Vivo IPL 2016: RCB V/s Delhi Daredevils match preview and prediction
The mercury will rise today evening at the M Chinnasawmy Stadium in Bengaluru, when the home team Royal Challengers Bangalore takes on the Delhi Daredevils in match number 11 of the Vivo IPL 2016.

As it was expected of them, RCB have made a strong start to the IPL 2016 and are one of the favourites to win the tournament. They have one of the strongest batting lineups in the tournament.

Virat Kohli-led RCB will like to continue with their winning momentum in Sunday's match against the Delhi Daredevils.

The Delhi Daredevils have just revived themselves by making a strong comeback by beating the Kings XI Punjab convincingly.

Here is my prediction on which way today's match could go:

If RCB bat first!

The Chinnaswamy wicket as always is expected to be full of runs, and being a smaller ground in comparison it is relatively easier to score boundaries and sixes. In their first game against the Sunrisers Hyderabad, RCB scored a mammoth total of 227. If RCB win the toss and chose to bat first, it is almost unlikely that all their batsmen will fail, and if Chris Gayle and Kohli get going and the other batsmen also go hammer and tongs after Delhi's bowling, you can expect a good target which the Daredevils will have a tough time in chasing.


If the Delhi Daredevils bat first!

Unlike their batting, RCB lack a lot in their bowling resources. Most of their bowlers like Adam Milne and Shane Watson will have to bowl extremely well to contain Delhi batsmen like JP Duminy and Quinton de Kock. The strategy for Delhi would be simple to score as many runs as possible in their allotted 20 overs and make a match out of it. Then the onus would shift to the bowlers of Delhi Daredevils, especially skipper Zaheer Khan, Amit Mishra and Chris Morris to defend the total.

My verdict

Going by the strengths and weaknesses of both teams, it is most likely that RCB will walk away with today's game.
