Royal Challengers Bangalore need a win the the 2013 IPL against Delhi Daredevils as the side teeter on the brink of the play-off places with just four matches remaining.
RCB have looked like a top four side for much of the season, but three defeats in their last five fixtures has left the franchise in fourth place and level on points with Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Victory for Rajasthan Royals on Thursday has seen Rahul Dravid’s side pull four points clear of Bangalore and despite losing to Rajasthan, Kings XI Punjab still aren’t out of contention in sixth.
Delhi meanwhile have nothing but pride to play for having been all but eliminated from the competition following nine defeats in 12 matches.
A loss today would mathematically confirm Mahela Jayawardene and his team are out of the sixth version of the tournament, but with Australian batsman David Warner playing well and looking to prove himself before the Ashes, the Daredevils will continue fighting.
For the Royal Challengers they have batting talent in abundance as Chris Gayle continues his battle with Chennai Super Kings’ Mike Hussey for the Orange Cap award for most runs, with just eight separating Hussey from the West Indian.
Captain Virat Kohli and South African AB de Villier have also been contributing with good knocks in recent times and anything but an RCB win today would be a surprise.
