IPL 2019, Match 46, DC vs RCB: Match preview and key stats
DC have won seven matches and lost four so far this season, and are at the third position on the IPL points table. On the other hand, RCB are at the bottom of the table, having won four matches and lost seven.
Ahead of their meeting tomorrow, let's take a look at the head-to-head stats between the two franchises and the probable playing XI's for the match.
The DC vs RCB rivalry has seen 23 matches being played so far. RCB have won 15 of those games, while DC have managed to win 7, and one match ended in no result. Overall, both teams have never managed to win the title even once.
This is the second encounter between these teams this season, with DC winning the first one by 4 wickets.
