In match 46 of VIVO Indian Premier league 2019 (IPL 2019), Delhi Capitals (DC) will host Royal Challengers Banagalore (RCB) at the Feroz Shah Kotla Ground in Delhi on Sunday. Shreyas Iyer-led Delhi Capitals are at the third spot in IPL 2019 Points Table while Virat Kohli's RCB are at the bottom of the table with 8 points in 11 matches. RCB will enter the Feroz Shah Kotla, a very familiar place for their captain Kohli, on the back of a three-match winning run. However, the visitors will still have to play out of their skins to stop Ricky Ponting and Sourav Ganguly's rampaging outfit. A win will ensure that Delhi, who are currently behind Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians in the points table, reach the cut-off limit of 16 points needed for a play-off berth. Delhi's performance at home has been woeful, but having registered a win after two consecutive losses here, the Shreyas Iyer-led outfit will be high on confidence. RCB will not be short on confidence either. The side seems to have regrouped successfully and found their groove. They won their last three games defeating Kolkata Knight Riders, table topper CSK and Kings XI Punjab. The wins had briefly lifted RCB from the bottom of the table. As Moeen Ali left for the national duty, Shimron Hetmyer or Heinrich Klassen may replace him in RCB playing 11
Delhi Capitals has a solid batting line up with a perfect blend of experience and youth.
In their last match chasing 192 against Rajasthan Royals, openers Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan laid the foundation with a 72-run stand which was followed by a blistering unbeaten 73-run knock by young Pant, who proved a point after being left out of India's World Cup bound squad in favour of Dinesh Karthik.
With Dhawan and Shaw at the top and the likes of Iyer, Pant and Colin Ingram to follow, Delhi would start as a confident batting unit.
In the bowling department, Delhi rely heavily on Kagiso Rabada although they have variety in medium pacer Ishant Sharma, seamer Chris Morris and spinners Sandeep Lamichhane, Amit Mishra and Axar Patel.ALSO READ: ICC World Cup 2019: Check the provisional squads of all the teams
For RCB, the likes of AB de Villiers, Kohli, Moeen Ali and Marcus Stoinis will look to capitalise on Delhi's inconsistent record at home.
However, their bowling remains a worry. RCB were dealt a huge blow when newly recruited Dale Steyn, who was brought in to replace the injured Nathan Coulter Nile, was ruled out of the IPL due to shoulder inflammation.
The side will draw inspiration from Navdeep Saini's match-winning penultimate over effort against KXIP. The fast bowler had taken the crucial wickets of Nicholas Pooran and David Miller giving away only three runs to hand his side the win.
Yuzvendra Chahal would also be a key player for RCB considering Feroz Shah Kotla's pitch.
