DC in IPL 2024: Team preview

RR vs DC match preview

Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Delhi Capitals (DC) will lock horns in the 9th match of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024. The Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur will host the encounter.

The Capitals got off to a losing start after losing to Shikhar Dhawan’s Punjab Kings (PBKS). The Royals, on the other hand, beat KL Rahul’s Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) by 20 runs and will be high on confidence.

The Capitals and Royals have faced each other 27 times since their first meeting in 2008. The Royals are ahead on the head-to-head count with a 14-13 win-loss record in their favour. In Jaipur, RR have won 4 out of 6 matches against the Capitals.

The upcoming RR vs DC prediction is going to keep the fans at the edge of their sets since there is very little to separate them.

Rajasthan Royals

The Royals looked comprehensive in their previous game and gave the Super Giants very few chances to put pressure on them. Sanju Samson, their skipper, led from the front after he scored an unbeaten 82 off 52 balls with 3 fours and 6 sixes.

In the bowling department, Trent Boult and Nandre Burger picked up early wickets in the powerplay to put the Royals in a position of command. Avesh Khan could not pick up a wicket, but bowled brilliantly in the last over to take RR past the finish line.

The RR vs DC prediction will depend on how Samson’s Royals keep up with the momentum that they gained against the Capitals.

Rajasthan Royals Possible 11: Yashasvi Jaiswal, Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson (c & wk), Riyan Parag, Shimron Hetmyer, Dhruv Jurel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Sandeep Sharma, Avesh Khan, Trent Boult, Yuzvendra Chahal

Delhi Capitals

The Capitals had a decent chance of beating PBKS in their previous game, but somehow faltered at the finishing hurdle. DC are in for more trouble after Ishant Sharma, one of their frontline fast bowlers, twisted his ankle. He limped off the park and updates on fitness are awaited.

But DC have reasons to cheer for after South African speedster Anrich Nortje joined them on Monday. If Nortje plays the next game, the Capitals may let Tristan Stubbs go. Abhishek Porel, who played as an Impact Sub last time, may get a direct chance in the playing XI.

The outcome of the RR vs DC prediction will depend on how the Capitals manage to claw their way back after losing to the Kings.

Delhi Capitals Possible 11: David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, Shai Hope, Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Ricky Bhui, Abhishek Porel, Axar Patel, Sumit Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Khaleel Ahmed, Anrich Nortje

Pitch report and expected weather conditions

The pitch at the venue in Jaipur is expected to be a good one for batting. Teams need to score in the range of 180 and 190 to give themselves a fair chance of coming up trumps. Fast bowlers will play an important role and need to pick up wickets in the powerplay.

Playing conditions will be very hot and players need to stay hydrated throughout. Temperatures may go up to as high as 39 degrees Celsius. There will be 30 percent cloud cover, but there is no chance of rain for the time being.

RR vs DC Dream11 prediction

Our RR vs DC Dream11 predictions for this match:

  • Wicketkeeper(s): Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson
  • Batter(s): David Warner, Yashasvi Jaiswal
  • All-rounder(s): Ravi Ashwin, Mitchell Marsh, Axar Patel
  • Bowler(s): Yuzvendra Chahal, Trent Boult, Kuldeep Yadav, Anrich Nortje
  • Recommended captain: Yashasvi Jaiswal
  • Recommended vice-captain: Mitchell Marsh

We have picked Yashasvi Jaiswal as the captain after how he played against the Super Giants. Opening the batting, the youngster played his shots freely and raced to 24 runs off 12 balls with 3 fours and a six. It was left-arm fast bowler Mohsin Khan. Had he got going, the Royals could well have scored over 200 runs. He remains an asset for RR, having broken several records both in the IPL and international cricket.

Mitchell Marsh is our vice-captain since he is a class act both with bat and ball. Against PBKS, he scored 20 off 12 balls with 2 fours and as many sixes. Although he could not get a wicket, there is always a chance that he makes a comeback with the ball against the Royals.

RR vs DC match prediction: Rajasthan Royals to win

As per the RR vs DC match prediction, the Royals are expected to finish on the winning side. After beating the Super Giants comfortably, Samson’s men will be looking to make it two out of two at home.

RR vs DC toss prediction: Chennai Super Kings to win the toss and bat first

As per the RR vs DC toss prediction, teams should opt to bat first after winning the toss. Putting runs on the board turned out to be fruitful for the Royals and their tactics for the game on Thursday may not change.

Player of the Match prediction: Yashasvi Jaiswal

The kind of form Yashasvi Jaiswal is in, there is every chance for him to win the Player of the Match award. It is only a matter of time before the southpaw tees off and shows what he is capable of. Trent Boult, Jos Buttler and Yuzvendra Chahal are also strong contenders to win the award.

Rajasthan Royals vs Delhi Capitals betting odds

  • Rajasthan Royals odds: 1.70
  • Delhi Capitals odds: 2.15  

The RR vs DC betting odds are tilted towards the Royals, who will again be playing at home after beating Rahul’s LSG. The Capitals are low on confidence and it would be tough for them to roll over the hosts in the latter’s backyard.
