DC vs RR: Rajasthan Royals (RR) Predicted Playing XI Against Delhi Capitals (DC)- IPL 2021 Match 36. Rajasthan Royals will play their second game of the UAE leg of IPL 2021 against table-toppers Delhi Capitals on Saturday. They are coming into the game on the back of a morale-boosting 2-run win against Punjab Kings.
A collective batting effort from the franchise helped them post a formidable 185-run total against Punjab. Yashasvi Jaiswal, Evin Lewis, Liam Livingstone and Mahipal Lomror made significant contributions to the total. The bowlers, however, didn’t bowl at great areas and offered a lot of freebies to KL Rahul and Co. There were a lot of dropped catches as well which RR definitely need to work on.
In spite of all that, Rajasthan Royals managed to win the game by 2 runs in the end. A heart-warming bowling performance in the last two overs by Muztafizur Rahman and Kartik Tyagi helped the team snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.
Ahead of the game against Delhi Capitals, here’s a look at their predicted playing XI.

1. Openers: Evin Lewis and Yashasvi Jaiswal
Roped in as a replacement for Jos Buttler in the squad for the second leg of IPL 2021, Evin Lewis was included in the playing XI in the very first game against Punjab Kings. The southpaw gave a great start to the side, scoring 36 runs off just 21 balls.
Lewis’s great form with the bat is likely to keep the team in good stead. His partner, Yashasvi Jaiswal also played a great knock of 49 runs off 36 deliveries, which was laced with 6 fours and 2 sixes.
