DC vs RCB

Delhi Capitals and Royal Challengers Bangalore are the two perennial underachievers in the IPL over the years. Despite having the numerous superstars among their respective ranks, both teams are yet to win the IPL trophy. While RCB have made it to the final thrice, DC haven’t played even a single final in the competition so far. 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.

DC vs RCB Head to Head

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.

Last meetings

Delhi Capitals trumped Royal Challengers Bangalore during the 2019 edition both in their home and away game. At M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Delhi skipper Shreyas Iyer won the toss and invited RCB to bat first. Soon the bowlers of Delhi Capitals made sure the decision of bowling first was a right one as they restricted the mighty batting of RCB to a below-par RCB vs DC 2019 scorecard of 149/8 in 20 overs. Only RCB’s skipper Virat Kohli (41 runs off 33 deliveries) and Moeen Ali (32 runs off 18 deliveries) could put up a fight with the bat. South African pacers Kagiso Rabada and Chris Morris were the stars for the visitors as they ended up with 4 and 2 wickets respectively. Chasing the target during RCB vs DC live score, Delhi Capitals didn’t face much trouble courtesy a brilliant knock of 67 runs by Shreyas Iyer. Alongside the skipper, the handy contributions from Prithvi Shaw (28 runs) and Colin Ingram (22 runs) meant Delhi chased down the target with 4 wickets in hand and 7 balls to spare. Navdeep Saini was the best bowler for RCB as the pacer finished with the figures of 2 for 24 in his quota of 4 overs.

The reverse fixture, played at Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi, was a thrilling encounter. Once again, Shreyas Iyer got lucky with the toss, but this time they opted to bat first. Delhi were off to flyer courtesy Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw. However, Prithvi Shaw could not last long on the crease and soon departed off the bowling of Umesh Yadav. From there, Shikhar Dhawan and Shreyas Iyer built a strong partnership and completed their respective fifties. Both players soon departed after reaching their individual milestones. While Shreyas Iyer scored 52 runs off 37 deliveries, Shikhar Dhawan played a knock of 50 runs off 37 deliveries. Sherfane Rutherford (28 runs of 13 deliveries) and Axar Patel (16 runs off 9 deliveries) applied the finishing touches and took the DC vs RCB live score to 187/5 in 20 overs.

Chasing down the massive total on DC vs RCB scorecard 2019, the Royal Challengers showed the intent early as they completed 60 runs within the powerplay. However, both openers soon fell after a great start to the chase. While Parthiv Patel (39 runs off 20 deliveries) got out on the 5th delivery of the 6th over, Virat Kohli (23 runs off 17 deliveries) was dismissed on the 2nd delivery of the 8th over. From there, RCB struggled to keep up with the chase and lost the wickets on the regular intervals. Only Marcus Stoinis (32 runs) and Gurkeerat Singh Mann (27 runs) could put up a fight. It wasn’t enough for RCB, and they fell short to the target by 16 runs. Both Kagiso Rabada and Amit Mishra finished with 2 wickets each in their kitty for the Capitals to star in the RCB vs DC score.
