RCB vs DC Today Match Prediction & Tips

Royal Challengers Bengaluru vs Delhi Capitals T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2024

RCB will play DC in the 62nd match of the IPL 2024. The game will be played at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru and will start at 7:30 PM IST on May 12th.

A virtual knockout awaits RCB and Delhi Capitals at the Chinnaswamy Stadium. RCB seem to have found form in recent few games, winning four out of four games. However, disastrous start to the tournament meant that reaching the playoffs is still a tough ask. RCB can’t afford to lose any of the remaining two games as a defeat will knock them out of the tournament. The team has momentum with them and the big wins in last four matches have improved their run rate as well. The chances are still grim though as the team needs other results to go their way.

Meanwhile, Delhi Capitals also have been in good form recently after an inconsistent start. They have won four out of the last six games. A win for Delhi Capitals is also a must to keep their playoff hopes alive. They won’t be knocked out of the tournament if they lose against RCB, but the probability of qualifying will take a massive dip. The explosive batting by RCB and DC have resulted in the team’s turnaround in IPL 2024 thus the coming game should deliver a blockbuster contest.

RCB vs DC Match Toss Prediction

It’s a no brainer that captain winning the toss will chase here. It is a small ground and even a score of 220 is not a safe score to defend.

RCB vs DC Pitch Report

The wicket at the Chinnaswamy Stadium has been nothing less than a graveyard for the bowlers. No swing, not much spin either, thus bowlers need to be impeccable with lines and deceive batters in the air to get wickets. A score of 220-230 is a bare minimum on this pitch.

Bengaluru Weather Report

It should be a clear day with temperature in mid 20s. The humidity will be 54 percent while wind speed will be 14km/h.

RCB Team News & Playing 11

RCB Team News

RCB have been on a four match winning run and the combination seems to be working fine for the team. They won’t be tinkering with the winning combination at such a crucial juncture of the tournament.

RCB Key Players

  • Virat Kohli-  Virat Kohli has set the IPL 2024 ablaze with a stunning show. Kohli has been unstoppable, piling on runs for fun. He leads the charts of most runs this season with 634 runs.
  • Rajat Patidar- Rajat Patidar has found form after a slow start. He scored a magnificent 23 ball 55 against PBKS. He has scored 268 runs, including four fifties at a strike rate of 183. However, most runs have come in latter end of the tournament.
  • Cameron Green- Cameron Green scored much needed 46 runs against PBKS. The innings should give him a lot of confidence. Green is a valuable addition to the RCB side given his all-round skills. Green has had an ordinary season so far but he can make up for that with a few match winning performances in the remaining games.
  • Mohammed Siraj- Mohammed Siraj was horribly out of touch at the start of the tournament but he found his mojo back in the last couple of games. He bagged the Man of the Match award against GT after picking two crucial wickets while he accounted for three wickets against PBKS in last game that paved way for RCB’s emphatic win.

RCB Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Yash Dayal, Suyash Prabudessai, Anuj Rawat, V Vyshak, Mayank Dagar.

RCB will most go with either Yash Dayal or Suyash Prabhudessai as impact player. In a chase, Prabhudessai will get a nod while Yash Dayal may come in if RCB have to defend a score.

RCB Team Form

RCB have picked great form in the latter end of the tournament. They have comprehensively won all four previous games.

RCB Predicted Playing 11

Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis (c), Will Jacks, Rajat Patidar, Mahipal Lomror, Cameron Green, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Swapnil Singh, Karn Sharma, Mohammed Siraj, Lockie Ferguson

DC Team News & Playing 11

DC Team News

Delhi Capitals have also done well with the combination and there don’t seem to be a need for a change in playing XI. Expect Delhi Capitals to go with an unchanged combination.

DC Key Players

  • Jake Frazer McGurk- Jake Frazer McGurk has played like a tornado in IPL 2024. He has already scored three fifties under 20 balls this season. Overall, he has scored 309 runs in 7 matches, with four fifties.
  • Tristan Stubbs- Tristan Stubbs has played a big role in Capitals turnaround. Coming late in the order, Stubbs has played multiple cameos for the side. He has scored 318 runs at a strike rate of 188.
  • Kuldeep Yadav- Kuldeep Yadav has been the biggest match winner with the ball for Capitals. He has taken 14 wickets in nine matches this season and by far has been the most consistent spinner in the tournament.
  • Axar Patel- Axar Patel is a valuable addition to any team he plays for. With 164 runs and 10 wickets, he has made a vital contribution to the Delhi Capitals’ Campaign.

DC Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Rasikh Salam, Kumar Kushagra, Praveen Dubey,  Lalit Yadav, Anrich Nortje

Rasikh Salam has bowled beautifully for Delhi Capitals and should be the impact player for Delhi Capitals if they are bowling first. In case DC is chasing, he will switch roles with Abishek Porel, with the left hand batter being the impact player and Salam in playing XI.

DC Team Form

The Capitals have been very consistent in the previous few games, winning four out of the six games. Overall, they have six wins and as many defeats.

DC Predicted Playing 11

Jake Fraser-McGurk, Abishek Porel/Rasikh Salam, Shai Hope, Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Tristan Stubbs, Gulbadin Naib, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Mukesh Kumar, Ishant Sharma, Khaleel Ahmed

RCB vs DC Betting Odds

RCB are favourites to win at 1.76. The team is on a four match winning run and playing at home will be an advantage.

Who will win Royal Challengers Bengaluru vs Delhi Capitals T20 Match?

We would suggest backing RCB as winners. While both teams have been good in last few games, what gives RCB an edge over DC is one man – Virat Kohli. Kohli makes RCB batting look stable. Given Kohli’s form, RCB would need just a couple of players to play good innings to get to a big score. For DC, they have been mostly reliant on Jake Frazer McGurk and Tristan Stubbs so if they lose early wickets, DC have more chances of getting bundled out for low score.
