Rajasthan Royals v Delhi Capitals Preview

Historically, this match is too close to call. In 22 meetings, both sides have won an equal share of the games – 11. However, most people will just look at last season’s league placements where Delhi Capitals finished close runners up while Rajasthan Royals floundered at the bottom and naturally pick DC. However, after a strong auction outing that saw them bring in the likes of Chris Morris and Shivam Dube, expect to see the Royals make a much stronger go of it this year. But the Delhi Capitals have all-rounders like Marcus Stoinis and Axar Patel to choose from, so we’re expecting an entertaining game this time around.

Rajasthan Royals v Delhi Capitals Odds

Delhi Capitals are the bookies favourites. A RR win is priced at TBC while a DC victory is TBC.

Rajasthan Royals v Delhi Capitals Tips

Expect a big game from new captain Rishabh Pant, who was recently handed the Delhi Capitals captaincy after an injury removed Shreyas Iyer from contention during last month’s ODI series against India. Pant’s side are one of the more balanced in this season’s competition, and we expect to see a strong performance at the bat from them, which is why we fancy them not only to win the game, but game sixes as well at a price of TBC. We believe Ben Stokes will lead the way for Rajasthan Royals and be their top batsman which you can get for TBC here on NetBet.

Ben Stokes to be Rajasthan Royals’ top batsman – TBC

RR have a whole host of talented batsmen, with Jos Buttler costing a similar price and appearing to be an equally good bet here, but we fancy Ben Stokes as the man to impress on Thursday.

Delhi Capitals to win game sixes – TBC

They’re going to win the match in our opinion, but they’ll also get the most match sixes which is always a better odds bet.
