Royal Challengers Bangalore vs. Delhi Capitals: 20th IPL Match Preview

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will face Delhi Capitals in the match 20 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) in Bengaluru on Sunday.

The game is a pretty much do-or-die clash for the home side as they are placed on the bottom of the league table after failing to win a single match in the competition so far.

Therefore, Virat Kohli-led unit will know that another poor result on Sunday will mean that their tournament might well be over.

In the batting department, RCB will be depending on the likes of Kohli, AB de Villiers and Marcus Stoinis to score bulk of the runs, whereas in the bowling department, the onus will be on the likes of Tim Southee, Yuzvendra Chahal and Mohammed Siraj to provide timely breakthroughs.

On the other hand, Delhi Capitals will come in the match in a relatively better position on the league table as they've won two matches out of five.

However, Shreyas Iyer-led unit have suffered back-to-back defeats in their previous two matches against Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kings XI Punjab, and therefore, they will have to produce a much better show in the match against RCB.

In the batting department, the team will be relying on the likes of Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, captain Iyer, Rishabh Pant and Colin Ingram to score bulk of the runs, whereas on the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of Chris Morris, Axar Patel, Kagiso Rabada and Sandeep Lamichhane
