Pitch Report: As seen in the previous two games this season, there was some help for the pace bowlers and spinners at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. The pitch has surely been challenging for the batsmen and they will have to bat really well to put up a big total while batting first. However, bowling first will be a safe decision after winning the toss on this surface. The average first innings total will remain around 160-170 mark.
Toss Update: Rajasthan Royals won the toss and opted to bowl first.
The conditions will be suitable for batting even though this is an afternoon match and therefore, pack your fantasy cricket teams with as many as batsmen from either of the sides. It will be a calculative deal to pick more of Delhi Capitals players to increase the chances of winning big contests. The likes of Shikhar Dhawan, Sanju Samson, Shreyas Iyer and Kagiso Rabada will remain the must pick players for this match.
WICKET-KEEPERS: Sanju Samson, Rishabh Pant
BATSMEN: Shikhar Dhawan, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shreyas Iyer, Prithvi Shaw
ALL-ROUNDERS: Liam Livingstone
BOWLERS: Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Kartik Tyagi, Tabraiz Shamsi
The Delhi Capitals will start as the overwhelming favourites to win this match and reclaim the top spot on the points table in this Indian Premier League 2021 season. Both the DC batters and bowlers are in a brilliant form and they will be excited to keep up the good performance. On the other hand, Rajasthan Royals are also high on confidence after that amazing win against Punjab Kings. It will be an exciting contest between two really good sides.
The Delhi Capitals would want that both their batsmen and bowlers continue to deliver with collective performances as they have done so far in the Indian Premier League 2021 season. The likes of Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Shreyas Iyer and skipper Rishabh Pant will be their important clogs in the batting department in this game as well. On the other hand, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Axar Patel and Avesh Khan will be their crucial bowlers.
For the Delhi Capitals, senior opener Shikhar Dhawan has been in a terrific form with the bat in the last two seasons of the tournament. After scoring more than 600 runs in IPL 2020 that was held in the UAE, the left-handed batsman has already smashed more than 400 runs this edition. He scored an impressive 42-run innings in the last win for the Delhi Capitals.
Delhi Capitals’ pace spearhead Kagiso Rabada delivered a superb performance in the last game against Sunrisers Hyderabad. The South African speedster picked up the vital wickets of Wriddhiman Saha, Manish Pandey and Abdul Samad. Also, Rabada was absolutely sensational when the Indian Premier League was last held in the UAE conditions where he ended up picking a total of 30 wickets at an average of 18.26.

For the Rajasthan Royals, both their batsmen and bowlers have lacked consistency in the Indian Premier League 2021 season so far and the same thing reflected in the opening game against Punjab Kings. The likes of Evin Lewis, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson and Liam Livingstone will be their mainstays in the batting department. On the other hand, Chris Morris alongside Kartik Tyagi and Chetan Sakariya will be crucial with the ball.
Rajasthan Royals captain Sanju Samson will have to deliver with a big innings in this crucial match for his side in this competition. He will look to gain some confidence from the innings where he smashed a remarkable hundred in the first match for his side in IPL 2021 against the same opposition. The right-hander has scored more than 2500 runs and is quite an experienced performer over the years in the IPL. He has scored a total of 13 fifties and 3 centuries alongwith an impressive strike-rate of 134.83.
For the Rajasthan Royals, young fast bowler Kartik Tyagi held his nerves and bowled an incredible last over against Punjab Kings where he went on to successfully defend just 4 runs. Tyagi ended up with picking two impressive wickets and also ended up giving away just 29 runs in his quota of four overs. He will have to play an important role in this match as well.
