Recent performance of the Royal Challengers Bangalore team in cricket.
Although the Royal Challengers Bangalore team has made it to the finals of the Indian Premier League three times, they have not yet managed to win the trophy. However, with the team having qualified for the playoffs in the previous three seasons, they should be regarded as strong contenders for the championship this year.
A formidable batting lineup for RCB is comprised of Kohli, Patidar, Maxwell, and du Plessis, with the added benefit of having a reliable finisher in Dinesh Karthik batting lower down the order. The team's bowling unit, which includes Hazlewood, Siraj, Hasaranga, and Harshal Patel, offers both variety and experience. Additionally, Maxwell can also serve as the sixth bowler.
Recent performance of the Delhi Capitals team in cricket.
In that year, young Rishabh Pant led a resurgence for the team, despite losing to MI in the final. The Delhi Capitals team has a particularly strong bowling unit, with one of the best opening partnerships in Warner and Shaw. Players such as Kuldeep Yadav, Sakariya, Axar Patel, Nortje, and Ngidi have experienced success in previous IPL seasons. However, the team's middle order after the openers lacks power, although Mitchell Marsh can serve as a finisher down the order. Either Marsh or Lalit Yadav will need to fill in as the team's sixth bowler.
