Winner Prediction

Both Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Capitals have strong squads but the momentum is with Rajasthan Royals due to their brilliant win in the previous game. Rajasthan Royals also defeated Delhi Capitals in their previous encounter of this season. 

Delhi Capitals were outplayed by CSK in their last game and it will be very difficult for them to regain their confidence. Rajasthan Royals are looking strong and well-balanced in all departments and their team combination is also better than DC. 

Hence, we predict that Rajasthan Royals will beat Delhi Capitals in match 58 of IPL 2022.
