Venue: Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi
Match Timings: 3:30 PM IST
The match will be telecasted on Star Sports Network and viewers can also see the live match on Disney+ Hotstar.
Both DC and RCB got complacent in the last few matches and are now in a must-win situation. The side that wins will automatically qualify for the playoffs and join defending champions Mumbai Indians. On the other hand, the side that loses will be hoping that MI can somehow defeat SRH and they can sneak in the playoffs.
Royal Challengers Bangalore have lost their last 3 matches and have only got themselves to blame. In the previous match, their batsmen once again failed as they were handed a heavy defeat. There’s no room for error now if they hope to advance further in the competition.
DC too has been failing in the last 4 matches and have ended up on the losing side. They are struggling with the bat which was their force in the first half of the competition. Shreyas Iyer and his team need to bring their A-game as RCB are expected to be aggressive during the key match.

Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Delhi Capitals: Top Fantasy Picks
Shikhar Dhawan: After his golden run with the bat Dhawan’s brilliant form has evaded him in the last few encounters. However, Dhawan is a big match player and should be a member of your fantasy XI.
Kagiso Rabada: The wicket-taker of the Delhi Capitals will be striving to knock off the top order of the RCB. Rabada too should be a sure-shot pick in your fantasy XI as he has been ruthless with his performances in every game.
Virat Kohli: All eyes will be on Kohli the batsman against Delhi Capitals. He has failed on the last two occasions but he is never far away from leading from the front with the bat. RCB needs Kohli to fire and inspire his side to victory in a virtual knockout match.
Devdutt Padikkal: The RCB opener has been in terrific batting form throughout the IPL 2020 season. When Padikkal clicks it automatically takes the pressure off Kohli and De Villiers and it helps RCB to post a big total.
