Rajasthan Royals would be playing their next clash against Delhi Capitals on September 25, 2021, in the UAE leg of IPL. They had their first clash against PBKS and registered a thrilling two-run victory towards the end. Though Punjab looked in a clean spot, some tight bowling by Rajasthan towards the end saved the game for them,

They will play their next game against Delhi who are already looking in a great tone. Capitals are placed at 2nd position currently and would be adamant to make their run strong in the coming days. Therefore, Samson and his men will have to put up their best to push Rajasthan towards the top four-stage. In this light, let’s take a look at-

Rajasthan Royals Predicted Playing XI against DC

Lewis is the stylish opener of the West Indies and showed his skills clearly in RR’s first game against Punjab. He gave a steady start to the team and it was due to his 36 off 21 and Yashasvi Jaiswal’s 49 off 36 that RR were able to breach the 180-run mark. The same will be expected from them in the clash against Delhi as there will be fierce competition against them.

Middle Order (Sanju Samson and Liam Livingstone)

Sanju Samson is the skipper of the side and he was given the task from the shoulders of Steve Smith and hence, a lot is expected from his end. Though he couldn’t perform in the last game, Rajasthan will root for him to talk with the bat in order to bolster the middle order of their team.

Livingstone has just been in the phenomenal form off late with his national side and all are hoping if he can do the same for RR. However, his cameo of 25 runs in the last game was helpful for the team to put 185 on the board.

All-rounders (Mahipal Lomror, Riyan Parag, Rahul Tewatia, and Chris Morris)

The all-rounders’ department of Rajasthan is quite big and the bonus for them is anyone can step up on their given day to ace both the tasks for the team. Lomror played a stunning knock of 43 runs in the last game to strengthen RR’s innings in between.

Others couldn’t contribute much with the bat but will be expected in the next game for the same. Tewatia had his three overs where he just leaked 23 runs to get a wicket on his name. Morris being the most expensive buy of IPL ever will be hungry to do good for his team in the coming days. Parag would be seen in RR’s playing side as he can unlock his potentials anytime and has been of RR’s help in the past.

Words may fall short to talk of Kartik Tyagi’s contribution in Rajasthan’s last game against PBKS. He had to defend four runs in the last over and he took a wicket and saved the match for his team too. He was declared the player of the match for his impeccable efforts.

Though Sakariya remained costly in the last game, he can be back to his form soon and would be of great importance for RR. Rahman was absolutely economical in the last game, wicketless though, and will continue to do the same.
