Fantasy Tips of The Day
Given the conditions, Kuldeep Yadav is likely to test the Bangalore batters. He dismissed Glenn Maxwell in the last two matches.
Ishant Sharma has not gone wicketless in competitive T20s since 2022. During this period, he averages 45 points per match.
Faf du Plessis has hit the most sixes (28) in the tournament so far. Moreover, he has combined with Virat Kohli to score 830 runs, including 10 half-centuries and 69 fours.
David Warner has collected 962 runs at 50 against Bangalore, including two centuries and nine half-centuries. In addition, he has grabbed 13 catches.
Karn Sharma has picked seven wickets in four matches so far. The last time he faced Delhi at the venue, he generated bonus points for a three-wicket haul.
Such has been Mohammed Siraj’s consistency with the new ball that he has scalped nine wickets in the powerplay.
Delhi have lost 21 wickets in the first six overs – an area where Bangalore bowlers thrive: they have taken at least four wickets in the powerplay once in every three matches.
When the sides clashed earlier in the tournament, Manish Pandey slammed 50.
Thanks to his all-round contributions (238 runs and seven wickets), Axar Patel is the only player from either side to feature in the Best11 in the last five matches.
