With their playoffs berth sealed, Delhi Capitals will aim for a big win against Rajasthan Royals to enhance their chances for a second-place finish when the two teams clash in their final IPL 2019 league game on Saturday.
The Capitals are already sweating over key pacer Kagiso Rabada's fitness as the South African pacer missed a game first time this season against Chennai Super Kings due to a stiff back on Wednesday.
And in all likelihood, Delhi will not risk playing Rabada on Saturday, when they are sure to compete in the Play-offs for the first time in seven years.
A big win on Saturday will not only boost Delhi's morale after the 80-run hammering at the hands of CSK but it could also propel the side to the second position in the eight-team standings.
Delhi are currently sitting third with 16 points from 13 games, just behind Delhi Capitals (16 points) and table toppers CSK (18 points).
A win against Rajasthan will enhance Delhi's chances of featuring in Qualifier 1, giving them two shots at the May 12 final.
What to expect?
The track throughout the season has been slow in Delhi. But, there was some pace against RCB. However, it won't change much. The weather is going to be warm and there will be little or no dew.
