  • RCB have lost their last five matches and they can only play for pride. 
  • Delhi Daredevils, on the other hand, have won four out of their last five games. 

RCB will finish the IPL 2017 at the bottom of the points table. This has been a woeful season for Kohli and co. and they would want to get over it as soon as possible. 

Delhi Daredevils (DD) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will square off in the last league match of IPL 2017 at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in New Delhi on Sunday evening. This is a dead rubber game and both teams will be looking to end the tournament on a high. 

Virat Kohli-led RCB have been miserable and they would want to get over this season as soon as possible. With 10 losses in 13 games, one can imagine the kind of state RCB are in at this moment. However, Kohli is not someone who would quit that easily. Therefore, he would want to finish the season with a win. 

The Daredevils, on the other hand, have been playing some good all-round cricket. Zaheer Khan's side has won four out of their last five matches. And one would believe that their surge got a little too late. 

The host has lost some close games and if they would have won them, the points table might have been looking a little different from what it looks now. None can undo the past, therefore the Daredevils are geared up to play some fearless cricket against RCB on Sunday evening.

Likely XIs:

Delhi Daredevils: Sanju Samson, Karun Nair, Rishabh Pant (wk), Shreyas Iyer, Marlon Samuels, Corey Anderson, Shahbaz Nadeem, Pat Cummins, Amit Mishra, Zaheer Khan (c), Mohammed Shami.

Royal Challengers Bangalore: Chris Gayle, Virat Kohli (c), Mandeep Singh, Travis Head, Harpreet Singh, Kedar Jadhav (wk), Pawan Negi, Aniket Choudhary, Samuel Badree, Yuzvendra Chahal, Tymal Mills.
