RCB vs DD: Who will win today's IPL 2018 game?

The multiplayer system enables the player to create their own RCB Dream Team and play against an opposing team. The alarm bells started ringing in the RCB camp when Boult took a stunner to dismiss Virat Kohli.

When Royal Challengers Bangalore take on Delhi Daredevils today at M Chinnaswamy Stadium, it will be the first time the two teams will encounter each other this season. RCB's bowlers have variety and experience but have struggled to keep the runs down. "But tonight it was nice and clear". It was the young Indian pair of Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant who struck a partnership of 75 runs for the third wicket after Gambhir and Jason Roy's departure that got DD back into the game. DD are yet to play a match at home and will be hoping to head home with the confidence of a win behind them. He and Rahul Tewatia added 65 off just 25 balls.

But Trent Boult soon ended the promising alliance with one of the best catches this season and he didn't even dive to get on that list.

With the best seat in the house, Corey Anderson was reduced to a mere spectator during his 56-run alliance with de Villiers.

In between the brilliant innings played by Pant and De Villiers, let us have a look at some of the things that went unnoticed in the match.

Pelicans take control , lead Blazers 3-0
When asked about how the Blazers will be "desperate" considering the circumstances, Davis responded, "We're desperate, too". The Pelicans defense was stellar for much of the second half but they couldn't find enough offense to create separation.

But the tone was set earlier in the evening when Umesh Yadav and Chris Woakes used friendly overcast conditions to put the lid on scoring.

With just two points, the Gautam Gambhir-led Delhi side are at the eighth place in the points table.

Rishabh Pant not only dazzled the jarring crowd with his swashbuckling innings but he apparently anchored Delhi out of a shameful position on the match. The duo were circumspect to begin with, dealing in predominantly on singles while punishing only the loose balls.

Bowling has been Daredevils' failing so far: they have been the most expensive Powerplay attack this season, going at 10.75 an over in this phase, and the second-worst team in the middle overs (8.17).

Gautam Gambhir, while generally reckoned to be a good player of spin, hasn't been almost as effective as Pant against legspin in T20s since 2015: 180 off 157 balls, nine dismissals.
