IPL 2020: RCB vs DC- Preview, Head To Head, Prediction & Post Match Review

In quest of their fourth win of Dream11 IPL 2020, Royal Challengers Bangalore will square off against Delhi Capitals at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Monday.

RCB started their campaign on a winning note against Sunrisers Hyderabad before losing against Kings XI Punjab. However, the Virat Kohli-led unit bounced back in style and registered two back-to-back wins. First, they defeated Mumbai Indians in a Super Over-thriller and in their fourth game, sealed a comprehensive win against Rajasthan Royals.

DC too made a winning start to their IPL 2020 journey after beating KXIP in a Super Over. The Shreyas Iyer-led side won their second game on the bounce, defeating Chennai Super Kings by 44 runs. However, in their third game, DC were toppled by Sunrisers Hyderabad. But the side returned to winning ways after beating Kolkata Knight Riders in their last game.

A win in tonight’s game, will propel one of the teams to the top of the points table.

DC beat RCB by 59 runs!

Today DC was in a really good form. They excelled at batting as well as bowling. Whereas, RCB could not live up to their last performance against RR.

In the first innings, DC had a well maintained opening partnership of more than 65 runs but their captain could not score much this time. RCB contained DC successfully in the middle overs but were not able to do the same in the last few overs. Marcus Stoinis was hitting one boundary after another. He scored 53 runs of 26 balls out of which 6 were fours and 2 were sixes. Rishabh pant also helped in hitting some boundaries to increase the total.

In the second innings, RCB played well in the first 2 or 3 overs but after that, their batting line up collapsed. Everyone except their captain played irresponsibly and got out quickly. But, DC’s bowling was just exceptional today especially Kagiso Rabada with 4 wickets and an economy rate of just 6! Even Axar Patel bowled well with 2 wickets and an economy rate of less than 5.

Overall DC’s performance has been just too good this game in both batting and bowling, but RCB wasn’t able to keep patience while batting and could not contain DC’s batsman in the death overs.


Ashwin doesn’t ‘Mankad’ Finch for leaving his crease.

No, not this time. R Ashwin just gives Aaron Finch a warning at the non-striker’s end. I can imagine Ashwin resisting the temptation to mankad Finch. :grinning:

A run-out missed would have proved costly had DC been on the flipped side of the win. I guess at the end of the day fair play does pay off. :slightly_smiling_face:

Apparently Ashwin did pay heed to Ponting’s advice where there was an agreement between them of no mankad incidents this season. While Ashwin stayed true to his word, Ponting sitting in the dugout was seen smiling to see it happen.

The ‘Mankad’ debate has been a topic of debate ever since Ashwin dismissed Rajasthan Royal’s Jos Buttler in IPL 2019. When Ponting, in the lead-up to the tournament, was asked if he had spoken to Ashwin about it, the former Australian captain made it clear that he will not allow Ashwin to do the same while playing for the Delhi Capitals.


A big big win for DC! RCB roller coaster ride continues…

  • Highest total ever vs RCB

  • Biggest win margin ever vs RCB

  • Axar Patel Man of the Match

  • DC go top of the table with 8 points
