RR vs DC Dream11 Prediction: The 7th match of the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2021) will be played between Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Capitals at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on Thursday, April 14, 2021.
RR vs DC Match Preview
The Rajasthan Royals (RR) will face the Delhi Capitals (DC) in the seventh match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 on Thursday at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. Both teams have had a contrasting start to their IPL 2021 campaign. While Delhi Capitals led by Rishabh Pant thrashed Chennai Super Kings 7 wickets in their first match, Rajasthan Royals, on the other hand, have lost their first match of the season against Punjab Kings by 4 runs.
Samson, whose century went in vain on Monday (April 12), will look get his Royals side back to winning ways. However, things will not be as easy as they seem for Royals. With Jofra Archer nursing an injury, they already are missing the services of their bowling kingpin. Now, their star all-rounder Ben Stokes has been ruled out of the season. Hence, it is yet to be seen that who among Livingston and Miller will replace Stokes in the playing XI on Thursday. As of now, the only positive sign for the Royals is the form of Sanju Samson, who played a stunning knock in their defeat against Punjab Kings.
Delhi Capitals, on the other hand, are looking for a well-balanced team. We can also see Kagiso Rabada joining the team on Thursday as he has started practising from Wednesday. However, his availability is yet to be confirmed by the franchise. Rabada’s compatriot Anrich Nortje would have also made the cut, but he has tested positive for COVID-19 on Wednesday and is set to miss out. They would’ve also opted for a change in the spin department, but since Axar Patel is still not available, Amit Mishra will keep his place. The rest of the team is expected to remain unchanged.
Both the matches at the Wankhede Stadium so far have seen the batsmen smashing the bowlers all around the ground. And, both Rajasthan Royals, as well as Delhi Capitals, have some big hitters in the squad. And, surely, we can expect the willow wielders from both sides to go hammer and tongs after the bowlers when the two teams face off against each other on Thursday.
