It is Pant vs Kohli as Delhi Capitals (DC) get ready to take on Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in match no 22nd of the Dream11 Indian T20 League 2021. Both the teams are riding high on the table with both losing just one out of the total matches they have played so far.
Bangalore suffered their first loss at the hands of Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the last game. It was dubbing but knowing the mentality and his team have, they would think of it as a one-off-game.
