IPL 2023 Match 50 Prediction (DC vs RCB) : Can RCB storm into the Top Fours by smashing DC at their home ground? Delhi Capitals vs Royal Challengers Bangalore

Today’s second contest of IPL 2023 is Delhi Capitals vs Royal Challengers Bangalore (DC vs RCB). The host, DC, is currently the worst performer this season. Out of the 9 games played during the tournament they have lost 6 matches which places them at the bottom of the table with 6 points only. However, in their last match, the team registered a miraculous win against the defending champions – Gujarat Titans, so far the biggest upset this season.  Still, DC is in deep waters since they require many more such miracles with back to back wins in their remaining matches so as to reach Top Fours. 

Talking about the visitors, RCB, has the fire rekindled in them given their performance in recent matches. The team has won 3 out last 5 games. Currently, they are ranked 5th in IPL Standings with 10 points. Though, in their last match against Lucknow Super Giants, the middle order batting line up collapsed completely, RCB’s outstanding bowling attack made them defend a total of meagre 126 runs. The team will surely be looking for a victory  in the upcoming game as it will put them in the Top Fours.

DC vs RCB : Pitch Report

The ground of Arun Jaitley Stadium is favourable for batters as it has smaller boundaries along with a quick outfield which enables them to play big shots and put a high score on the board. For slow bowlers the pitch provides a great support as it is on a slower side. 

Any score above 185 should be a good defendable total on this pitch. 

The toss-winning captain should field first.
