Delhi Capitals are set to lock horns with Rajasthan Royals at the Dubai International Stadium on Wednesday as the action in Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 continues. When both RR and DC met in IPL 2020 the last time, Delhi Capitals won the match by 46 runs in Sharjah as they dominated all three departments of the game. 

However, since then Delhi Capitals have lost Rishabh Pant and Ishant Sharma due to injuries and will be forced to tweak their playing XI combinations as seen in their previous encounter against Mumbai Indians. While Pant has suffered a Grade 1 tear and will be out for a few matches, Ishant has been ruled out of the tournament due to injury. 

Whereas, Rajasthan Royals found their mojo back in their last match against Sunrisers Hyderabad and will be looking to continue their winning run when they take the field in Dubai.

DC vs RR - Head-to-head stats

Talking about head-to-head encounters, both DC and RR have faced each other 21 times with RR winning 11 and DC being victorious in 10 of those matches. However, in last five matches, DC have come out with a win in four clashes whereas RR have managed to win just one game.

Given that the pitches are slowing down rapidly in the UAE, a score of 160-170 is deemed as par in Dubai and it will be interesting to see the approach of the team batting first.
