DC vs RR, IPL 2019, Delhi Capitals vs Rajasthan Royals, Delhi Capitals Seek Top Two Finish, Rajasthan Royals Hope For Miracle. The 53rd match of IPL 2019 will be played on 4th May at 4 PM IST between the Delhi Capitals and the Rajasthan Royals at the Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi.
DC, who have qualified for the play-offs, will eye a victory in order to keep themselves in the hunt for a top two finish. DC markedly suffered from the absence of Kagiso Rabada and that reflected in the bowling figures. It was the young spinner Jagadeesha Suchith who starred with a figure of 2/28.
Needing a win to stay alive, Rajasthan Royals – with 11 points – cannot afford a poor game. Lose, and their IPL season is over. Despite having a poorer net run-rate than Kings XI Punjab, Rajasthan could still end up ahead of them on the IPL 2019 points table if they beat Delhi. This would give them 13 points.
