RR vs DC Dream11 Team: The Match 23 of the Dream 11 Indian Premier League 2020 will witness Rajasthan Royals lock horns against Delhi Capitals. The Rajasthan team is coming into this game after 3 consecutive losses and is certainly low on confidence following the underperformance of Samson and Smith. The Buttler’s form is surely encouraging but the team needs to retrospect the batting failures in the recent games and come back strongly to register a win. The bowling department has been average, with them conceding a lot of runs on the board in the death overs. Jofra Archer has been clinical but needs to be consistent to help the team in the upcoming matches.
On the other side, one of the strongest team in the tournament, Delhi Capitals have won 4 of their last 5 matches and seems that they will be outperforming the Rajasthan Royals. Iyer and Shaw have been phenomenal and have set a stable platform for the team in the first 10 overs of the team, with Pant and Stoinis giving a good finishing touch in the death overs. The South African speedsters, Rabada and Nortje have undoubtedly been the driving force of the team and churning out wickets in a crucial stage. Having Ashwin and Axar Patel in the playing XI, they also have the ability to contain the opposition team in the middle overs. It will be interesting to see which team comes over the top in the RR vs DC Dream 11 prediction.
23rd Match- Indian Premier League
Rajasthan Royals vs Delhi Capitals

Pitch Report- Though the ground is a batting-friendly pitch, the teams that win the toss in T20 matches here prefer bowling first. This is considering the dew factor. As most of the T20 matches are evening-night matches, the dew falling and wide cracks on the pitch makes it difficult for the bowlers to control the ball in the second innings. The average first innings score here in this IPL has been around 200.
Weather Report- There are no chances of rain at Sharjah. It will be a full game as usual.
RR may or may not have Ben Stokes in the 11. Rajasthan has been lucky here and won't go for any major change. DC has suffered a big blow after Mishra got ruled out, but they had a good replacement for him in the last game with Axar winning the man of the match.
RR can surely win this match, if they perform the same way, they have done it in the last couple of games here. With Buttler and Smith at the top, they have to be excellent with their batting. They can start with some explosive batting at the top, to get huge runs on the board in the powerplay. They have to take the burden of scoring runs at the top but will have a slight relief of having someone like Samson, who has scored brilliantly here. DC has a balanced team and will be the favourites to win this game if they do as good as they have done it until now in the tournament. Here is the probable playing XI for RR vs DC Dream 11 prediction

S Iyer- The captain of the DC team has been one of the most consistent players for his every respective side he represents in any tournament. Along with an impressive leadership, he has scored 181 runs in 5 matches and is looking in great touch. In the last encounter at Sharjah, he scored 88 off 38 balls.
J Buttler- A player who has been one of the most important players for the England national team, is also a crucial player for the Rajasthan team in the top-order. In the last match, he scored 70 off 44 balls and this performance would surely keep him upbeat and can be your captain choice in the RR vs DC today match prediction.
P Shaw- A talented youngster, who has been quite phenomenal for the DC team this year, is a captain pick for your Dream 11 fantasy team. In 5 matches, he has scored 179 runs and has stabilized the top-order and middle order of the team and helping to post a good score on the board.
R Pant- One of the players who has been criticized for his rash batting for the national team, has come good for the DC team in this year. In 5 matches, he has scored 171 runs and on a ground like Sharjah, he would surely look to maintain the same form to continue the team’s winning momentum in the upcoming games.
S Smith- An exquisite Australian player who is the leader of the Royals team, is a very important player of the team and has scored 133 runs in 5 matches. Although he could not score in the last match, still remains as one of the best vice-captains pick for RR vs DC Dream 11 team due to the experience and ability.
S Samson- In the first two matches of the ongoing season, he was quite phenomenal in the Sharjah ground. Although he is not in a good form, still he must be confident about the prospect of him being an important player once again for the Rajasthan team to register a win in an important fixture in the Dream 11 IPL.
