DC are all set to face RCB on Monday. While RCB, unlike the previous season have been very consistent and have been on a winning streak, DC too haven’t really struggled and are performing consistency. Their skipper Iyer himself has been in good form. Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Capitals, two in-form teams, clash on Monday in Match 19 of the Indian Premier League 2020 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

Both teams have played four matches each and ended up on the winning side thrice this season. In their previous matches, an all-round performance from RCB resulted in them defeating Rajasthan Royals on Saturday while Delhi clinched victory over Kolkata Knight Riders on the same day.

Date and Time:

October 5, 7.30 pm IST (6 pm UAE time).

Delhi Capitals:


DC have no real reason to change their XI and might just field the same team which played against KKR. They would want their seniors pro Dhawan to get a big score. Delhi’s batting department had a blast in their last match against KKR. Skipper Shreyas Iyer led from the front and played a sensational knock of 88 in just 38 balls, smashing seven fours and six maximums. In four matches so far, he is averaging 56.66 and has a strike rate of 150.

DC Predicted Playing XI:

Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw/Ajinkya Rahane, Shreyas Iyer (c), Rishabh Pant (wk), Shimron Hetmyer, Marcus Stoinis, Ravichandran Ashwin,Amit Mishra, Harshal Patel, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje


Royal Challengers Bangalore:


Good news for RCB is that their captain, leader and legend Virat Kohli is back in form. He played a superb unbeaten knock of 72 against Rajasthan, helping his team to chase down 155. The team’s spinners– Washington Sundar and Yuzvendra Chahal also bowled impressive spells.It’s unlikely that Kohli will change his winning combination against Delhi.

RCB Predicted Playing XI:

Devdutt Padikkal, Aaron Finch, Virat Kohli (c), AB de Villiers (wk), Shivam Dube, Gurkeerat Singh Mann, Isuru Udana, Washington Sundar, Adam Zampa/Dale Steyn, Navdeep Saini, Yuzvendra Chahal
