Delhi Capitals vs Royal Challengers Bangalore [What to watch out for in IPL 2022]
Delhi Capitals and Royal Challengers Bangalore are two high-flying teams that make the Indian T20 Premier League glorious every year.
Delhi Capitals, formerly known as Delhi Daredevils, appeared in the 2021 IPL with multiple stars like Rishav Pant, Prithvi Shaw, Axar Patel, and Anrich Nortje. And, in 2022, the announced retained players are the same as the last year. DC faced a five-wicket loss to Mumbai Indians in the 2020 IPL and started their 2021 season on a winning spirit. They won most matches last season (in 2021) but lost their winning momentum to Royal Challengers Bangalore.
DC always comes up with a threatening bowling unit against their opponents. Anrich Nortje, Ishant Sharma, M Siddharth, Tom Curran, Avesh Khan, Amit Mishra, and Umesh Yadav added some flying colours to the performance of DC in the 2021 IPL.
Royal Challengers Bangalore is not behind in stacking their team with international stars. Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, David Warner, Rashid Khan, Kane Williamson, and many others have performed for the team. Both Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Capitals teams have not won a title yet in IPL’s fourteen-year history, but RCB is a little ahead of DC by playing the IPL finals three times (two times more than DC).
Both Delhi and Bangalore teams believe in making constant changes and retaining a couple of players from the last season. It has been seen that many times both DC and RCB have renewed their Indian T20 Premier League team to make a fresh start. Everyone is waiting to see the clash of Delhi Capitals vs Royal Challengers Bangalore in Indian T20 Premier League 2022. Bangalore has a sharp edge over Delhi.
