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.
