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.
DC and RCB were once marching towards a spot in the playoffs. However, after suffering four and three successive defeats respectively at the back end of the tournament, one of them may be in danger of missing out on a place in the final four.
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.
Probable XI: Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Marcus Stoinis, Shimron Hetmyer, Harshal Patel, Kagiso Rabada, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Anrich Nortje
Royal Challengers Bangalore:
Probable XI: Devdutt Padikkal, Josh Philippe, Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Washington Sundar, Gurkeerat Singh/Shivam Dube, Chris Morris, Isuru Udana/Moeen Ali, Mohammad Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal, Navdeep Saini
