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 is as followed:-
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, Jos Buttler and Sanju Samson are the strength of their batting unit. Since Buttler opened for Royals he made many 50+ scores and will be expected to go for a century as well. Stokes, Tripathi and Steven Smith are additional factors and can be scoring guns in lower overs. We predict Smith to score more than 50 runs.
Dc:- The team will be in a question of who will lead the team? It can be Dhawan or maybe Shreyas Iyer will continue with the captainship. The bowling department of Delhi Capitals looks interesting with many overseas options like Boult, Rabada, Lamicchane, Keemo Paul with also Indian bowlers like Ishant Sharma, Bandaru Ayyappa and Avesh Khan with spin leading Amit Mishra with the back of Rahul Tewatia. It will be very difficult for the selectors to make a playing XI. here are our match predictions.
Dc predicted playing XI:- Dhawan, Shaw, Iyer, Karla, Pant, Morris, Axar, Boult, Rabada, Ishant, Lamicchane.
RR:- It will be a momentum for them as Steven Smith returns back to the side. 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, Vohra, Samson, Smith, Turner, Buttler, Tripathi, Gowtham, Unadkat, Kulkarni, Sodhi.
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.
