DC vs RCB Team News
Delhi Capitals are at the third position on the points table with seven wins from 11 matches. They need just one win to find themselves through to the playoff stages of the tournament. The only change Delhi could make in this match will be that off Sandeep Lamichhane in for Chris Morris.
Royal Challengers Bangalore has won only four matches out their 11. They are at the bottom of the points table and need to win all their matches to even stand a chance at qualification. Moeen Ali has left the country and flown back to England to represent his national side. Dale Steyn has been ruled out of the tournament with an injury and Tim Southee will now handle the mantle of the bowling.

KKR vs MI Team News
Mumbai is likely to make two changes from their line-up in the previous match. Anukul Roy will make way for Ishan Kishan while Evin Lewis could be dropped out in order to accommodate a fast bowler at the Eden Gardens. Mitchell McClenaghan, Ben Cutting and Jason Behrendorff are the options which Rohit Sharma has.

Mumbai is in a situation like Delhi and need only one win to book a ticket to the playoffs. They have won seven out of their 11 matches. KKR on another hand has only won four out of their 11. They need to win each and every match of theirs and also hope their opponents don’t do well.
Kolkata might bring in Matt Kelly in place of Carlos Braithwaite. Rinku Singh could also make way for Kuldeep Yadav or Sandeep Warrier.
