The top-four batsmen of the Capitals are terrifically exploiting. Prithvi, however, did not score better in two of the three matches, but he was stable in the remaining. Also, Dhawan, who is known to be an aggressive top-order batsman, can clinch what is needed for winning. Pant and Iyer will be adding up some runs along with Hetmyer whereas, their bowlers, especially Rabada, will be looking up to pick some big wickets.
RCB, having Finch and Pattikal, can form a deadly opening combination. The top four batsmen including Kohli and De Villiers can make the side stable scoring an ideal. The bowling likes of Chahal, Saini, and Zampa are far more deadly trio than any other franchise currently. The all-rounder Sundar is nevertheless.
