IPL 10: Royal Challengers Bangalore wins toss; Delhi Daredevils to bowl
Bengaluru: Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) won the toss and elected to bat first against Delhi Daredevils (DD) in their Indian Premier League season 10 (IPL 10) encounter scheduled to begin at 8 pm at M Chinnaswamy stadium here on Saturday.
In absence of their top players like Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers and Lokesh Rahul, RCB had suffered a 35-run defeat in its previous match against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH).
In today's game, Chris Gayle has a great chance of completing 10,000 runs in Twenty20 Cricket as he is just 30 runs short of the historic milestone.
Kedar Jadhav looked in great form in the previous match but unfortunately got run out to a fabulous trow from the deep.
All eyes will be centered on Delhi batsman Quinton De Cock who has been enjoying a sublime form over the past few months and had a terrific IPL 9 season.
Here are the two teams:
Royal Challengers Bangalore
Chris Gayle, Mandeep Singh, Shane Watson (Captain), Kedar Jadhav (wicket-kepper), Stuart Binny, Vishnu Vinod, Pawan Negi, Yuzvendra Chahal, Tymal Mills, Iqbal Abdulla and Billy Stanlake
Sam Billings, Aditya Tare, Sanju Samson, Karun Nair, Rishabh Pant (wicket-keeper), Carlos Brathwaite, Chris Morris, Pat Cummins, Amit Mishra, Zaheer Khan (Skipper) and Shahbaz Nadeem
