Rajasthan Royals were the champions of the inaugural Indian Premier League and it was in that season only, that they faced the Delhi Capitals (then the Delhi Daredevils) for the first time. Rajasthan Royals emerged victorious on the last ball of the match because of the heroics of the legendary all-rounder Shane Watson. This match is still considered to be one of the closest matches of the 2008 Indian Premier League.

Both the teams share a neck to neck record when it comes to facing each other in the IPL. Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Capitals have faced each other a total of 26 times and both the teams have won 13 matches each. This shows the level of equal rivalry that the teams have.

Both the teams will be looking to gain some momentum in the initial stages of the tournament. While Rajasthan has looked like a better side on the field, Delhi Capitals have missed the services of their original captain Rishab Pant. It is going to be an interesting match as the players would be desperate for a win.
Probable Best Batter of the Match
Looking at the amazing form and hitting ability, Rajasthan Royals’ Captain Sanju Samson can be the best batter in their match against the Delhi Capitals. Sanju has scored 97 runs in the first two games and has been the backbone of his team’s batting line-up.
Probable Best Bowler of the Match
The middle order of the Delhi Capitals has been underperforming this season and that is why the magical spin bowling of ace spinner Yuzvendra Chahal may turn out to be the best bowler of the match.
Rajasthan Royals will be taking on the Delhi Capitals in the 11th Match of TATA Indian Premier League 2023 from the Barsapara Cricket Stadium, Guwahati on 8th April 2023.
