Another day, another game in the Indian Premier League 2021. Two teams arrive in this game on the back of contrasting results. The Delhi Capitals(DC) get ready to face the former IPL winners Rajasthan Royals(RR) in the Dream11 action of IPL.
Talking about Delhi, they thumped Chennai Super Kings in their opening match. The team was without their 2 main speedsters, Rabada and Nortje but they did pretty well to keep the CSK scoring rate under check.
On the other side of the pitch are Rajasthan Royals, who have been hit by the worst possible news. Their star all-rounder Ben Strokes has been ruled out of the entire season due to an injury. However, RR would be hoping that the men in form Sanju Samson, who almost pulled his side over the line against the Punjab Kings, will continue the game from where he left in the last innings.
It would be interesting to see if RR can bounce back early in the competition or DC would be able to continue on their winning run.
