It’s matchday for Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Capitals in Pink City Jaipur. The 40th fixture of Vivo IPL 2019 will be played at Sawai Man Singh Stadium, Jaipur between the hosts Rajasthan Royals and third-placed Delhi Capitals. The clash will begin at 08:00 PM IST tonight.
Royals registered their third win of the season under new skipper – Steve Smith in the last match against Mumbai Indians by 5 wickets and would be looking to fancy their chances against Delhi Capitals.

They registered 5 wickets win over Kings XI Punjab in the last encounter at Feroz Shah Kotla and would be aiming for a couple of more wins in the remaining four encounters to finish off in top four positions.
