Toss Results
DC wins toss and opts to field first

Virat Kohli: We have a couple of changes. Gurkeerat Mann misses out, Dube comes in to provide some fire power in the middle. Shahbaz Ahmed comes in for Saini who is not fully fit. It is good to be batting first but we would have bowled had we won the toss.

Shreyas Iyer: We will bowl first. Dew is going to play a massive role. Looking at the previous games the surface looks a belter. We have three changes – Rahane, Axar and Sams come in. It’s a complicated situation to be and it happens in the IPL.

Devdutt Padikkal has been the biggest discovery for RCB this season. In only his debut IPL season,  he has already formed the fulcrum of RCB’s top order. His impressive batting statistics so far, along with his acrobatics on the field, shows just how important he will be for us in the longer run.

4.30pm

Tonight’s contest between DC vs RCB will potentially serves as a virtual qualifier. And interestingly not 1 but 2 teams can seal a playoffs berth depending on the fate of tonight’s results.

While the winner of IPL 2020 DC vs RCB will definitely book a berth; the NRR (net run rate) will also come into factor. Since KKR finished their league campaign with a 60-run win over Rajasthan Royals to get into the top four with 14 points and a net run-rate of -0.214 and if either DC (-0.159) or RCB (-0.145) finish with a lesser NRR, KKR can find themselves qualified.
