Match 58 - RAJ vs DEL Preview and Fantasy Prediction
Ind T20 League 2022
Match 58: RAJ vs DEL
After a resounding win in their last game, Rajasthan will look to pounce on an under confident Delhi and consolidate their position at the top half of the table. Delhi on the other side will try to bounce back from the embarrassment they suffered in their recent fixture against Chennai. Both sides will be squaring off at the DY Patil Stadium on Wednesday.
With 7 wins in 11 games, Rajasthan are comfortably sitting at third. After losing two games on the trot, Rajasthan made an emphatic comeback to book a place in top four. Yashashvi Jaiswal and Yuzvendra Chahal were the chief architects of the last win against Punjab. While Jaiswal scored a quickfire 68 on his return game, Chahal picked up three crucial wickets to restrict the Punjab batters at 189. Now, with momentum on their side, Samson’s men will be eager to carry it ahead in the competition.
Things change, people change but Delhi doesn't. They continue to face the same problems which have haunted them in the past. Batting is one front which still seems pretty fragile. Apart from David Warner and Rovman Powell no other batter has managed to create any considerable impact. Senior pros Marsh and Pant should take the onus upon themselves and try to inspire the other batters around them. Pant in particular is going through a tough time. He is struggling with his timing which is quite apparent with his last few dismissals. Bowling has done well in patches with Kuldeep leading the prowess. In order to produce a favourable outcome, the men in pink will need to put up an all round performance.
Match: RAJ vs DEL, 58th Match, Indian T20 League 2022
Date: Wednesday, May 11, 2022
Time: 7:30 PM
Venue: Dr DY Patil Sports Academy, Mumbai
The DY Patil wicket offers good bounce for bowlers. While pace bowlers will get the initial movement and decent bounce, spinners will come in handy in the middle overs. Batters will also get some assistance from the deck. They should try to anticipate the length, come on top of the bounce and play through the line.

Top Fantasy Picks
Jos Butler has been the leading run scorer in this edition of Indian T20 League. His trigger and foot movement are unparalleled this year. We fancy the current orange cap holder to continue on his merry ways.
Yuzvendra Chahal has by far been the most proficient bowler for Rajasthan. With 22 wickets to his name, the Indian spin wizard is currently leading the purple cap race.
David Warner is in phenomenal touch off late. The southpaw has done the majority of scoring for his team and still looks hungry for more.
Khaleel Ahmed is bowling well. The lanky pacer has bagged 16 wickets at an impressive economy rate of 7.25.
Risky Captaincy Choice
Kuldeep Sen is our pick for today’s Risky Captaincy choice segment. Sen has been in news ever since his arrival in the Ind T20 League. His fiery 4/20 against a potent batting unit of Bangalore speaks volume of his proficiency.
