Delhi Daredevils will host Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Feroz Shah Kotla in the final match of the league stage in the 2017 Indian Premier League [IPL].

Although there isn’t a chance for them to make the playoffs, the Daredevils have found some form towards the end of the season, having won four out of their last five matches.

On the other hand, the Royal Challengers will finish last regardless of the result in this match. Virat Kohli and co. have lost six out of their seven matches, with the other game being abandoned due to rain.

Ahead of the match, we have the latest team news, start time and date, as well as how you can watch all the action from the UAE.

With a lot of their overseas players having left the tournament to join their respective national sides, Delhi decided to pack their line-up with bowlers and played eight Indian players against Rising Pune Supergiant.

Although the Daredevils are known to constantly make changes to their playing XI, one shouldn’t be surprised if they play the same XI as the last match here.

RCB SQUAD: Virat Kohli, Chris Gayle, AB de Villiers, Shane Watson, Yuzvendra Chahal, Harshal Patel, Mandeep Singh, Adam Milne, Sreenath Aravind, Kedar Jadhav, Stuart Binny, Samuel Badree, Travis Head, Sachin Baby, Iqbal Abdullah, Avesh Khan, Tabraiz Shamsi, Pawan Negi, Tymal Mills, Aniket Choudhary, Praveen Dubey, Billy Stanlake, Vishnu Vinod, Harpreet Singh.

AB de Villiers has left the squad for international commitments, which could see the return of Shane Watson to the team.

Tymal Mills hasn’t played a match since April 23 due to back and hamstring injuries. If he is fit, he could come into the XI and occupy one of the overseas spots.

PREDICTED RCB XI: Gayle, Mandeep, Kohli (c), Head, Jadhav (wk), Watson, Negi, Badree, Aravind, Choudhary, Chahal.
