The Delhi Capitals will be facing the Royal Challengers Bangalore as the action in IPL 2022 continues. This is going to be another one of those matches where the teams seem closely matched and it will be small things that turn the direction of the match. DC comes into this match with a big win against KKR while RCB suffered a loss to CSK.
However, RCB had won the three matches before that and there is also the likelihood of Harshal Patel being available for this match. The Wankhede has so far been partial to the chasing team and so the toss is going to play a vital role as well.
The odds of winning this match (bhav) are pretty similar for both teams at all the leading IPL betting sites. RCB is only a slight favorite at the moment.
Match prediction and IPL betting tips for DC vs RCB IPL 2022. The match is going to be played at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on the 16th of April 2022.
The Delhi Capitals will continue to be without Mitchell Marsh as his rehabilitation from injury continues. In his absence, it has been necessary for DC to play Rovman Powell who has not been in the best form so far. DC will be hoping to get the best out of him in this next match so that he can take the pressure off of some of the other inexperienced players.
It is also interesting that DC continues to play with just three overseas players and leaves someone like Tim Seifert on the sidelines. We don't think there is going to be any change in the playing eleven for this match.
Prithvi Shaw and David Warner are the batters that led the way in the previous match and the focus is going to be on them once more. With Mohammad Siraj struggling with the new ball for RCB, you could choose to bet on DC's opening partnership in multiple ways (Highest Opening partnership, Individual Total Runs for Shaw/Warner, To Hit A Six, etc).
Rishab Pant batted at number three in the previous match but if an early wicket falls, DC could well look to send someone else up the order.
The rest of the batting lineup is made up of useful players but not necessarily world-beaters. Rovman Powell, Lalit Yadav, Axar Patel, Sarfaraz Khan, and Shardul Thakur can all bat but we are not going to be betting on any one of them.
A couple of early wickets could really make life difficult for DC.
Among the bowlers, Khaleel Ahmed, Kuldeep Yadav, and Mustafizur Rahman have been brilliant for DC. That makes it three left-arm bowlers leading the attack with Axar Patel in there as the fourth!
Wankhede showed some spin in the previous match and that could be brilliant for someone like Kuldeep Yadav. He is a genuine wicket-taker and while he can go for a few runs, you may want to bet on him in his current form. He could be a good option for the Top Bowler DC betting market.
Prithvi Shaw, David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, RR Pant, Lalit Yadav, Rovman Powell, Axar Patel, SN Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Khaleel Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman.
RCB was left thunderstruck by CSK in the previous match. Playing without CSK, RCB's bowlers just did not have a clue as to what to do in the death overs. There is a good chance that Harshal Patel is going to be available for this match as he has joined the bio-bubble once more but whether his quarantine period gets over in time or not is not clear.
If Harshal Patel does return, it could mean the impressive Suyash Prabhudesai being dropped from the lineup. RCB's batting has been going pretty well and it was great to see them score 193 against CSK even after being 42 for three. Glenn Maxwell looked in good form, Shahbaz Ahmed has been scoring runs, and Dinesh Karthik is seriously putting his hand up for the T20 World Cup squad.
The lower order is in good form and the current weakest link in the batting lineup seems to be Virat Kohli. In his present form, it is better to stay away from Virat Kohli as far as the betting markets go.
Among the bowlers, Wanindu Hasarnga could be a great option for the Top Bowler RCB betting market since he is also going to be able to utilize any spin on offer. A potential pairing of Josh Hazelwood, Mohammad Siraj, Harrshal Patel, and Wanindu Hasaranga will be the first time that we have seen RCB play with its first-choice bowling attack.
Faf du Plessis, Anuj Rawat, V Kohli, Glenn Maxwell, Shahbaz Ahmed, Suyash Prabhudessai, Dinesh Karthik, Wanidu Hasaranga, Harshal Patel, Josh Hazlewood, Mohammed Siraj.
The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first. This is a huge advantage to have as four out of the previous five matches played at the Wankhede have been won by the team that has chased.

The conditions in Mumbai are expected to be dry but humid. There is always dew that comes in during the second half of the match but Wankhede is one of the venues where the dew has been a bit less prevalent. The pitch has started to take a bit of spin and we could see scores being a bit lower than in general.
You could look to bet the 'Under' for Total Runs, Total Sixes, or even Total Fours.

We are going to bet on the Delhi Capitals to win. They have shown the ability to achieve more than what the squad has promised so far. Their bowling is quite good and we think that could be the difference between the two teams. Having Shaw and Warner at the top also gives them a great pair to start out with.
Bet on the Delhi Capitals to win.
DC has Prithvi Shaw at the top and we all know that he is only going to play one way. Also, RCB has given up a lot of runs and not picked up too many wickets in the powerplay so far. We think taking a punt on the in-form DC opening pair makes sense.
The Wankhede is a great venue for sixes to be hit but it can also be quite difficult if the wicket starts to spin a bit. That is the expectation for this match and so we could fewer sixes being hit than normal.
We think the Over/Under line for Sarafarz Khan is very attractive. He could be one of the players that is pushed up the order if DC loses a few early wickets. He has also been in sparkling form in domestic cricket and played quite well in the only inning he has had in IPL 2022 as well.
