Delhi had won seven of its first nine matches and Bangalore seven of 10. Sealing a top-four spot seemed only a matter of time. But since then, they have been winless in four and three matches respectively, leading to the current tightrope walk.
Delhi can replace Pravin Dubey to bring experienced all-rounder, Axar Patel.
Bangalore had won seven matches with NRR of -0.145 & 14 points. The middle-order is the biggest concern in Bangalore, Moeen Ali is the best option to give balance to his team, Shivam Dubey is another best option to come back in playing in place of Gurkeerat Singh Mann.
Bangalore now play Delhi. If they win they qualify as the No.2 team after Mumbai.
The pitch getting dryer day by day and dew is the main factor in the second inning. Both teams want to bowl first on behalf of pitch reports.
