  • Sanju Samson took the Player of the Match Award after hitting 82 not out from 52 balls at this venue in Match 4. The keeper-batter is our tip for Rajasthan Royals’ highest run scorer in this game. Trent Boult took 2/35 against Lucknow and the New Zealander is a strong choice for Rajasthan Royals’ top wicket taker against Delhi Capitals.
  • David Warner looked set for a big score when he was dismissed for 29 runs from 21 balls in Match 2. The Australian is a brilliant all-format player and we are backing him to be Delhi Capitals’ highest run scorer against Rajasthan Royals. Kuldeep Yadav continued his fine recent form with 2/20 against Punjab Kings and the wrist spinner is our pick for Delhi Capitals’ top wicket taker in this match.
  • After being dismissed with a strike-rate of 200 from his 12 ball innings in Match 4, we recommend selecting Yashasvi Jaiswal to hit the most sixes in this fixture.

Over 64% of games at this venue have been won by the team batting second in the IPL. Therefore, our prediction is that both teams will choose to field first if they win the toss ahead of this match.

Weather & Pitch Report


Although the forecast is for cloud cover throughout this game, it will also be warm with the temperature in the mid-30s. Humidity levels will be no higher than 30% with no rain to interrupt the match.

Pitch Report:

We saw a good batting track at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in the first IPL game of the season with over 360 runs scored. That said, there will be some assistance for the new ball pace bowlers so batters will need to take additional care during the Powerplay.

Team NEWS: 

RR Team News: 

Sanju Samson will be keen to maintain the momentum in the Rajasthan Royals camp after their opening game victory. No injuries were reported during the post game interviews, and with this match being played at the same venue, we are expecting to see the same XI against Delhi Capitals. 

DC Team News: 

Experienced right-arm pace bowler Ishant Sharma was only able to send down two overs in Match 2 before leaving the field with an injury and we do not expect him to be fit enough to play in this game. Rishabh Pant looked fully fit and full of energy on his return to the side.

Winning Chances: 

This will not be an easy game for Rajasthan Royals who can expect Delhi Capitals to put up a big fight as they look to avoid their second defeat in a row. Crucial to this game will be the top three for Rajasthan who all have the ability to win a game on their own. Against a team with Kuldeep Yadav in strong form and David Warner at the top of the order, we predict that Delhi Capitals will be competitive but we are backing Rajasthan Royals to win.

Rajasthan Royals to beat Delhi Capitals.

Rajasthan Royals a 90% chance to win this match 

Delhi Capitals have a 10% chance to win this match 

Key Players: 


Sanju Samson 

The captain scored three fours and six sixes in his unbeaten innings in Match 4. He has a fine record at this level and will be key in this game.

Yashasvi Jaiswal 

The left-handed opener reached 24 before he was dismissed against Lucknow Super Giants and he was hitting the ball just as cleanly as we saw during the Test series against England.

Trent Boult 

The left-arm pace bowler remains one of the most consistent IPL opening bowlers. He comes into this game after dismissing Quinton de Kock and Devdutt Padikkal from his first two overs in the last match.

Ravichandran Ashwin 

The bowling all-rounder got the crucial wicket of Marcus Stoinis halfway through the 18th over against Lucknow and he was accurate throughout.

RR Possible Impact Player Substitutes 

Nandre Burger, Rovman Powell, Tanush Kotian, Kuldeep Sen, Shubham Dubey 

Right-arm fast bowler Sen could be a useful addition to Rajasthan’s side in this game if they require an additional bowling option. If they require a batting impact player, we expect it to be the left-handed all-rounder Abid Mushtaq.


David Warner 

The experienced Australian opener has scored 12094 T20 runs across his career and looks likely to add plenty more in this IPL season.

Mitchell Marsh 

The batting all-rounder hit two fours and two sixes at the top of the order and we can expect a similarly attacking approach in this match.

Kuldeep Yadav 

The left-arm wrist spinner is a handy lower-order batter but showed his quality with the ball by dismissing Prabhsimran Singh and Jitesh Sharma in Match 2.

Khaleel Ahmed 

The 26 year old left-arm fast medium bowler will be looking to be more economical in this match but will be confident after taking two wickets in an over to begin the tournament.

DC Possible Impact Player Substitutes 

Jake Fraser-McGurk, Vicky Ostwal, Pravin Dubey, Mukesh Kumar 

Abishek Porel was subbed in during the defeat against Punjab Kings but impressed with the bat so we expect to see him in the starting XI for this game. Mukesh Kumar is likely to be called upon if additional bowling is required.

Team Forms: 

RR Team Form: 

Rajasthan Royals produced quality with both bat and ball in their opening game victory of the IPL 2024.

DC Team Form: 

Delhi Capitals produced 174 runs in their opening game without any player making 35+. More runs will be key if they are to be successful in this match.
