Delhi vs Bangalore in Indian T20 League

Every year, Delhi and Bangalore have their own little battle going on as they are two of the only three teams that are yet to win an Indian T20 Premier League title. Both teams have had a similar trajectory in terms of their performance in the tournament as they have finished at the bottom two positions a lot of times. However, Bangalore has performed much better than Delhi when it comes to playoffs as they have reached three finals (losing all three) whereas Delhi is yet to reach a final.

The other thing to note here is how both teams continuously chop and change the team without really keeping a strong core intact. The Bangalore team literally revolves around one player – Virat Kohli – and it was only once Chris Gayle and AB de Villiers became part of the team did Bangalore had something to point as a core of the team. However, with Gayle no longer part of the setup, the onus will once again be on the Kohli-De Villiers partnership to steer them through the season. Delhi will predominantly field a young team with 3-4 experienced players to make it a team full of exuberance and guile. 

When it comes to head-to-head records, Bangalore has had the bigger laugh with 15 wins over their rivals from the North whereas the Delhi franchise has only won 8 times. This is something the well-balanced Delhi team will look to improve on in the upcoming season. On the contrary, the Bangalore team would wish to continue their dominance.

With some really smart buys before the 13th season of the Indian T20 Premier League, both teams are looking pretty solid on paper but some might say that Delhi may have a slight advantage this time around.
