After losing their first two matches — and 11 in a row going back to last season — Delhi behind their South African Captain J.P. Duminy have now won three of their last four to place themselves squarely in the center of the IPL playoff picture.
But the star-packed Bangalore side appears that it’s finally starting to gel behind captain Virat Kohli, with the addition of Australia’s World Cup star Mitchell Starc to the bowling attack seeming to make all the difference. Starc, who was named Man of the Tournament in the ICC Cricket World Cup in March, when he powered his country to its fifth trophy, missed the first three RCB games with a knee injury.
The intimidating RCB batting assault led by Kohli, Chris Gayle, and A.B. de Villiers poses a significant problem for the Delhi bowlers, who are topped by current IPL 2015 leading wicket-taker Imran Tahir.
“We have got a few plans for them. But we have to go out there and be aggressive,” said Daredevils Sri Lankan star Angelo Mathews. “You can’t really contain because you have seen in the past, most teams have dominated in the last six or seven overs if they still have wickets in hand. So, you need to try and take wickets early on and look to take wickets all the time.”
In other words, look for Sunday’s Bangalore vs. Delhi match to unfold as a low scoring, bowling dominated affair.
