The Delhi Capitals are struggling. Two games in and two losses leave them in some trouble. Rajasthan on the other side came pretty close in a tall chase earlier and will be pretty happy with how their batting has gone. They do have a slight injury concern though with Jos Buttler’s status uncertain after hurting his finger while taking a catch in the previous game.

RR vs DC Key Players
Axar Patel has been showing promising signs with the bat and is doing a fine job lower down the order. His bowling has not been used to its full potential though, as both his skills are yet to be accessed fully by Delhi Capitals.
With three centuries and over 800 runs last season, Jos Buttler was in a league of his own. His form remains solid and the distance he goes this season will be interesting to see, given how he was nearly unstoppable with his batting last season.
