Rajasthan Royals got some much-needed confidence with their victory against Sunrisers Hyderabad in the last match and they would be eager to carry it forward when they take on Delhi Capitals in Dubai on Wednesday. The Royals were on a four-match losing streak prior to their win in the previous match. They looked all set to lose this game as well when they lost the wickets of Steven Smith, Jos Buttler, Ben Stokes, and Sanju Samson cheaply. But the efforts of Rahul Tewatia and Riyan Parag helped them to pull off a miraculous win.
The Capitals, on the other hand, have suffered a setback with Rishabh Pant ruled out due to injury. That has hampered the team balance a bit. On one hand, they had to drop Shimron Hetmyer to play Alex Carey as the wicket-keeper and on the other hand, Ajinkya Rahane is playing out of position in the middle-order as well. As a result, Delhi clearly lacked firepower in the middle-order. That is a big cause of concern for them and the Royals will be looking to take advantage of that.
Delhi Capitals will miss the services of Rishabh Pant as he will remain sidelined at least for the next week or so due to the injury he suffered in practice. Rajasthan Royals don’t have any injury concerns at the moment.
Probable Playing XI
Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Ajinkya Rahane, Shreyas Iyer, Marcus Stoinis, Alex Carey, Harshal Patel, Axar Patel, Kagiso Rabada, R Ashwin, Anrich Nortje
Jos Buttler, Ben Stokes, Steven Smith, Sanju Samson, Robin Uthappa, Riyan Parag, Rahul Tewatia, Jofra Archer, Shreyas Gopal, Kartik Tyagi, Jaydev Unadkat
- The likes of Kagiso Rabada and Jofra Archer have been in superb bowling form. That makes them absolute must-haves in this match.
- Rahul Tewatia has been scoring points with both bat and ball. He is a reliable all-round option.
- Ben Stokes’ fantasy potential has increased a lot since he will be opening the innings. Don’t hesitate to include him in your Team.
- Jos Buttler always remains a threat even though he hasn’t been in the best of forms.
- Prithvi Shaw and Marus Stoinis are other valuable assets from Delhi Capitals.
