The 30th match of 2020 IPL between the Delhi Capitals against the Rajasthan Royals will take place at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai. It’s an important match for both DC and RR. Delhi Capitals will regain the top spot in the points table if they win. Rajasthan Royals will also make significant improvement in the points table if they defeat Delhi.
DC is coming up against RR after their loss against Mumbai Indians. On the other hand RR is appearing after their miraculous comeback against Sunrisers Hyderabad, registering their third victory of the season.
Discussing the Delhi Capitals the Shreyas Iyer-led side is placed at the second spot in the points table with five wins and two defeats from seven matches. The team gained the first spot earlier but lost it due to the failure with MI. So today’s game is a chance for the team to regain their position. The Capitals will be appearing without the service of Rishabh Pant. DC player Ishant Sharma was already ruled out of the tournament earlier. The young bowler of DC, Kagiso Rabada is already the purple cap holder of the tournament. Also the performance from Marcus Stoinis and their skipper Shreyas Iyer is important for the team.
Rajasthan has their full-strength squad and will hope to continue their form. The Steven Smith-led side pulled off a surprising win over Sunrisers Hyderabad in their last match. The innings by Butler and Sanju Samson will be closely valuable even though the team is at full strength with the mid-order and bowling. In their last match innings played by Rahul Tewatia and Parag gifted them a marvellous victory. RR now has three wins and four defeats from seven matches. As Chennai Super Kings, Rajasthan’s hopes of qualifying for the next round are also alive.
Our Prediction: Even though toss is an important factor of the match in this tournament, we expect DC to gain back its first position on the point table.
