IPL 2023 Match 20, RCB vs DC Match Prediction – Who will win today’s IPL match between RCB vs DC

After two back-to-back defeats in IPL 2023, Royal Challengers Bangalore will host Delhi Capitals in their upcoming match. Notably, the David Warner-led side is yet to win any of their matches in the ongoing season and things are not looking good for them at the moment. The skipper is leading from the front but his strike rate has been a major issue while the middle-order batters are yet to come to the party, Bowlers have been decent so far but there’s still room for improvement. Meanwhile, Axar Patel’s form will definitely boost their chances in the next match.

When it comes to the host, Bangalore suffered a heart-breaking defeat in their last match against Lucknow. Their bowling in the middle overs has looked really poor and Nicholas Pooran and Marcus Stoinis had no problem whatsoever hitting for fun. That is one area that the team management needs to address immediately. Batting-wise, Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis are in sublime form at the moment and Glenn Maxwell too showed his class in the previous match. There indeed are positives but a lot needs to get sorted.

RCB vs DC Pitch Report

The surface at the Chinnaswamy Stadium will hugely favour the batting unit. No target is usually safe on this ground and thus, the team batting first needs to wreak havoc right from the start. Bowling first will be ideal on this wicket.

RCB vs DC Probable Best Performers

Probable best batter
Faf du Plessis:
Skipper Faf du Plessis has been in sublime form in the ongoing tournament. In three matches so far, the 38-year-old has smashed 175 runs at a strike rate of 173.26. He can score runs at a quick rate in the middle overs and that is a big plus point for RCB.

Probable best bowler
Anrich Nortje:
The express pacer Anrich Nortje has picked up two wickets in the three matches so far. Now, in Chinnaswamy, where the pacers often get smashed, Nortje can prove to be lethal with the ball because he can generate extra pace and bounce to trouble the batters.
