Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will lock horns with Delhi Capitals (DC) in the 56th match of IPL 2021 at the Dubai International Stadium on Friday.
RCB would want to get back on the winning track after losing a last-over thriller against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in their previous game. On the other hand, DC have already secured a place in the top two and would want to carry a winning momentum into the playoffs.
