Rajasthan Royals vs Delhi Capitals – Match Predictions

Rajasthan Royals have a better bowling attack compared to Delhi Capitals. They also have a superior batting unit with most batters in great form. Expect the Royals to win this match at their second home.

Probable 6s

Rajasthan Royals boasts of a batting line-up of Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson, Shimron Hetmyer and Yashasvi Jaiswal. Delhi Capitals have David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, Prithvi Shaw and Rilee Rossouw but haven’t fired yet. RR have hammered 18 sixes in two games whereas DC have struck only eight.

Our prediction: Rajasthan Royals to hit most sixes in the match at 9/10 (1.90).

Probable Wickets

Anrich Nortje arrived a bit late to the IPL 2023 but made an immediate impact, picking two wickets in Delhi’s previous game. Back Nortje to be Delhi Capitals’ top wicket-taker at 9/4 (3.25). Yuzvendra Chahal has snared five wickets from two games and can be a good bet to be the top bowler for Rajasthan Royals at 9/4 (3.25).

Our prediction: Anrich Nortje to be Delhi Capitals’ highest wicket-taker at 9/4 (3.25).

Man of the Match

Jos Buttler blasted 54 off just 22 deliveries in the opening game and looked good in the second. Buttler is a top candidate to be the player of the match at 5/1 (6.00). Among others, Sanju Samson, Yuzvendra Chahal, Mitchell Marsh and Anrich Nortje are good betting options.

Our prediction: Jos Buttler to be the Man of the Match at 5/1 (6.00).

Rajasthan Royals vs Delhi Capitals Preview

Delhi Capitals and Rajasthan Royals both are coming off a loss and will be hoping for a better outing. Here’s a look at both sides ahead of their clash on Saturday.

Rajasthan Royals

Last year’s runners-up began their 2023 campaign with a comprehensive 72-run win over Sunrisers Hyderabad. But they fell short of the target by five runs in their second game versus Punjab Kings.

The Royals have most of their batters in terrific form but Devdutt Padikkal has been disappointing. He could lose his spot to Dhruv Jurel while KM Asif could also be replaced by Sandeep Sharma.

Predicted XI: Jos Buttler (wk), Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson (c), Shimron Hetmyer, Riyan Parag, Dhruv Jurel, Jason Holder, Ravichandran Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Trent Boult, Sandeep Sharma.

Delhi Capitals

Delhi Capitals haven’t had a great start to the season, losing both matches. They were hammered by 50 runs in the first game at the hands of Lucknow Super Giants before Gujarat Titans defeated them by six wickets.

Sarfaraz Khan hasn’t looked convincing and could lose his spot. Mukesh Kumar’s place is also under threat with Chetan Sakariya sitting on the bench. The bowling unit heavily relies on Anrich Nortje.

Predicted XI: David Warner (c), Prithvi Shaw, Mitch Marsh, Manish Pandey, Abhishek Porel (wk), Rilee Rossouw, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Anrich Nortje, Khaleel Ahmed, Chetan Sakariya
