RR vs DC Preview
Both teams are coming off impressive victories, and these wins should have provided a confidence boost to the respective sides. Rajasthan did look a different side with a change of guard as Smith took over the captaincy duties from Rahane and duly guided the team home. It is starting to become a bit obvious that Smith is still not back to his best, but he played the anchor role to perfection against Mumbai and guided the team through.
Delhi, on the other hand, was able to stage a fightback of sorts after an initial onslaught by Gayle and then win pretty comfortably. The turnaround was impressive because it showed the fight the youngsters had. They were able to crawl their way from a slightly precarious situation and are now one of the contenders to make it to the playoffs. The form of Shikhar Dhawan and Shreyas Iyer is a plus, but they would be slightly concerned with Rishabh Pant’s batting as he has been surprisingly subdued off late.
It’s a contest between the consistently underperforming vs the consistently outperforming teams and should make for excellent viewing.
Form Guide (WLWLL)
It might be a question hovering in the minds of the team management whether Rahane needs to be part of the playing eleven or is it about time they allowed Tripathi who looked in better form. It’s a question of preferring form over the class.
Rahane has been a proven performer for Rajasthan but hasn’t hit the mark this time around, and Rajasthan has suffered because of that. He was stripped of the captaincy and replaced by Steve Smith. Rajasthan might just look to give him another game before maybe putting a pin on it if it still doesn’t work out.
The player under the spotlight
Sanju Samson gives as much heartache to any cricket purist as Rohit Sharma used to at one time. The kid has everything. He’s gifted, he has time, he has power, and he hardly seems perturbed at the crease. But then, he’s just not consistent.
Just like last year Sanju scored a massive inning at the start of the tournament and has since fizzled out yet again. He’s got starts, and he’s looked comfortable, but the player with this talent and this skill set should be winning games for the team and not just getting starts.
Probable XI: Ajinkya Rahana, Sanju Samson, Steve Smith, Ben Stokes, Riyan Parag, Ashton Turner, Stuart Binny, Shreyas Gopal, Jofra Archer, Jaydev Unadkat, Dhawal Kulkarni
Form Guide (WLWWW)
Bringing back Colin Ingram was a right decision for the team, but there are still question marks on what Sherfane Rutherford brings to the table because he’s hardly batted or bowled in the limited opportunities that have been presented to him. Delhi might give him a longer rope considering how little chance he’s had to express himself.
The player under the spotlight
Rishabh Pant’s IPL journey this year has not been the best of tales for him as it has somewhat fizzled out ever since the outrageous 70 he scored against Mumbai Indians. Ever since he’s had a few innings here and there, but on the whole, he’s not even been close to his fluent best.
The pitch at Jaipur could prove to be a challenge for his free-flowing stroke-play, but it’s been a while since he made a sizable contribution and he would be looking forward to righting that wrong.
Probable XI: Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Rishabh Pant, Shreyas Iyer (c), Colin Munro, Rahul Tewatia, Chris Morris, Keemo Paul, Axar Patel, Kagiso Rabada, Ishant Sharma
The pitch is getting slower as the tournament has progressed and it was quite evident in the last game as well. A score around 160-170 is very competitive if you have a good bunch of bowlers in your team.

Rajasthan does seem to be a rejuvenated bunch right now, but they’re coming up against a team that has a great bunch of bowlers and has performed admirably this season. Even though Rajasthan has a fresher look to it our pick for this match is Delhi with its wealth of prodigious talent. Also, expect the total score to be around 320.
