Pre Match Analysis
Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Capitals are performing well this season. However, Rajasthan Royals is just one win away from making it to the playoffs. And on the other hand, Delhi Capitals need to win all their remaining matches to get into the playoffs and hence it will be a tough battle now.
Delhi Capitals have formed a good core and thus they have a good chance of making it big this year. At the top, David Warner has been performing well. However, the lack of availability of Prithvi Shaw has made things a bit difficult for them. In the middle order, Mitchell Marsh and Rishabh Pant have played some good innings for them and hence they will look to perform even better. Besides them, Rovamann Powell, Axar Patel and Shardul Thakur have also looked in good touch which has made things easy for them. Besides this, the bowlers have been doing well as Anrich Nortje, Kuldeep Yadav and Shardul Thakur are bowling good lines and lengths.
On the other hand, Rajasthan Royals have been a complete package this year. With the presence of an orange cap and purple cap holder in the team, they are looking all set to be a title-winning team this year. Jos Buttler and Devdutt Padikkal at the top have been performing well and Sanju Samson along with Yashasvi Jaiswal are doing even better. However, in this match, Shimron Hetmyer won’t be there and thus this will be a big disadvantage for the team. The bowlers have looked good as Yuzvendra Chahal, R Ashwin, Prasidh Krishna, Kuldeep Sen and Trent Boult are bowling perfect lines to take them home this season.
