RR vs DC: RR is a win away from tightening their hold on a playoff spot while the Delhi Capitals are standing in a must-win position. Three wins take the Capitals to 16, giving them a strong shot. They have been inconsistent throughout the series with the Capitals not winning or losing games consistently this season.
The Rajasthan Royals have been very balanced through the season and their batting performance in the last game is enough to send shivers down any opposition. They chased down 190 with ease, displaying their batting strength nicely.

The weather is clear with slight cloud cover through the evening of the RR vs DC game.
The last two games have seen DY Patil defend scores by strong margins. The pitch is slow, and scoring quickly is tough, indicating that batting when the pressure is on is not too easy. With slowness in the surface, batting first is a better option.\
RR vs DC Predicted Playing XI
RR Playing XI
Jos Buttler, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson (capt, wk), Jimmy Neesham, Daryl Mitchell/Navdeep Saini, Riyan Parag, R Ashwin, Trent Boult, Prasidh Krishna, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Sen
DC Playing XI
KS Bharat, David Warner, 3 Mitchell Marsh, Rishabh Pant (capt & wk), Lalit Yadav, Rovman Powell, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Anrich Nortje, Khaleel Ahmed
- Shimron Hetmyer has left the bubble to go back home for the birth of his first child. He will be unavailable for at least two games and in his place RR may bring in Jimmy Neesham to strengthen both the batting and bowling
- DC is likely to remain unchanged despite the marign of defeat last game. Prithvi Shaw still remains unfit after getting a fever.

With Kuldeep Sen finishing the innings well Trent Boult is able to bowl more in his preferred phase of the game. He is a master with the new ball, can find swing with ease, and giving him extra overs upfront can put up a lot of pressure on the batters with his ability to pick up early wickets.
Rishabh Pant has been a touch watchful this season and is often dismissed while trying to shift games. He is consistently getting starts but has struggled to kick on to a big score and may do a better job if he looks to go back to the aggressive style that has worked for him over the last few seasons.
RR vs DC Match Tips
