The 23rd match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 will be played on Friday in which the Rajasthan Capitals will face a tough challenge in form of the Delhi Capitals, who are looking in great rhythm.
The manner in which the Delhi team has performed in the current IPL season cannot be ranked less than spectacular. Delhi are ranked second in the points table after winning 4 of their opening 5 matches of the tournament.
In IPL 2020, Delhi has not only shown their class in the batting department but also they have also been exceptionally good in bowling and fielding, due to which it will not be easy for Rajasthan to get a win against one of the best team’s of the tournament.
Talking about Delhi’s batting, openers Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, skipper Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant and Marcus Stoinis are consistently scoring runs. Whenever the top order of Delhi failed to score runs in this tournament, the middle order and lower order, while handling the innings, helped the team score a respectable score.
On the other hand, the situation of Rajasthan Royals in the current IPL season is worrying. Rajasthan have played 5 matches so far, losing 3 of them. Rajasthan’s batting rests only on captain Steve Smith, Jos Buttler and Sanju Samson.
Samson has also not been able to score consistently after the first few good games. In Rajasthan Royals, a player who can handle the innings well in the middle order is missing.
Rajasthan’s bowling condition is worse than its batting. The bowling of the team is entirely dependent on Jofra Archer. Tom Curran has been seen supporting him and leg spinner Shreyas Gopal did well in the last match, but lacked consistency.
