Analysis

RCB is still heavily reliant on the main hitters, today AB de Villiers played well.
Middle order still needs stability, as some games the main hitters will fail as it happened in match against CSK
The bowling and fielding was good, other than few catch drops

DC openers fell early, but the middle order took the responsibility and almost won the match. Death bowling needs to be improved. Fielding was good.
