IPL 2024 RR vs DC: Match preview, head-to-head and streaming details

In their 27 head-to-head encounters in the IPL, Rajasthan Royals have emerged victorious on 14 occasions, while Delhi Capitals have triumphed in 13.

The ninth match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 promises an exciting clash between Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Delhi Capitals (DC) at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur on Thursday, March 28, 2024 at 7:30 PM IST.

RR head into the encounter on a high note, having secured a convincing 20-run victory over Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) in their opening game. Their batting performance was impressive with the captain, Sanju Samson, leading the charge with a stellar knock of 82. Valuable contributions from Riyan Parag and Yashasvi Jaiswal further bolstered their total. The bowling attack, spearheaded by Trent Boult, Sandeep Sharma, and Yuzvendra Chahal, complemented the batting effort with an economical and effective display. With a winning combination, RR might opt to continue with the same playing XI. However, a potential injury concern for Riyan could open the door for their exciting auction buy, Shubham Dubey, to showcase his power-hitting prowess as a finisher.

DC, on the other hand, will be looking to bounce back after a disappointing loss to Punjab Kings (PBKS) in their opening match. They are bolstered by the arrival of Anrich Nortje, who is fresh off training and could be included in the playing XI immediately. Ishant Sharma, who suffered an ankle twist while fielding in their previous match, is also declared available for selection. The Delhi-based franchise will pin its hopes on the skipper, Rishabh Pant, who has a phenomenal record against RR, having scored four fifties in just nine innings against them at a staggering strike rate of 170.


Historically, the rivalry between RR and DC has been highly competitive. In their 27 head-to-head encounters in the IPL, RR have emerged victorious on 14 occasions, while DC have triumphed in 13. This match promises to be another close battle, with both teams possessing the firepower to outplay the other.
