Match Prediction

Despite a win over Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in their last outing, I have to say Rajasthan aren't having good season so far. Delhi on the other hand have performed well and are currently at 2nd position in the points table.

I am backing Delhi Capitals to come out victorious looking at the current form, recent performances and momemtum going into this game. Having said that, Delhi won't underestimate Rajasthan. I would probably give it 70-30 in favor of Delhi as far as the winner prediction is concerned.

Player to Watch Out : Jos Buttler

Rajasthan Royals started this season winning their first 2 matches. But then lost the momentum with 4 back to back defeats. RR came back strong as they defeated Hyderabad by 5 wickets in their last match though. Guys like Riyan Parag and Rahul Tewatia were brilliant against Hyderabad with the bat.

The return of Ben Stokes is also a huge boost for the side. Stokes couldnot contribute much in their last win against SRH but is expected to be back with runs and wickets for his team. Jos Buttler too looked in good touch against Mumbai before the encounter against Hyderabad with his 54 ball 70.

Delhi on the other hand have played good cricket so far. DC had only one loss before their last match against Mumbai. Prithvi Shaw has done well with the bat and Shikhar Dhawan too is chipping with runs in between. Skipper Shreyas Iyer has been quite consistent for the side. Delhi side however would want a longer and more impactful innings from left handed wicketkeeper batsman Rishabh Pant. Marcus Stoinis has won matches for Delhi a few times.

Delhi bowling attack is led by Kagiso Rabada who already has 17 wickets to his name so far this season. The likes of Ravichandran Ashwin and Anrich Nortje have played good supporting role too.
