RCB vs DC Match Preview

Practically, the road of Playoffs for RCB is crushed already. The maximum they can reach is up to 14 points, which is nowhere near the qualification mark. Virat Kohli said that they are not looking at the points table at the moment and just want to play good cricket, but this contest is all it takes for their fortune in the TATA IPL 2024.

They will clash against a side that will miss their regular skipper due to a match ban following continuous slow overrate matches. Delhi Capitals are in a better condition than RCB as they have won 6 out of 12. They can reach 16 points if they take down RCB and LSG in their last fixture.
