playoffs berth.
Both the teams have had almost similar like tournament, they both have faced a super over threat and both of them came out winning it. Both the teams have a slight light middle order filled with allrounders.But their bowling attack is a bit unlike as RCB likes to attack with some extra spin with Yuzi Chahal leading the attack where DC have found a capable double barreled protea pace attack in KG and Nortje.
With Virat back in form RCB will dance their chances but if they win the toss they would like to bat first to test the chasing capabilities of DC which has not been their strong suit.
