IPL 2020: Top 3 Picks for Royal Challengers Bangalore against Delhi Capitals


royal challengers bangalore

Royal Challengers Bangalore will be up against the likes of second-placed Delhi Capitals in a bid to conquer the top spot in the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League. Royal Challengers Bangalore are on the back of a comfortable victory and will look to continue their work before they face Kolkata Knight Riders in Sharjah.

Delhi Capitals won their last game against Kolkata Knight Riders in Sharjah after they scored 229 in 20 overs. Though bowlers were ineffective on that pitch, Marcus Stoinis surprised the opposition with the slow balls. RCB have to vary this fact and have to strategize the same against their former player.

It will be an interesting game as both sides are looking to claim the stakes on the top spot of the table. Here are the top three picks for Royal Challengers Bangalore who can prove to be detrimental against the Shreyas Iyer-led side:

#1) Isuru Udana

Isuru Udana didn’t start the first two games in the Indian Premier League 2020 but the injury to Dale Steyn forced Virat Kohli to bring in Isuru Udana. The bowler has proved himself in the two games with early breakthroughs and pulling the plugs in the death overs. Udana has handled the death over the crisis of Royal Challengers with Navdeep Saini.

In the previous game against Rajasthan Royals, he removed Jos Buttler who was looking in great touch. Udana will be one of the top three picks against Delhi Capitals for RCB as Delhi has a strong batting line-up at their disposal.

#2) Aaron Finch

The Australian white-ball captain has not lived up to the expectations in IPL 2020. He has blown hot and cold in the cash-rich league and has only one half-century in four games. Despite providing a good start to the team and himself settling, he has unable to fire against the opposition. The captain of RCB will hope that Aaron Finch will come to the party very soon.

At Dubai International Stadium, Aaron Finch has a great responsibility at the top of the order. Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje will look to hunt down the opposition with their fiery spells. Can Aaron Finch destroy the bowlers on Monday?

#3) Virat Kohli

Devdutt Padikkal

The Indian team skipper finally found his form against Rajasthan Royals with a tremendous half-century. After off to a slow start in the league and in the game, Virat Kohli slowly upped the tempo. He not only played a calm inning initially but also dictated the opposition in the fag end of the season. Along with Devdutt Padikkal, Virat Kohli steered the chase to the target.

Virat Kohli will be one of the top three picks for Royal Challengers Bangalore as they will face one of the top bowling attacks which have Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje at their disposal. Virat Kohli will look to keep the form that has regained in the last game.
