Rajasthan Royals vs Delhi Capitals, DC Playing 11 vs RR (Predicted), IPL 2022, Match 58, RR vs DC. Delhi Capitals face a massive challenge in the 58th game of the ongoing Indian Premier League 2022 on 11th May 2022 at 7:30 pm in Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy, Mumbai, India.
They come here with a big defeat against the Chennai Super Kings and must win this game to keep their hopes for a playoff berth alive. The Rajasthan Royals on the other hand did well to win the last game against the Punjab Kings.
Delhi Capitals have been inconsistent, and their bowling attack has been a major concern for the side. Their new ball attack has looked ineffective, and the side can least afford so against the strong batting line-up that the Rajasthan Royals have. Playing under pressure the Delhi Capitals would have to rise to the occasion in their most important game of the season.
Rishabh Pant’s side finds itself in a spot of bother after their 91-run loss against the Chennai Super Kings in the last game. They must win this game to keep their hopes alive for a berth in the next round. Their bowling attack has struggled in most of the games the side has played, and Rishabh Pant would like them to rise to the challenge and restore confidence with a win in this game.
Opener Prithvi Shaw’s absence is a major problem for the team and the opening pair of David Warner and Srikar Bharat need to set up a strong platform at the top. Rishabh Pant, Mitchell Marsh, and Rovman Powell have been inconsistent adding to the side’s problems. The likes of all-rounders Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Lalit Yadav, and Ripal Patel will need to do the big-hitting down the order for the side to win.
Pace all-rounder Shardul Thakur has had a poor season and the side would need him to deliver the goods opening the bowling with left-arm pacer Khaleel Ahmed. Protea pacer Anrich Nortje must make good use of his pace in this game and keep the Royals’ batsmen under check.
Spin all-rounder Axar Patel, chinaman spinner Kuldeep Yadav, and pace all-rounder Mitchell Marsh are experienced players and the side would have huge expectations from them.

David Warner commenced his IPL journey at the Delhi franchise in 2009 and after 13 years, with a bag full of experience, loads of runs under his belt, and having won the IPL title with Sunrisers Hyderabad, he returns to represent the team in 2022.
David Warner, who is the fourth-highest run-getter in the history of the IPL is one of the most destructive openers across formats and he will be keen to make a mark right from the word go for DC. David Warner is already Delhi Capitals’ highest run-getter as he had already scored 375 runs in only 9 games averaging 53.57 at an impressive strike rate of 156.9.
