Match 40 will see Rajasthan Royals clash against Delhi capitals at Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur. Both the teams are off from victories in their last match. RR outclassed Mumbai Indians, and Delhi Capitals got the better off KXIP during their game last Saturday.
RR – Dismal season
With just three wins from 9 matches, Rajasthan Royals are struggling in the seventh position just above RCB. Except for Jos Butler, every player looks out of touch. RR is going to have a tough time ahead without Jos Butler as he’s headed home. All-rounder Ben Stokes is having an off-season and may leave anytime for their home ODI series against Pakistan. Steve Smith, who has joined the team after serving a year ban has been impressive of late but is yet to come up with a swashbuckling knock. Their original skipper Ajinkya Rahane has been struggling with inconsistency and to improve their team’s fortunes, the management has relieved him from captaincy and gave it to Steve Smith.
In the bowling front, except Joffra Archer other bowlers have failed to impress. With foreign players leaving for their respective national duties and playoff hopes hanging by a thread, RR’s management might test their bench strength. The performance of Riyan Parag who came up with a blistering knock against Mumbai Indians should see him go up the order. Stuart Binny may find himself playing a more significant role in the rest of the games. As of now, RR has nothing to lose. However, they can spoil the chances of other teams if they could repeat inspiring performance like the one they had against Mumbai last Saturday.
DC – Momentum in favour
Delhi Capitals are comfortably placed in the third position with six points. Their skipper Shreyas Iyer would be bubbling in confidence after an authoritative victory in the last match. After having a not-so-great start, DC has come to terms registering four wins out of their previous five games. Shreyas Iyer led side has a fair chance of qualifying for the playoff after a couple of more wins. They couldn’t have gotten a better opportunity than this match against this battered and bruised RR, which is struggling to find their foot.
The biggest strength of Delhi Capitals side is their bowling. With Kabiso Rabada leading from the front with 21 wickets (purple cap holder) ably supported by the spin trio (Axar Patel, Amit Mishra, and Lamichhane), they have kept their opposition in tight. However, their batting has been very inconsistent. Prithvi Shaw set the tourney on fire with a classy 99 but has been out of touch since then. Similarly, Shikhar Dhawan has been blowing hot and cold in this tournament, and he may want to steady the ship soon as the world cup is not far away.
