Royal Challengers Bangalore is the true entertainer of the tournament. They are winning matches which are beyond their reach and losing games which are in their hands. Other than that, Virat Kohli’s revenge against LSG has set the expectations even higher on this Bangalore based franchise team. On the other side, we have Delhi Capitals, who just won against the No. 1 side of the tournament. The win against GT has really improvised the hope for DC. With all the happening, DC is about to take on RCB at their home, Delhi.

Fantasy Picks for the DC vs RCB Match
Arun Jaitley stadium is Virat’s home. He knows every nook and corner here. He has played plenty of his early cricket here. With his current form, this game can be the one that can help him convert his fifty into hundred.
Vice Captain : Warner
D Warner in Delhi has already done a lot. With the conditions favoring him batting, he can be a nightmare for RCB.
Batsmen : Faf, Warner, Kohli, Lomrar
Faf is yet another man with a golden bat. He has been in terrific form right from the start of this tournament. Since the conditions here are similar to that of Chinnaswamy stadium, Faf can be ruthless.
Lomrar is slowly opening up to his natural game on the big stage. This game can be his first breakthrough.
Wicketkeepers: Phil Salt
Salt’s partnership with Marsh against SRH is more than enough to prove his capability on these conditions. Above all , he walks in as a top order batter which is fair enough to make him our option.
All rounders : G Maxwell, A Patel, Marsh, Hasaranga
All four are the biggies of their respective sides. They bowl, they bat and they do miracles. That’s how they are trained.
Bowlers : M Siraj, Kuldeep Yadav
Siraj is seriously leading the RCB bowling. His ability to bring in breakthroughs whenever the team needs it badly makes him the best in the business.
Kuldeep’s loopy bowling might be the key to get wickets. He has been fruitful throughout this season.
