Delhi Capitals is a franchise that hasn’t managed to get its hands on the coveted trophy in the Indian Premier League since its inception. Rajasthan Royals won the inaugural IPL season but since then have seen pretty mediocre performances. The rivalry between these two teams, however, has been pretty intense over the years and makes DC vs RR prediction an interesting one.

DC have been on a steady rise in recent years while RR have struggled for an extended period. Ahead of the IPL 2022, Delhi Capitals had to break up their well-constructed squad from the 2018-21 cycle with a mega auction in play. They opted to retain Rishabh Pant, Prithvi Shaw, Anrich Nortje and Axar Patel in the retention window.

DC had a fairly decent auction where they packed the side with some terrific picks in David Warner, Mitchell Marsh and Rovman Powell in the batting department. Although it did come at the cost of their bowling attack.

Rajasthan Royals had to let go of Jofra Archer and Ben Stokes for various reasons as they opted to retain Sanju Samson, Jos Buttler and Yashasvi Jaiswal. Overall, the Capitals seem to have a stronger unit and the RR vs DC prediction is likely to incline towards them.

RR vs DC Match Prediction

When it comes to the overall record between DC and RR, there’s absolutely nothing to separate the two sides. They have competed against each other in 24 matches, where both the teams have claimed 12 games each.

In IPL 2022, the two teams are placed in the same group and will play each other twice in the league phase. The other teams in the same group are Mumbai Indians, Kolkata Knight Riders and Lucknow Super Giants.

As such, the DC vs RR matches will be crucial for both teams. We will go into some further details and pick up some clues to determine which team is likely to have an advantage in the RR vs DC match prediction.

Delhi Capitals had a good outing in the 2022 IPL auction, bringing in some big names for the upcoming seasons despite letting go of a core of players that involves Shreyas Iyer, Shikhar Dhawan and Kagiso Rabada among others. Although their bowling unit looks weak, the batting line-up should propel them.

RR, which will hope to end its tussle with bottom-ranked teams like Punjab Kings, bought back their young star Riyan Parag in the auction while also adding some quality batters such as Shimron Hetmyer and Rassie van der Dussen.

Picking Devdutt Padikkal, despite his potential, proved to be a big blunder for them. RR did well to get Ravichandran Ashwin and Yuzvendra Chahal.

As far as the IPL 2022 is concerned, DC have assembled a heavy batting unit with David Warner, Mitchell Marsh and Rovman Powell, who sort of replaces Marcus Stoinis, complementing Prithvi Shaw and Rishabh Pant well.

Their bowling attack of Anrich Nortje, Khaleel Ahmed, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav and Chetan Sakariya doesn’t inspire confidence. While Shikhar Dhawan, Kagiso Rabada and Shreyas Iyer, big guns for them before, are gone, RR vs DC match prediction should still favour DC.

Delhi Capitals vs Rajasthan Royals, IPL 2021.

RR have several impact performers in their batting unit such as Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson, Shimron Hetmyer and Yashasvi Jaiswal. Devdutt Padikkal’s addition is likely to force them to tweak the order.

RR have brought together Ravichandran Ashwin and Yuzvendra Chahal, a better spin bowling alternative to Rahul Tewatia minus the batting advantage, as their spin duo.

But the pace bowling attack of Trent Boult, Prasidh Krishna and Nathan Coulter-Nile can be hit or miss. Overall, Delhi Capitals look a better side and should be the favourites today in the DC vs RR IPL match prediction.

The key factor in determining DC vs RR match prediction this season could be how Delhi’s batting units fare against Rajasthan Royals’ spinners. With the Mumbai and Pune surfaces for IPL 2022 not expected to take a lot of turn,

Rajasthan’s spinners will be negated to an extent, but they possess two quality veteran spinners in Ashwin and Chahal and that could pose troubles for Delhi Capitals.

DC vs RR Individual Stats.

Talking about the matches in India in the IPL T20 games, the Royals have dominated the Capitals with 11 victories out of 19 clashes. DC have won eight games on Indian soil.

As for the recent IPL editions, DC have dominated RR as expected from the RR vs DC head to head matches, winning both the league games in the 2019 season as well as the following season. In the IPL 2021,

RR broke DC’s five-match winning streak against them in the first season clash. DC bounced back to claim a victory in the second clash.

Both teams have lost major players too with certain playing XI players like Shreyas Iyer, Shikhar Dhawan, Ben Stokes, Avesh Khan, Jofra Archer, Marcus Stoinis and Kagiso Rabada no longer with their old franchises. This could change the trend of head to head matches between these sides with key personnel finding abode in other franchises.

The contests between these teams have often tilted towards the home side due to the makeup of the teams. In the 2022 Indian Premier League, though, they will have no such advantage with the matches to be played in neutral venues in Mumbai and Pune.
