After a terrific loss in the away game against Sunrisers Hyderabad, Rajasthan Royals will take on Delhi Daredevils in their second encounter. Both the teams will lock horns on 11 April at Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur. The match will begin at 08:00 PM Local.
Both the teams have lost have their first encounter and would be desperately looking for a win. While SRH registered a 9 wicket win over RR, KXIP defeated DD by 6 wickets in the 2nd match of IPL 2018. While Rajasthan Royals struggled with their batting combination in the first match, Delhi Daredevils put up an ordinary show against KKR. RAJ vs DEL Dream11 prediction is listed below.
Despite having a good team on papers, Rajasthan Royals struggled with the batting combination. They might remain unchanged and shuffle their batting order or can also make one or two changes. There is still no news about Jofra Archer. He is likely to miss this match also. Nothing is concrete at the moment.
Apart from the skipper Gautam Gambhir and Rishabh Pant, every batsman failed to perform in the first match. In bowling, M Shami and Amit Mishra were quite expensive. Delhi can try their bench strength and make one or two changes. Glenn Maxwell has arrived in Jaipur. He might get the chance to play. Liam Plunkett has too arrived and is expected to play.

In Royals, nothing is concrete about Heinrich Klassen while in Delhi Daredevils Glen Maxwell and Liam Plunkett have joined their squad and might play this match. Here is the probable RAJ vs DEL playing 11-
Ajinkya Rahane (c), D Arcy Short, Rahul Tripathi, Sanju Samson, H Klassen/Jos Buttler (wk), Ben Stokes, K Gowtham/S Binny, Ben Laughlin, Shreyas Gopal, Dhawal Kulkarni, Jaydev Unadkat,
Gautam Gambhir (c), Shreyas Iyer, Vijay Shankar, Amit Mishra, Daniel Christian/ G Maxwell, Colin Munro, Trent Boult/Liam Plunkett, Chris Morris, Rahul Tewatia, Mohammed Shami, Rishabh Pant (wk)
RR’s skipper Ajinkya Rahane, all-rounder Ben Stokes and Sanju Samson will be the key players for Rajasthan Royals. Rahane has scored 632 runs in 15 innings against DD. He has scored six half-centuries and has an average above 63. Sanju Samson looked in good touch in the previous match and scored 49 off 42.
On, the other hand, Gautam Gambhir, Chris Morris, and Shreyas Iyer will play a crucial role for DD. Gautam Gambhir scored a half-century in the first encounter against KXIP. Chris Morris was unbeaten on 27 of 16 deliveries and also took a wicket.
Both the teams are strong on paper but failed to perform in their first match. While Delhi lacked lustre in their bowling, Rajasthan has a bad outing with the bat. While it will be the first home game for RR in two years, DD is expected to take an edge over them. Delhi Daredevils looks a bit stronger. However, stats tell a different story. RR has a winning percentage of 72.24 at this stadium. However, as per our RAJ vs DEL Dream11 match prediction, it will be a 50-50 chance for both the teams.
Here we will take Rishabh Pant as the wicketkeeper as anyone among Heinrich Klassen and Jos Butler can get to play. Rishabh Pant here as a wicketkeeper a safe bet. In batsman, we have chosen Gautam Gambhir, Shreyas Iyer, and Sanju Samson as they are a sure shot and are also in-form. Ben Stokes as an all-rounder is a safe bet. He can contribute with both bat and ball. In bowler, although M Shami was a bit expensive, he is expected to make a comeback in this match. Along with him, Jaydev Unadkat and Shreyas Gopal are sure to be in playing 11.
Here, we have chosen a balanced team as average 1st inning score at this venue is 155 while in second innings it remains 143 i.e. the wicket favors both the sides.
