DC vs RR Prediction: Toss, Pitch, Cricket Betting Tips for Delhi Capitals vs Rajasthan Royals IPL 2020 Match 30

Delhi Capitals vs Rajasthan Royals

Indian Premier League 2020, Match 30

Date & Time: 09 October, 2020 at 7:30 PM IST

Dubai International Cricket Stadium, UAE

DC vs RR Prediction

The second half of the IPL is up and running. In the much-awaited Wednesday encounter, the men in form Delhi Capitals will take on the Rajasthan Royals in what is expected to be a nail-biting encounter. Delhi just went off the radar in the last match against MI, whereas RR almost pulled off an unimaginable win against SRH courtesy of some fine finishing from Rahul Tewatia and young Riyan Parag. They would be counting on that form to upset the strong DC lineup.

Strength

Delhi Capitals:

  • DC has a strong batting line-up. Top-4 packed by top Indian batsmen along with Stoinis and Carrey makes them a strong force.
  • The Proteas duo of Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje has been impressive in this tournament so far.
  • The current batting form of their captain Shreyas Iyer is a huge boost to this Delhi side.
  • A well balanced and settled batting eleven.

Rajasthan Royals:

  • In Buttler, Smith, Stokes, and Samson, they have one of the most dynamic top four that a T20 team could ever wish for.
  • They were dominant in the 2 matches played in Sharjah.
  • Most of their young players who bat in the lower middle order can be very handy with the bat. Players like Rahul Tewatia and Riyan Parag provides much greater batting depth to RR.
  • In Jofra Archer, they have one of the best T20 death over specialist.

Weakness

Delhi Capitals:

  • Rishab Pant is injured, that has weakened their finishing a bit.
  • With Mishra and Ishant ruled out, the domestic bowling department has been weakened a bit.

Rajasthan Royals:

  • RR’s bowling is a huge worry. The domestic bowlers must complement Jofra Archer big time.
  • Both their premier batsmen, Sanju Samson and Steve Smith are struggling for form.
  • RR doesn’t have a good enough spin attack.

DC VS RR MATCH PREDICTION

RR is finally back on track, and they are now fielding a new strategy by placing Ben Stokes in the opening slot along with Jos Buttler. This is done primarily to make use of Stokes’s attacking powers in the powerplay and due to his poor numbers with the bat in the middle overs in T20 cricket in Asia. Even though it was a failed move, they are expected to go ahead with this plan. No other changes are expected in their playing eleven.

DC on the other hand will be playing Rahane and Carrey once again in their eleven as Pant is out for few days due to an injury. Other than that no changes are expected from them as well.

RR Playing 11: Jos Buttler, Ben Stokes, Steve Smith, Sanju Samson, Robin Uthappa, Rahul Tewatia, Riyan Parag, Shreyas Gopal, Jofra Archer, Kartik Tyagi, Jaydev Unadkat

DC Playing 11: Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Ajinkya Rahane, Shreyas Iyer, Alex Carrey, Marcus Stoinis, Axar Patel, Harshal Patel, Kagiso Rabada, Ravichandran Ashwin, Anrich Nortje
