Hello and Welcome to our preview for Delhi Capitals vs Rajasthan Royals match. We are covering DC vs RR Dream11 Team Prediction, Preview and Probable Playing XI for the T20 match. The match is to be played at Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in Delhi.
Delhi Capitals have been excellent in IPL’19 and are third on the points table with eight wins and five losses. However, They lost their last match against Chennai Super Kings by a margin of 80 runs. Bowling first, J Suchith bowled well in his debut match for DC taking two crucial scalps to restrict Chennai at 179. Chasing the target, Shreyas Iyer was the sole positive for Delhi scoring 44 runs but collapsed on 99 runs. Delhi will be determined to bounce back after heavy defeat and come all guns blazing at Kotla to find a spot in top two teams.
Rajasthan Royals are fifth on the points table with five wins and seven losses. They have won three of their last five completed matches and are looking in good form in the business end of the season. Their last match against RCB was washed out due to rain. However, In the few overs of play, Shreyas Gopal took a brilliant hat-trick and was supported by Oshane Thomas to restrict RCB at 62 in 5 overs. Sanju Samson and Livingstone were at their attacking best in the chase but unluckily rain washed out the remaining match. Royals will be determined to win their last league match and hope other results go in their way to qualify for playoffs.
A good match can be expected between both teams.
