RR vs DC Today match prediction: Sharjah is back and so is the problems for bowlers. The graveyard for bowlers has seen some high scoring encounters in the tournament so far and Rajasthan Royals in particular will be the most happiest team of the two as they have won all the 2 games in this competition so far that has happened in Sharjah. Delhi Capitals have won their only game that happened in Sharjah against Kolkata Knight Riders after having posted a whopping 228 runs after batting first.
Delhi Capitals are marching on in this competition so far as they have won 4 out of their 5 games and will be looking to continue their winning momentum against Rajasthan Royals who are low on confidence. Rajasthan Royals have lost all their games outside of Sharjah and they will be desperate to play this match as they have very good memories on this ground.
Both the teams will be looking to strengthen their bowling attack as hardly one or two batsmen is enough to do the damage in Sharjah as we have seen in the previous games at that stadium. In today IPL match prediction, let us go through the strength and weaknesses of both these teams
Rajasthan Royals (RR)
Jos Buttler has finally come on his own in this edition of IPL after a dashing 70 off 44 balls against Mumbai Indians. Sanju Samson would be licking his lips to comeback to Sharjah. The U19 sensation Kartik Tyagi looked raw but was showed lots of promise. Shreyas Gopal bowled really well and was amongst wickets in his previous game.
Delhi Capitals (DC)
The consistency of Prithvi Shaw is a good sign for them as he was a hit or miss player in the previous season. Though, Rishabh Pant is nowhere near his best, he is consistently contributing with his bat in the games. The bowling duo of Anrich Nortje and Kagiso Rabada have been breathing fire.
Rajasthan Royals (RR)
Their middle order was tested big time and Tom Curran came into bat at #6 shows the fragility of their middle order. They have become a top heavy time and no one in the lower middle order inspires confidence with the bat.
Delhi Capitals (DC)
As long as Marcus Stoinis is contributing with the bat, they will be happy with their lower middle order but there is no hiding the fact that they have a weak lower middle order. If not for good start from their top order, their lower middle order might take a beating big time.

Jos Buttler: He is fresh off from a brilliant knock and wont miss out in Sharjah which has the smallest boundaries of all the grounds.
Sanju Samson: His first 2 knocks in Sharjah lit the tournament and has been a serial failure since then in the 3 games he has batted so far. He will be excited to see the smaller boundaries of Sharjah.
