Team News

Delhi Capitals

DC are coming into this huge game after losing their previous match to Kolkata Knight Riders. The consistency has been a problem for Delhi and it would be difficult for them when they meet Rajasthan on Tuesday. Prithvi Shaw couldn't contribute with more than 13 runs. He hasn't looked good this season. David Warner is also out and the responsibility to provide a good start has come upon the shoulders of Jake Fraser-McGurk.

Fraser-McGurk has displayed his sensational hitting. The right-handed batter has already struck 3 half-centuries with his highest IPL score being 84 runs. The South African youngster, Tristan Stubbs is a vital batter in the DC unit. Stubbs has scored 277 runs at an impressive strike rate of 185.91 so far this season. 

Captain Rishabh Pant has been impressive since his comeback from the horrible accident. He has scored 398 runs for his side this season and is the main strength in the middle order. Axar Patel is delivering some brilliant performances with the bat or bowl in every game.

Mukesh Kumar didn't feature in the last game and his consistency has been a huge issue for Delhi. The right-arm pacer bowls mainly in the death overs but is conceding lots of runs. Kuldeep Yadav is having a brilliant season but he needs to scalp wickets more frequently. Lizaad Williams has replaced Nortje but that isn't the solution. Khaleel has picked up 12 wickets this season but his economy is concerning which isn't improving.

Rajasthan Royals

Rajasthan Royals are sitting at the second spot of the points table and they are looking like the favorites to lift the title this season. They did lose the last game against SRH but that was only their second loss of the season. Jos Buttler and Yashasvi Jaiswal have scored some valuable runs at the top for their side which have given the middle-order batters more freedom. Jaiswal scored a half-century in the last game but was unfortunate to lose the game.

Sanju Samson has been the most crucial player for Rajasthan in the top order, scoring 385 runs in 10 matches with an average of 64.17. Riyan Parag played a magnificent inning of 77 in the previous game but failed to win the game for his side. Hetmyer isn't looking confident but he knows how to make a comeback and an improvement is dearly expected from him in the game against DC. Jurel also failed to score runs in the last game and he hasn't been consistent.

Trent Boult and Sandeep Sharma are highly expected to feature as the leading pace bowlers with Avesh Khan bowling the death overs. Avesh picked up two crucial wickets in the last game but he needs to work on his economy. Yuzvendra Chahal conceded 62 runs in the last game and despite scalping 13 wickets this season, he isn't the best bowler for RR.

His economy of 9.62 is concerning especially before the World Cup. Ashwin looked good with the ball in the previous game but the ex-CSK all-rounder has picked up only 2 wickets this season. Boult and Sandeep Sharma are leading the bowling unit of RR and they have been exceptional in the powerplays.
