The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and the Delhi Capitals (DC) face off in what promises to be an encounter between the two in-form & top of the table teams at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. Both sides have recorded three wins in four matches. Victory in the game can make them the serious title contender for IPL 2020.
Dream11 IPL 2020 RCB vs DC Head to Head Matches & Predictions
RCB holds a comfortable 14-8 head-to-head advantage over DC.
A return to form for skipper Virat Kohli counts as another significant boost for RCB. Kohli, after starting the tournament poorly with three failures, finally hit top gear with an unbeaten 72 against Rajasthan Royals on Saturday.
DC captain Shreyas Iyer matched Kohli’s exploits, blasting an unbeaten 38-ball 88 in the win over Kolkata Knight Riders on Saturday.
Though he was expensive in the KKR encounter, DC’s Kagiso Rabada is among the best pacers in the tournament. Rabada’s contest against in-form RCB openers Devdutt Padikkal and Aaron Finch could well decide the fate of the match.
RCB offspiner Washington Sundar, who boasts of an incredible tournament economy rare of 4.72, will be tested by DC’s big hitters — Prithvi Shaw, Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant.

Although head coach Simon Katich has effectively ruled out changing a winning combination but still Dale Steyn has a outside chance to replace Adam Zampa as the pitches in Dubai are aiding swing and Steyn in the conditions can be handy.

Prithvi Shaw didn’t field in the second innings after being hit by a throw during batting and did limp around at the presentation. Amit Mishra hurt his fingers while trying to take a return catch and didn’t bowl out his overs.
