DC vs RR Dream11 Match Preview
Delhi Capitals have been relentless this season and have won seven out of the nine matches and are currently at the top of the points table. They won the last match comfortably by eight wickets.
Shikhar Dhawan has started from where he left in the last season and gave an excellent start to the team, but Prithvi Shaw fell early. At No.3, Shreyas Iyer is back from the injury and played well but missed his fifty by just three runs. In the middle-order, Pant batted aggressively and finished the game.
The bowling unit is one of the best this season as they have performed consistently. The leading wicket-taker for DC, Avesh Khan, went wicketless in the last match. Kagiso Rabada is back in form as he picked up three wickets in the last match. Axar and Nortje managed to pick up two wickets each.

The openers, Evin Lewis and Jaiswal, performed brilliantly and provided an excellent start to the team. At No.3, skipper Sanju Samson has been in good form but couldn’t score much in the last match. This time, the middle-order looks good for RR with players like Livingstone and Lomror, but they lack the power hitters down the order.
