Delhi, May 04, Saturday at 04:00 PM IST

The first fixture of Saturday’s doubleheader in the Vivo IPL 2019 will be played at Feroz Shah Kotla Ground in Delhi between the hosts, Delhi Capitals, and fifth-placed Rajasthan Royals in the evening. While the hosts have nothing much to fret over, Rajasthan Royals will be looking for a net run-rate boosting win in their final group encounter and leave the rest on their fate.

The no result between RR and RCB on Tuesday, ended RCB’s campaign while Rajasthan Royals with 11 points are left hanging in the middle of the table. Apart from winning the final clash against Delhi Capitals, Royals need a handful of luck to secure the fourth position.

On the opposite, Delhi Capitals, who faced 80 runs drubbing at hands of table-toppers Chennai Super Kings will be hoping to capitalize the home advantage and bounce back from the defeat.

The clash will begin at 04:00 PM IST in the evening.

Total – 19
