Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) are all set to take on Delhi Daredevils (DD) for one last time in match no 55 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2015 at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on Sunday.
RCB would look to seal the second spot in the standings so that they can set up a tie against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in Qualifier one. Meanwhile, DD have nothing to lose and they would play for pride.
RCB outplayed Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in their last rain-curtailed game while the Daredevils defeated the mighty CSK.
Let's have a look at some of the key battles from this match:
Chris Gayle vs Zaheer Khan: Gayle would look to repeat the same what he did throughout the tournament. He has batted well in tandem with his skipper Virat Kohli at the top of the order and can cause serious damage. But he will be facing the veteran Indian pacer Zaheer Khan. He bowled extremely well against CSK. Zaheer picked up two wickets by giving away just nine runs in four overs.
Virat Kohli vs Gurinder Sandhu: In the match against SRH, Kohli established why he is one of the best batsmen in the world. He has led his side from the front and would not hold himself back. He is known for his attacking style, but he will have to overcome Gurinder Sandhu who uses his height to generate pace and bounce from the wicket.
Shreyas Iyer vs Mitchell Starc: Iyer has been the best batsman for the Daredevils and he would look to add some more runs to his name to move up the order in the highest run-scorer list of the tournament. Starc on the other hand has completely changed the outlook of the RCB bowling attack. He would look to add some more scalps to his name.
JP Duminy vs Yuzvendra Chahal: Duminy has to come in handy with the bat if he wants to give his side a chance against the in-form RCB. He is undoubtedly one of the better players of spin in his side and he would fancy Chahal. But Chahal won't be an easy customer. His wrong ones are difficult to pick as he bowls slow through the air.
