Having played one match each, Rajasthan Royals (RR) will clash with Delhi Capitals (DC) in the seventh IPL2021 match at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Thursday.
DC might replace Chris Woakes and Tom Curran with Andrich Nortje and Kagiso Rabada. The South-African duo is known for its deadly pace and will provide an opportunity for the DC pace-attack to work in tandem.
With Ben Stokes being ruled out of the remaining tournament due to a finger injury, the Jaipur-based franchise might include David Miller or Liam Livingstone in the playing eleven. Also, Mustafizur Rehman, who conceded far too many runs in the opening match, might be replaced by Andrew Tye.
Head To Head Record:

The Wankhede pitch is known for assisting swing bowlers. However, once the batsmen are in the groove, it may also provide them with an opportunity to score some big numbers.
