DC vs RR Live Score, Delhi Capitals vs Rajasthan Royals IPL 2024 - Ponting fires warning to playoff-bound Royals

DC vs RR Live Score, Delhi Capitals vs Rajasthan Royals IPL 2024 - Delhi Capitals' head coach Ricky Ponting pointed out that the hosts have won two of their last three games at the venue. Ponting feels DC can be hard to beat if Pant and Co. play their best cricket for 40 overs. "Our last performance against Kolkata wasn't one of our best, but we're back home now. We've won two of our three games here. We know we're coming up against a very good Rajasthan side, but as we've seen in the tournament so far if we can play our best cricket for 40 overs, then I'll guarantee that we'll be hard to beat. It doesn't matter who we play or where we play them. We know that we can beat anybody," Ponting said.

They (selectors) probably had a good idea of what (the squad) was a month and a half ago, trying to build that, how they can get the connection in that team," Fraser-McGurk told the Willow Talk podcast.
