New Delhi, Apr 11: The Vivo IPL 2018 is in its preliminary stage, but the tournament has already seen many exciting matches. On Wednesday, Rajasthan’s RR will take on Delhi’s DD at home and will try to outplay Gautam Gambhir’s team. The RR has returned to the tournament after two years and had a dismal first game against Hyderabad. RR needs the momentum to go forward in the tournament, whereas DD would want to get the combination right.
DD’s Gautam Gambhir would want his team to click as a unit against Rajasthan, who would have home advantage. DD has a decent pace attack with stalwarts like Trent Boult and Mohammed Shami and Chris Morris. They were expensive in their first outing against RCB, but they are lethal on their day. A good spell or two can decide the match in DD’s favour. DD’s two batsmen–Gautam Gambhir and Rishabh Pant– are in good touch and can be among runs.
RR also has a strong team with the likes of Ajinkya Rahane, Sanju Samson, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler and Jaydev Unadkat in the Team. A good performance by any of them could help the team win their first game in IPL 2018.
