Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer stitched together an important partnership after pacer Kartik Tyagi removed opener Shikhar Dhawan while Chetan Sakariya dismissed Prithvi Shaw early. Earlier, Rishabh Pant-led Delhi Capitals (DC) were asked to bat first by Rajasthan Royals (RR) skipper Sanju Samson after winning the toss in Abu Dhabi. RR bring in David Miller and Tabraiz Shamsi in place of Evin Lewis and Chris Morris while DC are forced to make a change due to an injury to Marcus Stoinis, who is replaced by Lalit Yadav. DC have continued from where they left off in the first phase of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 in India. The Rishabh Pant-led franchise has been nothing less than ruthless and will be looking to sustain their form when they take on an inspired RR led by the charismatic wicket-keeper batsman Sanju Samson. DC have registered seven wins in nine games in IPL 2021 so far and are currently placed second in the IPL points table. A win would help them overtake Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at the top for the time being. RR, on the other hand, escaped with a two-run win against Punjab Kings (PBKS) in their previous match and will be aiming for a better start to this game scheduled to be played in Abu Dhabi.
