Royal Challengers Bangalore’s director of cricket, Mike Hesson spoke about the side’s preparation ahead of clash with Delhi Capitals. RCB comes into this game after a comfortable win over the Rajasthan Royals by 8 wickets last week.
They are all set to lock horns with the Delhi Capitals in Dubai International Stadium on today (October 5). Both the teams have won three matches each so far and also in the top 3 in the points table.
“We know we are in for a tough game. We are familiar with the Dubai wicket. The way they (Delhi Capitals) are structured, they look to come hard at you. They have some good spinners, Ashwin and Mishra are bowling nicely, I think it’s their pace that will challenge us,” Hesson said in a video.
“Throughout the four games, we have done all different disciplines well, Virat Kohli and de Villiers at three and four certainly helps. I think the game against Rajasthan Royals was very clinical and if we play another game like that, we will ourselves a good chance. Different people have stood up for us in different games, we are not reliant on the same people,” he added.
“Delhi are a very good team, they have been progressing well over the last few years, they got into the playoffs last year, they are very good Indian and overseas talent. We know it will be a great match, I know the incentive is there to take the top spot in the IPL standings,” head coach Simon Katich said.
