In the crucial encounter, Delhi Capitals will look to get two points and place themselves at the top to get an extra advantage. While Rajasthan Royals will be extremely disappointed with their previous washed out match. So, they will be hoping to win this match to give them an outside chance to qualify for playoffs.

Team Analysis: Delhi Capitals

Delhi team has already qualified for playoffs. But still, they have to win their last match to finish among top 2 in points table. Delhi capitals included Trent Boult in place of their star bowler, Kagiso Rabada (comma) who has been ruled out from the tournament due to injury. In the absence of Rabada, they lost to Chennai by a huge margin. Despite the loss, the team is expected to play with the same playing XI. 

Team Analysis: Rajasthan Royals 

Talking about Rajasthan Royals, Steve Smith will not be available for the match as he has returned to his nation for World Cup preparations. In his absence, Ajinkya Rahane will once again lead the team and Aston Turner might replace Steve Smith. Ish Sodhi might replace Mahipal Lomror. No other changes are expected other than this.
