IPL 2020 DC vs RR preview: Delhi Capitals look to bounce back against Rajasthan Royals

Shreyas Iyer-led Delhi Capitals, who suffered a crashing defeat at the hands of Mumbai Indians in their last outing, will be looking to get back to winning ways when they take on an inconsistent Rajasthan Royals in a clash at Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Wednesday. Shreyas Iyer’s men will have slight upper edge over their opponents in terms of confidence as they beat them convincingly in the last meeting a few days back.

Delhi are currently placed in the top half of the table with 10 points, while RR are way below at the seventh spot with only six points. The good thing for Rajasthan Royals is that English all-rounder Ben Stokes is now part of the team, while Delhi will be missing Rishabh Pant’s presence in the middle order. Pant was ruled out of the match following an injury.

Delhi’s strength remains their  strong batting line-up. Shreyas Iyer, Shikhar and Marcus Stoinus are in good form and the team will be expected to put up a big total, or chase down a big score. Royals, on the other hand have been too dependent on Rahul Tewatia’s performance. They will have to get their act together and perform in all departments  in a bid to keep their hopes alive in the tournament.
