Having started with a comfortable win at this venue, Rajasthan will look to continue that trend. Delhi looked a bit rugged in the first match, and that could continue here. I am backing the firepower of Rajasthan to fire in the first six overs.

  • Rajasthan Royals have scored the most powerplay runs in 7 of their last 8 matches (IPL)
  • Rajasthan Royals have scored the most runs in the first six overs in 6 of their last 7 matches in Jaipur (IPL)
  • Delhi Capitals have conceded the most powerplay runs in their last 2 matches against Rajasthan (IPL)
  • Delhi Capitals have lost 6 of their last 9 away matches (IPL)

Head to Head


The sides have met 27 times in total, with 14 wins for the Royals and 13 victories for the Capitals. The last six results have alternated between the teams, with the Royals winning the latest.

That win came last season in Guwahati, when Rajasthan won their designated home match by a comfortable 57-run margin. Yashasvi Jaiswal and Jos Buttler sparkled with knocks of 60 runs each, while Trent Boult and Yuzvendra Chahal picked up three wickets each.

Rajasthan Royals Form


The Royals started their campaign at this venue with a 20-run win over the Lucknow Super Giants last Sunday. The comfortable victory gave them a positive run rate of exactly one.

Sanju Samson played a captain’s knock, staying unbeaten on 82 off 52 balls. Riyan Parag played his part with a scintillating 43 off just 29 balls as the Royals racked up 193 for 4 batting first.

The chase was stifled by Trent Boult, who picked up two quick wickets in his first two overs. From there, it was a matter of holding their nerves and staying ahead, which the Royals did by restricting Lucknow to 173.

The Royals used Nandre Burger as their impact sub, who could once again play the same role if they bat first.

Delhi Capitals Form


The Delhi Capitals lost to the Punjab Kings by four wickets in their first match in Mullanpur last Saturday. It was a game marred by injuries to pace bowler Ishant Sharma that hindered their chances.

Rishabh Pant’s return was the buzz word in that game, as Delhi batted first to make 174 for 9. It needed a late fizz from impact substitute Ishan Porel, who smacked 32, not just ten balls.

Delhi kept the chase tight, with Kuldeep Yadav’s spell (2 for 20) bossing the middle overs. Sam Curran’s late blitz trumped the Capitals, though, who lost Ishant Sharma to an injury after two overs.

Delhi Capitals Team News


Ishant Sharma’s injury could force him out of this match, with Mukesh Sharma a like-for-like replacement. Anrich Nortje has joined the squad, and his arrival could force a rejig, with Shai Hope likely to sit out for an Indian player.
