RCB vs DC Prediction: Toss, Pitch, Cricket Betting Tips for Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Delhi Capitals IPL 2020 Match 55

RCB vs DC Prediction: The most important match of the IPL 2020 league stage is right here. With just one match remaining in the league phase after this one, and with three playoffs spots still in place, this match between RCB and DC can be considered as a quarter-final. The winner of this match will qualify directly for the playoffs and will join MI for Qualifier 1. Whereas the loser will have to fight it out with KKR and SRH (if they win tomorrow) for the remaining playoffs spot. If SRH loses tomorrow, then the loser of this match automatically qualifies for the playoffs. Whereas if SRH wins tomorrow, the loser of this match will have to take this game as deep as possible to avoid falling behind KKR in the net run rate.

To avoid this scenario:

RCB should not lose by more than 17 runs/ 18.3 overs.
DC should not lose by more than 14 runs/ 18.5 overs.

Delhi Capitals vs Royal Challengers Bangalore
Indian Premier League 2020, Match 55
Date & Time: 02 November, 2020 at 7:30PM IST
Sheik Zayed Cricket Stadium, Abu Dhabi, UAE

What has been the biggest highlight of India's tour of Australia 2020-21?

Strength

Delhi Capitals:

  • DC has a strong batting line-up. Top-4 packed by top Indian batsmen along with Hetmyer and Stoinis makes them a strong force.
  • The Proteas duo of Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje has been impressive in this tournament so far.
  • The current batting form of their captain Shreyas Iyer is a huge boost to this Delhi side.
  • A well balanced and settled batting eleven.

Royal Challengers Bangalore:

  • They have a strong batting line-up on paper.
  • Presence of genuine match-winners like Kohli, Chahal, ABD, and Padikkal who can single-handedly win matches for their team.
  • Strong spin attack. The duo of Washington Sundar and Yuzi Chahal seems to work well.

Weakness

Delhi Capitals:

  • The form of Rishab Pant and the inconsistency of Prithvi Shaw is something to be looked at.
  • With 4 consecutive losses, DC is struggling for form.

Royal Challengers Bangalore:

  • Morris is the only bankable pacer in the death overs. Saini, Udana, and Siraj need to step up in that phase of the innings.
  • If the top 4 batsmen fail, then RCB is in very serious trouble. It was quite evident from the last match.

DC VS RCB MATCH PREDICTION

With qualifications at stake, both these teams are expected to field their best eleven. The fact that these two teams have tasted huge success with a well-settled eleven in the early part of the tournament will help them to identify the same, unlike the other teams. For RCB, they may bring in Shivam Dube in place of Gurkeerat who failed miserably in the last match. One among both Saini and Siraj is expected to retain their places, even with below-par performances as no other good Indian pace bowling replacements are available. RCB may also look to bring in an extra batting option in place of either of Siraj/ Saini. Parthiv Patel looks to be the man suited to be that extra batting option.

DC on the other hand is not expected to make any changes. Despite the failure in the last few matches, they are expected to retain the same eleven, as it the one which has given them the most success.

DC Playing XI: Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Shimron Hetmyer, Marcus Stoinis, Axar Patel, Harshal Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje

RCB Playing XI: Joshua Philippe, Devdutt Padikkal, Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Shivam Dube, Washington Sundar, Parthiv Patel/ Shahbaz Ahmed, Chris Morris, Isuru Udana, Yuzvendra Chahal, Navdeep Saini
