Delhi Daredevils go into today’s game at Sardar Patel Stadium looking to end their five-match losing run.
Kevin Pietersen’s side are bottom of the Indian Premier League table and stand almost no chance of reaching the playoffs.
Conversely, Rajasthan Royals are sitting pretty in third place, having won six of their opening 10 games in IPL 7.
Both teams were last in action on Tuesday and both were defeated.
MS Dhoni hit the match-winning six as the Chennai Super Kings eclipsed Rajasthan’s total 148-8 with two balls and five wickets to spare.
Hours later, Delhi suffered a 16-run loss to the Royal Challengers Bangalore, thanks to an inspired performance from Yuvraj Singh, who produced an unbeaten knock of 68 off just 29 balls, hitting nine maximums in the process.
Delhi have a slight head-to-head edge over Rajasthan, having won four of their seven previous meetings.
The Royals came out on top the last time that these sides clashed, though, securing a seven-wicket win at the Feroz Shah Kotla earlier this month.
Prediction: Delhi have been pretty woeful this season, their fielding in particular. However, with such star power in their batting, one feels that it is only a matter of time before they put together a huge innings. Today could be the day and I reckon they will register a win against the odds.
