Two teams facing today has different purpose. RR will have to win the match to enter play offs while DC look to finish in top 2. A win alone wouldn’t be enough for RR, few results will have to come in their way. A win Either for SRH or KKR will ruin their chances.
Deos RR has the Personal to win the game?
RR is struggling with resources. All their Marquee players left IPL on national duty. First its Jos Butler. Now their skipper Steve Smith also returned to Australia . This will also give Reigns back to Ajinkya Rehane. Who Leadership post faced the brunt after bad start to tournament. He picked u form after leaving the captaincy. Sanju Samson has to be consistent if he wishes to catch selectors eye. HE is unable to convert his starts. His keeping abilities should complement batting if he wants to compete with Rishab Pant. Ashton Turner finally scored a run in last game. And in the Absence of Steve Smith he is likely to fill in the role. ISh Sodhi will also be in team to strengthen the spin with Shreyas Gopal.
Abrupt Departure of Rabada
Rabada is current purple cap holder. He is the back bone of DC’s Success in this edition. DC rested him last game after confirming berth in Playoffs. But Cricket South Africa has different plans for Delhi Capitals. CSA called Rabada back for Precautionary Measures of world cup. This will definitely hurt DC’s bowling. Especially with the kind of form he is in. His spot will be filled with Trent Boult. He is undoubtedly a world class act but can he match Rabada’s form? Only time will tell.
DC had last laugh at jaipur, But history is in favour of RR. With RR having limited resources, We Pick it should be a easy win for DC.
