RCB will be feeling very confident coming into the match as they had a comfortable 8 wickets win over the Rajasthan Royals. The team looks to be well settled and for the first time in the history of the tournament the bowling of RCB has been top notch, credits to the young guns- Washington Sundar and Adam Zampa who have been applying pressure to the opposition batsman on a consistent basis.

Delhi Capitals are now the proud owners of the record for highest total in this season of IPL, kudos to the brilliance of Prithvi Shaw and DC captain Shreyas Iyer for their amazing knocks of 66(41) and 88(38) respectively. KKR did look threatening when Eoin Morgan and Rahul Tripathi set the fireworks. But fell short by 18 runs eventually handing DC their third win of the season, which earned them the top spot again.

Both teams will be hoping to make the best of the match as the winner of the match will accumulate the top position on the table. Can RCB continue their amazing run? Or will DC cement their place at the top?
