Dream XI Team DC vs RR IPL 2019 – Cricket Predictions Tips For Todays IPL Match Delhi vs Rajasthan at Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi:
After a miserable loss against Chennai, Delhi Capitals will hope to recover when they take on Rajasthan Royals in an away IPL encounter on Saturday. Delhi has been doing better at away games rather than at their home ground but this win makes Delhi on the second position in the cash-rich chart. It comes as a major blow for Delhi Capitals for their crucial end of the remaining campaign, South Africa pacer Kagiso Rabada has been ruled out of the remaining matches of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) due to a back injury. Rabada will now return to his country to work on his fitness ahead of the World Cup. In the absence of Rabada, Delhi’s bowling attack looked miserable, but it is the shoddy performance of the batting unit which would be a cause of concern for skipper Shreyas Iyer.
On the other hand, Rajasthan Royals is in the good form from last few matches. With Steve Smith having departed home for World Cup preparations, Ajinkya Rahane will return to captaincy duties. Ashton Turner is expected to replace Smith in the playing eleven. The departure of Smith, Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes has weakened Rajasthan’s batting, putting more responsibility on the shoulders of Rahane, Sanju Samson and Liam Livingstone but the team’s bowling unit would be pumped up after the leg-spinner Shreyas Gopal’s hat-trick in the rain-truncated match against RCB. In the last encounter between the two sides last month, it was Delhi Capitals who came out on top in Jaipur by six wickets in a high-scoring affair. Rajasthan is on the fifth position with eleven points.

Wicketkeeping: It will be a tricky choice to pick between the two solid keepers – Sanju Samson or Rishabh Pant. But in-form Pant is any day a big threat to the opposition than Samson. Also, Pant’s batting form and his ability to read the situation better make him a valuable asset for the side.
Batting: Both Delhi and Rajasthan boast of some of the biggest names of world cricket ranging from – Ajinkya Rahane, Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Shreyas Iyer, Pant or Liam Livingstone. As the Delhi track is known to assist the slow ball bowlers a little more – it would be ideal to pick batsmen who can rotate the strike in the middle and keep the scoreboard ticking.
Bowling: Keeping the nature of Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium track in mind, the role of Trent Boult, Varun Aaron, Ishant Sharma become very crucial for their respective sides. Shreyas Gopal and Axar Patel can be picked as the spinner in the side.
