Rajasthan Royals vs Delhi Capitals: Teams Performance in IPL 2024

You have entered into the most important session of this preview where we will be analysing the performances of Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Capitals in their first match of IPL 2024:

1. Rajasthan Royals (RR):

After securing a thumping victory against the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG), the Rajasthan Royals (RR) led by Sanju Samson will aim to triumph once again on their home ground. Especially, Sanju Samson led from the front by playing a captain’s knock of 82 runs from 52 balls (including 3 fours and 6 sixes). Additionally, Riyan Parag (43 runs from 29 balls- including 1 four and 3 sixes) and Dhruv Jurel (20 runs from 12 balls- including 1 four and 1 six) along with Sanju steered their team to a total of 193-4 in 20 overs.

Especially, the bowlers Ravichandran Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Sandeep Sharma, and Nandre Burger took each wicket along with Trent Boult (35-2 in 4 overs), thereby playing a major role in defending the total against the top batters of the LSG.

2. Delhi Capitals (DC):

On the other side, the Delhi Capitals (DC) led by Rishabh Pant started their IPL 2024 campaign with a 4-wicket loss against the Punjab Kings (PBKS). Particularly, the DC batters got off to a shaky start by losing wickets instantly. The situation could have been worse if Abhishek Porel hadn’t scored 25 runs in the last over. Mainly, Abhishek’s cameo of 32 runs from just 10 balls (including 4 fours and 2 sixes).

However, the absence of Anrich Nortje has resulted in a lack of intensity in DC’s bowling attack that led PBKS to chase the target with ease.
