Delhi Capitals hope to push for top four finish
- Rajasthan aim to book slot in top three
- DC back after big loss to Chennai
Rajasthan Royals have odds of 1.73 to beat Delhi Capitals and go level on points with the second-placed team in the points table. RR have quality in their batting, but will miss Shimron Hetmyer for this big fixture.
Delhi Capitals, meanwhile, are in with a chance still to make the top four, but will need to ensure they win all remaining games. Beating Rajasthan will be a tough proposition for them, but if they do it, it will be a big boost to their playoff chances. Delhi’s chances of winning this game stand at 2.07
What happened earlier…
We saw a high-scoring thriller when these teams met earlier in the season… Rajasthan Royals put up a solid 222 batting first with a century from Jos Buttler. Delhi Capitals responded strong with four players making quickfire 30-plus knocks, but fell short of the target.
Rajasthan are the better side with bat and ball and are favourites to win this battle.Recommended Bet by 10CRIC
The match could be decided by the contest between Rajasthan’s batting and Delhi’s bowling attack, which copped some stick from Chennai Super Kings last game. In the end, it will come down to how DC can restrict Jos Buttler.
Keep an eye on…
Anrich Nortje: Nortje adds some much-needed pace to the Delhi line-up and DC will bank on him to ruffle the Rajasthan top and middle-order. He could go for runs in the process, but it wouldn’t matter if he can get the big fish, Buttler.
Yuzvendra Chahal: The purple cap holder, Yuzvendra Chahal has been really good in picking up wickets in the middle and death overs and RR will bank on him for wickets in the middle.
TIP: Chahal is in good form with the ball. Back Chahal at 3.31 to be the top bowler today!
