Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will play their sixth match of IPL 2022 against the Delhi Capitals (DC) tomorrow at the Wankhede Stadium. RCB suffered a 23-run defeat against the Chennai Super Kings in their last match. DC, on the other hand, are coming off a big 44-run win against the Kolkata Knight Riders.
The pitch in Mumbai has assisted the batters and the bowlers equally in IPL 2022 so far. However, considering that this is an evening fixture, the captain winning the toss may look to bowl first because of the dew factor.
