RR vs DC Dream11 Prediction & Fan2Play Possible 11 Pitch Report: IPL 2023 Match 11 | RR vs DC Dream11 Prediction Today | Guwahati Pitch Report

Rajasthan Royals (RR) will battle against Delhi Capitals (DC) in the important, 11th match of IPL 2023. Both teams lost their last games against Punjab Kings (PBKS) and Gujarat Titans (GT), respectively.

After winning the first game convincingly, RR lost by five runs in a high-scoring encounter despite a valiant effort from Shimron Hetmyer and Dhruv Jurel.

Meanwhile, DC are having a tough time in the competition. They have lost both games this season so far. DC would want a better performance from their top order in the upcoming matches. They are a quality side, so expect them to rectify their mistakes in a vital opportunity to pick up their first win.

Match Details

  • Location: Barsapara Cricket Stadium, Guwahati.

Key Players to Watch/Key Stats

Rajasthan Royals:

  • Jos Buttler is the best T20 batter in world cricket at the moment. He has accumulated 304 runs at an average of 33.77 and a strike rate of 171.75 against Delhi Capitals in the IPL. The English captain has also made a fifty and a century.
  • Buttler has scored 45 off 29 off Khaleel Ahmed with one dismissal.
  • Yashasvi Jaiswal has 323 runs at a 26.91 average and 135.14 in the IPL since 2022. He has provided good support to Jos Buttler at the top. Expect him to continue his excellent run.
  • Sanju Samson in IPL 2023: 55(32) vs SRH & 42(25) vs PBKS. He has looked in decent touch with the willow in the two games. Overall, Sanju has hit 286 runs at a 138.83 strike rate against Delhi Capitals.
  • Trent Boult has snared 11 wickets at an average of 20.18 and a strike rate of 16.36 against Delhi Capitals in the IPL. He will look to build on this impressive record. However, Boult didn’t have a great game in Guwahati last time.
  • Yuzvendra Chahal is a consistent wicket-taker in the league. He has taken the most number of wickets (171) in the IPL. Chahal also has 17 scalps at a strike rate of 21.23 against Delhi Capitals.

Delhi Capitals:

  • David Warner vs Rajasthan Royals in the IPL: 469 runs, 36.07 avg., SR 128.14. He has also amassed four half-centuries. However, Warner should be a bit cautious against Trent Boult early in the innings.
  • Prithvi Shaw looked in poor touch in the first two games. His record against Rajasthan Royals is not great either. He has a mediocre average of 20.62 and a strike rate of 129.92 against RR.
  • Yuzvendra Chahal has dismissed Prithvi Shaw twice in 21 balls. Shaw has struck at 195.23 against the leg-spinner. Also, 63% of Shaw’s dismissals against pace since IPL 2021 have been against short balls.
  • Mitchell Marsh hasn’t exactly fired with the bat so far. His scores in the two games read 0(1) vs LSG & 4(4) vs GT. However, Marsh is a quality batter, particularly against the speedsters. DC would want him to counter the highly-skilled GT pacers today.
  • Axar Patel has been DC’s best batter of the season so far. He has looked in good nick with the willow. While Axar didn’t bowl in the last game, expect him to make an impact with the ball too.
  • Kuldeep Yadav has snared seven wickets at a strike rate of 21.42 and an economy rate of 6.96 against Rajasthan Royals in the IPL. However, Jos Buttler has a strike rate of 163.63 (one dismissal), and Sanju Samson strikes at 125.80 (no outs) against him in the IPL.

Other Stats and Facts

  • Head-to-head: Matches 26, RR 13, DC 13.
  • David Warner vs Trent Boult in the T20s: 64 runs, 98.46 batting SR and 2 dismissals. Boult has troubled Warner earlier and will look to dismiss him again today.
  • Sanju Samson vs Anrich Nortje in the IPL: 13 runs, 76.47 batting SR and 1 dismissal in 17 balls.
  • Prithvi Shaw vs Trent Boult in the IPL: 28 runs, 112 batting SR and 3 dismissals (25 balls). Shaw is already struggling against pace, and Boult might make his life difficult further at Guwahati.
  • David Warner requires 26 more runs to complete 6000 IPL runs.
