Delhi Capitals vs Royal Challengers Bangalore IPL 2020

In this article, we look at Delhi vs Bangalore, the upcoming match 55 of IPL 2020 at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi, on Nov 2, 2020. The high stakes encounter between the sides will be a battle of nerves, with both teams vying to be among the top two on the league table. Read on for our match prediction.

Match Analytics and Odds

There is not much to choose between the sides, though Virat Kohli’s men lost their previous game against DC on October 5. Both sides have had seven wins from 12 matches played. To ensure their respective spots in the playoffs, both DC and RCB need to win at least one of their remaining matches. DC have the tougher job on hand, with a match against MI scheduled on October 31. On the same day, RCB will face off against Sunrisers Hyderabad. If both DC and RCB win on October 31, the result of the game on November 2 will help decide which team will finish among the top two. Mumbai with eight wins in 12 games played have already qualified for the playoffs.

If both DC and RCB lose on October31, the loser of the match on November 2 will not be assured of a playoff spot. Both DC and RCB have lost back-to-back games. While DC have lost to KKR and SRH, RCB have been defeated by CSK and MI, losses that have exposed the over-reliance of RCB’s batting on Kohli and De Villiers. Shivam Dube looked clueless in the match against MI. RCB must consider promoting Morris in the batting order and playing an additional bowler (Saini) in place of Dube.  Also, Udana must replace Steyn. In their last game on October 27, DC lost by 88 runs to Sunrisers Hyderabad; the margin of defeat hurt DC’s net run rate while exposing their batting order predicament.
