DC vs RR Live Score, Delhi Capitals vs Rajasthan Royals IPL 2024 - Brian Lara and Deep Dasgupta deliver the pitch report from Delhi

DC vs RR Live Score, Delhi Capitals vs Rajasthan Royals IPL 2024 - Win the toss and bat first? DC’s match against RR is tipped to be a high-scoring encounter. Teams have crossed the 200-run mark five times in the last six games at this venue. "Fourth game here in Delhi and the average score is 249 so far, five out of the six innings have seen scores over 200. One of the reasons is the dimensions of this ground. Today the side boundaries are 59m and 67m, 74m straight hit. Pitches early on here had more grass, now we have more bare patches and a few cracks. There is still some grass cover in the middle of the pitch. I believe it is going to be another high-scoring game," Brian Lara and Deep Dasgupta mentioned in their pitch report.
