Delhi Capitals has won their last 3 out of 4 matches they played against Rajasthan Royals


 Rajasthan Royals will take on Delhi Capitals in 23rd game of the tournament and pressure would be on Rajasthan Royals to win this game. While Delhi Capitals will definitely try to win this game and regain top position in points table. 

Rajasthan Royals are entering into this game after loosing their last three matches while Delhi Capitals are flying high this time and have already defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore in their last game. Both the teams have had different journeys so far. 

Rajasthan Royals are facing lot of challenges in terms of getting their team's balance right. They started their campaign on a higher note by winning both of their opening matches which includes highest run chase ever in IPL history. Both of their victory came at Sharjah. Playing matches outside Sharjah, Rajasthan witnessed three consecutive losses. 

Ben Stokes has joined the team but he won't feature in tournament till 10th of October due to quarantine restrictions. Rajasthan is left with fewer option to get their combination right. David Miller could be useful as this game will be played at Sharjah. It's a small ground comparatively to Dubai and Abu Dhabi, hence a mistimed shot also goes over the boundary ropes. Player like Miller may turn around things for Rajasthan on surfaces like Sharjah. 

However they have Sanju Samson, Steve Smith, Jos Buttler at top of the order and trio were very dangerous while playing at Sharjah in first two matches. However, Royals do have talented batsmen like Rahul Tewatia, Mahipal Lomror who have the ability to score quick runs. More than batting, Rajasthan will want to make changes in their bowling department. 

Apart from Jofra Archer none other bowler has been effective. Shreyas Gopal bagged two wickets in last game but at Sharjah he might not be effective due to batting friendly pitch and shorter boundaries. Ankit Rajpoot has got chances but his economy rate does not justify his inclusion. 

On the other hand, Delhi Capitals has been in fine form. In terms of batting, Prithvi Shaw along with Shikhar Dhawan have provided good start to the team. Skipper Shreyas is technical sound batsman who has the ability to score runs as per match condition. Down the order, Marcus Stoinis has been effective and scored valuable runs for his team whenever he got chance to bat on. 

In terms of bowling, Kagiso Rabada is strong candidate for the purple cap as he is picking up atleast one wicket per game this season. His fellow South African pacer Anrich Nortje has been a great addition and is bowling brilliantly. Talking about spin department, Axar Patel and Ravichandran Ashwin are proving to be effective in middle overs of the game. 

Overall Delhi Capitals is much balanced side than Rajasthan Royals and current form is with Capitals. But in cricket, every game is a new game, so a cracking contest is on the cards.
