Delhi Capitals would aim at continuing their fine form in this season's Indian Premier League when they face Rajasthan Royals on Saturday. The Royals are coming into the clash on the back of a thrilling two-run win over Punjab Kings in their last match but this time, they would expect to do more than pull things off in the last over. Delhi, under Rishabh Pant's captaincy, has not put a foot wrong this season as they comfortably sit second in the table, with 14 points from nine games and just another win would ensure their qualification to the playoffs. Their win over Sunrisers Hyderabad was a perfect testament to their dominance this season. Led by the fiery South African duo of Anrich Nortje and Kagiso Rabada, their bowling attack seems to be in real good hands and once again, they would be difficult for the opposition to deal with. Shikhar Dhawan has been their star batsman, not only giving them good starts as an opener but also leading the Orange Cap list.

DC vs RR Dream11 Team Prediction Captain Pick: Shikhar Dhawan
The left-hander has been in sensational form and sent out a message to the national selectors after being ignored for India's T20 World Cup squad. He has by far been the most consistent batsman in this IPL, leading the race for the Orange Cap with 422 runs. In Delhi's last match against Sunrisers Hyderabad, Dhawan continued his carnage with the bat, scoring 42 runs off 37 balls and set the platform for his side's comfortable win. He would be the best choice for the captain's slot in your Dream11 Team.
DC vs RR Dream11 Team Prediction Vice-Captain Pick: Evin Lewis
The West Indian left-hander, who was in good form in the recently concluded Caribbean Premier League, gave his side a flying start in the last match and his ability to score at a quick pace, especially in the powerplay would be crucial for Rajasthan Royals once again. He would be a good option to choose as your vice-captain for this important clash.
