In the 36th match of IPL 2021, Delhi Capitals will take on Rajasthan Royals in Abu Dhabi on Saturday. RR defeated DC the last time these two teams met this season. 

Delhi Capitals has a strong batting lineup. The two openers - Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw - are in great form. Shreyas Iyer made a terrific comeback after his injury in the last match, while Rishabh Pant, too, had a decent outing with the bat. The only concern will be Marcus Stoinis' injury and his availability. 


If Stoinis is injured, DC is likely to bring in Tom Curran, who can be handy with the bat and ball. Anrich Nortje will be the key bowler for Delhi along with Kagiso Rabada. 
Rajasthan Royals, too, has some big hitters in the lineup - Evin Lewis, Sanju Samson, Liam Livingstone, and Mahipal Lomror. If the batting clicks, it won't settle for a sub-par score. 

Bowling has been a bit inconsistent. Although Mustafizur Rahman and Kartik Tyagi were terrific the other night, it won't be easy to stop runs against DC's batting lineup. 

DC v RR Head-to-head (H2H):

Total - 23
Delhi Capitals - 11
Rajasthan Royals - 12

DC v RR, 36th Match Probable Playing XI:

Delhi Capitals (DC) - Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Marcus Stoinis/Tom Curran, Shimron Hetmyer, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Avesh Khan
