DC vs RR today match prediction: MI have finally managed to stop DC's juggernaut in this season who were cruising till that point in time. They have been badly hit by Rishabh Pant's injury which forced them to change the winning combination and it played a major role in their loss. They are forced to play with this combination for another 3 games as Rishabh Pant is out for the week. The addition of Ajinkya Rahane and Alex Carey weakened their batting line up to a great deal.
RR have managed to pull off another heist and it has become a routine stuff for them as this is their 2nd such victory in the season and it was that man again in Rahul Tewatia who played a match winning knock. Their move to open with Ben Stokes turned out to be an inspiring move, though it didn’t work out in the last game, they should persist with it.
In today IPL match prediction, let us point out the strengths and weaknesses of both the teams.
Delhi Capitals (DC)
The form of Shreyas Iyer will hold them in good stead in the absence of two of their enforcers in middle overs with the bat in Rishabh Pant and Shimron Hetmyer. Marcus Stoinis has been batting like a dream in this competition so far. Their fast bowling duo of Anrich Nortje and Kagiso Rabada have been top notch.
Rajasthan Royals (RR)
The arrival of Ben Stokes has given a whole new dimension to their team. Though, he didn’t make any significant impact in the game, his presence in itself was a major boost. The form of Riyan Parag and Rahul Tewatia will allow their top order to play freely.
Delhi Capitals (DC)
They don’t have a power hitter in the middle order apart from Marcus Stoinis. They have 2 anchors in their top 3 which is a recipe for disaster by all means. They badly need Shikhar Dhawan to play at a higher strike rate that it takes the pressure off Marcus Stoinis. The hit or miss approach of Prithvi Shaw is continuing in this season as well.
Rajasthan Royals (RR)
The form of the core group of overseas batsmen has been a massive worry for them. Sanju Samson showed some temperament in the previous game but got out before teeing off. Their death bowling could bite them big time if Jofra Archer has an off day.

DC vs RR dream11 team for today’s match
There are some quality players taking part in the field for today’s game and in dream11 prediction, let us predict the important players for fantasy teams.
Prithvi Shaw: He was undone by Jofra Archer's violent ball in their previous meeting and will be hoping to redeem himself in this meeting. He will have to bear the responsibility of playing through the innings because of the absence of Rishabh Pant.
Rahul Tewatia: He has become the important member of the RR team and is been seen as the crisis man for them. He is also bowling all his 4 overs with the ball and playing the important role of finisher for RR
Kagiso Rabada: He is the purple cap holder by a large margin and has picked 17 wickets in 7 games in this season so far.
Jos Buttler: He is due for a big knock. Showed his class against MI with a cracking 70 but hasn’t been at his best since then. RR will be hoping for him to come good.
Other picks: Jofra Archer, Anrich Nortje, Shreyas Iyer and Ben Stokes can all be quality picks.
