IPL 2018 match 32: Delhi Daredevils to aflame pitch with Rajasthan Royals

On Wednesday, Feroz Shah Kotla Ground, Delhi will observe the smashing match between the Delhi Daredevils and Rajasthan Royals. It is going to be the match number 32 of the VIVO Indian Premier League 2018. 

In their last outing, the Delhi Daredevils were overwhelmed by Chennai Super Kings' Shane Watson and MS Dhoni in Pune. DD has issues to address, especially with their batting line-up. Two batsmen, Rishabh Pant (306 runs) and the newly-appointed skipper Shreyas Iyer(257 runs) have contributed near 46% of the runs scored by the team's batsmen.

The Rajasthan Royals will sting from their misfortune to the Sunrisers Hyderabad. On most days, the Royals would have upheld themselves to pursue down 152 – the objective set by SRH. Not on Sunday evening, when their middle order simply didn't go ahead; the break in the centre overs.
