Rajasthan hope for more than just miracles
Rajasthan Royals have been saved by Rahul Tewatia miracles twice this season, but that’s not a bankable option every time. RR languish in the bottom half of the table despite a strong start and some impressive performances here and there. Their odds of beating a solid Delhi line-up that has shown quality is 2.10.
Delhi might have lost to Mumbai, the table toppers, but DC are one of the most complete line-ups in the competition. They have a strong batting line-up, a really good overseas fast bowling duo, and two excellent, yet varying in skill, spinners. Their odds of taking a win away from this game stands at 1.71.
Overall record almost in the balance
Overall Rajasthan Royals have won 11 of the 21 matches between these sides with Delhi Capitals winning 10 matches. Since 2018, though, DC have a 4-1 win loss record against them, including thrashing them earlier this season. Overall records don’t count for much but recent ones do and DC certainly have momentum running into this game.

TIP: Jos Buttler is due a big one and has looked good to fire recently. His odds of winning the Man of the Match are pretty good at 7.50.
Keep an eye on…
Rahul Tewatia: If you think he pulls off special knocks just once, think again. He’s done it twice already and nearly looked good for a third in another of those lost matches. Tewatia has finally arrived and RR have used him in a perfect role so far this season.
DC death bowling: Delhi Capitals have the strongest death bowling unit in the competition with Kagiso Rabada hitting the yorkers perfectly, Anrich Nortje bouncing batsmen and Marcus Stoinis throwing in some slower variations. They’ll be a tough nut to crack for Tewatia and co in the death.
RECOMMENDED BET: DC have a much superior all round line-up this season and have odds of 1.71 to win.
On the bowling front, DC are way stronger than RR and this effectively will be the clincher for them. This season, they have five wins and two losses in seven games. RR, on the other hand, are third from bottom of the table with just three wins in seven games.
