The DC vs RR IPL 2024 match will be played at the Arun Jaitley Stadium on Tuesday, May 7. The match starts at 7.30 pm IST with both teams playing after a long break. 

DC vs RR Team Analysis

Delhi Capitals 

The Capitals are placed sixth on the points table after five wins from 11 games. They now have four games remaining and need to win all their remaining games to keep themselves alive in the playoffs race They lost to KKR in the previous match at Eden Gardens.

DC have not been consistent as a unit which is why they have not been able to maximise on home conditions. They have played three games so far at home and won two. However, they face a situation now where they need to win all their remaining games wherever they play.

Rajasthan Royals 

The Royals have been the most consistent team in the tournament so far. They have been dominant against other teams and found a way to win. However, they lost their previous game to SRH but still are on 16 points. They have four games remaining and they get more than 20 points and solidify their position at the top of the table.

The Royals have a compact group of batters and bowlers and they have not made too many changes to their XI so far in the season. Their core group has been performing well. They will be without Jos Buttler in the playoffs as the England players were asked to return for T20 World Cup preparations which might put RR in trouble for the later stages of the tournament. 

DC vs RR Key Factors 

Pitch Conditions 

Scores of over 200 have been regularly posted at the venue.SRH posted 266 against DC while DC themselves posted 257 against Mumbai Indians a few days ago. So the ground and the conditions have heavily favored the batsmen. The small ground dimensions have played into the hands of the batters with almost no room for error for the bowlers.

Form and Fitness 

David Warner's hand injury is keeping the DC management worried. Scan reports said that he might be out of the game for almost two weeks. He missed the previous two games for DC. Ishant Sharma also missed the last two games with a stiff back. 

There are no injury concerns with the current squad for RR. Sandeep Sharma who missed a few games with injury also returned to the playing XI. 

Form-wise RR players are placed a lot better than the DC players. The absence of the senior players for DC is something that the Royals might take advantage of. 

Tactical Acumen

Rishabh Pant's call to bat first against KKR in the last match was criticized a lot. He read the conditions wrong at the Eden Gardens. Playing at home, he has a better understanding of the conditions. Sanju Samson has been very pinpoint as captain so far with his decision-making.

DC vs RR Match Prediction– Who Will Win Today IPL Match? IPL 2024 Match 56

On current form. RR are favorites to win the contest. However, Delhi Capitals does have the ability to bounce back and that is something they will be hoping for. 


Delhi Capitals find themselves in a must-win situation in their remaining games. They have to win all of them to stake a claim in the playoffs. Another win for RR will almost secure their playoff spot.
