Match Preview – Delhi Capitals (DC) vs Rajasthan Royals (RR)
In Match 30 of the Indian Premier League, Delhi Capitals will be up against Rajasthan Royals at the Dubai International Stadium. In their previous face-off in IPL 2020, Delhi emerged victoriously against a deteriorated Rajasthan outfit at Sharjah. However, this time around, the RR fans would hope for a much better fight from the ‘Men in Pink’ as they take on the second-ranked Delhi Capitals in the Points Table. The Shreyas Iyer-led Delhi Capitals lost their previous IPL match against Mumbai Indians conceding only their second game in the tournament so far.
However, they will drive confidence from their previous win against RR before they take the field for today’s IPL match. On the other hand, Rajasthan will be riding high on confidence after clinching a close win against SRH in their last IPL fixture. With three wins, RR stands seventh in the points table and would only hope to gain some momentum going forward in the tournament. Before we take a look at DC vs RR Match Prediction and who will win today’s IPL match, here’s a brief insight into what can be expected of today’s IPL fixture.
What to Expect – Pitch and Ground Conditions?
As the tournament enters its second half, the pitch conditions will begin to offer more assistance to the slow bowlers. As seen in the SRH vs CSK encounter in Dubai yesterday, the pitch in Dubai will have a lot on offer for the spinners, especially in the second innings. With large boundaries and the slow nature of the wicket, run-scoring is likely to get harder in the second innings. It won’t be a surprise if the team winning the toss opts to bat first in today’s IPL match.
