DC vs RR Match Prediction & Betting Tips
DC produced some fine shots in the win over the SRH. Shikhar Dhawan and Shreyas Iyer were at their best. At the end of the game, DC have scored 13 fours. Even though RR posted more boundaries in the win over the PBKS, they might struggle against DC’s bowling and sharp fielding.
Shikhar Dhawan played a fine innings against SRH and he almost hit a half-century. Even though the strike rate was relatively moderate by his extraordinary standards, some of the shots played by the 35-year-old will truly be exceptional and it is a sign of a player on form. He is expected to compete hard with Shreyas Iyer for the top spot in the Delhi batting line-up.
Evin Lewis came up with a fine knock in the win over SRH. Even though his innings was by Yashasvi Jaiswal, the ability to form a strong opening partnership places Lewis in a good position to come up with another good innings. His form has been excellent over the summer.
