In the match after Gautam Gambhir stepped down as the captain, Iyer scored 93 off 40 balls and too unbeaten and made his side win against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR).

On the other hand, Royals are facing the same situation. Wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant and Captain Iyer are their leading run scorers with 257 and 306 runs respectively. Among the bowlers, pacer Jofra Archer has done well to claim six wickets in the two matches that he has played so far. It has resulted in their failure to defend totals, putting their batting under pressure.

Delhi Daredevils have won just two matches off the eight they played so far whereas Rajasthan Royals do a little better in this term having registered 3 wins off the 7 matches they have played.

Both the teams will be looking for a win and get something to smile on. RR was defeated by Sunrisers Hyderabad in a low-scoring affair, RR skipper Ajinkya Rahane will also be eager to register a win.

Rajasthan Royals: Ajinkya Rahane (captain), Ankit Sharma, Anureet Singh, Jofra Archer, Stuart Binny, Aryaman Birla, Jos Buttler, Dushmantha Chameera, Prashant Chopra, Shreyas Gopal, Krishnappa Gowtham, Heinrich Klaasen, Dhawal Kulkarni, Ben Laughlin, Mahipal Lomror, Sudhesan Midhun, Sanju Samson, Jatin Saxena, D'Arcy Short, Ish Sodhi, Ben Stokes, Rahul Tripathi, Jaydev Unadkat. If Rajasthan loses the match, then they will have to win the remaining 5 matches.

Rahane and Samson have been consistent but Butler and Stokes' inconsistency have affected their overall performance.

But RR's main concern will be the form of their spinners - Shreyas Gopal and K. Gowtham - who have so far failed to hunt in pairs.
