The Delhi Capitals, who are in good form, will be looking to maintain their lead in the Indian Premier League when they face a resurgent Rajasthan Royals in Abu Dhabi on Saturday. The Rishabh Pant-led team had an incredible first round, winning six of their eight games. They began the second round on a good note by defeating Sunrisers Hyderabad by eight wickets on Wednesday, maintaining their lead in the points chart. Rajasthan, on the other hand, will be full of confidence after pulling a two-run triumph from the jaws of defeat against Punjab Kings in the first leg. They have closed the distance on the playoff spots with the win. They will advance to the top four if they manage to win over Delhi. Young batsmen Yashasvi Jaiswal and Mahipal Lomror performed admirably for Rajasthan against Punjab, but skipper Sanju Samson will be asked to shoulder greater responsibility. In the end, pacers Kartik Tyagi and Mustafizur Rahman of Bangladesh did the job in the bowling department. The Royals will face a daunting challenge against the Delhi Capitals on Saturday, with openers Shikhar Dhawan, the tournament's leading run scorer this season, and Prithvi Shaw looking in great shape.
