The Royal Challengers Bangalore have defeated the Delhi Capitals in 14 out of 23 games while one match yielded no result.
The 19th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 will be played between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Capitals at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai.
This game is scheduled to start at 07:30 PM IST (06:00 PM local time) (02:00 PM UTC). The game will be telecasted on the Star Sports Network (Available in English, Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Bengali). Also, live streaming will be available on Disney+ Hotstar.
After some dismay and frustrating performances in the last three seasons, the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) seem to have found their best combinations at last in this season. With some new additions to their side and with a few changes in the leadership group with Simon Katich and Mike Hesson coming in, they have got back on track. The team managed to win three out of their first four games this season and are placed at a very good position on the points table.
However, in their upcoming match, they will be facing the Delhi Capitals (DC). The Capitals have been just as good as the Challengers, if not better. They won their first two matches before the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) thumped them. However, they bounced back with an 18-run win against the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and surely have one of the best bowling line-ups in IPL 2020. They would be confident about restricting RCB and registering a victory.
