Indian Premier League 2023: The 20th league match of the 16th season of IPL will be played between Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Delhi Capitals (DC) at the RCB team’s home ground M. Chinnaswamy Stadium. If we see the journey of both the teams so far in this season, then it cannot be called good enough. The RCB team started the season with a spectacular 8-wicket win against Mumbai Indians.
After this, the Royal Challengers Bangalore team has faced consecutive defeats in the next 2 matches. Where the team got a big defeat of 81 runs against Kolkata, in the last match against Lucknow, the team had to face defeat on the last ball of the match, losing by 1 wicket. At present the team is at 7th position on the points table with 2 points.
Talking about the Delhi Capitals team, they have faced defeat in all the 4 matches played so far this season. Under the captaincy of David Warner, the team has failed miserably in both the bowling and batting department this season. Till now only Captain Warner has played some important innings for the team with the bat.
If we talk about the pitch of this match played at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore, it can be said to be completely suitable for batting. In such a situation, defending a score of more than 200 in this match will not be an easy task for the team. The team winning the toss would like to decide to bowl first so that the target can be easily chased. So far, out of 83 matches played on this ground, the team chasing the target has won 46 times.
