Delhi Capitals (DC) will take on Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in match 55 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 at Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Monday.

Pitch report

The pitch on offer at Sheikh Zayed Stadium is a decent one to bat on, with scores of over 170 being notched up regularly in the last few matches. The bowlers should get some movement off the surface, with the pitch slowing down as the game progresses.


With dew playing a huge part in the last few matches, both teams will look to chase upon winning the toss with 180 being a highly competitive total at this venue.
