Delhi Capitals (DC), from being one of the strongest contenders to make the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 playoffs, now find themselves in a must-win scenario. The Shreyas Iyer-led unit are next scheduled to lock horns with the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on Monday, November 2 at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.

If DC win the game, they will make their way to the playoffs. If they don’t, they will have to depend on other results to go in their favour. For the time being, the Capitals are on a four-match losing streak and will be going into the game on the back of a nine-wicket defeat to the Mumbai Indians (MI) in Dubai.

Pitch and Conditions

The pitch in Abu Dhabi has been a belter for batting, especially since the last few matches. Dew has played a big factor in the second half of the game. It’s better to be aware of the target and then chase it in the appropriate manner.

The playing conditions in Abu Dhabi will be warm with the temperature around the 29 degrees Celsius mark. The humidity is expected to be in the high-40s.

Playing Combinations for DC vs RCB

Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer (C), Rishabh Pant (wk), Marcus Stoinis, Shimron Hetmyer, Harshal Patel/Axar Patel, Ravi Ashwin, Praveen Dubey, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje

Probable Top Performers for DC vs RCB

Shikhar Dhawan– Delhi Capitals

Shikhar Dhawan is currently the leading run-scorer for the Capitals in the T20 tournament. Having scored a couple of centuries on the trot, he has looked a class apart from his teammates. However, he failed in the last three matches and it could dampen his spirits a wee bit. But bearing in mind the class he possesses the left-hander is expected to come into his very own in the Capitals’ next game.

AB de Villiers– Royal Challengers Bangalore

AB de Villiers can pummel any bowling attack on his given day and he is an absolute delight to watch when in his full rhythm. But this time around, while has tasted a fair bit of success, he has thrown away a few good starts. Even in the last game, he looked good for his 24 before getting out to Shahbaz Nadeem. The Pretoria-born would be looking to weave his magic and get a big score.
