The 55th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 will be played between Delhi Capitals and Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi.
This match between the two teams will be a kind of quarterfinal, the winning team will reach the qualifiers-1. The winning team will reach the top two, so that team will have two chances to reach the final.
The last few matches have been very disappointing for both the teams here. While Shreyas Iyer and Co has lost all four previous encounters, Bangalore has also suffered three consecutive defeats. Both teams, full of star players, would like to regain the lost momentum and return to the winning track again.
Delhi Capitals was doing immensely good in the first half of the tournament as they defeated most of the teams in the first half. In the second half, the team’s performance started declining.
Royal Challengers Bangalore has also struggled in the last few matches after performing brilliantly in the first half. RCB has lost its last three matches. After this, once again the team’s dependence on Virat and de Villiers has started to be questioned.
Team’s opener Aaron Finch has not been able to do anything special, while Devdutt Paddikkal is in good form but has failed in the last few matches like Virat and de Villiers. Chris Morris and Navdeep Saini have also not been in rhythm in bowling. In such a situation, RCB will also be expected to perform better than their star players for the win.
