Rajasthan Royals vs Delhi Capitals T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2024

Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Capitals go head to head on Thursday evening in Match 9 of the 2024 Indian Premier League. The Royals beat Lucknow Super Giants by 20 runs in their opening game of the tournament whilst Delhi Capitals were beaten by Punjab Kings by 4 wickets. Read on as we preview this match. The game begins at 19:30 local time at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur on 28th March.

When you take into consideration the back end of last season, Rajasthan Royals have now won three of their last four IPL games and there is certainly a sense of momentum and growing confidence in Jaipur. That said, this will not be an easy game against a strong Delhi batting line-up.

Delhi Capitals struggled towards the end of the 2023 IPL but did look a lot more competitive against Punjab Kings in spite of the victory. The return of Rishabh Pant was welcomed by all and they will travel to Jaipur with an attacking mindset.

RR vs DC Match Toss Prediction

Over 64% of games at this venue have been won by the team batting second in the IPL. Therefore, our prediction is that both teams will choose to field first if they win the toss ahead of this match.

RR vs DC Pitch Report

We saw a good batting track at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in the first IPL game of the season with over 360 runs scored. That said, there will be some assistance for the new ball pace bowlers so batters will need to take additional care during the Powerplay.

Jaipur Weather Report

Although the forecast is for cloud cover throughout this game, it will also be warm with the temperature in the mid-30s. Humidity levels will be no higher than 30% with no rain to interrupt the match.

RR Team News & Playing 11

RR Team News

Sanju Samson will be keen to maintain the momentum in the Rajasthan Royals camp after their opening game victory. No injuries were reported during the post game interviews, and with this match being played at the same venue, we are expecting to see the same XI against Delhi Capitals.

RR Key Players

  • Sanju Samson – The captain scored three fours and six sixes in his unbeaten innings in Match 4. He has a fine record at this level and will be key in this game.
  • Yashasvi Jaiswal – The left-handed opener reached 24 before he was dismissed against Lucknow Super Giants and he was hitting the ball just as cleanly as we saw during the Test series against England.
  • Trent Boult – The left-arm pace bowler remains one of the most consistent IPL opening bowlers. He comes into this game after dismissing Quinton de Kock and Devdutt Padikkal from his first two overs in the last match.
  • Ravichandran Ashwin – The bowling all-rounder got the crucial wicket of Marcus Stoinis halfway through the 18th over against Lucknow and he was accurate throughout.

RR Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Nandre Burger, Rovman Powell, Tanush Kotian, Kuldeep Sen, Shubham Dubey

Right-arm fast bowler Sen could be a useful addition to Rajasthan’s side in this game if they require an additional bowling option. If they require a batting impact player, we expect it to be the left-handed all-rounder Abid Mushtaq.

RR Team Form

Rajasthan Royals produced quality with both bat and ball in their opening game victory of the IPL 2024.

RR Predicted Playing 11

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

DC Team News & Playing 11

DC Team News

Experienced right-arm pace bowler Ishant Sharma was only able to send down two overs in Match 2 before leaving the field with an injury and we do not expect him to be fit enough to play in this game. Rishabh Pant looked fully fit and full of energy on his return to the side.

DC Key Players

  • David Warner – The experienced Australian opener has scored 12094 T20 runs across his career and looks likely to add plenty more in this IPL season.
  • Mitchell Marsh – The batting all-rounder hit two fours and two sixes at the top of the order and we can expect a similarly attacking approach in this match.
  • Kuldeep Yadav – The left-arm wrist spinner is a handy lower-order batter but showed his quality with the ball by dismissing Prabhsimran Singh and Jitesh Sharma in Match 2.
  • Khaleel Ahmed – The 26 year old left-arm fast medium bowler will be looking to be more economical in this match but will be confident after taking two wickets in an over to begin the tournament.

DC Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Jake Fraser-McGurk, Vicky Ostwal, Pravin Dubey, Mukesh Kumar

Abishek Porel was subbed in during the defeat against Punjab Kings but impressed with the bat so we expect to see him in the starting XI for this game. Mukesh Kumar is likely to be called upon if additional bowling is required.

DC Team Form

Delhi Capitals produced 174 runs in their opening game without any player making 35+. More runs will be key if they are to be successful in this match.

DC Predicted Playing 11

David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, Shai Hope, Rishabh Pant (c) (wk), Ricky Bhui, Tristan Stubbs, Axar Patel, Sumit Kumar, Abishek Porel, Kuldeep Yadav, Khaleel Ahmed

RR vs DC Head to Head

With the overall score at 14-13 in favour of Rajasthan Royals against Delhi Capitals, it is no surprise that the winners of the last six head to head matches has alternated. Rajasthan Royals won the last clash by 57 runs.

Who will win Rajasthan Royals vs Delhi Capitals T20 Match?

There are some seriously strong batters in both line-ups as well as some brilliant left-arm bowlers. There is not much to choose between the sides but we have Rajasthan Royals as the stronger XI.

🏆 RR vs DC Prediction

This will not be an easy game for Rajasthan Royals who can expect Delhi Capitals to put up a big fight as they look to avoid their second defeat in a row. Crucial to this game will be the top three for Rajasthan who all have the ability to win a game on their own. Against a team with Kuldeep Yadav in strong form and David Warner at the top of the order, we predict that Delhi Capitals will be competitive but we are backing Rajasthan Royals to win.
