DC vs RR Dream11 Team Prediction of IPL 2019: Preview | Kagiso Rabada ruled out
Delhi Capitals and Rajasthan Royals will collide at Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in Delhi to play their last league match. We will provide Dream11 Team Prediction, Preview and Probable Playing XI for the DC vs RR match.
Delhi Capitals have already qualified to playoffs and are third on the points table with eight wins in thirteen matches. In the last match, They lost to Chennai Super Kings by a big margin of 80 runs. Bowling first, DC bowlers failed to restrict Chennai resulting in an above par target of 180. J Suchith bowled well for Delhi taking two crucial scalps. Chasing the target, Delhi batsmen failed in front of Chennai spinners and MSD and collapsed on just 99 runs. Shreyas Iyer was the only positive scoring 44 runs in losing cause for his team. Delhi will be further damaged due to injury of Rabada but will hope to regain lost momentum and target spot among two teams by defeating Royals tomorrow.
After initial losses, Rajasthan Royals have found some form and are fifth on the points table with five wins and seven losses. They have very slim chances of qualification and will put their best effort in last league match. Their last match against RCB was washed out by rain. In the five over the match, Shreyas Gopal demolished RCB batting order taking a crucial hat-trick and was supported by Oshane Thomas, Parag and Unadkat to restrict Bangalore at 62 runs. Sanju Samson and Livingstone came strong in the chase and were on the path to victory with former scoring 28* runs in 13 balls but unluckily match ended before result due to rain. Rajasthan Royals will be determined to continue the momentum ahead and defeat Delhi to keep their minimal chances of qualification alive.
