The seventh match of the IPL will see Rajasthan Royals taking on Delhi Capitals at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on 15th April.

The match between the two is scheduled to start at 07:30 PM IST. Star Sports network will broadcast the match on TV, and the live streaming of the game will also be available on Disney+ Hotstar and Jio TV app.

Preview: Rajasthan Royals vs Delhi Capitals, 7th Match, IPL

Despite having some good performances in the 13th IPL edition, Rajasthan Royals finished at the bottom of the points table. Now, under the captaincy of Sanju Samson, it will be interesting to see whether they’re able to beat the odds. Although RR doesn’t have a star-studded lineup like other franchises, they do have players who can single-handedly alter the course of the game. RR’s batting will largely be dependent on Jos Buttler and Sanju Samson, while Ben Stokes will be keen to contribute with both the bat and the ball. Along with Riyan Parag and Rahul Tewatia, who were the discovery for the Jaipur-based franchise in IPL 2020, Rajasthan has included Shivam Dube and Chris Morris to add more depth to their lineup.

Delhi Capitals, on the other hand, have been a team on the up. With a third-place finish in IPL 2019, DC went on to make their maiden final appearance in IPL 2020, where they were defeated by Mumbai Indians. DC has a new skipper in Rishabh Pant this time, with the wicket-keeper batsman taking over the captaincy duty after Shreyas Iyer’s injury. It will be interesting to see how well Pant fares as a captain, and will the new responsibility have an impact on his aggressive batting. With a well-balanced lineup, Pant will surely benefit from the experience of star players in the squad.

Pitch Report
