The 11th match of the 16th season of the Indian Premier League will be played between the Delhi Capitals and the Rajasthan Royals team at the Barsapora Stadium in Guwahati from 3:30 pm on Saturday. Both the teams will start playing after facing defeat in this match.
Rajasthan Royals vs Delhi Capitals, When Delhi Capitals, led by captain David Warner, take the field against Rajasthan Royals on Saturday, they will try to avoid a third consecutive defeat. Delhi had earlier lost against Gujarat Titans and Lucknow Supergiants.
The performance of the Delhi batsmen in the last two matches has been disappointing and remains a matter of concern for the team management. Opening batsman Prithvi Shaw and attacking batsman Sarfaraz Khan have not been able to do much and have been seen struggling in front of quality fast bowlers like Mark Wood and Alzarri Joseph. He will have to face the pace attack of fast bowlers Trent Boult, KM Asif and Jason Holder in the match against Rajasthan. However, playing against the spin duo of Ravichandran Ashwin and Yuzvendra Chahal will not be easy for the Delhi batsmen.
It is a matter of relief for Delhi that it is difficult for Rajasthan's aggressive batsman Jos Buttler to play in this match. He was injured while taking a catch in the last match. The finger of his left hand is injured. His fielding and batting have been difficult due to this injury. If Butler does not play, then Joe Root may get a chance in his place.
