In the last game against Lucknow Super Giants, Rajasthan Royals emerged victorious and started the season positively. Choosing to bat first, RR skipper Sanju Samson (82* off 52) and right-hand batter Riyan Parag (43 off 29) stitched a brilliant 93-run partnership and guided the team to a total of 193/4. LSG lost wickets at regular intervals and faced defeat by 20 runs. Skipper KL Rahul and Nicholas Pooran did provide some hope but the hosts kept their nerves till the very end.

On the other hand, Delhi Capitals are coming off a defeat against Punjab Kings in their opening game of the season. DC captain Rishabh Pant made a comeback to the field after almost one and a half years. DC who finished ninth on the table in the 2023 season wanted to make a roaring comeback in the ongoing season. The Delhi-based franchise lost the last game by four wickets. The visitors will be looking to move on from their defeat and will aim to secure their first win of the tournament.
