The Rajasthan Royals will be taking on the Delhi Capitals in the 11th match of the Indian Premier league 2023.The match will be played in Barsapara Stadium, Guwahati. starting at 3:30 PM IST.
The Delhi Capitals do not have a confident batting lot and their line up looks thin on form in this tournament so far. There is too much of dependency on the standing captain David Warner. Other than that the team has not batted well as a unit. The fact is that if they want to go any further in this tournament then every member of the team needs to step up to the challenge. Relying on just one batsman throughout the tournament raises red flags and if all the11 players do not focus on their performance, they may end up creating a big mess in the ground.
Talking about the Rajasthan Royals, the first big development is that the killer batsman Jos Buttler will not be a part of this match due to the injury that he sustained in the previous match while taking a catch in the deep mid-wicket region. His absence will surely have solid repercussions that may result into approximately 30% loss in the Rajasthan Royals run making ability. No doubt a huge cost to bear, Rajasthan Royals will have to find a new opening partner for Yashasvi Jaiswal.
Possible choices could be Devdutt Padikkal or Sanju Samson. These two options to fill in for Jos Buttler up at the top can probably be the best ones. As for as the Rajasthan Royals bowling goes they have a fairly sorted out bowling attack. One of the top left arm bowlers in Trent Boult, two world class spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Yuzvendra Chahal can be the worthy contributors. As far as the batting goes despite not having the services of Jos Buttler for this match they still have a talented batting line up in Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shimron Hetmyer and Riyan, Parag. This is still a power packed batting line up.
Certainly a lot of Fizz to cherish, so sit back and enjoy the game.
