Delhi Capitals to win the 7th game of IPL 2021

The 2021 IPL has already thrown up some fascinating matches and we think that this is because the teams are playing at neutral venues. Two teams that we feel are well-suited for high-scoring conditions are the Rajasthan Royals (RR) and the Delhi Capitals (DC). They will battle it out on the 15th at the Wankhede Stadium. A tip for online cricket betting is that this is the IPL’s highest-scoring venue! RR came close to chasing down 221 in their first game, while the DC won with ease. So, who will come out on top in this game? Read on to find out.

IPL Team Preview: Rajasthan Royals

The RR have just suffered a huge blow to their hopes of going deep into this tournament as Ben Stokes has been ruled out for the rest of the competition with a broken finger.

With Jofra Archer also on the treatment bench, RR are without two of their better players. This means that David Miller or Liam Livingstone will be brought in to replace Stokes. We feel that they will go for Miller due to his reputation as a big hitter, but we would rather see them bring in Livingstone as he can also hit a long ball and can bowl pretty well too. The fact that RR got anywhere close to their target of 221 in their first game was thanks to the brilliance of Sanju Samson. He hit his third century in the IPL, but they fell short.

Despite their disappointment, his form bodes well for the future. England's Jos Buttler will have a huge role to play in the upcoming matches and with Stokes out injured, it is likely that he will open the batting now. When it comes to their bowling department, Chetan Sakariya showed his class but the likes of Chris Morris, Shreyas Gopal, and Mustafizure Rahman were expensive and will need to improve if they are to win this match.

IPL Team Preview: Delhi Capitals

DC played their first match of the tournament minus their two best bowlers and their balance overall looked a touch off. Despite this, they went on to win the game, which was massive for them. We expect Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Norjte to be fit again and they should walk back into the starting XI. This means that England's Tom Curran and Chris Woakes will drop out. Their batting balance is a bit off since we feel that Ajinkya Rahane should not be in the team if he is not going to open the batting. Also, they bat down to six only, meaning that if they lose wickets early, they could struggle to score at the end of the innings if they get that far. However, the six batsmen that they do have are quality players - you have got to be good if you are keeping Steve Smith out the side.

Toss Prediction

Anyone who knows anything about cricket in India will know that if you win the toss at the Wankhede you field first as it has become a notoriously difficult surface to defend on.

Pitch and Conditions

The weather should be very good for cricket, although it might be a bit humid. The pitch has been great for runs lately, with 190 being chased down in the first match and 221 almost being chased down in the next. you should expect a lot of runs in this game and the team that bats first should aim for at least 200.

Our IPL Betting Tip

We are going to go for the Delhi Capitals to win here in a high-scoring game. Both teams have some very talented players, but RR are probably going to rely too much on Samson and Buttler. DC will know that if they can get those two out cheaply, they will have a very good chance of walking away with the points.
