Bengaluru: Royal Challengers and Delhi Daredevils are desperate for a win and both will be trying to outdo each other in the Indian Premier League here tomorrow. 

RCB and Daredevils find themselves at bottom of the points table with just a win each from four matches. 

Both RCB and Daredevils go into the crucial tie tomorrow after losing to Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders, respectively.

The Virat Kohli-led side started its campaign on a losing note against KKR, but bounced back in the next match against Kings XI Punjab at home, before losing the next two matches against Rajasthan Royals and Mumbai Indians.
