DC vs BLR Dream11 Prediction: 22nd Match, IPL 2021
Delhi Capitals and Royal Challengers Bangalore will play against each other in the 22nd match of IPL 2021 at Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad. We will cover DC vs BLR Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips of IPL 2021.
Delhi Capitals are performing brilliantly this season as they are currently at the 3rd position on the points table with four wins and one loss, and eight points. They managed to win the last match by performing well in the super over.
Prithvi Shaw has been batting well and has not been consistent with his performance, but he scored a brilliant fifty in the last match. Shikhar Dhawan is also batting well and is the leading run-scorer so far in the tournament. Steve Smith is also batting well, but he needs to score runs quickly because he puts pressure on the other batsmen.
In the middle-order, Rishab Pant has been batting well and scoring consistently, but he needs to stay until the innings. Hetmyer and Stoinis haven’t got enough chances with the bat, but they have been doing an excellent job as finishers. Now, Axar Patel has also joined the team, so the batting lineup has become substantial.
The right-arm fast bowler Avesh Khan has been the best bowler for the team so far as he has picked up wickets consistently and picked three wickets in the last match. Axar Patel and Amit Mishra also bowled well, picking up two and one wickets, respectively.
Delhi Capitals need to improve their scoring rate runs a little bit, and they can quickly become the toppers of the table.
Royal Challengers Bangalore:
Royal Challengers Bangalore finally lost a match this season after four consecutive wins and are currently at the 2nd position on the points table with 8 points. Their batting got exposed in the last game, and as a result, they lost the match by 69 runs.
Opening the innings, Virat Kohli has been batting well, scoring consistently but got out early in the last match. Devdutt Padikkal is looking back in form and scoring runs aggressively, but he should be careful about not throwing his wicket away. At No.3, Washington Sundar batted in the last match but got out without scoring much.
Glenn Maxwell and AB de Villiers are performing consistently in the middle-order but struggled in the last match. There are no proper batsmen in the lower middle-order, which was evident from the previous game. Daniel Christian is the only recognized batsman in the lower order, but he did not show any impact this season.
After so many good performances, the bowling department was entirely out of rhythm in the last match and conceded a lot of runs. Harshal Patel is currently the purple cap holder this season and managed to pick up three wickets in the previous game, but it was costly. Chahal also managed to pick up a wicket in the last match. Siraj is also showing a lot of improvement in this season.
Royal Challengers Bangalore needs to work on their middle and lower-middle order batting lineup as they cannot always rely on only two to three players to win matches for them.

The pitch is suitable for batting, but spinners play a crucial role in the second innings of the match as the rise slows down. The team batting first will have a slight advantage because the bat comes nicely onto the bat. In the last match (PBKS vs KOL) here, dew came in the 2nd innings so batting in the 2nd innings is also easy.
(The chasing team at this venue has won three out of the six matches)
The weather will be partly cloudy, but there is no chance of rain during the match.
