Delhi Capitals (DC) vs Rajasthan Royals (RR)

For all the unsuccessful seasons that Delhi Capitals have suffered throughout the Indian Premier League, they still don’t have a terrible record against any of the teams. Another such example is their record against Rajasthan Royals, the winners of the inaugural edition of the IPL, with a winning percentage of just slightly under 50%.

Delhi Capitals are coming into the new season off the back of a fairly successful season, especially when compared to the preceding 6 years. The team finally looked like coming together as a unit, after spending years in turmoil and suffering due to a lack of direction and planning on the management’s part. With better planning, consistent team selections and making smart investments in the auctions, DC finally looks like challenging for the league instead of just being the also-rans. With Shreyas Iyer at the helm and a fine mix of young and experienced players in the team, fans would be hoping that the team can build on their performance from last year and make it to the playoffs at the very least. One of the more interesting sub-plots of this DC vs RR match would be former RR skipper Ajinkya Rahane facing his old side, with Delhi’s blues on instead that of Rajasthan’s.

Speaking of Rajasthan Royals, it is probably one of the most disappointing stories of the tournament. The team started off in the IPL with a bang, putting in impressive team performance and winning the first edition in 2008 against all odds. However, things have just gotten worse from that point on, with RR failing to make it to the final even once and qualifying for the playoffs just 3 times in the following 9 seasons of their participation. With Steven Smith now the captain, and new management in place, fans would be hoping for a quick upturn in their fortunes.
