Hello and welcome to Sportstar’s Live coverage of Match 19 of IPL 2020 between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Capitals at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai.
Huge blow for Delhi as ace spinner Amit Mishra has been ruled out for the remainder of IPL 2020
Overall Head-to-Head: (23 matches- DC 8 | RCB 14)
DC and RCB have faced each other 23 times in the IPL so far with Bengaluru leading the head-to-head at 14-8. Their fixture in the 2015 edition, scheduled to be played at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru, was abandoned due to rain.
Recent Head-to-Head: (Last 5 matches)
Bangalore has dominated the recent head-to-head, winning three of the five previous matches against Capitals.
The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and the Delhi Capitals (DC) face off in what promises to be an exciting encounter between two form teams at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. Both sides have recorded three wins in four matches, making the right moves to be counted as early title contenders.
RCB can take comfort in holding a 14-8 head-to-head advantage over DC.
A return to form for skipper Virat Kohli counts as another significant boost for RCB. Kohli, after starting the tournament poorly with three failures, finally hit top gear with an unbeaten 72 against Rajasthan Royals on Saturday.
