The high-flying Rajasthan Royals will face a variable Delhi Capitals in Match 34 of IPL 2022 at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. The Rajasthan Royals are in third place with four wins from six matches and the Delhi Capitals are in sixth, with three wins from six.

Following an outbreak of Covid 19 in the Capitals camp which has side-lined Aussie all-rounder Mitchell Marsh and New Zealander keeper batter Tim Seifert and seen other players and support staff test Covid positive, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) decided to change the venue of the match on Wednesday from the MCA stadium Pune to the Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai. In their 24 head-to-head matches in the Indian Premier League both teams have won on 12 occasions, though since 2019 the Capitals have won five of their six matches against the Royals.

Delhi Capitals Team Preview

Delhi have been one of the most consistent franchise teams in the last three seasons: runners-up in 2020 and third in 2019 and 2021. Under Rishabh Pant’s leadership they would love to go one further, and a run of victories would transform their lukewarm start this season into a serious challenge to achieve the glory of their maiden IPL title. Although the Capitals have not been at their best, they are handily placed in sixth place with three wins from six matches following a thumping victory against Punjab Kings with 9.3 overs remaining on Wednesday. They have the highest IPL net run rate (0.942).

Lack of middle-order batting support is noticeable, and the form of Rovman Powell and Lalit Yadav has been a concern. However, when your openers put on an 83 partnership and chase down their target of 119 with 9 wickets still remaining, as they did on Wednesday against the Kings, then middle-order form is not tested. The explosive batting of openers Prithvi Shaw and David Warner registered the highest IPL 2022 Powerplay total smashing an outstanding 81 against the Kings. Shaw and Warner look to be in fine form and this if the fourth consecutive 50 plus opening partnership between the Capitals openers.

When it comes to bowling, Kuldeep Yadav with 13 wickets in 6 starts, currently second in the IPL for most wickets, is the player for Delhi Capitals, supported by Khaleel Ahmed with 10 wickets from 5 games. The Aussie all-rounder Mitchell Marsh will miss his second game due to testing positive for Covid-19.

If you want to get closer to the action, why not try online cricket betting for the match today? The most common markets to wager on are top batsman and top bowler. Our IPL prediction for the first market would be Axar Patel, while for the second it would have to be Mustafizur Rahman (DC).

Rajasthan Royals Team Preview

Rajasthan Royals were the title winners in the very first season of IPL in 2008. However, they have not been able to repeat that success and have failed to qualify for the playoffs in the last three seasons. However, the Royals have been doing everything right this season, standing in third place with four wins and two defeats, and are already looking handily placed to improve on their 7th ,8th, and 7th place finishes over the last three years.

The Royals are flying high after the stellar performances of Orange Cap holder Jos Buttler and Purple Cap holder Yuzvendra Chahal in a close high-scoring thrilling victory against Kolkata Knight Riders by seven runs with 2 balls remaining. This was the Royals highest total of the season (217) and their highest Powerplay total (60/0). Buttler showed once again his marvellous stroke-play, scoring his second century of the season (103 off 61 balls). With 375 runs in six games Buttler is the best T20 batter in the world at present and has been an integral part of the Royals success.

Although their bowers leaked runs in their last game, the positive was Chahal’s 5-wicket return, including a hat-trick, and is well supported by Trent Boult and Prasidh Krishna. The Royals will be looking for more all-round bowling discipline against the power-packed Delhi Capitals batting line-up. Our IPL betting predictions are Buttler for top batsman and Chahal for top bowler.

Toss Prediction

We will continue with the same line of thought for our toss prediction. We feel quite confident that the captain to win the toss will choose to bat second. Although the number of teams managing to successfully defend their score are growing, we think it’s unlikely that a captain would want to take the risk of putting the squad in a slightly disadvantaged position batting first, for the sake of it.

Pitch Conditions

The Wankhede wicket is relatively flat and normally favours batting, but also offers some help to both the pacers and spinners. As it is a night match, there will be dew in the second innings. Currently, the average first innings score is lower in comparison to the other pitches at 158.2, with an average first innings winning score of 177.0. The average Powerplay score is lower than the death overs (43.5 compared to 61.1).

Our DC vs RR Betting Tips

Of course, we finish with our match prediction today. So, who is it that we predict will win? We would have to back the Rajasthan Royals in this instance. They will need replicate their emphatic top order performance, headed by Buttler, but also ensure that their middle order continues with the same momentum for maximum impact.
