Royal Challengers Bangalore are one of the few teams yet to win the Indian Premier League trophy. They have reached the finals three times in their journey but were able to make a bid for the title. The fact that they could not pull the trigger in the clutch moments made things a lot tougher for them in the final encounters.
However, one can’t write them off since they have been performing really well in the last three seasons. RCB have qualified for the playoffs in the last three editions, proving they are one of the most consistent teams. However, they failed to make a telling impact beyond the playoffs. In the last edition, they went a step ahead by knocking Lucknow Super Giants out of the competition in the Eliminator.
On the other hand, Delhi Capitals have been consistent underachievers in the IPL, although they have well and truly improved altogether as a team in the last few seasons. They have often let their performances do the talking with the help of young talents and experienced players in the mix. Delhi Capitals made it to the IPL finals in the 2020 edition.
Nonetheless, they surrendered at the hands of Mumbai Indians. Overall, they have qualified for the playoffs five times in their history. In IPL 2022 season, Delhi Capitals narrowly missed out on making it to the playoffs as they finished just outside the top four spot. Delhi Capitals finished fifth on the table with seven wins and seven defeats.
