Match: Rajasthan Royals v Dehli Capitals
Date: 15th April 2021
Time: 7.30 PM India
Stadium: Wankhede Stadium
Trends & Recent Form
Rajasthan Royals were hugely unfortunate to lose by a few runs to Punjab Kings. On another day the points wouldve been theirs. Some incredible batting by Samson will give cause for optimism, however DC will be a tough challenge.
The Capitals look in great shape. Some good bowling was backed up with a solid batting performance from key players. Shaw and Dhawan will take some stopping.

Match Prediction & Tips
Match Prediction: Delhi Capitals to win at 1.61*
Not huge odds but hardly surprising that DC are favourites to take this match. We agree that theyre most likely to be victorious.
- Pick 1: Shikar Darwan, total runs OVER 27.5, odds 1.83
Darwan was simply irresistable in his first match. He looks so comfortable with the bat. We can see him taking the game to DC.
- Pick 2: Chris Woakes top team bowler, odds 3.75
Woakes looked great last time out and was DC’s best bowler. At 3,75 we’ve backed him to continue his good form.
