Sharjah: Rajasthan Royals will take on the perennial but resurgent underdogs, Delhi Capital at Sharjah Cricket Stadium this evening. It has been a surprisingly gleeful season for Delhi Capitals. Delhi has had always been an inconsistent team despite having some formidable Indian and foreign players in their ranks. This year, they are scoring unproblematic straight forward wins against the best teams in the league and judging by their form so far, they could go as far as the play-offs or fulfilling the unimaginable dream of Delhi fans by winning the league. Yet, there is a lot of time before Delhi could dream of winning the title and they have to continue the present form with their star players offering steady dependency and their younger counterparts stepping up to the job when needed. As for the Rajasthan Royals, this season has been wildly conflicting with a few players shining signalling that they could play in the national team just as well as they do in the IPL. Sanju Samson and Rahul Tewatia are two of those players where BCCI selectors will closely monitor in the duration of this year’s IPL. Steve Smith has been a bit inconsistent and in order to fulfil the team’s trust in him as the leader, he has to play the game to his limits and dish out performances on a consistent basis.

Sanju Samson will play a vital role against Delhi today and fans will be expecting only the best efforts from Jos Buttler. In the previous few matches when the IPL teams have played in Sharjah Cricket Stadium, it had rained fours and sixes much to the happiness of the fans. With hard-hitting players like Sanju Samson, Jos Buttler, Shikhar Dawan and Steve Smith, the fans will be expecting the same. This match could lay down a path for Delhi to navigate this year’s IPL in reaching the play-offs as the ultimate destination for the hard-working team. Today’s match will serve just as important for Rajasthan as they look to put an end three game losing streak.
