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
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.
Bet365: RR- 2.10, DC- 1.72
Betway: RR- 2.20, DC- 1.66
Delhi Capitals to win this match
Delhi is well balanced and has very less or no visible weakness in their playing eleven. For that reason, DC is expected to outcast Rajasthan Royals, as per today match prediction.
Apart from Jofra Archer, RR doesn’t have any good options in their bowling armoury to restrict a strong DC batting line-up.
Head to Head (overall)
Head to Head (UAE)
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
