After a convincing win over KXIP at home, Delhi Capitals are in Jaipur for their next assignment. It’s time Rajasthan Royals vs Delhi Capitals in Vivo IPL 2019. Both the teams will face each other at Sawai Man Singh Stadium for the second time in this season.
Delhi Capitals are coming after securing 5 wickets win over Kings XI Punjab in a tricky run chase of 164 runs powered by skipper Shreyas Iyer (58* off 49) and Shikhar Dhawan (56 off 41) at Feroz Shah Kotla Ground. Placed third in the ladder, Capitals have managed six wins in ten encounters so far and would be looking to get going. However, it won’t be easy for Capitals to beat Royals at their own fortress -Sawai Man Singh Stadium.
In head to encounters, the hosts have a clear upper hand as eleven encounters out of eighteen have been won by the Royals. And, also the 5 wickets win over Mumbai Indians with a new skipper would have certainly boosted the required momentum to Rajasthan Royals.
