Before taking on Royal Challengers Bangalore at Chinnaswamy Stadium on Saturday, their last match was on Monday.

Pant's party lasted long and promised Delhi a possible win, but de Villiers's genius studded the night and took Bangalore through.

Both teams are also going through same issues that they are top order batting heavy while finishing it is concern for them. But nothing has gone right for their teams so far and tonight will be a good opportunity to start a winning streak. "The last two innings I wasn't hitting it too well, but today I felt it coming off the middle, watched it nice and early, bought myself that extra split second and that's when I need to cash in". The match will start at 08:00 pm.

RCB must tighten-up their bowling having conceded 200 plus runs in the previous two games at home. De Villiers has not fired since the opening two games and that has cost the Royal Challengers dearly with Kohli burdened with scoring the lion's share of runs.

Leg spinner Rahul Tewatia has been the economical bowler for his side and has so far scalped six wickets from four games he has played.

Manish Pandey has been a crucial batsman for several IPL franchises in his career, the Royal Challengers Bangalore being one of them. "The chase against Mumbai (the lone DD win where they chased down 194) was a creditable performance from the entire unit", he continued adding that it will take some special skills from the bowlers if they are to do well in the Bengaluru wicket.

In this IPL 2018, both the teams have played four matches but won only in one match and lost three matches. Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Rajasthan Royals live streaming will be available on Hotstar and Jio TV.

Inspite if having some brilliant players in their ranks, Delhi Daredevils, like every season have failed to fire when needed the most.

The Bangalore side will however, be the favorites in Saturday's clash as out of 18 matches in the IPL overall, the Kohli-led team has won 12 and Delhi has won the remaining 6. DD are yet to play a match at home and will be hoping to head home with the confidence of a win behind them.

RCB sits above DD with the same number of points but a higher net run rate.
