Delhi Capitals’ bowling line-up did a decent job especially in the absence of Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje. DC also came up with a brilliant batting performance as Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan batted at the top of their game. Thus, DC came up with a dominating batting performance.
Rajasthan Royals looked at sea with the ball against the Punjab Kings and conceded 221 runs on the featherbed of Wankhede. However, Sanju Samson was the standout batsman as he lit the IPL on fire with his piece de resistance knock of 119 runs off just 63 balls.
Head to Head: Overall matches – 22, Won by DC – 11, Won by RR – 11.
Both the teams have won the equal number of matches in the head-to-head battle.

Sanju Samson, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, and Chris Morris will hold the key for RR.
Match Prediction: Delhi Capitals will begin the contest as favourites as they have a more balanced squad.
Stats: Ajinkya Rahane had scored most runs for RR vs DC but he represents Delhi now. Amit Mishra is the highest wicket-taker between RR and DC matches.
