DC had performed average in IPL 2022 till now. They had played a total of six matches with three wins to their name. They have lost three matches and are holding the sixth position on the points table. They had beaten Punjab Kings in their most recent match quite easily. On the other hand, Rajasthan Royals had been outstanding in IPL 2022 with four wins to their name. They have lost two matches and are situated at the third position on the table. Their most recent match against KKR was very interesting which they lost by the margin of just seven runs. Many pundits are going with DC in IPL predictions but our reports confirm that RR is going to win this match. This match will be very interesting as the bowling department of DC and the batting order of Rajasthan are in good form. We can say that this match will be between the bowlers of Delhi and the batters of RR.
DELHI CAPITALS REVIEWS
The bowling department of Delhi almost destroyed the batting order of PBKS in the most recent match. They sent the full team of Punjab back to the pavilion on a total of 115 runs on the last ball of the 20th over’s inning. Almost all the bowlers of DC performed well in the previous match. They had the best bowlers like Khaleel Ahmed, Lalit Yadav, Mustafizur Rahman, Kuldeep Yadav, and Axar Patel in the side. Axar Patel was the most successful bowler with two wickets to his name in four overs against just 10 runs. Khaleel Ahmed also picked two wickets while he was charged for 21 runs in four overs. Kuldeep Yadav and Lalit Yadav were the other bowlers who picked two wickets each in the previous match against PBKS. Mustafizur Rahman picked one wicket while Shardul Thakur was the only bowler who failed to pick any wicket. Will the bowling department of Delhi repeat the performance that they gave against Punjab? time will tell us but this is a good sign for Delhi that their key bowlers are back to good form.
Delhi is a team that is much stronger in batting than its bowling department. If the bowling department gives some good performance in any match, DC surely wins that match. We think that the bowlers of Delhi need to focus on the line and length and they can beat any team in IPL 2022. They also have some best bowlers on the bench strength which they can also test in the next matches. Shardul Thakur and David Warner are leading the batting order of DC professionally. They had provided a good opening start in most matches. They had a partnership of 83 runs for the first wicket in the previous match against Punjab. David Warner remained not out after scoring 60 runs with a strike rate of 200 as he faced 30 balls and smashed ten boundaries and one huge six. Prithvi Shaw also performed well with the bat in the previous match and scored 41 runs on 20 balls with the help of seven boundaries and one huge six. Sarfaraz Khan scored 12 runs and remained not out.
RAJASTHAN ROYALS REVIEWS
The most recent match of Rajasthan was a thriller against Kolkata which they won in the last over. They have picked some best batters from the auctions of IPL 2022 and are getting good results. Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson, Padikkal, Shomron Hetmyer, Riyan Parag, and Karun Nair are the key batters of RR. Jos Buttler was the most successful batter in the previous match against KKR who scored his first century in IPL 2022. He had 103 runs to his name on just 61 balls with the help of nine boundaries and five huge sixes. Sanju Samson also performed well and scored 38 runs on 19 balls. He smashed three boundaries and two huge sixes during his inning. Hetmyer remained not out after scoring 26 runs while Devdutt Padikkal had 24 runs to his name. The batting order of RR is strong and there is no issue with it but we have some concerns with the bowling department of Rajasthan.
The bowling department of Rajasthan is also strong which is led by Prasidh Krishna, Trent Boult, Obed McCoy, Ravichandran Ashwin, and Yuzvendra Chahal. We don’t think that they were good in the previous match against Kolkata. They defended the target of 218 runs but leaked a lot of runs. They were charged for 210 runs and sent the full team of KKR back to the pavilion in 19.4 overs. Yuzvendra Chahal was the bowler who almost destroyed the batting order of Kolkata. He picked five wickets and this was his first five-for in IPL. He also had a hat-trick in this match. He leaked 40 runs in four overs. Obed McCoy also performed well and picked two wickets. He was the other bowler who leaked a lot of runs. He was charged for 41 runs in four overs. Ravichandran Ashwin and Prasidh Krishna picked one wicket each while Trent Boult was the only bowler who failed to pick any wicket. He was the most expensive bowler as he leaked 48 runs in four overs.
