Rajasthan Royals will take on Delhi Capitals in the seventh match of IPL 2021 on Monday. Both teams have made a contrasting start to their IPL 2021 campaign. Delhi Capitals outclassed Chennai Super Kings in a high-scoring affair in their first game, while Rajasthan Royals fell short of 4 runs in their opening encounter against Punjab Kings.
Delhi Capitals Team Previw:
Delhi Capitals will come into the contest full of confidence. However, they still have some issues to ponder at. South African pacer, Anrich Nortje has been suspected as positive for Covid-19, and thus, he is likely to miss out in the second game for Delhi as well. Kagiso Rabada, though is set to return in the squad for undergoing mandatory quarantine. Among the Indian bowlers, Avesh Khan would be in the playing XI especially after his amazing out against CSK. He also took the wicket of CSK skipper MS Dhoni who got out on a duck.
Under the leadership of Rishabh Pant, Delhi have made a strong start in the tournament. They are coming into the contest on the back of a ruthless 7-wicket win against CSK. Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw put on a show against a clueless CSK bowling attack. The DC openers are likely to come out all guns blazing once again on a batting paradise at Wankhede Stadium. With Rishabh Pant, Shimron Hetmyer and Marcus Stoinis to follow, DC have a batting lineup that can take any opposition to the cleaners.
Rajasthan Royals Team Preview:
Ahead of their second game against DC, Rajasthan Royals have been deal with another massive blow as Ben Stokes have been ruled out of IPL 2021. Given that there is no like-for-like replacement for the English all-rounder, it’s going to be tough for Rajasthan in at least the next few games.
Senior players like Sanju Samson, Jos Buttler, and Chris Morris will have a lot of responsibility on their shoulder to play give their best shot ahead in the tournament. With Ben Stokes missing out, either Liam Livingstone or David Miller is likely to make into the playing eleven on Thursday.
