Delhi Capitals Review

Delhi Capitals review

The team performed superior in the previous year too, but because of some poor performance against the champion, Mumbai Indians, they could not conquer the tournament last year. However, this season they are not going to replicate the same poor performance against any team as they did in 2020. The batting department is full of Indian fire-power like Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Rishabh Pant, and the skipper himself. Having power hitters like Marcus Stoinis and Shimron Hetmeyer, they can decimate any bowling combination. Their bowling department also looks quite stronger as it is led by Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje. Ravi Ashwin and Amit Mishra will also share their experience to make the team in this game.

Rajasthan Royals Review

Rajasthan Royals review

After their first defeat of this season, Royals will be looking forward to bouncing back quite strongly. How Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes take the team as the winner of this game, will be an interesting move. If we look at their team, they are lacking some firepower to give a boost in their scoreboard. However, their top order is all set to demolish in the second game led by skipper Samson, Buttler, and Ben Stokes. Will the middle order be another concern in this match too? And how they sort-out this issue will be quite interesting to see. Their bowling looks solid as they have Jofra Archer and Chris Morris as their prime bowlers. Shreyas Gopal and Sudeep Tyagi can also snatch the attention of spectators with their good bowling.
