DC vs RR Preview Dream11. Delhi Capitals vs Rajasthan Royals Preview Dream11 Prediction

Two days of league action to go. This weekend of two big double headers will finally decide who makes it to the playoffs and who doesn’t.

One of the teams in contention is Rajasthan Royals. They made a run to make it against the odds last season, and it would be something of a miracle this season given how poor they were going. They have lost yet another international player in Steve Smith, but they have had some success at the Feroz Shah Stadium and need to pull out all the stocks here. They simply must win, and then hope SRH loses to RCB and KKR to MI.

Delhi Capitals, on the other hand, have the luxury of playing their last two games knowing they have qualified for the playoffs. However, they are in a two-way battle with MI for a top-two spot. They were comprehensively beaten in Chennai last game, and have to bounce back here. That is a tough ask with Kagiso Rabada ruled out of IPL 2019, but with two wins in a row at home, DC need to believe they can do it again.

Key to a DC win

DC’s batsmen were all at sea against CSK’s spinners last game. Prithvi Shaw was a player many had eyes on before the tournament, but he has underwhelmed. So, Shikhar Dhawan again holds the key at the top, because you get the feeling that if he gets out early, the pressure really builds on the Capitals. With Shreyas Iyer in some good touch, and Rishabh Pant playing a blinder vs RR earlier in the season, DC need their top four to deliver a strong platform for the likes of Sherfane Rutherford to play with freedom.

Also, after a fine start vs CSK, DC let things slip badly. Their death bowling was all over the place at Chepauk, and if they are to entertain dreams of lifting the IPL 2019 trophy, they must perform better without Kagiso Rabada. Of course, losing a player who has taken 25 wickets is significant, but the onus will be on two players who have plenty of experience – Trent Boult and Chris Morris – to bowl well when called upon at all stages of the innings. Also, with the Feroz Shah Kotla often aiding spin, keep an eye out for the likes of Axar Patel, Amit Mishra and Jagadeesha Suchith to cause RR problems. Should DC play Sandeep Lamichhane over Chris Morris? Remains to be seen.

Key to a RR win

There is no Steve Smith now for RR. Ajinkya Rahane will retake the captaincy, of which he was struggling a little with earlier in the season. However, Rahane scored a superb century vs DC earlier in the season, and RR need another big innings from Rahane in a do-or-die game. Also, Liam Livingstone has shown good signs this season, and it’s time for Sanju Samson to play the significant innings his form has threatened he can do. With an inexperienced middle order, RR’s top three must deliver the goods to be able to remind DC of their faults at the death vs CSK.

Also, can Shreyas Gopal work his magic again? He has been superb in IPL 2019, sitting third in the wicket-takers list with 18. Gopal will be a danger man in conditions that can aid spin, so watch out for him to lead the attack. Also, RR’s seamers have been in good touch recently, so onus is on them, even in slower conditions, to have a good outing and build pressure on DC. Can RR get the better of DC’s top order and build on it?

Stats and Facts

Match Prediction

No Kagiso Rabada is a blow for DC. However, they look to have a little more depth than RR, who have lost quite a bit of talent in recent games.

RR to fight but DC to get the win.
