Delhi Capitals (DC) will play their second game in three days when they lock horns with a rampant Rajasthan Royals (RR) at the Wankhede Stadium on Friday. Both teams are coming from the back of convincing wins and will hope to continue the winning streak as we approach the business end of IPL 2022.
The Royals produced a thorough performance against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) with Jos Buttler and Yuzvendra Chahal leading the side from the front. Debutant Obed McCoy also delivered under pressure to win the game for the team.
However, Devdutt Padikkal and captain Sanju Samson’s dismal form will keep the Kumar Sangakkara-led management on their toes as the race for the playoffs gets intensified with each passing day.
The Capitals, on the other hand, have received a much-needed boost with the arrival of David Warner. The veteran Australian has paired well with Prithvi Shaw at the top order. However, DC will want their middle-order to fire to get a more-settled playing XI.

Batters enjoyed scoring runs in that game and that has been the story of all the matches played at the Wankhede. However, spinners are expected to play a part in this game.
