The Delhi Capitals team has been doing an excellent job in this season of IPL 2021. The team is led by the versatile Rishabh Pant. Their last match was an easy one for them where they beat Sunrisers Hyderabad by eight wickets. 

This season has seen one of the best opening pairs in the competition so far. The batting combination of Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw has been a delightful watch. Both the batsmen have been playing an impressive game, and it will be a delight to watch these two batting together again. 

On the other hand, the return of Shreyas Iyer has also boosted the middle-order as well as the confidence of the team. Axar Patel and Lalit Yadav make up the all-rounders of the group. Axar Patel was out for a few matches due to injury. It would be interesting to see how the players strategize their game to retain their position in the league. While on the bowling front, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortge, and Avesh Khan will be seen working together against the Rajasthan Royals team.

Will Rishabh Pant break the record?

There is a chance that Rishabh Pant can beat Virender Sehwag to become the highest run-scorer for the Delhi Capitals team in IPL history, giving fans all the more reasons to watch the game. Rishabh Pant might surpass Virender Sehwag as the leading run-scorer for the Delhi franchise in IPL history. He is only 56 runs short to be the leading run-scorer for Delhi Capitals in the IPL league. Will he, won’t he? Well, watch and find out! 

It will be a royal treat to watch the powerful DC playing 11 facing the Rajasthan Royals in this battle. What a fantastic performance it has been by the Delhi Capitals this season! Will Rajasthan Royals be able to halt their speeding train? Or will DC mark another win? This game sure promises to be an exciting one!
