RCB vs DC Preview

After a terrific start, Royal Challengers Bangalore will take on Delhi Capitals in match 19 of the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).

The two teams will lock horns on October 5 (Monday) at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai

Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore shut all their critics after a wonderful start in the tournament so far. RCB players have impressed everyone with their performance in all three departments of the game. Moreover, skipper Kohli too found his lost touch in the last clash after a scintillating knock of 72* runs.

RCB looks quite settled at the moment and has also dealt well with its weak link, death bowling. As a result, Virat Kohli and co. may take the field with the same playing XI in their clash against DC.

The story is even better for the Capitals as they comfortably sit at the top of the Points Table. With three comprehensive wins in four matches, DC has collected six crucial points so far in the tournament. Just like Kohli, DC skipper Shreyas Iyer also played a terrific knock in his last game against Kolkata Knight Riders.

With a balanced combination and calm dugout, the Delhi-based franchise is also expected to play the same XI. The presence of many experienced Indian batsmen in their lineup will help them facing tricky spin bowling of Chahal and Zampa.
