DC vs BLR Dream11 Team Prediction | 55th Match | Dream11 IPL 2020

Delhi Capitals will take on Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 55th Match of Dream11 IPL 2020 at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi. We will provide DC vs BLR Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Dream11 Tips.

Delhi Capitals:

After performing brilliantly in the first half of the tournament, Delhi Capitals struggles very much in the second half. They have lost four consecutive matches and are currently at the 3rd position on the points table with seven wins and six losses and 14 points.

After scoring two back to back hundreds, Dhawan got out for a duck in two matches in a row. Except for a couple of innings, Prithvi Shaw has also looked completely out of form this season. The strongest opening pair of this season has now become the weakest among all other teams. 

Skipper Shreyas who played some match-winning knocks has struggled to score runs in the past couple of matches, and the wicket-keeper batsman Rishab Pant is having a very bad season as he is not able to hit big shots and is also batting very slowly.

Marcus Stoinis and Axar Patel, who won a couple of games for DC, have been looking slightly out of form. Ravichandran Ashwin has been picking up wickets, but at the same time, he has been leaking a lot of runs.

Kagiso Rabada, the best bowler and the leading wicket-taker so far in this season, has gone wicketless for two consecutive matches. The other pacer Anrich Nortje has been bowling decently but has failed to pick up wickets at the important time.

Delhi Capitals need to win this match definitely to qualify for playoffs. If they lose this match, they also have a qualifying chance, but they need to depend on other teams’ match results.

  • Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw will open the innings for DC.
  • Skipper Shreyas Iyer, Rishab Pant, and S Hetmyer will form the team’s middle order.
  • All-rounders Marcus Stoinis and Axar Patel will be crucial in the lower middle order.
  • Axar Patel and R Ashwin will be the spin attack of the team.
  • The team’s core pace attack will consist of Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, and Harshal Patel.

Royal Challengers Bangalore:

RCB is also having a tough time in the past few matches as they have lost three consecutive games and are currently at the 2nd position on the points table with seven wins and six losses and a total of 14 points.

The Royal Challengers batting line up, which appeared to be one of the strongest earlier in the season, hasn’t been up to the mark from the past few matches. Josh Philippe, who replaced Aaron Finch as the opener, has done a decent job in the last two games.

Devdutt Padikkal has been batting well this season, but he has not given the kind of start that was expected from him. Virat Kohli has scored a good amount of runs, but he has played slowly and has not hit many boundaries this season.

ABD, known for his shot hitting abilities, has also played at a less strike rate than usual in the recent matches. The main concern for RCB would be that there are no proper batsmen in the lower middle-order, and there is no one to finish the innings for them.

Washington Sundar and Chris Morris have tried to play quick innings, but they haven’t had much success in doing so, and Gurkeerat Singh has not proven his worth even after so many chances.

The bowling department has looked much better when compared to batting this season. Yuzvendra Chahal has been the most consistent wicket-taker in the team, and he has been well accompanied by Chris Morris, who has picked up almost a wicket in every match he played.

Navdeep Saini has bowled well this season at a good pace but has been very unlucky not to pick up many wickets. Mohammad Siraj and Udana have also done a decent job according to the roles assigned to them.

Even if RCB loses this match, they still have a chance to qualify for playoffs, but if they win this match, they will end up in the points table’s Top 2 positions.

  • Josh Philippe and Devdutt Padikkal will open for RCB.
  • The middle-order looks good with Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, and Gurkeerat Singh Mann/Shivam Dube.
  • All-rounders Washington Sundar, Chris Morris, and Isuru Udana will be crucial in the lower middle order.
  • Navdeep Saini, Isuru Udana, Chris Morris, Yuzvendra Chahal, and Mohammad Siraj will form the team’s core bowling attack.
