Match Prediction and Analysis
Champions of IPL 2008, Rajasthan Royals are going to take over the Dehli Capitals in the 30th game of the current edition of IPL. This season is way better for Dehli Capitals than all the previous ones as they are standing second on the points table with a +1.038 NRR. Shreyas Iyer is doing a good job not only with the bat but as a captain too and that’s lead his team to the victory over Rajasthan Royals in the 23rd game of the tournament.
If we compare both teams in their head to head matches, both teams are quite balanced in the stats. Where RR had won 11 matches out of 21 against DC. This game will the pressure game for RR as they only have 3 wins while half of the tournament is gone.
As per my analytical thinking, DC will win this fight and will move on to the top of the points table. Let’s have a deep analysis of what is happening right to DC.
Eyes will be on many players as both teams have a number of big names that can play a vital role in claiming victory for their team. Sanju Samson and Jos Buttler are important names from RR, and they can bring RR back to the winning track. The Captain Shreyas Iyer and Fast Bowler Kagiso Rabada are key players of DC and they can help DC in winning the title this year for the first time in the history of IPL.
Although RR has a greater number of foreigner stars like Steve Smith (C), Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, and Jofra Archer, DC is clearly dominating, and it is quite hard for RR to take revenge of their first defeat. David Miller is also the part of RR squad and one of the most expensive players of this IPL edition. He is still struggling to make a position in playing 11 of RR in the presence of more experienced players. Rumors are flying about the mid-season transfer of David Miller to RCB.
Kagiso Rabada, the most successful bowler of the IPL 2020, will also be in action against RR, and the victory of DC is also relying on his performance.
Another big game in Dubai international cricket stadium and stats still in the right of choosing to bowl after winning the toss. There is no pattern in the post toss decision of both teams when we look into their previous games. So, it will be interesting what toss winning captain will choose, and either his decision is beneficial or not.
A number of matches are already played on this pitch and the weather is also supporting the team playing second.
Dubai International Cricket Stadium is the venue for this match. Almost 80 matches have been played on this venue and 3 out of every 5 matches are won by the chasing team because the average first inning score is just 152 which seems easy in T20 cricket. Regardless of the stats, both teams have the potential to post 190 plus score while playing first and this is the only way to win a match.
Our Favorite Bets
- DC Will Win
Dehli Capitals are very excited to win this game and will reclaim the first position on the points table. Although it will not be easy for DC to win against a team have a number of big names, they can do that as they did first in the 23rd game of the tournament. Where they won by 46 runs by scoring 184 in the first innings in Sharjah Cricket Stadium.
- Buttler Will Score More Than 20
Jos Buttler is no doubt one of the best players in this format of cricket. He has scored 146 runs in 6 games with an average of more than 24. So, it seems like this the best for you to take a big advantage of this hard hitter who can score more than that as he did against Mumbai Indians where he made 70 on just 44 balls.
- Kagiso Rabada Will Take More Than One Wicket
There is nothing wrong with that if you are expecting more than one wicket from a leading wicket-taker bowler. He has made 17 players go back to the pavilion in his just 7 games of this season. So, bet high on this South African fast bowler and win big.
