It’s a Friday night match at the batting paradise, Sharjah Cricket Stadium between the Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Capitals. Looking at both sides, the Steve Smith-led Rajasthan have won both the games with ease which they’ve played at Sharjah. That being said, they haven’t played good cricket outside Sharjah, losing all the three games. Tonight, we find out whether it’s the Sharjah’s ground playing a role in Royal’s victory or is it just plain luck.
Delhi Capitals have been performing extra-ordinarily in the edition of Dream11 IPL. They’ve almost covered and executed skilfully every aspect of the game, whether it’s batting, bowling or fielding. Great captaincy by the young Shreyas Iyer and having the legendary Ricky Pointing as a coach is helping them to achieve a ticket to the Playoffs pretty easily.
The Capitals could grab hold of the top spot on the table if they seal the game tonight, whereas the currently placed seventh, Royals need their players to come with their A-game before it’s too late ultimately leading on to succumb their chances to qualify for the Playoffs.
We anticipate tonight a high scoring batting show by both the neighbouring state teams, this one’s going to be interesting. Now let’s take a look at the top 5 players to watch out for.
Let’s take a look at the top 5 key players we should watch out for when Rajasthan Royals lock horns with Delhi Capitals:
1. Sanju Samson
The young super talented wicket-keeper batsman has been the talk of the town lately. With the clean striking of the ball, he currently averages an extraordinary strike rate of 192.13 and has hit 16, the greatest number of sixes by any player in this tournament so far.
Leading run-scorer for Rajasthan Royals, he has struggled to bat with the same form outside Sharjah, similar performance the entire team has been showing. It’s safe to say that he does play a key role for his team to come out victorious.
