IPL 2019, Match 40 – Rajasthan Royals vs Delhi Capitals – Toss Report
Rajasthan Royals will be keen to continue their fine start under new captain Steve Smith when they take on in-form Delhi Capitals. Rajasthan Royals beat Mumbai Indians in what was Smith’s first game as captain. With just 3 wins from nine games, Royals cannot afford to lose any more games if they are eyeing a playoff spot and will have to give their best against Delhi.
Delhi Capitals have done well so far this season and are well on course to progress ahead of the group stage. With 6 wins from 10 games, Delhi are currently third in the points table and another win will only take them closer to the playoffs. With Jos Buttler not available for Royals anymore, Delhi already have an advantage and they will look to make the most of it.

Delhi Capitals have won the toss and decided to bowl first against Rajasthan Royals at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium.
Here is what the captains said:
” We’re gonna bowl first. Majority of the sides have won chasing here, so we’re going by that. Our side likes chasing these days and that gives confidence for us. One change- Morris in for Lamichhane. ”
“Looks better than most of the surfaces we’ve seen here. I would have bowled first as well because we don’t know if dew will be a factor but well, have to bat first and bat well. We haven’t played as well as we would have liked here, or anywhere for that matter. Hopefully, we can take confidence from that and move forward. We’re unchanged!”
