Delhi Capitals and Rajasthan Royals will square off in their first encounter against each other in the Indian Premier League 2022 and the battle between the two teams should be interesting given their past record against each other. Both Rishabh Pant and Sanju Samson will be hoping to win this game.

Delhi Capitals (DC) will take on Rajasthan Royals (RR) on Friday (April 22) in Match No. 34 of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Both teams have won their last game that they have played and will be extending their winning run and solidifying their position in the points table further in IPL 2022. Rajasthan Royals under Sanju Samson’s leadership are looking confident and will want to continue on their good form when they take DC.

Delhi Capitals skipper Rishabh Pant has not scored big runs just yet and with the kind of spin-dominant bowling attack that Rajasthan has, Pant who has dominated spinners since he made his debut in international cricket might relish the opportunity when his side plays against Rajasthan Royals.  

Yuzvendra Chahal and Jos Buttler have been the stars of the IPL so far and teams have found it difficult to strategise against them. Sanju Samson and Rajasthan Royals management will want these players to continue on their form as they make things much easier for their side when they are on song.

Form Guide

Rajasthan Royals have won four out of the six games that they have played and are currently at the third spot on the points table. Delhi Capitals, on the other hand, have had a mixed season with three wins and three losses and are at the 7th position. With this year’s IPL being a 10-team tournament, Delhi would want to win this game and go up on the points table. 

Head to Head

This is one of the most interesting statistics as both teams have played against each other 24 times and have won 12 games each. This match should be a cracker of a game.

Predicted XIs

Delhi Capitals: Prithvi Shaw, David Warner, Sarfaraz Khan, Rishabh Pant (captain), Rovman Powell, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Lalit Yadav, Khaleel Ahmad, Mustafizur Rehman.

Rajasthan Royals: Jos Buttler, Devdutt Padikkal, Sanju Samson, Shimron Hetmyer, Riyan Parag, Karun Nair, Ravichandran Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Prasidh Krishna, Trent Boult, Obed McCoy.

Best betting tip

Jos Buttler to score over 33.5 runs @ 1.83

Jos Buttler is in the form of his life in this year’s edition of the Indian Premier League and has scored two centuries in the tournament so far. He is the orange cap holder and when he walks out to bat against Delhi Capitals, everyone can expect some fireworks from the English batter once again. 

Match Prediction

RR will win this game against DC as they are slightly better balanced than their opponents. RR have a quality bowling ineup and a solid top four batters who can win them any match.
