First Face-Off

Cricket prediction for Rajasthan Royals (RR) vs Delhi Capitals (DC), Indian Premier League 2023

Rajasthan Royals were the champions of the inaugural Indian Premier League and it was in that season only, that they faced the Delhi Capitals (then the Delhi Daredevils) for the first time. Rajasthan Royals emerged victorious on the last ball of the match because of the heroics of the legendary all-rounder Shane Watson. This match is still considered to be one of the closest matches of the 2008 Indian Premier League.

Previous IPL Results

Both the teams share a neck to neck record when it comes to facing each other in the IPL. Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Capitals have faced each other a total of 26 times and both the teams have won 13 matches each. This shows the level of equal rivalry that the teams have.

Pre-match Analysis

Both the teams will be looking to gain some momentum in the initial stages of the tournament.

Both the teams will be looking to gain some momentum in the initial stages of the tournament. While Rajasthan has looked like a better side on the field, Delhi Capitals have missed the services of their original captain Rishab Pant. It is going to be an interesting match as the players would be desperate for a win. 

Probable Best Batter of the Match

Looking at the amazing form and hitting ability, Rajasthan Royals’ Captain Sanju Samson can be the best batter in their match against the Delhi Capitals. Sanju has scored 97 runs in the first two games and has been the backbone of his team’s batting line-up.

Probable Best Bowler of the Match

The middle order of the Delhi Capitals has been underperforming this season and that is why the magical spin bowling of ace spinner Yuzvendra Chahal may turn out to be the best bowler of the match.

Match Details

Rajasthan Royals will be taking on the Delhi Capitals in the 11th Match of TATA Indian Premier League 2023 from the Barsapara Cricket Stadium, Guwahati on 8th April 2023. For the viewers, the match will be telecast live at 3:30 pm on Star Sports network on television and Jio Cinema on your mobile handset. 

Pitch Report

The Barsapara Stadium’s pitch has established itself as a batter’s haven. It primarily has a hard surface so the bounce can be trusted and batters can play their shots. The players have taken a beating all over the field, and the upcoming game can be anticipated to be no different. The captain who wins the toss may want to field first.

Today’s Match Prediction: Final Thoughts

The Rajasthan Royals and the Delhi Capitals are all set to meet in the 11th match of IPL 2023.

The Rajasthan Royals and the Delhi Capitals are all set to meet in the 11th match of IPL 2023. We have a lot to look forward to in the match! It is important for DC to start winning in the current tournament so that they don’t finally lose their chances of qualifying for the quarterfinals. For their part, RR have one win and one defeat so far in the tournament – a result that will also keep the team on their toes.

The already completed matches for Rajasthan Royals have been very close and have shown the strength of the team, so we consider them the favourites for today’s game. But the game promises to be a close one.
