IPL 2018: DD vs RR

New Delhi:

Bottom of the points table, Delhi Daredevils will host Rajasthan Royals at the Feroz Shah Kotla in the Indian Premier League on Wednesday.

Ajinkya Rahane-led RR are 5th on the table and are going through a patchy form, whereas DD’s fight and resilience is praise-worthy since youngster Shreyas Iyer has taken the baton to lead the team.

Both the teams will be looking for a win and get something to smile on. While DD’s chances of qualification look grim, RR are very much in the contention for the top 4 spot.

Interesting fact: RR have won the last three meetings at this venue after losing their first three.
