The eleventh match of the Tata IPL 2023 is set to take place between Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Capitals. Rajasthan Royals will be facing Delhi Capitals for the first time this season.
Rajasthan Royals began their campaign with a massive win over SRH but could not continue their winning momentum against Punjab Kings in Guwahati, falling 5 runs short of the target. Their star bowlers, Trent Boult and Yuzvendra Chahal, had an off day, while the likes of Ashwin and Holder did considerably well. Overall, their batting looks fine, and they will be expecting their bowlers to have a better day in this match.
Current standings show Rajasthan Royals at the fourth position on the points table of this season of IPL, whereas Delhi Capitals is currently placed at the eighth spot.
Rajasthan Royals have played two matches in this season of the IPL, winning one game. Meanwhile, Delhi Capitals have played two matches in this season but have been unable to win even a single game.
Rajasthan Royals played their last game against Punjab Kings, where they lost by 5 runs despite Sanju Samson smashing 42 runs and Jason Holder grabbing 2 wickets for Rajasthan Royals. On the other hand, Delhi Capitals played their last game against Gujarat Titans, where they lost by 5 wickets.
On the other hand, Delhi Capitals lost each of their first two games so far. Their batting is struggling in all phases of the game, and skipper David Warner will be keen to make an impact with the bat, alongside the likes of Prithvi Shaw and Mitchell Marsh. In bowling fronts, the return of Anrich Nortje was a positive in the last match, but they will surely need other bowlers to step up as well. Delhi have won three out of the last five games against the Royals. They will be hoping to open their account in this match and register their first win of the season.

DC vs RR Match Pitch Report
The Barsapara Stadium in Guwahati, where the match is set to take place, is of moderate size and is often proven to be a batter’s paradise. The straighter boundaries are around 65 meters, while the square boundaries are slightly bigger, around 68 to 70 meters. There is very limited help for the bowlers on this surface, and a similar behavior from the pitch is anticipated in this match as well.
The surface at the Barsapara Stadium in Guwahati is balanced, but it might be a lot drier as this will be the second game on this wicket in three days. The spinners will come into play in the middle overs, as there will not be any dew factor. The team winning the toss should bat first, and the first innings total is expected to be around 170. Anything above that will be very difficult to chase.
