A rivalry that has been intensely and feisty contested since the onset of the Indian Premier League is all set to resume come Saturday. The first of this weekend’s matches is set to blow up the concluding stages of the group phase in the tournament when two northern franchisees square off against each other. And there could be no better setting for a match of such mammoth scales than the rousing Feroz Shah Kotla packed with boisterous support for the Capitals.

While the narrative is an extremely engrossing one, the battle to end the season as strongly as possible only sets to add to the humongous value of this encounter. Unbeaten in their last three matches, the Royals are on an incredible upturn in form as they look to push themselves as far as possible in one last flurry for the top 4.

Pitch Report

While this has throughout the season continued to meet out our way extremely spin friendly conditions, the last 4:00 pm encounter on this surface showed what the scorching heat can do to a pitch. The cracks will cover up, the surface will harden and the ball will come onto the bat nicely. This will be a complete opposite to what we are used to seeing and expecting the runs to be scored at a free will.

The side winning the toss first will look to bat second.

Probable Winner

There’s too much at stake for either side here and this encounter will be contested on level ground. What bodes well for the Delhi side is that they are facing a diluted Rajasthan outfit, one who have massive gaping holes that they may find impossible to fill in. Delhi found solace at home the last time they played here and with the burning sun baking the surface in the afternoon, the batting-friendly surface will immensely favour them. Delhi should win this and move back in the top 2.
