DC vs RCB IPL Match 22 Stats – Batting, Bowling, Team Records, Fantasy Cricket Dream11 Prediction Tips


DC vs RCB IPL: Delhi Capitals and Royal Challengers Bangalore are the two perennial underachievers in the IPL over the years. Despite having numerous superstars among their respective ranks, both teams are yet to win an IPL trophy. While RCB have made it to finals thrice, DC played their maiden final in the competition last year. If we take a look at their history, many would assume that it would be a reasonably tight contest when the two sides face each other in the Indian Premier League.


This is fairly visible from the numbers that Royal Challengers Bangalore have enjoyed an upper-hand in their contest against the Delhi-based franchise. They have dominated the Capitals everywhere including at their home, at Delhi Capitals’ home, and at neutral venues as well.
