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.
