According to the IPL 2022 timetable, the 34th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2022) will see the Rajasthan Royals (RR) lock horns with the Delhi Capitals (DC) at the MCA Stadium in Pune on Friday.
The Rajasthan Royals, on the back of Jos Buttler and Yuzvendra Chahal's sensational performances, are third in the IPL points table with four wins in six games. They will be keen to continue their fine form against the Delhi Capitals, who beat the Punjab Kings (PBKS) earlier in the week. While David Warner and Prithvi Shaw have impressed over the last few games, DC's bowlers, especially Kuldeep Yadav, have stood out with valuable contributions. Both IPL teams look evenly-matched on paper, paving the way for an intriguing game in IPL 2022.

DC vs RR, Indian Premier League 2022, Match 34
Date and Time: 22nd April 2022, 7:30 PM IST
Venue: MCA Stadium, Pune
The MCA Stadium has been a high-scoring venue, with the average first-innings score in the last five IPL 2022 matches here being 170 runs. The pacers have got some help with the new ball, keeping the batters on their toes. The pitch should even out as the match progresses, allowing the batters to attack the shorter side of the ground. Dew is likely to play a big role in the second innings, making it difficult for the bowlers to grip the ball. Both teams will look to chase upon winning the toss, a trend that isn't likely to change today.
Today’s DC vs RR Dream11 match top picks
Sanju Samson: Sanju Samson has not fired in recent games for the Rajasthan Royals, leaving Jos Buttler and Shimron Hetmyer to do the bulk of the scoring. However, Samson remains Rajasthan's best bet in the middle overs, given his prowess against both pace and spin. With the RR captain due for a big score, he is a must-have in your DC vs RR Dream11 fantasy team.
David Warner: David Warner has been in terrific form in IPL 2022, already scoring three fifties for the Delhi Capitals. The southpaw has been brilliant against both pace and spin and is certainly one to keep an eye out for in this game.
Axar Patel: Axar Patel was back at his best against the Punjab Kings, picking up two wickets while conceding only 10 runs in his four overs. While Axar's spin-bowling prowess will be key in the middle overs, his batting also adds value to his case for inclusion in your DC vs RR Dream11 fantasy team.
Yuzvendra Chahal: Yuzvendra Chahal comes into the game on the back of a fifer, including a sensational hat-trick, against the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). Chahal is currently the IPL 2022 Purple Cap holder with 17 wickets in six matches, using his experience and guile to good effect. With Chahal's form and the conditions coming into play, he can be backed to put in another good performance today.
