On Thursday, April 15, the Rajasthan Royals will face the Delhi Capitals in the sixth game of the IPL 2021 at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium. So far in the tournament, the two teams have had completely different fortunes. Although DC defeated CSK in their previous match, RR lost to PBKS.
Currently, they’re both struggling with multiple absentees. Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer, two of Rajasthan’s overseas pillars, are both injured whereas Shreyas Iyer, Delhi’s captain, sustained a shoulder injury while playing for his country. Now, their fast bowler Anrich Nortje has tested positive for COVID-19 and will, at the very least, miss a few crucial games. Delhi would have a small advantage heading into this match because they began their season with a victory.
