Delhi Capitals vs Rajasthan Royals - IPL 2024 (May 7th)

match comparison for today

Delhi Capitals (DC) vs. Rajasthan Royals (RR) match comparison for today:

  • Batting:

• DC: With Prithvi Shaw and maybe Jake Fraser-McGurk, DC has a potent opening combo. Their middle-order pillars are Axar Patel and Rishabh Pant. They may find themselves missing Shimron Hetmyer's offensive prowess now that he is off the squad.

• RR: If Jos Buttler plays, he and Yashasvi Jaiswal make a potent opening combination for RR. Their middle-order mainstays are Sanju Samson and Riyan Parag. Rovman Powell strengthens the lower order with firepower.

  • Bowling:

• DC: DC boasts a good combination of pacers (Khaleel Ahmed and Rasikh Dar) and spinners (Kuldeep Yadav and Axar Patel). They might not appreciate Kagiso Rabada's experience.

• RR: With Trent Boult and Avesh Khan up front, RR boasts a strong bowling assault. A strong spin tandem is provided by Ravichandran Ashwin and Yuzvendra Chahal. In the final overs, Sandeep Sharma contributes his experience.

  • Comparatively speaking:

• RR has a modest advantage over DC in their previous encounters, particularly at today's location, Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur. When they met here in the IPL 2024, RR prevailed by a margin of 12 runs.

•With a 116 (2022) against DC, the highest individual score by an RR batsman against them, Jos Buttler has an incredible record against them.

  • Present State:

• Both groups are coming off defeats. The previous game saw DC lose to KKR and RR lose to LSG.

  • Pitch and Conditions:

• The Delhi's Arun Jaitley Stadium typically has a batting-friendly surface. Dew may come into play in the second half of the match, supporting the spinners, but it can slow down a little later in the innings.

Overall: It looks like this will be a close competition. DC will need to improve their bowling attack if they are to recover from their setback. At home, RR will feel secure, and their potent batting lineup can score a lot of runs.

  • Who is going to prevail? 

Whichever team can perform better under duress and carry out their plans to the fullest will determine the result.
