Out of 27 encounters so far, Rajasthan Royals have won 14 while Delhi Capitals have also won 13.

The Rajasthan Royals had a terrific start to their IPL Career after bringing home the first Indian Premier League trophy in 2008. They were successfully led by skipper Shane Warne. Following this, the franchise saw ups and downs. They were expelled from IPL for two years after the 2015 season due to the Lodha Committee inquiry. The team strengthened their lineup during the 2022 mega auction by adding top players including Trent Boult, Ravichandran Ashwin, Shimron Hetmyer, Devdutt Padikkal, and Yuzvendra Chahal. As a result, the team had an amazing season but eventually finished as runners up. The debuting Gujrat Titans, captained by Hardik Pandya, defeated RR in the finals to clench their maiden league title.

Previously known as the Delhi Daredevils (DD), the Capitals have only made it to the knockout stages four times in sixteen seasons of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The Delhi Capitals have a powerful line-up for the upcoming 2024 Indian Premier League season. The 2020 Indian Premier League runners-up, were beaten by the Mumbai Indians in the only IPL final they have played.

In this 2024 edition, Sanju Samson is the captain of the Royals, while Rishabh Pant is making a comeback as the captain of DC.
