Sanju Samson’s team defeated the Punjab Kings in the previous game by a comfortable 6-wicket margin. With this victory, the team has improved their standing in the standings. In the end, they clinically chased down a significant score. Against a powerful batting line-up, Sampson wants his bowlers to get their lines correct. A win here would guarantee them a spot in the following round, which Sampson would like. Jos Buttler has been in excellent form in this game, and he will try to create a superb opening wicket combination with Yashasvi Jaiswal. Samson anchors the middle order, and in this game, he’ll look to form partnerships with Devdutt Padikkal and Shimron Hetmyer. They don’t have much firepower down the order, so Riyan Parag and Ravichandran Ashwin will have to perform to their full potential. Trent Boult and Prasidh Krishna, who haven’t been in the best form, must provide excellent stints with the new ball. As the Delhi Capitals have a superb batting line-up, Yuzvendra Chahal has been the best bowler for the team, and the team would like him to stop the flow of runs in the middle overs of Kuldeep Sen and Ashwin.
Top players to bet on- Devdutt Padikkal, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jos Buttler.
Rishabh Pant’s team finds themselves in trouble after a 91-run loss to the Chennai Super Kings in the previous game. They need to win this game to keep their prospects of advancing to the next round alive. Their bowling attack has suffered in most of the team’s fun, and Pant wants them to rise to the occasion and regain confidence by winning this game. The absence of Prithvi Shaw is a massive setback for the side, and the opening duo of David Warner and Srikar Bharat must establish a solid foundation at the top. Pant, Mitchell Marsh, and Rovman Powell are all big names, but their inconsistency has added to the team’s woes. For the team to win, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, and Ripal Patel will have to do the big-hitting down the order. Shardul Thakur has struggled this season, and the team will rely on him to open the bowling with Khaleel Ahmed. In this game, Anrich Nortje must effectively use his quickness to keep the Royals’ batters in check. Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, and Marsh are seasoned players in this situation, and the team will be looking to them to deliver.
Top players to bet on – Shardul Thakur, Anrich Nortje, David Warner.
Ravichandran Ashwin, Riyan Parag, Trent Boult, Kuldeep Sen, Prasidh Krishna, Yuzvendra Chahal, Sanju Samson, Jos Buttler, Devdutt Padikkal, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shimron Hetmyer.
Ripal Patel, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Khaleel Ahmed, Anrich Nortje, Rishabh Pant, David Warner, Srikar Bharat, Mitchell Marsh, Rovman Powell, Axar Patel.
