DC vs RCB Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2020

Delhi Capitals take on Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 55h match of the Indian Premier League. The match will be played on the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi and is scheduled to begin at 6:00 PM local time.

From winning seven of the first nine matches to losing 4 games on the trot, Delhi’s IPL campaign has crashed big time. They now face a must a win situation where a loss will most probaly knock them out of the tournament. That’s how unpredictable cricket is. The problem for Delhi has been their batting as they’ve failed to cross the 150 run mark in the last three games. Neither Prithvi Shaw or Ajinkya Rahane has supported Shikhar Dhawan from the other end. Dhawan too has gone quite after his twin centuries. Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant and Shimron Hetmyer, all have been below par. The bowlers couldn’t have done much with such low scores but both Rabada and Anrich Nortje looks exhausted. These are not good signs for Delhi Capitals

RCB on the other hand are no different. They too have lost three back to back games and need a win to make it through to the playoffs. Just like Delhi, RCB has been led down by their batting. Individually, all their players have some runs behind them but as a team they’ve failed to deliver collective performances. RCB’s strength is their batting and if that’s not firing, you know they’re in big trouble. Virat Kohli will need his big players to step up in this crunch situation.  In Morris, Chahal and Saini, RCB have a decent bowling attack but with dew around, bowlers are mostly out of the game. The batsmen need to give them additional 30-40 runs to defend. As of now, both teams are on par on paper but we would back Delhi to emerge victorious.

Delhi Capitals Team News & Playing 11

DC Team News

Delhi Capitals are in a real mess. It's unbelievable that a team that won 7 off their first 9 matches in IPL 2020 are facing a must win situation. No one will argue that their batsmen have led them down in the last 4 games. Ideally, Delhi Capitals need to make changes to their playing XI but are they brave enough to take such decisions in this crunch game? - We don't think so. The only probable change we can expect from Shreyas Iyer is bringing in Akshar Patel in place of Praveen Dubey.

DC Key Players

  • Shikhar Dhawan - Shikhar Dhawan post his twin centuries have lost his way but he is one of DC's most trusted players. He'll be absolutely critical for Delhi against RCB.
  • Shreyas Iyer - Shreyas Iyer is having a fairly average tournament by his standard. Technically, he's the most accomplished batsmen in the Delhi camp and his team want their skipper to step up to the occasion and take them through to the playoffs.
  • Kagiso Rabada - Delhi doesn't have the best bowling attack in the tournament but Kagiso Rabada throughout the tournament has ensured that they look like one. Rabada will be RCB's biggest challenge. 

DC Team Form

Delhi has seen a massive dip in form, losing their last 4 matches comprehensively.

Royal Challengers Bangalore Team News & Playing 11

RCB Team News

Royal Challengers Bangalore is no different from their opponents in this match. They too are sliding down the hill big time. In terms of team combination, something is not clicking for Virat Kohli's team. RCB relies on a powerful batting line-up which hasn't fired in the last three matches.  Josh Philippe has done enough to retain his place in the playing XI. However we could see Kohli bringing in Shivam Dube in place of Gurkeerat Singh Mann. 

RCB  Key Players

  • Virat Kohli - Mr consistent has been among the runs through the tournament. Kohli is one player that enjoys pressure and his hunger to deliver his best in crunch situations makes him RCB's main asset.
  • AB de Villiers - AB de Villiers is the X factor in this RCB set up. We all know about his batting skills and in a do or die game, RCB can expect him to come good. 
  • Yuzvendra Chahal - Chahal has been the go through man for Virat Kohli in the situation of crisis. While dew will not make things easier for Chahal, he's a good enough bowler to deliver his best when his team needs him the most.
