Rajasthan Royals vs Delhi Capitals Match 23 Preview & Prediction

A very interesting match coming up in IPL 2020, in-form Delhi Capitals will look to return to the top of the 2020 Indian Premier League by continuing their fine start to this season’s tournament against Rajasthan Royals. The Rajasthan Royals have lost their previous three matches and are under pressure. They started IPL 2020 with a bang in Sharjah and that is where they return for this match. Let’s see, will that be enough to cover up their flaws?

RR is going to take on the Delhi Capitals. This is a team that has four wins from five matches and seems to have most bases covered. Its squad depth has allowed it to get past injuries and niggles without a missed step. Can it win and retake the top spot from the Mumbai Indians?

Match:  23

Day:     Friday

Date:    9th October 2020

Venue:  Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah, UAE

Time:    7:30 PM (IST)

Pitch and Conditions:

The Sharjah wicket has favoured batting so far, particularly in the first innings. We have had a nice break in matches played at Sharjah. This will give the ground staff enough time to work on the pitch and provide a belter for this match. We already know that the boundaries are very short and so there are going to be sixes galore.

Only one inning has a score of less than 200 been scored there in the entire IPL 2020 edition so we expect at least 200 to be par for this match. Teams will want to chase because nothing seems enough at this venue.


The team that wins the toss is going to want to chase. RR recorded the highest-ever successful chase in IPL history at this venue and DC struggled to defend 227 in its last outing here! Both teams will back themselves to chase whatever the opposition gets.

RR vs DC Match Prediction:

We make our predictions after calculating each and every aspect of the match that is why we are the best tipper of IPL. We are going to have to stick with the Delhi Capitals in this match even though the threat posed by Butler and Samson is immense. The bowling attack of Rabada, Nortje, and Ashwin is going to be very tough to score against. DC has a batting at least as strong as RR and a bowling lineup that is far better. DC has four of its five matches in IPL 2020 while RR has lost its previous three. Both teams have a powerful and dangerous batting lineup. DC’s better bowling attack could be the difference between the two teams. For more and assured free IPL betting tips keep visiting our website throughout the IPL 2020. Back Delhi Capitals to win.
