Updated - Apr 6, 2019 2:14 pm
The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) have had a forgettable campaign thus far in this edition’s Indian Premier League (IPL). The Virat Kohli-captained team lost their fifth straight game against the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) by five wickets to remain winless in the tournament. Needless to say that another defeat would almost pull the curtains down on their chances of progressing to the next round.
The Red Army is next scheduled to play the Delhi Capitals (DC) in Bangalore in the first of tomorrow’s doubleheader. The Capitals, on the contrary, have looked promising, but have stuttered at various stages of the matches. Despite playing well, they lost three matches and are at the bottom of the points table. Shreyas Iyer and Co would want to cash in on the low confidence of the Challengers’ team.
The 20th game of the IPL between RCB and DC will be hosted by M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore.
The match starts at 04:00 PM local time (10:30 AM GMT).
The game will be live on Star Sports in India. (Live streaming on Hotstar).
According to AccuWeather, the temperature is expected to start at 35 degrees, but the atmosphere will cool down with the progression of the game. The humidity percentages will be on the lower side with the same hovering between the 16-mark.
