After three successive defeats, Rajasthan Royals will now be aiming for their victory against Delhi Capitals on Friday. The Royals had a great start and won both matches in Sharjah, but suffered defeats in all three matches at big grounds like Abu Dhabi and Dubai. On the other hand, under the captaincy of Shreyas Iyer, Delhi has done well in all three departments and won four out of five matches.
For Rajasthan, situations are still critical as they have not found their best playing XI yet. The return of Ben Stokes can give them hope, but the England all-rounder is currently under quarantine and will be available only after October 11. As a result, Stokes is not available for the Rajasthan Royals vs Delhi Capitals IPL match.
The form of captain Steve Smith and Sanju Samson has suddenly deteriorated and the rest of the batsmen hadn’t impressed much.
Delhi’s team, on the other hand, is one of the strongest teams in the ongoing IPL. Captain Iyer is in excellent form while openers Prithvi Shaw and Rishabh Pant have also done well. Marcus Stoinis has scored two half-centuries till now.
In bowling, Kagiso Rabada has taken 12 wickets so far. South African fast bowler Anrich Nortje has also performed well. Harshal Patel, who replaced Ishant Sharma, took two for 34 against Kolkata Knight Riders but conceded 43 runs in the last match. R Ashwin, who came in as fit for Amit Mishra, took one wicket for 26 runs.
