Just four games are left in the league stages of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019. All of these four encounters will be played on the weekend with the duel between Delhi Capitals (DC) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) being the first. This match will be played at the Feroz Shah Kotla in Delhi. Since the pitch here has been unpredictable, no team is the favourite and the hosts haven’t done really well over here.
Moreover, they lost their previous game against the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) by a massive margin of 80 runs. Thus, they had to lose out on the top spot on the points table. At the moment, the Capitals stand third with a negative NRR. However, there is still an opportunity for them to barge into the top two by winning this match. They can play the first Qualifier given that a few results go their way.
The Rajasthan Royals, on the other hand, would feel unlucky with the way things have panned out in the last match against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). This match was washed out due to rain and one point had to shared between both the teams. Hence, the chances of RR getting into the playoffs look bleak. However, they’d not want to lose hope and will be looking forward to giving themselves the best possible chance by winning the upcoming game.
