Contents

With the Pandemic surging forward and a few players are planning an exit, today’s clash would be a mouth-watering encounter for sure between DC and RCB.

Both teams have faced each other on 26 occasions, and RCB has won 15 against DC. DC have won 10, with one match abandoned.

Two strong contenders for the coveted IPL cup clash today, with only the run-rate distinguishing their performances.DC is marginally ahead of RCB in second Place after RCB receiving a sound thrashing at the hands of CSK, which was least expected.

The current edition of the IPL, the 14th, has reached its 19th day. We had also had the taste of a super-over match, which should have happened before as many matches went down the wire.

Kheltalk.com analyzes the strength and weaknesses of the two teams and an overview of DC VS RCB Head to Head Record in the history of the Indian Premier League.

DC:

DC vs RCB

The Delhi Capitals team underwent a radical transformation in 2018 and has played better than before. They ended up as Runners -Up in the last edition even though many felt it was a lopsided final.

Despite losing their captain Shreyas Iyer, the DC army has performed well under Rishab Pant.

The opening pair has rarely failed, and the middle order has lent support. They have even survived the Super over contest against SRH with a last-ball victory.

DC has more than a nose ahead against RCB as they have beaten them in 2019 and 2020 without surrendering a solo defeat. Despite this, the head-to-head comparison shows DC having won only ten matches to RCB’s 15. The dominance of RCB over DC can be seen here.

DC has a class bowling act with Chris Woakes and Rabada. The surprise element was, of course, Avesh Khan. He has tipped the scale in a few encounters this year, favoring his team.

There is no doubt that DC players jell well, and they would not leave any stones unturned in their journey to the playoffs.

RCB:

The rejuvenated team started their journey well by defeating the Champions MI in the first game. The juggernaut rolled unstoppably till CSK took them on.RCB needs to wake up from the fairy tale beginning as they take on DC, who has tormented them over the past two years.

Virat and Padikkal are opening for RCB, but the captain needs to step up more than a notch to keep pace with his under- study. Padikkal has bloomed at the right time and has an unbeaten century under his belt. Even though Maxwell started well, he seems to be heading in the wrong direction once again. AB DE Villiers, the mainstay of RCB, also has been inconsistent.

The bowling department rallied around Harshal Patel; the X factor was taken to the cleaners by CSK a couple of nights back. Harshal has to leave behind that final over, in which Jadeja scored 37 runs equalling the IPL record for most runs in an over.

Cometh the hour, cometh the captain. It is up to Virat to prove that he is the best batsman globally, which has turned its gaze to Babar Azam. If he posts a good opening partnership score, the Red Brigade has every chance of a victory against DC.
