The Delhi Capitals have lost both their opening games and will be desperate to register a win here and avoid falling to the bottom of the table.David Warner seems to be in good form and has made scores of 56 and 37, but his opening partner, Prithvi Shaw, hasn’t been able to get going so far. The middle order too hasn’t fired yet. Sarfaraz Khan. Mitch Marsh would be going back to home for his marriage and might see Rovman powell as a replacement. Rossouw has also failed to impress coming back from a fantastic PSL earlier.Axar Patel has lived up to his all-round credentials and while not being the most effective with the ball, has struck some lusty blows with the bat. Kuldeep Yadav has struggled to pick up wickets too. However, Anrich Nortje did bowl an impressive spell in his debut game last time around and will play an important role here along with Khaleel Ahmed.
After making a winning start to their latest IPL campaign, the Rajasthan Royals faltered in their latest fixture as they were defeated by the Punjab Kings in a close encounter. Butler and Jaiswal compliment each other pretty well as an opening pair.The team has a strong middle order consisting of Sanju Samson, Devdutt Padikkal, Riyan Parag, and Shimron Hetmeyer, which should give them a good amount of confidence. Dhruv Jurel, who made his IPL debut as an impact player played an excellent cameo to get the team close to the finish line. Ashwin and Chahal are quality spinners and would surely peg back after previous encounter. Trent boult has a knack of picking wickets upfront and Holder has been impressive in death overs.
PITCH AND CONDITIONS
The pitch at the Barsapara Stadium is excellent to bat on thanks to the good and consistent bounce on offer. But they will need to be very disciplined. The team batting first will be looking at a score of close to 200 to give the bowlers some headroom.
RR VS DC TOSS PREDICTION
The team winning the toss will likely opt to bowl first here.
