The last time these two teams competed against each other in the 2020 IPL, DC prevailed, beating the Steve Smith-led unit by 46 runs. While DC longs for an encore of that feat, RR will try to settle the results and get the 1-1 draw this season.
DC is currently in the upper half of the points table with 10 points in its name. Meanwhile, RR is in seventh place in the table with six points against her name.
One of the best all-rounders of modern times played his first game for RR this season when the team faced Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). While he didn’t roll much and could only score 5 runs, the England international has proven time and again that he can turn the game upside down on his own.
While DC is aiming for the sixth win of the season, RR is aiming for the fourth win of the season. Here are the players who could be critical to their team’s fate in the game.
Kagiso Rabada With every passing game, Kagiso Rabada extends his lead in the wickets list. The 17-gate Speedster is currently the Purple Cap holder for the current season of the tournament. While he didn't end up on a winning side in DC's last game, Rabada has scored two goals and this time he will try to make up for his team and lead them to victory. Jofra Archer With 9 wickets against his name, Jofra Archer is RR's leading wicket-taker in the IPL 2020. The pacemaker with the right arm returned with the numbers 1/25 in RR's game against SRH and he will try to add more wickets to his list and that Set tone for RR versus DC. Anrich Nortje While Rabada led the DC bowling attack, Anrich Nortje was also notable with the ball. Nortje has played his penultimate game against MI under pressure and with his latest testimony, where he only conceded three runs to finish the match in the final. He will be vital to DC as they face Jos Buttler, Steve Smith, Ben Stokes and Sanju Samson. Shikhar Dhawan Shikhar Dhawan scored an unbeaten 69 in DC's last game against Mumbai Indians (MI) and the left-handed player will try to maintain his form and stick to the team's cause with bat in hand. Rahul Tewatia 189 runs, 5 wickets and two hits. Rahul Tewatia has impressed everyone with his performances including that against SRH where he scored 42 of 26 balls to take RR home. He'll be out again to make a mark.
