Amid all this, the two teams will clash in Ahmedabad on Tuesday. Both sides have been in top form so far. With four wins out of five games, both DC and RCB have 8 points in their kitties. While DC huffed and puffed to a win in their last game, RCB got a 69-run thrashing at the hands of Chennai Super Kings in their previous match.

In head-to-head, DC have the advantage, having emerged victorious in the last four out of the five encounters between the two teams. The Motera wicket will be one to look out for.
During the India-England Test series, rank turners were laid out. But in the following five-match T20I series, the pitches offered considerable amount of pace and bounce.
