Dubai (UAE) | Jagran Sports Desk: After narrowly winning their last game against Kolkata Knight Riders, Shreyas Iyer's Delhi Capitals will take on Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore on Monday at the 19th game of the IPL 2020. The match will begin at 7.30 pm at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

Delhi Capitals have played some good cricket in the tournament so far, winning three games in four matches. However, they will be cautious when they face Royal Challengers Bangalore on Monday. Both Iyer and Kohli had scored runs in the last match of their respective sides and would look to lead from the front and outwit each other in what promises to be a thrilling contest.

Pitch report:

The pitch at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium generally favours the spinners. Cricket experts suggest that batsmen might find it difficult to play in Dubai on Monday and the captain winning the toss will likely prefer to bat first as chasing might get difficult unless the dew factor gets involved in the game.

Weather forecast:

The weather experts have predicted that there is no chance of rain in Dubai on Monday and temperature will be as high as 36 degrees Celsius while humidity will remain around 54 per cent. Experts, though, suggest that the weather will improve as the game progresses.

Probable playing XI of both sides:

Royal Challengers Bangalore: Aaron Finch, Devdutt Padikkal, Virat Kohli (C), AB de Villiers (WK), Shivam Dube, Gurkeerat Singh, Washington Sundar, Isuru Udana, Navdeep Saini, Yuzvendra Chahal and Adam Zampa.
