Rajasthan Royals (RR) takes on Delhi Capitals (DC) in the reverse fixture of IPL 2024. They are on top of the points table with 16 points from 11 games and have looked like the most dominant team this season so far

They are heading into this game, after a narrow 1-run loss to SRH in their previous game. The loss has not derailed their campaign whatsoever and they are still at the top of the points table. 

They defeated Delhi Capitals earlier in the campaign and will fancy taking them on at this point with the side not playing well at the momentDelhi's loss to KKR in the last game highlighted tactical shortcomings something that the Royals might like to expose further.

The Royals have their batters playing well and their bowlers playing well as well. They have been an all-round team doing well in all aspects of the game and they would like to continue that going. Despite the loss, RR might well field the same team against DC.
