In yet another box-office game in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023, we will be witnessing Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) locking horns with Delhi Capitals (DC). The match will be played at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru and is slated to kick-start from 3:30 PM (IST).
Both the teams are at the bottom half of the table and haven’t yet gotten their bearings right. While David Warner’s DC are in the last position of the table with 0 wins, Royal Challengers Bangalore are in the 8th position of the points table with just 1 win in 3 games.
RCB vs DC game will be an afternoon game at Bengaluru and we will be expecting a full house here.
In this article, we take a look at the top 3 vice-captains’ choice for today’s RCB vs DC game in IPL 2023:
1. Mohammad Siraj (Royal Challengers Bangalore)
After having a below-par game against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Mohammad Siraj bounced back like a pro in the game against Lucknow Super Giants (LSG). Siraj bagged 3 wickets against LSG and had an excellent economy of 5.50.
With his ability to shine with the new ball and take wickets at regular intervals, Mohammad Siraj can be a potent weapon for RCB in this RCB vs DC match.
2. Axar Patel (Delhi Capitals)
Axar Patel, who is the vice-captain of Delhi, is a formidable choice for a vice-captain in your fantasy team. Patel has the ability to take wickets at regular intervals and can also score runs with ease.
In the previous game against Mumbai Indians (MI), Axar Patel scored a top-notch half-century and was also very economical with the ball. The all-rounder from Gujarat increases the dynamics of the team.
3. Faf Du Plessis (Royal Challengers Bangalore)
Often, a captain gets bogged down with pressure and is unable to deliver the goods with the bat or with the ball. But Faf Du Plessis is exactly opposite to it. He has been performing well with the bat and scored a half-century in the previous game versus LSG.
If Faf can continue to score runs at this rate, he will be a useful weapon in the arsenal of RCB in this RCB vs DC contest. He is the leading run-getter of RCB so far in IPL 2023 and has amassed 175 runs in just 3 games.
The former South African skipper has a mind-blowing average of 87.50 and has smashed 12 fours and 13 sixes so far in the tournament.
