Indian Premier League 2020: Delhi Capitals vs Rajasthan Royals, Match No. 30

Match predictions

Winners Prediction: Delhi Capital`s lost their previous match against Mumbai Indians by 5 wickets. Injuries to Rishab Pant and Ishant Sharma (rules out of IPL2020) will be a big setback for the team in the middle order. Rajasthan Royals young duo of Rahul Tewatia and Riyan Parag impressed everyone with their composure in the chase. Rajasthan Royals will be high on confidence after this morale-boosting win. But, we expect Delhi Capitals to win this match. 

Score Prediction: Dubai pitch ash slightly slowed down and the scores have dropped down from 180s to 160s in the last few matches.  We expect average score to be around 160-170 runs in this match. 

Toss Prediction: Teams batting first has won 10 out of the 13 matches played here and pitch is expected to slow down in the second innings of the match. So batting first will be best option here.

  • RR ended their 4-match losing streak with a win in their last match. 
  • DC beat RR by 46 runs in their previous encounter this season.

Players to Bet on:

DELHI CAPITALS

  1. Shreyas Iyer Iyer will have a big role to play in the middle overs owing to the absence of Pant and he needs to play till the end and help his team post a big score.  Iyer has been scoring consistently with the bat this season. 
  2. Marcus Stoinis – Stoinis provides great depth and balance to the DC team with his all-round prowess. He has been in a good form with the bat band ball this season so far.    
  3. Kagiso Rabada – Rabada leads the bowling charts with 17 wickets in 7 matches and he will look to continue wicket hunt in this match too.  Rabada has picked up at least 1 wicket in all the matches this season. 

RAJASTHAN ROYALS

  1. Jos Buttler – Buttler is having a quiet IPL barring his 70 runs against MI. We expect him to fire in this match and make a big score. 
  2. Rahul Tewatia – Tewatia has been a big addition to the RR team. He has been scoring vital runs down the order and bowls his overs effectively in the middle overs. 
  3. Jofra Archer – Archer has taken 9 wickets so far in the match and we expect him to continue his good bowling in this match too. He has been threatening the batsmen with pace and bounce.
