After pulling off a magnificent run-chase against the Sunrisers Hyderabad in their previous IPL 2020 fixture, the Rajasthan Royals will be keen to continue their winning momentum when they battle the Delhi Capitals in their eighth game.
The Jaipur-based franchise had made a solid start to their IPL 2020 season as they registered two wins in their first two matches. However, they went on a 4-match losing streak after stepping out of Sharjah. When they returned to the Sharjah Cricket Stadium last week, the Capitals handed them a 46-run defeat.
The Royals will aim to avenge that defeat and improve their position on the standings. The Delhi Capitals will not have the services of wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant for this game as he is out with an injury issue.
Heading into a crucial game for the two teams on either end of the table, and here's a look at their head-to-head stats ahead of their reverse fixture in IPL 2020.
