ACCORDING TO OUR REPORT
TOSS WINNEER – DELHI CAPITALS
MATCH WINNER – RAJESTHAN
So far, the IPL 2021 has produced some thrilling matches, and the fact that teams are playing at neutral venues has presented them with some interesting challenges. At the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, two teams that we feel are well-suited to playing in high-scoring situations will face off (the highest-scoring venue in the IPL).
In their match against Punjab Kings, Rajasthan Royals came close to chasing down 221 runs, stopping just 4 runs short. The Delhi Capitals easily chased down a modest total against CSK, demonstrating why they are considered one of the favourites to win the IPL in 2021.
Which of these two will emerge victorious?
The IPL 2021 match between Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Capitals will take place at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on April 15, 2021.
RR VS DC TOSS PREDICTION
The side that wins the toss would prefer to bat first. There’s no doubt about it, as Wankhede is a notoriously tough land to defend.
Ben Stokes has been ruled out of the IPL 2021 due to a fractured finger, which has dealt a major blow to Rajasthan Royals’ campaign. Jofra Archer has already been ruled out, leaving RR without two of their best players.
That means either of Liam Livingstone or David Miller will have a chance. We believe RR will go with David Miller, but we would like to see Liam Livingstone play. Livingstone not only has the unique potential to smash sixes from the first pitch, but he can even spin a few overs if necessary.
The previous match’s batting performance was largely due to Sanju Samson. He scored his third IPL century, but his squad was unable to get over the finish line in the final. Nonetheless, his current form bodes well for RR in upcoming matches.
Jos Buttler will play a key role in the upcoming matches, and he will almost certainly return to his favoured opening spot. In comparison to a team like Delhi Capitals, RR’s batting seems to be a little lean at the moment.
Chetan Sakariya had a strong performance in the previous match, but RR’s bowlers were all costly. Mustafizur Rahman, Shreyas Gopal, Chris Morris, and the rest of the team were not at their best and would need to change in the next match.
The Delhi Capitals’ first match was played without two of their top bowlers, and the team’s balance seemed to be off. Nonetheless, they cruised to victory in the contest, which is a huge plus for them.
We anticipate that Anrich Nortje and Kagiso Rabada will be available and will return to the team immediately. As a result, Chris Woakes and Tom Curran will be unavailable. Nortje and Rabada were outstanding for DC last season, and they would relish the opportunity to start at the Wankhede, where there is some bounce.
DC’s batting order is still unbalanced. If Ajinkya Rahane isn’t opening the batting, he isn’t even a part of the squad. Furthermore, the batting order is just up to number six, and the team loses a powerful striker at the end of the inning.
As a result, DC is extremely susceptible to early wickets and could collapse if a bowler gets on top of them. We’d love to have Steve Smith join the squad, but he’d almost certainly have to leave Shimron Hetmyer behind.
DC is the favourite for this match due to a good start and a strong team, but they still have a lot of questions to answer.
