Rajasthan Royals v Delhi Capitals – Match Preview

A return to Sharjah will be welcomed by Rajasthan. They made a fine start to the tournament with back-to-back wins at this venue but have failed to win since leaving for their last three fixtures.

However, Delhi look strong at the moment as highlighted by the comfortable success over RCB last time out.

The head-to-head record is an even one, however, with Royals and Capitals both winning three from the last six meetings.

Where: Sharjah Cricket Stadium

When: Friday, 9 October 2020

Start time: 14:00 GMT (19:30 IST)

Pitch conditions: We can again expect some more high-scoring matches given Sharjah’s small boundaries and flat track. Expect the team winning the toss to bat second due to the dew factor making it hard to defend.

Weather conditions: More hot weather and no chance of rain continues in the UAE. Temperatures are set to sit around 35 degrees for most of the day.

Rajasthan Royals v Delhi Capitals – Team News

The big news for the Royals is that England’s star all-rounder Ben Stokes is still missing due to self-isolating. He Should be available for the next fixture but this one has come too soon.

He has now returned to take part in the IPL after missing the start due to compassionate leave because of his ill father.

Robin Uthappa and Riyan Parag were dropped for the previous game with Yashasvi Jaiswal coming in to open with Jos Buttler.

He failed to fire meaning there will be more decisions to make for skipper Steve Smith. Tom Curran should keep his place for now with Stokes still unavailable.

Delhi are unlikely to make too many changes to their side but will have to manage without the injured Amit Mishra.

The spinner picked up a finger injury against KKR that has ruled him out of the rest of IPL 2020.

Axar Patel came in in the previous game and played an important role to help the side manage Mishra’s absence alongside Ravichandran Ashwin.

They could also look to an overseas option in Sandeep Lamichhane to also fill the void.

Rajasthan Royals v Delhi Capitals – Betting Tips and Prediction

Rajasthan’s previous form at this ground makes for a really intriguing clash as they meet the in-form side of the IPL.

Delhi have looked a strong, well-balanced unit and it would be no surprise to see them brush Rajasthan aside here. However, given the prices, the 2.2 about Royals could represent value if they adapt to their surrounding again.

There are plenty of other markets worth looking to bet on for this fixture too.

Back Buttler to Top Score for the Royals

Jos Buttler took a while to get going in the IPL this year but looks like he’s about to hit form again.

His 70 in defeat against Mumbai in the previous game indicates he’s starting to find his rhythm. While he struggled at this venue against KXIP, it should actually suit him now he’s in better nick.

His price of 3.5 with 22Bet looks appealing.

Sanju Samson really let loose in Sharjah in the previous games and he could be seen as a nice alternative at 4.5 with the same firm.

Sixes for Buttler and Samson

There is no doubt that this venue increases the chances of sixes being smashed. Buttler can take advantage of that but so can Sanju Samson.

Samson hit nine of them here against Chennai and another seven against KXIP. Backing them both to find the stands in this clash could be a fun and worthwhile play.

They are priced at 3.6 with 22Bet to get two sixes each, while three sixes each is at 7.0 with the same firm.

Stoinis to Fire Again for DC

Impressive power hitting from Marcus Stoinis took Bangalore apart in Delhi’s previous game. His destructive striking came at just the right time to hand control to his side.

When he’s in this sort of form it is hard not to want to back him to get more, especially given the dimensions at this venue.

The fact he is batting so far down the DC order is slightly offputting but should they lose early wickets then he could take advantage at a bigger price.

He can be backed at 8.0 with bet365 to top score for the Capitals. It’s a longshot bet but one that could pay well if he gets to the crease early enough.
