IPL 2020 RR vs DC Head-to-Head: Can Rajasthan Royals take their revenge against Delhi Capitals? Check out what the IPL history stats suggest

Rajasthan Royals would be riding high on confidence with the return of Ben Stokes and their win against Sunrisers Hyderabad. It was a crucial win, as it has kept them in the race for the playoffs. RR will now look to settle scores against second-placed Delhi Capitals in their return leg IPL match on Wednesday at Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

The Capitals had beaten RR by 46 runs last week and Steve Smith’s men will look to return the compliment when they meet for the second time in the tournament.

The last time the two teams clashed, RR didn’t have Stokes in the ranks and even though the England all-rounder didn’t set the stage on fire in his first game but his presence inspired the former champions to snap a four-match losing streak with a five-wicket win over Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Delhi, on the other hand, were brought down by Mumbai Indians in their last game and Shreyas Iyer’s men will look to shrug off the odd defeat and get back to the top with a professional display.

However, with wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant ruled out for a week due to a hamstring injury, DC have been forced to drop Shimron Hetmyer and include Australian Alex Carey. It also gave Ajinkya Rahane his first match of this IPL.

Can RR get their revenge or will DC bounce back from their loss against Mumbai Indians? Check out what the stats suggest.
