IPL 2021`s second leg is up and running and teams are trying to get their eye in and find their right balance. But, they don’t have too much time left as only half of the league matches are left and teams left in the middle and bottom of the table can’t afford further slide. Delhi Capitals are comfortably sitting at the top and Shreyas Iyer`s return has further boosted their batting line-up. Rajasthan Royals performed a Houdini`s act to claim the 2 crucial points in the last match by defending 8 off the final 2 overs. Royals have a chance to the top of the table but need to overcome the Delhi Capitals challenge in this crucial encounter.

Delhi Capitals Preview

Delhi Capitals chased down the target of 139 runs with their trio of Shikhar Dhawan (47 runs), Shreyas Iyer (41* runs), and Rishabh Pant (35* runs) playing vital knocks with the bat. Marcus Stoinis was injured and his availability is subject to his recovery. Prithvi Shaw missed out with the bat and Shimron Hetmyer`s services were not required in the last game.  

Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje delivered thunderbolts with the ball as they claimed combined figures of 8-0-49-5 in the match.  Axar Patel picked up 2 crucial wickets while Ravi Ashwin looked threatening but was lucky to miss out on wickets. Avesh Khan bowled economically with figures of 4-0-27-0.

Top players to bet on:

Shikhar Dhawan – Dhawan leads the orange cap race with 400+ runs and his 47 runs set the tempo for their chase n the last match. We expect Dhawan to continue his purple patch in this match too.

Anrich Nortje – Nortje delivered the top 8 fastest deliveries of the tournament in his very first match and he ended with bowling figures of 4-0-12-2. His ability to bowl 150+ kmph with good accuracy can be big challenge for any player.

Delhi Capitals Predicted Playing XI:

Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Marcus Stoinis/Steve Smith, Shimron Hetmyer, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Avesh Khan

Rajasthan Royals Preview

RR scored a massive 185 runs in their opening match with their batters Evin Lewis (36 runs), Jaiswal (49 runs), Mahipal Lormor (43 runs), and Livingstone (25 runs) scoring runs at a good rate in the top-5. But their lower middle order suffered a collapse from 166/3 to 185-all out scoring less than 25 runs in last 4 overs.

Their bowlers got their first wicket in 11.5 overs giving 120 runs but kept fighting hard with the ball. Karthik Tyagi claimed 2 wickets while Chetan Sakariya and Rahul Tewatia claimed a wicket each in the match. Mustafizur Rahman gave just 4 runs in penultimate over and Karthik Tyagi gave just 1 run in the last over as they won the match by 2 runs.

Top players to bet on:

Mahipal Lormor – Lormor took the attack to the opposition spinners scoring 43 runs off 17 balls hitting 2 boundaries and 4 sixes in the match. We expect to play a big role in the middle order in this match too.

Karthik Tyagi – Tyagi had bowling figures of 4-0-29-2 but mainly held his nerve when it mattered defending 4 runs of the last over. He will be high on confidence after such a superb performance in the last game.

Rajasthan Royals Predicted Playing XI:

Yashasvi Jaiswal, Evin Lewis, Sanju Samson (c & wk), Liam Livingstone, Mahipal Lomror, Riyan Parag, Rahul Tewatia, Chris Morris, Mustafizur Rahman, Chetan Sakariya, Kartik Tyagi

Weather Conditions

Abu Dhabi will have temperatures nearing 40s with humid conditions during the evening. Dew might come in the second innings of the match.

Venue Details

Abu Dhabi will have a slightly greenish track with spongy tennis bounce for the pacers. The ball might seam and swing around slightly till it loses its shine. Spinners might enjoy the big boundaries at this venue. We expect the average scores to be around 160-170 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bowl

Both teams will look to bowl first in this match as the dew might settle down in the second half of the match making life difficult for the spinners. Chasing is the best option in this venue. 

DC had an all-round match with both their batting and bowling attacks performing well and their balance might take a blow if they miss Marcus Stoinis as they don’t have any sixth bowling option. Rajasthan top order kept attacking the opposition but their lower middle order failed to capitalize on the start and their bowlers too looked clueless for the first half of the match. But, they made a brilliant comeback to win the match out of nowhere. We expect Delhi Capitals to win the match as they have a better batting and bowling units when compared to Rajasthan Royals in terms of experience.
