It is a day game so we will get to see a nice hot sunny day with no rain interruptions while the temperatures are expected to be in the range of 35 to 30 degrees. The humidity percentage will stay in the range of 27 to 45%. There will be a cloud cover during the whole game so we can expect a bit of swing early on from the pacers.
Barsapara Cricket Stadium got nice batting-friendly conditions as we have seen in the last game played here as well which Punjab Kings won in the end. The same conditions are expected for this RR vs DC Match 11 in which the team batting first will ideally like to score around 200 runs to have a good chance of defending on this good wicket with short boundaries.
RR vs DC Match 11 Probable Playing XIs
Rajasthan Royals in the previous game got pretty close to winning against Punjab, all thanks to their brilliant Impact Player Dhruv Jurel who made a nice case for himself to come in as an additional batter in the starting XI for this RR vs DC game. For this game, while bowling first they can bring in KM Asif for either Yashasvi Jaiswal or Devdutt Padikkal.
For Capitals, Sarfaraz Khan & Khaleel Ahmed are their go-to Impact Player options for both bat & bowl. This is a must-game for the Capitals as losing three games on trout would be a serious pressure cooker moment for both coaches & players.

RR vs DC Match 11 Dream11 Prediction
It’s an interesting RR vs DC Match 11 Dream11 fantasy team as we have two high-quality best-match winners in wicket-keepers who are very crucial for the Royals to beat the Capitals in this game. Butler in this year’s IPL is playing as a specialized batter as Sanju is the regular keeper for Rajasthan.
On paper, the Royals are a better team and have much better resources than the Capitals but David Warner holds the key for DC to create a big impact upfront to help Delhi register their first win of this season.
Have a look at our RR vs DC Match 11 Dream11 Team for Grand Leagues.
Wicket-Keepers – Jos Butler, Sanju Samson
Batsmen – David Warner (c), Yashasvi Jaiswal
All-rounders – Jason Holder, Mitchell Marsh, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin
Bowlers – Trent Boult, Yuzvendra Chahal (vc), Anrich Nortje
David Warner in both the games has had a good start and he has scored one half-century as well but for DC to win he may well have to convert these 30s and 50s to a big hundred and we are expecting a big performance from him in this game so he is our Dream11 fantasy captain while Chahal has been impressive with the ball in the last two games hence we made him our vice-captain for this match.
