Strong contenders Royal Challengers Bangalore face a woefully out-of-form Delhi Daredevils as they resume their IPL campaign on Tuesday following a heart-breaking defeat against Chennai Super Kings.
A big no-ball by RP Singh in the dying minutes of the match had deprived Bangalore from an exciting win. It was second close defeat for Bangalore, having lost another thriller via Super Over to Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Hosts Bangalore are expected to face some good resistance from Delhi since the visitors are the only side to not have won a single game this season and would do everything to get on board. More Preview
