Delhi Capitals to win this match
Head to Head (overall)
Considering the batting line-ups of both the teams, Sharjah is sure to witness one more cracking 200+ game. Both teams have required firepower in the batting department. With Ben Stokes still in quarantine RR is expected to be unchanged. Despite the consecutive losses in the previous matches, RR had a lot of positives to take away. These include the form of Mahipal Lomror and young Kartik Tyagi. They would be hoping to get timely support from Kartik Tyagi and the Indian spinners to help Jofra Archer in the bowling department.
DC on the other hand is on a roll. Having won 4 of the 5 matches played so far, they are placed comfortably in the points table. They are expected to be unchanged for this game.
RR Playing 11: Jos Buttler, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Steve Smith, Sanju Samson, Rahul Tewatia, Mahipal Lomror, Tom Curran, Shreyas Gopal, Jofra Archer, Kartik Tyagi, Ankit Rajpoot
DC Playing 11: Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Shimron Hetmyer, Marcus Stoinis, Axar Patel, Harshal Patel, Kagiso Rabada, Ravichandran Ashwin, Anrich Nortje

Sharjah is historically a high scoring ground. With both teams having enough firepower in their armoury, entertainment is guaranteed for sure. Any score below 200 should be easy to chase down. That being said batting first seems the ideal choice on this pitch, as most teams have tasted success by doing so in the past.
Players who are expected to perform well as per Dream11 Prediction.
RR- Sanju Samson
