DC vs RR Preview

Shreyas Iyer-led Delhi Capitals (DC) are all set to take on Rajasthan Royals (RR) for the second time in Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020. Last time these two teams met at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah where the Delhi-based franchise registered a thumping victory by 46 runs. 

Coming to this clash, the two teams will lock horns on October 14 (Wednesday) from 7:30 PM (IST) onwards. The Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai will host the match number 30 of this tournament. 

Delhi Capitals (DC)

Delhi Capitals

Shreyas and co. have played like one of the best sides of this season with five wins in seven matches. They currently hold the second spot at the Points table with ten points in their kitty. Although the Capitals lost their last encounter against Mumbai Indians, they are still in brilliant shape.

DC suffered a big blow after losing Ishant Sharma and Rishabh Pant in the last week. The latter will be available after some days as he suffered from a grade 1 tear. They might continue to take the field with the same XI as the previous game.

Rajasthan Royals (RR)

Rajasthan Royals

With three wins in seven clashes, Rajasthan Royals hold the sixth spot at the Points. But they registered one of the best nail-biting finishes of this tournament in their last game against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Youngsters Rahul Tewatia and Riyan Parag clinched that game for their team from the jaws of defeat. 

Rajasthan may give a chance to Manan Vohra as the only likely change in this game for them. Robin Uthappa might have to miss out to make way for the 27-year old.
