The Delhi Capitals came into the IPL with their new name in 2019 after previously being known as the Delhi Daredevils. It was a big move for them off the field, and their hope is that they can use that to become a force on the field, winning games like this DC vs RCB clash. They have plenty to turn around though; they are the only team to never reach an IPL final, something they got a little closer to last season but still missed out.
The Arun Jaitley Stadium is home for the Capitals, and they will be looking to turn that into a fortress with their new team name pushing them forward. They would love to bring success to the region of Delhi, something that has been missing for many years. They have out the work in off the field, but can they make things work when their eleven players take to the cricket pitch and play?

DC vs RCB
The Royal Challengers Bangalore are another team never to win the IPL title, but they have played in finals in the past, something that Delhi haven’t. Their finals record is certainly something to worry about though, they’ve played three and lost them all, so psychologically it will be hard for them if they ever come close again. They play their home games at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, and fans there have been waiting a long time for success, can it happen this season?
DC vs RCB 2019
The DC vs RCB 2019 meeting was a game that the Delhi Capitals won after posting a very good total during their first innings. The home side won the toss and decided to bat first, and they reached 187/5 from their 20 overs thanks to 50s from Shreyas Iyer and Shikhar Dhawan. uzvendra Chahal was the pick of the bowlers for Bangalore with two wickets but even he failed to slow the Capitals down.
In reply to the total, the Royal Challengers Bangalore struggled, and no one could get going. They had both Parthiv Patel and Marcus Stoinis go over 30, and Stoinis remained not out, but no one could get that big score they needed to push on and challenge the total they were set. At the end of their 20 overs, they finished 16 runs short of winning the game, and it was Shikhar Dhawan with his 50 from 37 balls that took home the man of the match award in this one. Defending their home ground will be key for Delhi going forward, they need more wins like this one.
DC vs RCB Match
While the Delhi Capitals and Royal Challengers Bangalore are both teams who are capable on their day, they know that if they want to mount a challenge for their first IPL title seriously, they have to be beating teams like this. If the Capitals are serious, then the DC vs RCB match in 2020 is one they have to win as they will have tougher opponents out there and the Challengers can say the same.
The Capitals won both meetings last season and will be looking to build on that this coming season. Although they had some tough times when named the Delhi Daredevils, this franchise is treating things as a new start, and another couple of wins over the team from Bangalore would do them no harm at all.
DC vs RCB Live
Neither of these two teams has had success in the IPL at all, but both still have loyal fanbases who are beginning to crave success. Both would love to make 2020 the year that they finally lifted an IPL title, and because of that, the DCvs RCB live game is sure to be one that people want to watch.
We all know what the big teams will bring to the table this coming season, but what about the dark horses, which both of these two could be described as. Can they do enough to improve their team and challenge in 2020? These could turn out to be important games towards the end of the season, so don’t be surprised to see plenty of interest in them.

DC vs RCB Head to Head
The DC vs RCB head to head stats below include all games played between Delhi and Bangalore, so these include games before the name change for the Capitals took place. Since the name change, things have been perfect for the Capitals, but before then, the stats below paint a different story.
Games played: 24
Delhi Capitals wins: 8
Royal Challengers Bangalore wins: 15
No result: 1
As you can see above, the Royal Challengers Bangalore hold the advantage and have won nearly double the games that the Delhi team has won over the years. Since the name change to the Capitals though, the Delhi team has won both games, so they have something to be happy about and will be looking to keep that run going in 2020.
However, it is also worth pointing out the dominance that Bangalore showed before that name change. They won five in a row against Delhi prior to the name change, and a total of 13 out of 14 games before that change took place in 2019. Although last season was good for the Capitals, recent form favours Bangalore in this head to head clash. Can Delhi show that they are starting fresh and back up what they did last season, or will we go back to business as usual for the Royal Challengers Bangalore?
