Pitch has played strong in Abu Dhabi so far but spinners have an important impact. In all matches, till now spinners have been the game changers in central overs. Delhi has quality spinners which might give them an advantage over Rajasthan. The dig in Abu Dhabi has been an excellent one for batting within the second leg of IPL 2021. However, the spinners have also extracted quite a little bit of help from the surface. The teams, batting second, have found it easier within the earlier two games. Chasing should be the way forward.
Avg first innings score: 159 (Last 24 matches in the IPL at Abu Dhabi)
Record of chasing teams: Won – 15, Lost – 9, Tied – 0
Temperature is likely to be around 37 degrees which will be the highest in the tournament. Considering it is an afternoon game, fielders will have a difficult task in the field.

Shreyas Iyer made a prosperous recovery in the last match and scored a solid 47 runs which will surely increase his confidence. He has been an essential part of the Delhi team but due to injury, he abstained from the first half. Iyer was last season’s 4th highest batsman with 519 runs and his appearance in middle order provides security to their team. He is very good versus spinners in middle overs and never pauses to take risks which makes him a hard customer to deal with.
Liam Livingstone has been cracking runs wherever he gets an opening. He was also the highest run-scorer with 348 runs with a strike rate of more than 175+. Encore in the first match, he looked in real touch and dragged a 97 meter six but got out poorly for 25 but revealed glimpses of his brute force.
After suffering many difficulties during April in the IPL, it looks like Rajasthan Royals’ luck may have changed in the UAE. They were odds on to lose against Punjab Kings before Kartik Tyagi produced a brilliant final over, allowing 2 runs when holding 4 spells of over.
The side had an outstanding workout in their first game in the UAE on Wednesday against Sunrisers Hyderabad. They had 20 overs in a field before the top order all got precious time at the crease. Capitals will now be one of the preferences for the 2021 IPL.
Delhi Capitals have been controlling so far in the season and again ignited off a bang in the 2nd half with a crushing win over Hyderabad. They have a solid squad but the return of Shreyas Iyer has just made them extra thick in all departments. Although the injury of Stoinis is a hindrance, they still have sufficient gas in the tank to take down any team. Rajasthan also won the last match but it won’t give them enough courage as it was more of Punjab’s loss than Rajasthan’s win. We expect the Delhi Capitals to win against Rajasthan Royals.
Today’s match prediction: Delhi Capitals to win the match.
