Rajasthan Royals will take on Delhi Capitals in their sixth match of IPL 2020 at Sharjah Cricket Stadium in Sharjah tonight.

Captain Steven Smith and Samson couldn't carry their Sharjah form to Dubai and Abu Dhabi and now they're back to Sharjah so that will give them some confidence. Jos Buttler played 70 runs knock in the last match and he will look to continue his good form. In bowling Jofra Archer, Shreyas Gopal, Tom Curran, and young Kartik Tyagi who impressed on debut need to do well especially in death overs.

Prithvi Shaw, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Marcus Stoinis, and Shikhar Dhawan all are among runs and they will look to continue their good run. In the bowling, Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje have been excellent in the power play as well as in death overs. In the middle overs R Ashwin, Axar Patel and Marcus Stoinis are doing their job so Delhi is looking a complete inform side.
