RCB have not been at their usual best this season and will look to avoid defeats as they come. They are currently 8th in the points table after 3 games with just 2 points. The nrr is a -0.800.
Batting wise they have the batters and will look to make the most of. Bowling wise they will need to be disciplined in their showing.
Head coach Sanjay Bangar and his men will need to execute the tactics well.
On the other hand, Delhi Capitals too have not been at their usual best and will have to be clinical. They are currently last in the points table after 4 matches with 0 points. Their nrr is a -1.576.
Batting wise their batsman will have to get used to the nuances of T20 cricket and deliver. On the bowling front they will have to utilise their bowlers well.

As for the playing surface it will be good for batting.
