Delhi Capitals lost to KKR in their previous match at the Eden Gardens. It was a tactical error from Rishabh Pant that cost them the game. DC chose to bat after winning the toss in Kolkata and could only muster 153 with the bat. Heading into this game, they face a must-win situation. They are likely to be still without the likes of David Warner and Ishant Sharma who are yet to recover from their respective injury concerns. The spinners are their real strength heading into this game and their batters will need to own up a lot of responsibility. 

On the other hand, Rajasthan Royals have been the best team of this season so far in the league stage. They lost a close game against SRH in their previous game. However, a win against DC will almost guarantee them a spot in the playoffs. RR have played as a cohesive unit with the batters scoring runs and the bowlers taking wickets. The rise of Riyan Paran has been the story so far for them this season. Against DC whom they have already beaten in the tournament, they will want to keep the momentum going.
