Royal Challengers Bangalore are set for a clash with Delhi Capitals in Match No.56 of the 2021 Indian Premier League today at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
The Capitals, led by Rishabh Pant, have already sealed their spot in the top two with a net run rate of 0.526.
RCB will be going into the game on the back of a four-run defeat at the hands of the Sunrisers Hyderabad. However, Virat Kohli and Co. has incentives in their final league game.
If RCB beat the Capitals by a good margin, they could topple the Chennai Super Kings to second overall
The pitch in Dubai has been a fairly good one for batting. But the bowlers have also had their say. Going by past records, chasing teams have found it easy to score runs. The track for the upcoming game is expected to be a tad on the slower side. Batting second should be the way forward.
Given that Bangalore put in Delhi to bat, and with chase master Kohli amongst its ranks, they just might edge out the Capitals in this one.
Current Score: DC are 25/0 in 3 overs
