Rejuvenated Rajasthan Royals managed to trump Mumbai Indians under Steve Smith's captaincy and now the Royals would aim their second consecutive win when they host the Delhi Capitals for the upcoming header at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur.
With the playoffs battle heated up, RR stands a chance to win a few games and try to earn a spot into the playoffs. Their next match comes against the in-form Delhi boys who would be entering the match after registering a comprehensive five-wicket win over the Kings XI Punjab. Delhi Capitals are placed on the third position with six wins in ten games and they would aim to continue their winning momentum to make an entry in the playoffs.
Will Delhi continue to ride high on the momentum ride?
Although Delhi Capitals have struggled hard this season for victory at their home ground, their away record is commendable. With four wins in five away games, Delhi land as a potential threat for the team.
Butler's absence might add to the woes of the Rajasthan Royals
Rajasthan Royals registered a win under Steve Smith and they would aim to repeat their last performance when they take on the Delhi Capitals. However, Jos Buttler's departure from the team who has flown back to England for the birth of his child has left a pothole in the batting line-up of the Rajasthan Royals.
