Bangalore vs Delhi Match 19 is scheduled to start at 07:30 PM IST (06:00 PM local time) (02:00 PM UTC). The game will be telecasted on the Star Sports Network (Available in English, Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Bengali). Also, live streaming will be available on Disney+ Hotstar.
After the successful double-headers on weekends, Bangalore are up against Delhi in the next fixture of Indian T20 League. Both the teams have won three out of four matches so far and are only separated by the net run rate. Bangalore are coming off two consecutive victories including a convincing one against Rajasthan in Abu Dhabi and seem to have found the best combination for their XI.
With Virat Kohli back into scoring form, the only thing Bangalore is expecting now is to get the services of Morris. Otherwise it has been an all-round performance by the Virat Kohli-led side so far. However, they are expected to go with the same XI and make it eight points in five games.
On the other side, Delhi just scored the highest total by any team this season. They have been top notch with their pace bowling and some consistent outcomes from their Indian batters. The hitting form of Shreyas Iyer has to be a big positive for them. However, their spin unit needs to be reset to tackle the heavy batting unit of Bangalore. They would like to win this and make a move to the top of the table for a while.
