Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Capitals will play the 58th match of IPL 2022 on Wednesday. The first league game between both teams ended in a controversial manner and it would be interesting to see how players approach this game. RR has enjoyed a dominant run in the tournament, thanks to Jos Buttler’s batting and Yuzvendra Chahal’s bowling. They are placed in the third position in the points table and a win might help them reach the second position.

DC have won 5 out of 11 matches and are placed in the 5th position in the points tally. They need to win the remaining 3 matches to have a chance to qualify for the playoffs. They lost the last game against Chennai Super Kings by 91 runs and would be looking to make a comeback.

Here are 3 players you can avoid in your fantasy teams for the RR vs DC game:

1. Ripal Patel

He has batted in the lower middle-order for DC in the last 2 games and has not been able to make a decent score. Ripal didn’t bat during his first game of the season. He could make only 6 runs off 3 deliveries in the second match. DC have a solid batting group in the top order and it would be difficult for Ripal to showcase his skills. Hence, you can avoid him in your fantasy team.

2. Srikar Bharat

Srikar Bharat became a household name last season after he hit a six off the last ball while playing for Royal Challengers Bangalore against Delhi Capitals. In the 2022 auction, DC fought a battle against Chennai Super Kings to have him in the squad. He got a chance to open the innings for DC in the last game against CSK and could make only 8 runs. Bharat will have to make way for Prithvi Shaw if he is fit.

3. Shimron Hetmyer

Shimron Hetmyer is one of the most versatile players in the tournament and has shown that he can score runs batting in any position. However, you can avoid him in your fantasy team because he has left the IPL to be with his wife, who gave birth to their first child on Tuesday.
