Delhi Capitals will play Rajasthan Royals in the 56th match of the IPL 2024. The game will be played at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi and will start at 7:30 PM IST on May 7th.

Deli Capitals have managed to hold on to their dream of playing IPL 2024 playoffs after picking some form late in the tournament. The team has five wins in 11 games but four out of those wins have come in last six matches. If Delhi Capitals can win the remaining three games, they will qualify for the playoffs and that will be a massive achievement.

Meanwhile, RR have been unstoppable. With 8 wins in 10 games, they have already qualified for the IPL 2024 playoffs.  RR have lost two games but they were the favourites to win both those games as well.

Toss could be crucial as teams have preferred to chase in Delhi. It is a small ground and even a score of 230-240 is not a safe total here.

DC vs RR Pitch Report

The wicket at the Arun Jaitley Stadium has been a graveyard for bowlers. DC scored 257-4 in the last game here and MI almost chased the target, losing by just 10 runs. Anything under 230 should be a very easy chase here.

DC Team News & Playing 11

DC Team News

Anrich Northe could return to the playing XI in place of Lizaad Williams. Also, Ishant Sharma could come into the playing XI bolster the bowling attack. DC were forced to play Kumar Kushagra as impact player in last game, leaving them short on bowling option. They won’ make this mistake again. Also, David Warner can come in place of Shai Hope.

DC Key Players

  • Jake Frazer McGurk – Jake Frazer McGurk has been outstanding for DC. He has been in great hitting mode and has kept David Warner out of the playing XI which is a big achievement. He has scored 259 runs in 6 matches at a strike rate of 233.
  • Rishabh Pant –  Rishabh Pant has also played crucial match knocks for DC. Leading from the front, Pant has scored 398 runs at a strike rate of 38, including three fifties. Against a class RR bowling attack, Pant will have to be at the peak of his prowess if DC have to beat the Sanju Samson-led side.
  • Kuldeep Yadav – Kuldeep Yadav scored 35 in the last game, showing he can also contribute runs when required. However, bowling is his primary job and he has been outstanding for DC this season, taking 12 wickets.
  • Axar Patel – With nearly 150 runs and nine wickets, Axar Patel has contributed well to DC’s campaign this year.  His is very underrated but always contributes to a team in one way or the other. He also earned a place in India’s T20 WC squad given his IPL performances.

DC Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Sumit Kumar, Praveen Dubey, Kumar Kushagra, Ricky Bhui, Mukesh Kumar

Ricky Bhui can be used as an impact player if the team needs a batter else Mukesh Kumar can be the impact player if the team wants a bowler.

DC Team Form

The Capitals have picked up great form. They have won four out of the last six games they have played. Overall, they have five wins in 11 games.

DC Predicted Playing 11

Abishek Porel, Prithvi Shaw,  Jake Frazer McGurk, Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Tristan Stubbs, Axar Patel, Shai Hope/David Warner, Kuldeep Yadav, Ishant Sharma, Khaleel Ahmed, Anrich Nortje

RR Team News & Playing 11

RR Team News

Rajasthan Royals have not made a lot of chances to their playing XI throughout the season and even though they have qualified for the playoffs, they should stick to the same team combination.

RR Key Players

  • Jos Buttler –  Buttler has blown hot and cold in the season. He has scored a couple of centuries but in other matches, he has failed to make much contribution. However, on a belter of the surface, Buttler can be absolutely brutal at the top.
  • Riyan Parag – Everytime RR find itself in trouble, Parag has come to the team’s rescue. In the last game against SRH, chasing 202, RR were 6-2 and Parag played a 77 run knock to almost help the team win. He has scored 409 runs this season at a strike rate of 160.
  • Yuzvendra Chahal – Chahal was hammered by SRH in last game but he is a champion bowler and knows how to bounce back. The conditions won’t be easy but Chahal can outfox the batters with his variations. He has taken 13 wickets in 10 games this season.
  • Sandeep Sharma –  Sandeep has nine wickets in five games this season. He has consistently taken wickets with the new ball and thus he will have a big role to play against DC. If he can remove 2-3 early wickets, RR will take control of the game.

RR Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Tom Kohler Cadmore, Shubham Dubey, Navdeep Saini, Rovman Powell/Avesh Khan, Tanush Kotian

If RR is chasing, Rovman Powell could be used as an impact player. If they are batting first, Avesh Khan could be left out of playing XI and later used an as impact player.

RR Team Form

RR have been outstanding. They have won eight out of the 10 games. They were the first team to qualify for IPL 2024 playoffs.

RR Predicted Playing 11

Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson (c & wk), Riyan Parag, Dhruv Jurel, Shimron Hetmyer, Ravichandran Ashwin, Trent Boult, Yuzvendra Chahal, Sandeep Sharma. Avesh Khan/RovmanPowell
