DC has been the most formidable unit in IPL 2020 so far and the results have proven the balance in their side. The batting is firing – Prithvi Shaw has made three significant contributions which have resulted in three wins for the Capitals. Shreyas Iyer is their leading run-scorer while Rishabh Pant, though not at his best, has threatened to be destructive. Shikhar Dhawan continues to play the role of the accumulator at the top though the IPL veteran would be looking for a big contribution.
For Rajasthan Royals, the loss in form of Sanju Samson and the lack of support for Jos Buttler in their game against Mumbai Indians are key areas of discussion for Steve Smith and his team. Although Rajasthan Royals have an 11-9 head-to-head record against Delhi Capitals, on current form, Delhi Capitals are favorites heading into the match.
