Indian T20 League 2024

BLR vs DEL, 62nd Match



It's almost another knock-out match which is all set to take place between Bengaluru(BLR) and Delhi(DEL) in match 62 of the IND T20 League 2024. This thrilling contest between Southern versus Notherrn is scheduled to take place at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru on Sunday, 12 May 2024. The Visitors Delhi is placed in fifth spot with six wins out of 12 league matches, on the other hand, the Hosts Bengaluru is currently holding the seventh spot in the league standings with five wins out of 12 matches. 

BLR and DEL are vying for a berth in the playoffs, but Delhi, with two more points, are better placed than Bengaluru to book a spot in the knockout phase of the competition. Faf du Plessis-led BLR, like they usually do, is peaking late in the competition. Bengaluru won 4 of their last 5 matches quite comfortably and came excruciatingly close to winning the fifth only to fall short by 1 run against Kolkata while chasing the mountainous target. Delhi has won their 3 last encounters of four matches.

Unfortunately, Delhi will play without the services of their skipper Rishabh Pant for this match after he was suspended by the Apex Indian Cricket Authority for the slow-over run rate and handed a one-match ban. The left-handed batter also received a fine of Rs 30 Lakh for the same against Rajasthan in their last fixture. It was also confirmed by Delhi's Head coach Ricky Ponting that Axar Patel will be the first-choice skipper to lead the side against Bengaluru in this match.

The Northern side Delhi, contrastingly, scratched around to victory in 3 out of their recent five league matches and lost the other two matches by a heavy margin. The margin of victory against Mumbai and Gujarat was not too big, but Delhi found a way to get over the line. In their last outing, DEL was behind the eight ball for most of the chase but held their nerve well to complete a comfortable 20-run win over second-placed Rajasthan in the end. BLR and DEL have faced each other in 30 matches in IND T20 League history. Out of these 30 matches, Bengaluru has won 18 whereas Delhi has come out victorious on 11 occasions. 1 match ended without a result between the two sides.
