DC vs RR fantasy

Delhi Capitals (DC) will take on Rajasthan Royals (RR) in match 30 of IPL 2020 at the Dubai International Stadium – here’s all you need to know before making your Dream11 fantasy team for the DC vs RR game.

Dream11 IPL 2020: DC vs RR preview

We’ve moved into the second half of IPL 2020, where teams play each other for the second time in the tournament. Less than a week after their Sharjah duel, where Delhi Capitals (DC) eased to a 46 runs, they will take on a refreshed Rajasthan Royals (RR) who are coming off an incredible win against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH).

Delhi Capitals (DC) lost the top spot in the IPL 2020 points table to Mumbai Indians after their loss, but the more worrying factor for them is the injury to wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant, which has forced an overhaul of their batting line-up. With Pant’s exclusion, they have drafted in Ajinkya Rahane to shore up their batting, but have been forced to leave out Shimron Hetmyer at the expense of wicketkeeper Alex Carey. Ishant Sharma’s injury-forced exit is another blow to the team, but they seem to have enough fast-bowling depth to make up for the loss.

For Rajasthan, the late charge from Rahul Tewatia and Riyan Parag helped them clinch two vital points, but the win could not mask the obvious fragility at the top of the order. The inclusion of Ben Stokes strengthens the batting significantly, but his surprise promotion to the openers slot was met with plenty of questions. The dwindling form of Sanju Samson, Steve Smith and Robin Uthappa is a worry as well. A win against Delhi Capitals (DC), right after their stunning chase against SRH, could be the perfect catalyst for a much-needed turnaround in form and fortunes.

Whether Ben Stokes will be pushed up to open again will be a matter of concern for IPL 2020 Dream11 fantasy players

Dream11 IPL 2020: DC vs RR pitch report

Teams have admitted the continuous use of the pitch in Dubai has slowed it down. So far in IPL 2020, the quicks seem to get ample assistance both off the surface and in the air in Dubai – conditions Jofra Archer and Kagiso Rabada will look to exploit.
