RR vs DC Match Prediction & Betting Tips - Mar 28, 2024

The Rajasthan Royals are going to be playing against the Delhi Capitals in what will be the second match for both teams of IPL 2024. The teams have had a contrasting start to their campaigns. Rajasthan Royals registered a massive victory against the Lucknow Super Giants while the Delhi Capitals lost to a mediocre Punjabk Kings team. RR is a pretty strong favorite heading into this match. Can it deliver or is an upset on the cards?

RR vs DC Head to Head

The overall record between these two teams is quite close. RR has 14 wins from 27 matches, just one more than DC. In fact, recent matches have been dominated by DC who have won 7 out of the most recent 10.

RR vs DC Team Previews

Rajasthan Royals

RR was led by a brilliant inning from Sanju Samson in the previous match, a player that has historically started IPL seasons strong but then fallen away. He is going to be lynchpin of the batting lineup once more but he has plenty of support in that department. 

Jos Buttler and Yashasvi Jaiswal form a potentially blockbuster opening partnership. Jaiswal, especially, has been in brilliant form and is one of our picks to be in the race for the orange cap this season. RR also has Dhruv Jurel in its lineup, another young Indian batter that is very highly rated and someone that has had success at the international level already. 

Having so many quality Indian batters in the lineup is rare and allows RR to play an overseas bowler as its impact player, if needed. Shimron Hetmyer adds power to this batting lineup as well. 

Among the bowlers, Trent Boult and Nandre Burger were used to provide the push with the new ball followed by R Ashwin, Y Chahal, and Sandeep Sharma. There is no doubt about the quality of the spinners and this gives RR one of the most balanced bowling lineups going around. 

We think Sandeep Sharma's reinvention as a death-bowler is a bit risky. He was good in the first match but his lack of pace, absence of a short ball option, and predictability once the batter is set makes him vulnerable.

Delhi Capitals

Out of all the teams that have played in IPL 2024 so far, we think DC has looked the worst. This is not only true in the manner that they have played but also in the selection of the squad. Why would you not play Prithvi Shaw and Mukesh Kumar in your lineup unless they were seriously injured? Especially when the other options were Ricky Bhuii and Sumit Kumar??

It was bewildering to watch and we have no explanations. 

The positive for DC in the previous match was the comeback of Rishab Pant, who was understabdably not fluent but looked fitter than before his accident. We liked the way Abhisjek Porel played and added impetus in the end. Hopefully that buys him a place in the eleven for this match but with DC, you can never know. 

Mitch Marsh, David Warner, Shai Hope, and Tristan Stubbs are all fine choices as overseas players. They are not necessarily the cream of T20 players going around but if they can start to perform to their potential, DC may have enough runs to play with. 

Ishant Sharma seemed to have injured himself in the previous match and may be replaced. That is a big loss for DC as he was the best fast bowler on show. Kuldeep Yadav continues to be world class and picked up two wickets for just 20 runs in his four overs. 

Axar Patel was quite good also even though he did not pick up a wicket. Mitch Marsh was the most disappointing of the bowlers in the previous match.

The team that wins the toss may want to field first. Six out of the last ten matches played at this venue have been won by the team that has chased.

Pitch and Conditions

The conditions at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in the previous match were a bit slow and not necessarily the best for batting. RR ended up scoring 193 but that was largely because of the brilliance of Sanju Samson and proved to be well over par. 

The average score batting first in the previous ten matches at the venue has been 172 but the average winning score is 180. So teams need to try and get 9 an over at least to feel comfortable defending. 

The weather forecast is excellent and there are no interruptions expected. 

RR vs DC Betting Tips

We think this is a great opportunity for RR to register a second win and move on up in the IPL 2024 standings. RR has a stronger batting lineup, amuch stronger and better settled bowling attack, and most importantly a management that seems to understand its squad. DC has potential, there is no IPL team that does not, but we see it as one of the teams that is likely to lose most of its matches this season.

Bet on the Rajasthan Royals to win.

    Yashasvi Jaiswal Total Runs

    Over 24.5 (1.85)


Jaiswal may have missed out in the previous match but we think he is more than likely to cash in against a weak DC bowling attack. His match-up against the likes of Khaleel Ahmed, Kuldeep yadav, or Mukesh Kumar is very favorable.

  1. Parimatch


    RR Total Runs 1-6 Overs

    Over 47.5 (1.45)


Rajasthan Royals have been brilliant in the powerplay and has a fantastic combination to take advantage of that period. Both Buttler and Jaiswal can be expected to go hard and make the most of the field restrictions. We are happy to bet Over 47.5 in this one.

    Rajasthan Royals (1.90)


We have seen the better batting lineup hit more boundaries even when results do not necessarily go their way. This market is one of the most consistent betting markets out there and we think RR is the team to back for this one.
