IPL 2018: DD vs RR Match preview: For survival, Delhi will face Inconsistent Rajasthan
Written by Abhishek Lohia

Delhi Daredevils will face Rajasthan Royals today at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium, New Delhi. It is very important for Delhi to win this game. They have only 4 points in 8 matches. To reach the playoff, they have to win all his remaining 6 matches. At the same time, Rajasthan Royals have 6 points from 8 matches, and the team would like to keep the playoffs run easy by winning this match. If Rajasthan loses the match, then they will have to win the remaining 5 matches. Ajinkya Rahane’s team has won the last seven games between Rajasthan and Delhi. Rajasthan Royals have won the last 3 matches between the two teams in Feroze Shah Kotla. Sunrisers Hyderabad had defeated Rajasthan in their last match. At the same time, Delhi lost the game against Chennai SuperKings.

If Delhi still has to stay in the competition, then its new captain Shreyas Iyer and explosive Rishabh Pant will have to take responsibility to give the team a bigger score for batting in a stormy manner against the Rajasthan Royals on the Ferozshah Kotla ground here on Wednesday. Apart from youngsters Rishabh Pant (306 runs) and Captain Shreyas Iyer (257), most of the batsmen struggled to struggle in eight matches so far. The sixth defeat in Delhi’s eight matches has made it difficult for him to reach the play-off. Experienced Colin Munro and Prithvi Shaw, will need to show big stroke in the game.

With Archer, Rajasthan Royals have ample options in the form of Ben Stokes, Krishnappa Gautham and Stuart Binny but despite the presence of New Zealand leg-spinner Ish Sodhi, spin bowling is a weak link for RR. For Rajasthan Royals, Sanju Samson (279 runs), Captain Ajinkya Rahane (225) and England’s Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler are looking in great touch in this season so far. Stokes and Buttler have scored more than 100+ runs, but in the top order, Sanju Samson has scored runs in a tone format.
