The Delhi Capitals changed their name in 2019. They were previously known as the Delhi Daredevils. The franchise is making moves to improve, and that is going to make DC vs RR meetings in the future far more interesting. The Capitals are yet even to contest the IPL final, while the Rajasthan Royals do have a win to their name, although that was over a decade ago.
The Delhi Capitals call the Arun Jaitley Stadium in New Delhi their home, and this is where they want to bring success in the future. The team working off the field has put things in place, and it is now up to those who play on the field to take this franchise forward and get that elusive first win.

DC vs RR
The Rajasthan Royals are one of the original eight IPL franchises and tasted success in the early days. However, it has been tough going for them since that, and they haven’t won a title in over a decade. After suspension in 2016 and 2017, the Royals came back in 2018 but have yet to bring success back to their home, which is the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur.
DC vs RR Highlights
The first meeting between these two in 2019 gave us some great DC vs RR highlights to watch. These included a fantastic unbeaten century from Ajinkya Rahane, who scored 105 not out off 63 deliveries. Despite that, the Capitals still won the game, with Rishabh Pant scoring an unbeaten 78 and Shikhar Dhawan scoring 54 to back him up. That meeting was the first game they played of two last season, and Rajasthan was the home team on that occasion, but the century from Ajinkya Rahane will go down as one of the best highlights to come from games featuring these two teams.
DC vs RR 2019
The DC vs RR 2019 meeting hosted by the Delhi Capitals was a comfortable win for the home team after the Rajasthan Royals failed to put any score on the board when batting first. The Royals only reached 115/9 from their 20 overs, and only a half-century from Riyan Parag prevented their score from being much worse. Amit Mishra and Ishant Sharma both took three wickets for the Capitals, with Mishra also conceding just 17 runs from his four overs, something that helped him claim the man of the match award in this game.
With the bat, the Capitals eased to victory with 23 balls left, and they could have gone much harder had they needed to. Rishabh Pant was the top scorer for his team, scoring 53 not out off 38 deliveries to bring his team home in style and take the points.
DC vs RR Prediction
With the Delhi Capitals winning both meetings last season, those looking for a DC vs RR prediction will immediately be drawn to that. The Capitals are a team trying to make their claim to move higher up the rankings and challenge for the IPL title, and if they want to do that then they have to win games against the lower ranked teams like the Royals. There has been many changes to the Capitals and all of that has been done to try and make them compete with the best in the league. The Rajasthan Royals are one of the smaller teams in the IPL, and have yet to really show anything since their comeback that suggests a title challenge is just around the corner.
DC vs RR Live Score
There will be plenty of interest from people looking for the DC vs RR live score in this game. This will include those who want to watch all the game and keep up to date with what is happening. Luckily for fans of the IPL, the league has negotiated many TV deals all over the world to try and get the games out to as many people as they can. It is wise to check who has the TV rights for your country ahead of the competition beginning, so you know where you have to go when you want to watch a game such as this one.
The IPL also provides live streaming right to companies around the world, so those who don’t want to watch on TV, or can’t, can instead keep up to date with a live stream on their computer. This is another way in which the IPL are trying to make the games as accessible to their fans as possible, no matter where you live in the world.
DC vs RR Head to Head
Below we have DC vs RR head to head stats for you to look at and compare. It is worth noting that the stats include the period when the Delhi team was known as the Daredevils, before their name change, to give an overall picture of how these two franchises have competed against each other over the years.
Games played: 20
Delhi Capitals wins: 9
Rajasthan Royals wins: 11
As you can see, at 11-9 to the Royals, this head to head series is very tight, although that doesn’t tell the whole picture. The Capitals won the two meetings last year after their name change, and they gave them three wins in a row. However, prior to that, when the Delhi team were struggling a little and the Rajasthan team looked to be on the up, the Royals won seven games in a row to give themselves real command of the head to head battle. As things stand now, neither of these two franchises are the best, but both are looking to get up there. There is not room for everyone at the top, and if either wants to make the jump up and compete with the bigger teams in finals then they need to get the better of those around them. For Delhi, that is simple, to maintain the 100% record they have over the Royals while they have been known as the Capitals.
