Team Form Guide:
DC(recent last): W W W W L
RR(recent last): W W L W L
Standings: DC 1, RR 5
Venue: Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi
Pitch Report: In both the matches of this year at this venue, it has been a good choice to bat second and win the match easily. This is due to the dew setting in as the game progresses, which makes it a bit hard for the bowlers to contain runs. The par score on this venue is 160, and the batters have to be at their best to post a strong score on the board.
Brief score of the last result at the venue: Kolkata Knight Riders 159/3 won by 7 wickets against Mumbai Indians 155/6 in Match 34 of Indian Premier League 2021.
The 5 players from RR and 6 from DC are chosen for the 36th match of IPL 2021. Both the teams have a fine batting line-up and consists of talented all-rounders as well. The captain pick for this match will be Shikhar Dhawan who has been the most consistent batsman in the IPL for last 2 years. While, vice-captain can be Evin Lewis who has been a superlative batter in the T20 format.
WICKET-KEEPERS: Rishabh Pant
BATSMEN: Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Evin Lewis, Yashasvi Jaiswal
ALL-ROUNDERS: Axar Patel, Liam Livingstone
BOWLERS: Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Mustafizur Rahman, Kartik Tyagi
The Delhi Capitals will certainly have an edge due to their performances in the 2021 season, and the presence of experienced and proven players in the T20 format. While, Rajasthan Royals are also coming into this match after a thrilling victory, and will look to compete well, but have a weaker middle-order, and needs to improve on this aspect in this fixture.
IPL RCB vs CSK, Match 35: Possible Playing 11 of Royal Challengers Bangalore
The Delhi Capitals have been the most consistent side for the last 2 seasons in the Indian Premier League. In their last league match against Sunrisers Hyderabad, the team bowled very well to contain the opposition batsmen to a score of 134, with Nortje, Rabada, and Axar performing well. Then, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant were impressive to chase down the total in 18 overs.
Dhawan is a leading run scorer of this season, and has to be the most dominant one until now. He scored well in the last game and took a comfortable lead at the orange cap’s race. He will be a blind top pick from the Delhi’s batting department without any doubt. In 9 IPL 2021 matches, Dhawan has accumulated 422 runs and will be the most important batsman of the team.
This bloke has been on fire this season and the last, when he came as a replacement. He bowls so well, and so fast is his each & every delivery that, it fizzles the batsman, who faces it. He has been picking up wickets in every game and has been a top bowler for the Delhi team this season. In his IPL career of 17 matches, he has scalped 24 wickets and would look to continue the same form.

The Rajasthan Royals team have 4 victories in 8 matches and their chance of going into the playoffs will rely on their performances in the next 3 matches. In their last league, they secured a thrilling victory by 2 runs and would be upbeat ahead of this fixture. The top picks from the Rajastan Royals team will be overseas players, Evin Lewis and Liam Livingstone.
Lewis is a elegant batsman, he might have not been that consistent, but is capable of anchoring the game for the Rajasthan’s team. He has a fine experience and looked decent in the last game, where he got out scoring good at the start and he hit some great shots. He will wish that he can play a big innings in this game in this one. In 183 T20 appearances, Evin Lewis has amassed 5298 runs at an average of 31.72.
Liam has been so good with his performance in the past couple of months, so he is definitely a top pick. He is a hard hitter and can take the RR team to the next round, if he bats to his full extent. He is a great pick to have from the batting of this team. In 150 T20 matches, Livingstone has smacked 3975 runs at an average of 30.57.
