Pre-match Analysis

Match prediction and betting tips for Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Delhi Capitals 20th Match, Indian Premier League 2023.

Both Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Capitals have been on a losing streak and would like to regain some confidence going ahead in the tournament. This match may be the perfect opportunity for them to get back to winning ways.   

Probable Best Batter of the Match

David Warner has once again shown why he is regarded to be one of the best batters in the history of TATA IPL. He has batted amazingly and is currently the holder of the Orange Cap. He would look to get his strike rate better at the batting-friendly wicket of Chinnaswamy and may once again be the best batter of the match. 

Probable Best Bowler of the Match

Mohammed Siraj has bowled really well in this edition of TATA IPL. He not only picked 3 wickets in Royal Challengers Bangalore’s last match against the Lucknow Super Giants but also conceded only 22 runs in his 4 overs in a high-scoring encounter. This is the reason why he may be the best bowler of the match.  

Match Details

Royal Challengers Bangalore will be up against the Delhi Capitals in the 20th Match of TATA Indian Premier League 2023 from the Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore on 15th April 2023. For the viewers, the match will be telecast live at 7:30 pm on Star Sports network on television and Jio Cinema on your mobile handset. 

Pitch Report

Chinnaswamy Stadium is considered to be hell for bowlers. The flat pitch, fast outfield, and short boundaries make it a perfect stadium for an absolute run fest. This time too, it will be no different. The team winning the toss would like to chase as the dew might as well settle in making it all the more difficult for the bowlers.

Today’s Match Prediction: Final Thoughts

It is expected to be a cracker of a contest as two strong teams will be against each other and both teams would like to make amends and get a win after a series of losses. The form and the merits suggest that Royal Challengers Bangalore might emerge victorious and will definitely fancy their home advantage.
