Time – 7:30 PM IST

Venue – Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah

RR VS DC Match Preview: 

Rajasthan Royals has disappointed after a tremendous start to the IPL season. Their batting has failed to score runs and put pressure on the opposition. Jos Buttler, in the last match against MI, played a hopeless knock of 70 since no other batsman was able to last. Sanju Samson will be a key player who has a good record playing at Sharjah. 

RR bowlers, too, haven't been able to make much impact this season apart from Jofra Archer. Kartik Tyagi was a good addition to the bowling line up in the last match. Shreyas Gopal has been in decent touch with the ball. It will be interesting to see if Steve Smith will play the same bowling lineup in this match. 

Delhi Capitals haven't done much wrong in this season. The batsmen have been in great form and everyone has chipped in with crucial runs at different stages of the game. Marcus Stoinis' finishing skills have been the biggest advantage of DC. 

Shreyas Iyer will be delighted to see the variety and bench strength in the bowling department. Kagiso Rabada has led the bowling unit and each bowler has responded well. Axar Patel's form with the ball is another advantage DC is having. He has choked the batsmen in his spells and has taken important wickets upfront. 

Rajasthan Royals has lost three matches in a row, however, they will be back in Sharjah where they started their IPL season with a bang. Delhi Capitals will look to continue with the momentum they have with them. 

Head to Head:

Total – 20

Rajasthan Royals – 11

Delhi Capitals – 9
