Rajasthan Royals (RR) will lock horns with Delhi Daredevils (DD) in match no. 36 of the Pepsi Indian Premier League (IPL) 2015 at the Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai on Sunday.
The Royals will look to get back to winning ways as they lost three out of their last five games and the other two have been washed out by rains. The Daredevils on the other hand, are looking good and if they manage to win this game against RR, they will move up to the third position in the points table. Either of these sides would not want to lose this game.
Here are some of the key players from both the sides who can make a difference in this game on Sunday:
Ajinkya Rahane: Rahane has been in good form and he has been scoring a lot of runs in this edition of this IPL. He does no try too many things at the same time and loves to keep it simple. Rahane makes sure most of the time that the Royals have a good start to their innings alongside Shane Watson. He is equally good on the field as well.
Shane Watson: Watson loves to lead his side from the front. His opening partnership with Rahane will be crucial at the top of order for the Royals. He will also chip in with a couple of overs with the ball and has this knack of picking up wickets at crucial situations. He will be looking to get the combinations right so that RR returns to winning ways.
Shreyas Iyer: The Daredevils got rid of their batting woes as Shreyas Iyer have been scoring a lot of runs at the top of the order. He is slowly moving up the highest run getter table. He holds the key to Delhi's success. He is a naturally attacking batsman and he would come hard at the Royals bowling attack right from the word go on Sunday.
Zaheer Khan: It could not have been a better comeback for this veteran Indian fast bowler. He came back into the Delhi squad against the Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) and bowled superbly with the new ball upfront. His economy rate was commendable and also picked up two wickets. He will be crucial member of this Delhi squad on Sunday against the Royals.
