Virat Kohli's Royal Challengers Bangalore(RCB) are set to face Delhi Capitals (DC), captained by youngster Rishabh Pant in the 22nd match of IPL 2021 today at 7:30 pm in Ahmedabad's Narendra Modi Stadium.
The 22nd match of IPL2021 will be played between Delhi Capitals and Royal Challengers Bangalore from 07:30 pm at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, both the teams would like to win and will occupy first place in the points table. Bangalore had to face their maiden defeat at the hands of Chennai in their previous match. At the same time, Delhi had won in the Super Over against Sunrisers Hyderabad in their last match.
Led by young captain Rishabh Pant, the Delhi team is performing brilliantly this year. Team openers Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw are performing brilliantly and the team will still expect a good start from them. The presence of Steve Smith in the middle order has strengthened the team. At the same time, Rishabh Pant, Shimron Hetmyer and Marcus Stoinis can turn the match at any time with their explosive batting.
In bowling, Kagiso Rabada is slowly returning to his rhythm. Young bowler Avesh Khan has also impressed everyone with his performance this year. The team's star spin bowler Ravichandran Ashwin has pulled out from the IPL. In such a situation, it will be in the hands of Akshar Patel, who put a super over in the last match, and veteran leg-spinner Amit Mishra, to take wickets in the middle overs.
RCB batsmen have performed amazingly in all matches except the last match. Opener Virat Kohli and Devdutt Padikkal are in excellent form; Padikkal also scored a century in IPL 2021. Maxwell has also performed wonderfully with his bat so far. At the same time, AB de Villiers has the ability to win a match for RCB under any circumstances. The team will expect their fast bowlers Kyle Jameson and Mohammed Siraj to outperform in this match.
Harshal Patel will surely be disappointed with his performance in the final over of the last match against Jadeja. However, except for that one over, his performance in all the matches so far has been breathtaking. Navdeep Saini did not impress much in the last match although the team can give him one more chance. In the spin department, Yuzvendra Chahal and Washington Sundar will be the two leading bowlers of the team.

Batting did not look so easy in the match played yesterday between Punjab Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. It is not easy to score runs against spinners on a slow pitch. Fast bowlers can also get good help from this pitch. Dew will be an important factor in the night matches. The team that wins the toss should opt to chase the target.
Our match prediction meter is telling there will be cut-throat competition between both RCB and DC; however, Batting is the strength of both teams and whoever does better in the scoring dept can win in today's match.
