While DC held themselves against RR in the last match to stay alive in the race, RCB after having won four consecutive wins in five matches have come out from the brink of being ruled out this season. Both teams will find themselves leading and trailing in one aspect or the other. While the Capitals are ahead of RCB with 12 points with two games left, the latter have a healthy run-rate which is likely to soar if they manage to win their remaining encounters.

DC, however, will be without their captain Rishabh Pant, who on Saturday was suspended by the BCCI for one match after he breached the IPL Code of Conduct over maintaining slow over-rate in the match against Rajasthan Royals earlier this week. In his stead, Axar Patel will lead the team.

DC will be counting on performances from their bombshells Jake Fraser-McGurk and Abhishek Porel in the opening order backed by spinner Kuldeep Yadav in the bowling unit. As for RCB, they’ll set their eyes on Virat Kohli for yet another carnage on home turf. The bowling unit led by the likes of Mohammad Siraj and Lockie Ferguson will also be up for the challenge.
