Ajinkya Rahane has been selected to captain Rajasthan Royals after Steve Smith was banned. While the choice is good and there is no doubt of Rahane’s playing abilities, he is still a very orthodox player. The question remains whether he will be able to lead his side to perform in a cohesive manner as that is what the Royals need to win the game against Delhi Daredevils.

After a short stint with Kolkata Knight Riders, Gautam Gambhir is back with Delhi Daredevils. He is captaining the side and his vast experience will come to play when the team takes on the Royals. Of course, KKR have Glenn Maxwell and Kagiso Rabada, but will that be enough is the big question.

Match Prediction

When you take Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Daredevils, it is quite visible that the Royals have an upper hand. They have batting and bowling depth that the Daredevils are lacking. Even though the Royals are without services of Steve Smith, they have enough talent to win the match.

Here are some reasons why Rajasthan Royals may end up leaving Delhi Daredevils behind:

  • Heinrich Klaasen will most probably take the place of Steve Smith in the batting line up. He is a formidable T20 player.

  • Rahane will have to marshal the players to perform their best. This work will be made easy as many of the core players worked well together while playing Rising Pune Supergiant

  • Senior players will be willing to help Rahane out as a captain and that could ensure that lack of international experience has no effect
