DC vs RR Preview: Pant led Delhi to face underdog Rajasthan

Rishabh Pant and Sanju Samson, two of the finest wicket-keepers of India, will face each-other, as Delhi Capitals faces Rajasthan Royals in the UAE leg of IPL 2021. Both teams have started their second leg campaign on wining note. Rajasthan won a thriller against Punjab, while Delhi defeated Hyderabad. DC are currently second on the points table and Rajasthan at 6th. If RR manages to win against DC, they will enter in top 4 of the points table, leaving behind KKR and Rajasthan, while a win against RR will mean that DC on the top of points table.

Before the match starts at 3:30 pm IST, let’s have a look on squads, predicted XI and their head-to-head records.

Delhi Capitals

Currently DC are in Red-hot form and can beat any side in the league. The depth in DC’s squad is unimaginable. Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw as opening batsmen can smash any bowling line-up. Shreyash Iyer and Rishabh Pant has enough power to provide that strength in middle order. Shimron Hetmyer and Stoinis in lower order can send the ball all over the park in death overs. The bowling unit of Nortje, Rabada and Avesh Khan make a deadly trio.

Predicted XI: Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Marcus Stoinis, Shimron Hetmyer, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje and Avesh Khan

Rajasthan Royals

Sanju Samson led Royals are a team of youngster and they can go to any length to win it for their team. With the unavailability of Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, Jofra Archer, Rajasthan are definitely gonna miss their key players. Bowling attack of Kartik Tyagi and Chetan Sakariya led by Mustafizur Rahman is the asset of RR. However RR lacks that batting fire-power, compared to DC. But their win against Punjab have boosted their confidence and it won’t be as easy task for DC to beat them.
