The Northerners face off in the 12th season of the Indian Premier League as Delhi Capitals host Rajasthan Royals in what will be the 14th game of the campaign for either side on Saturday.
Delhi Capitals are in the third spot in the IPL table and level on points with the second place side. The franchise has already qualified itself for the playoffs this season and they are looking to leave a marker for themselves. The team got showed up in the last game and were embarrassed beyond words, and this being the last game of the regular season, will be the ideal time to show up and play like a side who actually has got some fight left in them.
On the other hand, Rajasthan Royals are in the 5th spot and have nothing to lose, and are expected to play the same way as well. The team has been some of the best players at their disposal, and even though they are going to be missing their core bunch for this last game, the franchise is expected to showcase what they can truly do by giving it their all till there is nothing left.
Venue – Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi, India
Date & Time – 4th May | 4:00 PM IST
