Royal Challengers Bangalore will take on Delhi Daredevils in a potential high-voltage match of the CLT20.


For the Royal Challengers, this would be a do-or-die affair since a loss here would mean their ouster from the tournament.


Though the side from Bangalore looks balanced still they looked patchy with the bat against the Bushrangers in their last game. They have lost two games and have just one win under their belts thus far.


The team boasts of a supreme batting line-up including the likes of Robin Uthappa, Jacques Kallis, Rahul Dravid, Ross Taylor, Virat Kohli, Manish Pandey and Mark Boucher, but their inability to for in unison has been the major issue.


Amongst the bowlers though, the side has been seen longing for consistency and apart from South African star all-rounder Kallis none as looked good in the department.


Delhi Daredevils on the other hand have shown that they are getting back to rhythm in all departments. In the last game against Wayamba a comprehensive win meant the team would be high on confidence taking on their IPL opponents.


Their only batting problem relies with the struggle of Dilshan and Gautam Gambhir but considering the inherent talent in both, its just a matter of time before they start coming good.


The bowling though clearly tilts the game in Delhi's favour as Dirk Nannes, Glenn McGrath and Ashish Nehra combine to form the potentially best new ball attack in the tournament. The pace is followed by good spin by Amit Mishra and though he is yet to stamp his authority on the tournament, he has not been bad either.
