In the last game between these two teams, Chris Morris played a vital role winning the match for the Royals against the Capitals. However, he has not done well in the previous game. On the other hand, Evin Lewis has been in great form since CPL 2021. Still, Rajasthan Royals decided to go without him and Morris.
The captain has not given any specific reason behind it albeit. He has said, “Hoping the wicket gets better as the day goes on. It was a great team effort from everyone but it’s history. Two people not available – Evin Lewis and Chris Morris miss out, and that means Tabraiz Shamsi and David Miller come in. We might have Livingstone coming up the order.”
Rajasthan Royals have chosen to field first. Rishabh Pant, the DC captain has said that it was their plan too.
