RR vs DC Dream11 Prediction: Delhi Capitals have been the team to beat so far this year with almost all the bases covered for them. They have won 4 out of 5 matches and looking all set to make their way towards the play-offs. Their next assignment is against struggling Rajasthan Royals, who return to Sharjah where they earned their all 4 points. We will preview RR vs DC Dream11 contest.
Rajasthan Royals have lost their last 3 matches after starting their campaign with a couple of wins at Sharjah. Clearly, they have failed to adapt to conditions outside Sharjah but that’s not an issue today. Bowling first in the last match against Mumbai Indians, all the bowlers gave away too many runs except Jofra Archer and Shreyas Gopal. The leg-spinner took a couple but Mumbai Indians posted 193 on the board. In reply, no one stayed long enough with Jos Buttler to make a match out of this one. Jos Buttler was in his elements with an innings of 70 runs from just 44 balls. In the end, Rajasthan Royals were bowled out for 136 and handed the match by 57 runs.
Delhi Capitals are on a roll at the moment and coming off from a convincing victory against Royal Challengers Bangalore in their last match. Prithvi Shaw played some of the breathtaking shots to give a flying start to them. He made 42 from just 23 deliveries while Shikhar Dhawan made 32 as both gave a strong beginning to their innings. Shreyas Iyer went cheaply but Rishabh Pant and Marcus Stoinis combined for an entertaining partnership. Latter was particularly aggressive with 26-ball-53 as DC piled on 196 runs in their 20 overs. In bowling, Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje proved too hot to handle for RCB as they were restricted to just 137 runs. Kagiso Rabada picked up 4 scalps while Anrich Nortje and Axar Patel had two each.
In head-to-head comparisons, Rajasthan Royals have maintained an edge over their rivals today. RR have won 11 matches while DC have managed to register 9 victories in 20 matches played between them. In last 5 matches however, DC have a lead of 3-2 over RR. They will be meeting for the first time at UAE.
We are back in Sharjah and in for another six-hitting competition. The surface here is absolutely flat and batsmen have enjoyed their time here so far in the competition than the other two venues. Short boundaries either ways will only help even mis-hits to go all the way. We are expecting another high-scoring thriller between these two teams today.
