DC vs RR: IPL 2021: Match Prediction
DC had an all-round match with both their batting and bowling attacks. They performed well & they would expect to continue the same. Rajasthan top order kept attacking the opposition but their lower middle order failed to capitalize on the start. Their bowlers too looked clueless for the first half of the match. But, they made a brilliant comeback to win the match out of nowhere. We expect Delhi Capitals to win the match as they have a better batting and bowling units when compared to Rajasthan Royals in terms of experience.
