IPL 2023 Match 20 RCB vs DC | Fantasy Tips, Prediction & Preview
Royal Challengers Bangalore will host Delhi Capitals in their upcoming match on Saturday. DC is yet to win any of their matches in the ongoing season and things are not looking good for them at the moment. RCB made a positive start to the season. However, things have gone bit down since then as they have lost 2 consecutive games and are now in the bottom half of the points table.
RCB's opening pair is in brilliant form as both Faf Du Plessis and Virat Kohli have scored 2 half-centuries each and will look to give the team another good start here. However, they faced a severe attack from Lucknow Super Giants in their last game. Their bowling in the middle overs has looked really poor, that is one area which the team management needs to address immediately.
Delhi Capitals skipper David Warner is leading from the front but his strike rate has been a major issue while the middle order batters are yet to perform well. Axar Patel's all-round performance will definitely boost their chances in the next match. DC are currently at the bottom of the points table. They need help in both the batting and bowling unit.
Bangalore will be looking to get back to winning ways while Delhi will be hoping to record their first victory in this season. DC bowlers have to do much better to help their team win. Captain David Warner will have to play more aggressively right from the start while RCB will expect their bowlers to perform exceptionally well against the Delhi Capitals.

Weather Conditions and pitch
Wanindu Hasaranga will likely to make a comeback after missing the first three games. He was the second leading wicket-taker in the last IPL. He is expected to replace David Willey for RCB.
For DC, Phil Salt is expected to get a nod ahead of Rovman Powell as he is not in his best form this season.
Probable Playing XI
Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) - Virat Kohli, Faf Du Plessis (c), Glenn Maxwell, MK Lomror, Shahbaz Ahmed, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Karn Sharma, Harshal Patel, WD Parnell, Wanindu Hasaranga, Mohammed Siraj.
Delhi Capitals (DC) - David Warner (c), Manish Pandey, Abishek Porel, Yash Dhull, Lalit Yadav, Axar Patel, Phil Salt (wk), A Nortje, Kuldeep Yadav, Mukesh Kumar, Mustafizur Rahman.
RCB - Virat Kohli is having another very strong IPL and is performing consistently so, he will be important player to pick from RCB's squad. Another crucial player is Faf Du Plessis, he has scored 70+ runs two times in three innings in this IPL.
DC - David Warner is making consistent runs at the top of the order while Axar Patel's all-round performance made both of them very important players from DC's camp. Axar's batting has developed to a very high level over the last 12 months which made him a top all-rounder.
RCB vs DC fantasy team
Captain and Vice-captain picks
Both teams are looking for a win as they have suffered more than all other teams. RCB has a better chance of making a comeback in this game as their top order is in good form. DC have struggled to find a winning combination so far and the batting looks particularly a weak spot for them. This match against Delhi Capitals is a good opportunity for RCB to move upwards in the points table. Looking to their current performances, the Royal Challengers are the best team to win this match.
