A win at home finally achieved after multiple losses, a confident Delhi Capitals will hope to keep the juggernaut rolling when they take on Rajasthan Royals in an away IPL encounter here on Monday.
Delhi have been doing better at away games rather than at their home ground but Saturday night they managed to reverse that at the Feroz Shah Kotla ground with a five-wicket win over Kings XI Punjab, helping them remain on third spot in the points table.
Rajasthan Royals also won their match here on Saturday by the same margin against a formidable Mumbai Indians as Steve Smith celebrated his return at the helm with a captain's innings.
With both teams rejuvenated after their respective victories, it will be an interesting battle for one-upmanship come Monday.
However, Rajasthan would be a bit more desperate than Delhi as they are languishing at the second last position in the points table with just three wins from nine outings.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
The picth gets slow as the match progresses and dew could also be a factor. It shouldn't be a high-scoring encounter but a competitive one.
PROBABLE PLAYING XIs:
Rajasthan Royals: Ajinkya Rahane, Sanju Samson (WK), Steven Smith (C), Ben Stokes, Riyan Parag, Ashton Tuner/Liam Livingstone, Stuart Binny, Jofra Archer, Shreyas Gopal, Dhawal Kulkarni, Jaydev Unadkat.
