Star spinner Wanindu Hasaranga has linked up with the squad and is expected to walk right into the playing XI, strengthening the bowling department.
RCB vs DC Live: Will Phil Salt play his first game?
DC could bring in Phil Salt in place of Rovman Powell. The hard-hitting English batsman is known for his attacking innings at the start and could keep the run-rate in check while Warner plays the anchoring role.
RCB vs DC Live: Poor batting continues to trouble DC
Prithvi Shaw’s technical problems against top-quality pace attacks have come to the fore, which is something that can’t be fixed quickly. Manish Pandey, who came in place of Sarfaraz Khan, has also failed to contribute. Handed a debut Yash Dhull lasted just four balls against MI.
RCB vs DC Live: Big challenge for DC bowlers
Delhi’s pacers have been taken to the cleaners although Anrich Nortje and Mustafizur Rahman did well against MI albeit in a losing cause. But more will be expected of them at the Chinnaswamy Stadium, which is a belter of a track. Spinners Axar and Kuldeep Yadav are also yet to churn out match-winning performances.
RCB vs DC Live: Death bowling, a major concern for RCB
Mohammed Siraj has been exceptional with the new ball but death bowling woes continue to plague RCB as their bowlers have leaked runs at an alarmingly high rate. Death overs specialist Harshal Patel has looked a jaded version of himself and RCB would hope others step up.

The likes of Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis have contributed with the bat and would be eyeing another good show come Saturday. Glenn Maxwell being back amongst runs is also a good sign for the hosts.
RCB vs DC Live: The only positives for DC
Nothing is going right for the David Warner-led side and the team’s think-tank is struggling to stem the rot that has set in. Warner and his deputy Axar Patel have carried the team’s batting attack with all others failing miserably. Axar’s cameos have been the only silver lining for Delhi this season.

Winless in the tournament so far, Delhi Capitals need to fire as a unit if they have to effect a turnaround as they gear up to clash with Royal Challengers Bangalore.
