RR vs DC Dream11 Match Prediction FREE TEAMS Today IPL Match 9 October

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.

Pitch and Conditions

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.

RR vs DC Dream11 Team Prediction

Let’s take a look at the squad news and RR Vs DC Dream11 predictions for today’s encounter.

Rajasthan Royals Team News

  • Rajasthan Royals' team selections will be interesting today after the losses in last 3 matches.
  • Jos Buttler and Yashasvi Jaiswal are likely to continue as the openers while Steve Smith should look to anchor the innings rather than going gung-ho from the word go.
  • Sanju Samson will be back at his favourite venue and should make full use of that after moderate returns in the recent matches. Mahipal Lomror will keep his place after a good contribution against RCB last week.
  • Tom Curran and Rahul Tewatia were their all-rounders in the last match but if team management decides to change the combination, then Tom Curran may have to make way.
  • Jofra Archer, Kartik Tyagi and Shreyas Gopal are confirmed starters while Ankit Rajpoot proved very expansive in the last match. Varun Aaron may come under consideration for this encounter in our RR vs DC Dream11 prediction.

Delhi Capitals Team News

  • Delhi Capitals are in terrific form and they will go into this clash with same XI from the last win against RCB.
  • Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan will open the proceedings with both having scores against their names already. Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant will bat according to situation of the game.
  • Marcus Stoinis and Shimron Hetmyer have batted mostly as finishers in recent matches but it will be interesting to see how they will be used in case of a top order collapse.
  • Axar Patel and Ravichandran Ashwin are also handy with bat along with their excellent spin bowling credentials. Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje will be their enforcers while Harshal Patel will bowl in the middle overs.

Captain Picks

For Small Leagues

  • Shreyas Iyer will be in demand today against Rajasthan Royals. When he played last time here at Sharjah, he slammed an unbeaten 88 against KKR. Clearly, conditions here will suit his style of play and can be a handy option in any league.
  • Rishabh Pant is another good option from Delhi Capitals today. Game time for the batsmen will play a huge part to anyone’s fantasy potential at Sharjah and that’s one of the reasons why you should pack your team with top order batsmen. Rishabh Pant will bat in top 4 and will be eager to make an impact today.
  • Jos Buttler is back in form and should enjoy what Sharjah has to offer. He made 70 in the last match and was just coming into his own when he was dismissed. With the reputation and class he has, making him the captain will always be a logical move.

For Grand Leagues

  • Kagiso Rabada is risk worth taking even in these conditions. He is currently at top of the ladder with 12 wickets from 5 innings. He can be your differential pick given the inexperience in RR middle order and his ability to scalp wickets in cluster.

  • Sanju Samson had 3 single digit scores after he left Sharjah but once he is back here, he can be a genuine contender for captaincy in the grand leagues. He made 74 and 85 in two innings he played here in the opening week. If he goes through the opening spell, odds will be in his favor to make another big one today.
  • Steve Smith is another player who should be picked based on the venue. He had scored two half-centuries when RR played here for first couple of matches. If he calms himself down in the initial overs, there are no reasons why he can’t get a substantial score today.
