A win will take Rajasthan, who beat Kolkata by seven runs on Monday, to the top of the points table. Meanwhile, Delhi will be high on confidence after their destructive win over Punjab. They skittled out Punjab for 115 and chased it down with 57 balls to spare.
We look at five exciting First Games fantasy cricket Match-Ups in the Delhi-Rajasthan match.
J ButtlER vs Y Chahal

P Shaw vs D Warner
With 217 runs at a strike rate of 170.86, Prithvi Shaw is Delhi's top run-scorer in the 15th edition. The youngster has offered a treat to Delhi faithful with his free-flowing batting. Shaw's opening partner David Warner has racked up three fifties - 61, 66, and 60* - in four innings. He will be eyeing another big knock.
Verdict: Warner is expected to win the Match-Up against Shaw.
Kuldeep Y vs S Samson
Kuldeep Yadav has proved his detractors wrong with consistent performances so far in the 15th edition. The Delhi spinner is second on the most wickets chart with 13 scalps. But he is up against Sanju Samson, who struck a 19-ball 38 and had a busy time behind the stumps against Kolkata.
Verdict: S Samson could have the last laugh in this Match-Up

K Ahmed vs T Boult
Khaleel Ahmed meets Trent Boult in a Match-Up of two left-arm pacers. Both players have been impressive, especially Khaleel, who reached ten wickets for the first time since the 2019 season. He has been economical, too, conceding just above seven runs per over. Boult, on the other hand, has picked up seven wickets in five matches.
Verdict: K Ahmed is likely to outscore T Boult
A Patel vs S THAKUR
Axar Patel took the wickets of Liam Livingstone and Jitesh Sharma and conceded just ten runs in four overs against Punjab on Wednesday. It was the first time he grabbed a two-wicket haul in the 15th edition. Meanwhile, Shardul Thakur hasn't been prolific as he was last season. He took four wickets in six matches at an economy of 9.59.
Verdict: A Patel has the upper hand in this Match-Up
