The IPL tournament which can also be called a Vacation plan for everyone will see the Delhi Capitals playing the Rajasthan Royals at Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in the capital city of India.
Today’s match prediction for DC vs RR :-
The Pitch report for Feroz Shah Kotla was batting friendly but nowadays it has been beneficial for the new ball, the average T20 score is between 160-180 in the 1st innings. So the team winning toss can do anything depending on their squad.
If DC bats first (predicted score 160-190):
The capitals are filled with young and emerging bat holders who are fearless in terms of striking the ball away from the ground. The top 4 batsmen of Dc consisting Dhawan, Iyer, Shaw, and Rishabh Pant are the core of the team’s run-getters. Rishabh Pant will be the X-factor in the team as he can go against any team’s strike bowler.
If RR bats first (predicted score 140-170):
Rajasthan is a quality batting side who can make easily 100 runs in first ten overs, Livingstone has been the replacement for Jos Buttler. He has been a great striker of the bowl and will open the batting along side Ajinkya Rahane. Young Parag will continue to maintain the strength of the power hitting shots in the middle order. We can expect a huge total if players like Sanju Samson and Rahane stay till the end of the innings. Binny will be in the side to score at the death overs.
Delhi Capitals:- Rabada took a break in the last match and we are hoping him to play today’s game. We could also see Colin Munro making a comeback to the side in this final match. As DC has already qualified, it has become a race for the top two positions between Mumbai and DC. Chennai has already secured its position in the top 2. We could also see the Nepali spinner to make a comeback in today’s match in place of Amit Mishra.
DC Predicted Playing XI:-
Dhawan, Shaw, Iyer, Colin, Pant, Morris, Axar, Karla, Rabada, Ishant, Lamicchane.
Top 3 Predicted Playing XI:
Iyer: He has been a calm captain and has successfully lead the team to the playoffs. They lost the last match against chennai, but he has remained solid till the end of the innings. They would require the same performance in today’s match and get the team to a victory.
Rabada: Since DC have already made it to the playoffs it will be doubtful if Rabada will play in today’s match or no as he rested in the last match. We predicted he will be the key player to get DC to a victory.
Axar: He will be another key bowler along side Rabada. This young spinner has really improved on his line and lengths in this years IPL season. We predict that he will be the key wicket taker in the middle overs of the innings.
Rahane will lead the side as Steve Smith has left for world cup preperation. Livingstone also adds a batting option in the upper order, Shreyas Gopal, Mahipal Lomror, Ish Sodhi and Ashton Turner add the spin factor in team’s strength which will be helpful to them at Delhi. Gowtham is the X-factor who plays a major role with both the bat and bowl.
RR predicted playing XI:-
Livingstone, Rahane, Samson, Binny, Turner, Parag Tripathi, Gopal, Unadkat, Kulkarni, Thomas.
Top 3 Predicted Player:
Rahane: He will be the key player to get the team to a good start. He can play spin bowling very well and it will be an interesting battle between him and Axar patel
Parag: Has been the surprise batsman and an emerging player this season with his power hitting shots and also with his spin bowling when needed. He predict that he will play a key role in today’s match
Key Player Battles
Samson vs Iyer
Both of them know how to take the responsibility of scoring runs in the middle-over stage, and have passed many tests of pressure situations. They used to play together for Delhi Capitals in 2017 season when Rajasthan was on banned for 2 years, later Samson came back to Rajasthan after their comeback in the tournament. He has been a good selection in the middle-order for Royals and helps to get valuable runs to the team, Iyer has experienced leadership last season and will be a tough contender for Samson in the coming match. We predict Samson to score more runs than Shreyas Iyer.
