With just three matches left for fifth-placed Delhi Capitals in the round robin stage and the gap between them and the fourth spot being of four points, they will have to be nearly flawless starting from this fixture, which sees them take on Rajasthan Royals at Dr DY Patil Sports Academy, Mumbai on May 11 (Wednesday). The match is to begin at 7:30pm IST.

Teams Status

Delhi Capitals

Delhi Capitals have had a bit of a stop start campaign so far, with one problem of another almost always bothering them. They most recently had to deal with a positive Covid diagnosis of an unnamed member that put their entire contingent through a new round of testing. The result was a 91-run defeat at the hands of Chennai Super Kings.

It was a failure on part of both their bowlers and batters and neither would be proud of their performance. Bowling first, Delhi got the first breakthrough in the 11th over by which time Chennai had raced to 111 and the stage was all set for a score in excess of 200.

With the bat, they lost early wickets, never recovered and never looked like going anywhere near the 209 they needed.

There is an outside chance that Prithvi Shaw, who has been out sick for Delhi for the last two games, could be back for this game.

Rajasthan Royals

Rajasthan Royals are third on the points table and look like the most likely side after the top two to qualify for the playoff.

They won their last game but that victory came after two straight defeats. The streak snapping win came at the expense of Punjab Kings in impressive fashion.

Set a target of 190, Rajasthan got there in the final over, primarily due to Yashasvi Jaisval’s 68 but also because of several whirlwind cameos.

Rajasthan’s stud with the ball has been Yuzvendra Chahal, who is the leading wicket taker of the tournament with 22 scalps to his name. He could be crucial at the death when Delhi’s Rovman Powell has been terrorising opposition bowlers of late.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip:Jos Buttler to score more than 28.5 runs @ 1.87

Jos Buttler is not amassing absurd runs anymore as he was doing earlier but he is still finding his runs. In his last 10 knocks, he has returned a single-digit score just once. When the last time he faced Delhi, he had smashed an outstanding 116 – his third century of the tournament. We expect more runs of him against a side he already knows well. The odds for this play have been sourced from Parimatch.

Tip: Rajasthan Royals to win @ 1.86

If we’re backing Buttler to find runs, how can we expect his side not to win? Whenever Buttler’s bat goes to work, he ends up giving his side such a flying start that the other team often does not even need to bother. Thus, we doubled down here and went with the Royals to post a win. The odds have been sourced from Paripesa.


Delhi and Rajasthan’s battles have historically been close, with Rajasthan leading the head-to-head 13-12. This opens up an opportunity for Delhi to draw level but we don’t think that’s going to happen just yet.
