Indian Premier League 2020, Match 19
Date & Time: 05 October, 2020 at 7:30PM IST
Dubai Cricket Stadium, UAE
The exciting weekends are over. And to start of the busy weekdays, we have an exciting clash lined-up between the table-toppers Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Capitals. Both teams are in tremendous form and are coming after securing thumping wins against their opponents on the last Saturday. Both teams are evenly matched and it’s tough to pick just one among these two. Purely looking at the team balance, DC who has a better all-round team is expected to have a slightly higher chance than RCB to win this match. That being said, it’s tough to bet for this match as both teams are evenly matched. Even the betting sites have placed almost equal odds for both teams. And if you still wish to bet, then place your money on Delhi Capitals.

Delhi Capitals to win this match
Head to Head (overall)
Head to Head (in UAE)
It’s the best versus the best. A fight for the number one position. Both teams are placed at the top of the points table and rightly so both teams are well settled, and have found out their best eleven. And for that reason, no big changes are expected. RCB who won convincingly against the Rajasthan Royals looked perfect in all departments of the game. And with captain Virat Kohli finding back his form, they’ll be hard to stop. Their only area of concern is death bowling, if Udana and Saini can restrict the flow of runs at the death, then they can pose a great threat to the strong DC batting line-up.
DC on the other hand has the most well-settled eleven among all eight teams. They found out their best eleven right from the word go. Prithvi Shaw who got injured during the last match is doubtful for this match. He didn’t come out to field in the second innings of the last match. In that case, Ajinkya Rahane may replace him in the eleven. Shaw’s injury is not that serious, and hence the chances of him itself playing this match cannot be completely discarded.
RCB Playing 11: Devdutt Padikkal, Aaron Finch, Virat Kohli, AB De Villiers, Gurkeerat Singh, Shivam Dube, Washington Sundar, Isuru Udana, Adam Zampa, Navdeep Saini, Yuzvendra Chahal
DC Playing 11: Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw/ Ajinkya Rahane, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Shimron Hetmyer, Marcus Stoinis, Harshal Patel, Amit Mishra, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje

RCB- AB De Villiers/ Devdutt Padikkal
Both these RCB batsmen are in their best form. Padikkal has hit 3 fifties in the 4 matches that he has played so far. And ABD as always is finishing games with great ease. Bet on them to deliver as always.
DC- Shreyas Iyer
The DC captain is in the form of his life. After putting up run-a-ball performances in the first three matches, he went all guns blazing against KKR in Sharjah. Expect him to continue the same form.
Other Prominent options: Prithvi Shaw, Devdutt Padikkal, Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan
RCB- Yuzvendra Chahal
Long boundaries, spin-friendly conditions, and his current form make him the most ideal choice to grab the most number of wickets in this match. As for IPL betting tips, bet on him to take the maximum wickets.
DC- Kagiso Rabada
Probably the best fast bowler in this edition of the IPL so far, he had been creating havoc at the death overs. Trust on him to deliver as always.
Other prominent options: Anrich Nortje, Navdeep Saini, Washington Sundar, Ravichandran Ashwin
DC- Prithvi Shaw/ Shreyas Iyer
RCB- AB de Villiers
Player of the Match
As per our prediction, DC is most likely to win this match, if that is to be the case, the one man who is capable of dismantling the RCB top order and cleaning up their weak lower middle order and tail is Kagiso Rabada. We expect him to take many wickets in this match, and hence he is our prediction for the ‘ Player of the Match' category.
