RR vs DC Fantasy Prediction: Rajasthan Royals vs Delhi Capitals – 9 October 2020 (Sharjah), A run-fest is assured considering the quality of the top-order of both teams.
Rajasthan Royals will take on Delhi Capitals in the league match of IPL 2020 aka Indian Premier League which will be played at the Sharjah International Stadium in Sharjah.
Rajasthan Royals won their initial two games in Sharjah and are now on a losing streak of three continuous games. They are back in Sharjah and this should give them a lot of confidence. Jos Buttler proved his form in the last game but the likes of Sanju Samson & Steve Smith are struggling at the moment. The bowling seems to be a weak point of the side. This is going to be a really important game for the Royals.
Delhi Capitals, on the other hand, have won four of their five games in the tournament so far. The bowlers of the Capitals are in a really good form whereas the batting is still not at their best but still, they are going really strong at the moment and all of their bases are covered. This side is playing with all guns blazing.
Pitch Report – This pitch is a batting paradise here in Sharjah with an average score of 220 runs in the first innings.

5 Must-Have Players in the Squad
Sanju Samson, Jos Buttler, Shreyas Iyer, Kagiso Rabada, and Rishabh Pant.
RR vs DC Team Wicket-Keeper
Jos Buttler (Price 10), Sanju Samson (Price 9.5), and Rishabh Pant (Price 9.5) will be the wicket-keepers of our squad. Buttler played a brilliant knock in the last game and proved his form with the bat. The track of Sharjah will definitely suit him as well whereas Samson has been in a really poor run of form but his record at this ground is absolutely fantastic and he can make the most out of it. Pant, on the other hand, has been playing really sensibly in the tournament and has been scoring at an average of 42.75. All three of them are brilliant T20 players.
RR vs DC Team Batsmen
Shreyas Iyer (Price 9.5) and Prithvi Shaw (Price 8.5) will be our batsmen from the Delhi Capitals. Iyer has been one of the most consistent players of the side and has been scoring at an average of 45.25. He played a brilliant knock in Sharjah last time around whereas Prithvi is hitting the ball really well and is in a wonderful form as an opener. Both of them are really good players of this side.
Steve Smith (Price 9.5) will be our batsman from the Rajasthan Royals. Smith has scored two half-centuries in the tournament so far but on the batting track of Sharjah. He would be eager to find his lost form at this ground again.
RR vs DC Team All-Rounders
Marcus Stoinis (Price 9) will be our all-rounder from the Delhi Capitals. Stoinis will be the best option available as he has been batting really well for the side and these ground dimensions will help him as well whereas he is a really good wicket-taker as well.
RR vs DC Team Bowlers
Kagiso Rabada (Price 9.5) and Anrich Nortje (Price 8) will be our bowlers from the Delhi Capitals. Rabada has been really good so far in this season of IPL. He has picked twelve wickets in the tournament and is the highest wicket-taker whereas Nortje has also picked seven wickets in his bowling and was brilliant on the batting-friendly Sharjah wicket as well. Both of these South African bowlers are bowling some lethal spells.
Tom Curran (Price 8.5) and Ankit Rajpoot (Price 8) will be our bowlers from the Rajasthan Royals. Both of them have not done something significant in the tournament but are decent players. Curran is a decent batsman and will bowl at the death whereas Ankit is also a wicket-taker.
Alternate Changes: Marcus Stoinis and Tom Curran out, Axar Patel and Jofra Archer In.
Match Prediction: Delhi Capitals will be the favourites to win this game.
