Live Score DC vs RR Highlights, IPL 2021, Today’s Match: DC and RR got off to winning starts in the second leg with DC thumping SRH while RR edging PBKS in a thriller. DC are second in the table and going strong while RR still have a lot of work to do. They are fifth in the table amid intense mid-table competition. It is going to be an uphill task against ma formidable DC and they will need to up their game significantly to get over the line in Abu Dhabi.

Preview: Delhi Capitals take on Rajasthan Royals in the 36th match of IPL 2021 at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.

DC and RR started off with wins in the second leg, however, the manner of their wins was a touch contrasting. DC put on a dominant performance to beat SRH by 8 wickets while RR pulled off a coup by snatching a win from the hands of defeat against PBKS.

DC had their express combo of Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje back together and it clicked. The duo combined to take five wickets and concede just 49 runs from 8 overs combined. Axar Patel too chipped in with two wickets as the bowlers put on a good show to restrict SRH to just 134.

Chasing the target, DC lost Prithvi Shaw early but Shikhar Dhawan carried on his good form and hit 42 off 37 balls as he and Shreyas Iyer stabilised proceedings. Captain Rishabh Pant then played a mature innings of 35 off 21 to finish off the match along with Iyer with 2.5 overs to spare.

Almost everything went right for DC apart from the fact that they lost Marcus Stoinis to a hamstring injury pretty early in the match. DC would be sweating on his fitness as he is a key player in their line-up. In case he misses out, DC might look at Tom Curran to fill that all-rounder’s spot. Or they have the option to add an extra batsman in Sam Billings or Steve Smith. There is also an option to include left-arm Australian pacer Ben Dwarshius who impressed in the BBL.

DC didn’t do too much wrong in the match against SRH and they would be looking to carry forward the momentum into the RR match.

RR, on the other hand, looked down and out against Punjab Kings. PBKS needed just 8 runs from the final two overs but Mustafizur Rahman bowled a frugal penultimate over and then Kartik Tyagi bowled a brilliant final over to defend 4 runs and win it for RR.

Batting first, RR got off to a good start as openers Evin Lewis and Yashasvi Jaiswal put on 54 runs for the opening wicket. Mahipal Lomror then played a brisk cameo of 17-ball 43 but they lost their way at the death. At one point they looked on course for a 200 plus total but they ended up well short with 185.

In the bowling department, Chetan Sakariya and Morris went for plenty and they would look to bounce back hard.

It was a jailbreak against PBKS and RR would look for a much-improved performance against a formidable DC side. They wouldn’t look to change the winning combination.

DC are top of the table while RR are fifth and would be looking to climb up the ladder. We can expect a cracking contest.
