Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Capitals will lock horns with each other in the 40th match of the ongoing Indian Premier League. Both these teams had won their respective previous matches. In fact, both of them went on to win their respective match by five wickets. Sportzwiki brings you the Match Preview, Prediction, Predicted XI, Weather, Pitch, Stats.

Consequently, both these teams will like to continue their good form going. Meanwhile, one more common factor in these two teams previous wins was that their respective captains, Steven Smith and Shreyas Iyer had played a key role in their win. Both of them had scored match-winning half-centuries and were awarded the Man of the match award.

Meanwhile, Rajasthan Royals were able to blossom under the new leadership of Steven Smith. The former Australian captain had led with aplomb and that transpired into his batting. Smith will like to continue his good form with the bat going as he will be the fulcrum of the batting order.

However, Royals will need to pull up their socks in their fielding department. Jofra Archer had fluffed three chances and he is Royals’ best fielder. Meanwhile, Archer had another fine day with the ball as he snared three wickets and conceded only 15 runs in his four overs quota.

Capitals have a good chance to make the last four.

On the other hand, Delhi Capitals have been in good form in the ongoing season. They have come up with a fine bowling performance, which has played a key role in their success. Consequently, they would like to tick the right boxes in their bowling department.

Furthermore, Shikhar Dhawan showed good form in the previous match against Kings XI Punjab. The southpaw batsman had scored a fine knock of 56 runs. Moreover, Shreyas Iyer scored an undefeated knock of 58 runs. Thus, they would like to continue their good form.

On the other hand, Prithvi Shaw was unfortunate to be run-out in the last match. Rishabh Pant once again played a rash shot when the situation demanded only 36 runs from 30 balls. Pant will need to play according to match situations and there is no point in playing a natural game like he did the other night against Punjab.

Moreover, Sandeep Lamichanne bowled a fine spell. The leg-spinner has impressed with his skills and once again was right on the money against Punjab. The prodigy spinner scalped three wickets and gave away 40 runs in his four overs quota.

Date and Venue: April 22, 2019, Sawai Man Singh Stadium.

Weather Conditions: It is going to be another hot day in Jaipur as the temperature is going to rise to 39-degree Celsius.

Pitch Report: The pitch will be on the slower side as there would be assistance for the spinners. Furthermore, the fast bowlers will like to roll their fingers over the ball.
