To make matters worse for DC, Ajinkya Rahane was holed out to Robin Uthappa off Archer at mid-on an over later.

But then skipper Iyer (53 off 43) joined hands with Dhawan (57 off 33) and the duo initially played cautiously before opening up to take DC forward.

They shared 85 runs for the third wicket off 55 balls to keep DC's momentum going after the early jolts.

Dhawan looked in great nick from the onset, often finding the boundary with his trademark pulls and shots square off the off side.

In the process he scored his 39th fifty in the IPL off just 30 balls but soon after reaching the feat he departed while trying to force the pacer, caught at short third man by Kartik Tyagi off leg-spinner Shreyas Gopal.

PITCH REPORT and TOSS PREDICTION: Win toss and bat

Pieterson said during pitch report that the weather is not as hot as it has been at Dubai. The pitch looked drier than it has been in the last three weeks in IPL 2020. Though, there is a little patches of grass. Kevin Pietersen and Pommie Mbangwa reckoned that 1.7 degree is the average turn in the tournament and yesterday's match had a 2.5 degree turn. Expect more from the spinners. You win toss and bat, it's that simple.

Alex Carey on Ben Stokes' return in RR playing 11

Delhi Capitals' Alex Carey said that the tournament is getting exctining now , we’ve played everyone once and we had a really good result against Rajasthan last time. They’ll have Ben Stokes in their side, which will strengthen them but I also think we’ve played some outstanding cricket.

Alex Carey on DC's injury woes

Carey said his team is definitely gutted due to the injuries in its camp, but is also looking forward to putting it behind them and peaking at the right time. “We have seen a fair few injuries in the short amount of time we have been here, so I don’t know what that is down to – maybe the lack of matches in the past six months. So yes, its disappointing news coming out of our camp but (we know we have) two great people (Amit Mishra & Ishant Sharma) who continue to cheer us on,” said Carey.

Delhi Capitals' injury woes

DC is placed second in the points table but Delhi do have worries. After losing the services of Amit Mishra and Ishant Sharma for the rest of the IPL, DC will have to hit the field also without Rishabh Pant, who has been sidelined for a week due to hamstring injury. Pant's absence was visible against Mumbai Indians (MI) as DC failed to post a total they deserved and ultimately were on the receiving end.

Key bowlers for Rajasthan Royals

In bowling, if fast bowler Jofra Archer is well-supported by Stokes, things would be quite difficult for any opposition as the duo is capable of troubling even the best batters in business.

Key batsmen for Rajasthan Royals

While RR have Sanju Samson and skipper Smith at the top, they would be much relieved after Rahul Tewatia and Riyan Parag's gritty show against SRH as the duo snatched a win from the jaws of defeat. Both need to keep the good show going, and with Stokes in the ranks, RR certainly boast a solid middle-order.

DC vs RR preview: Royals seek revenge in return game with DC

Rajasthan Royals (RR) will try and avenge the defeat they suffered at the hands of Delhi Capitals (DC) on October 9 when they meet today.
 
The Steve Smith-led RR are placed at the sixth place in the standings, and would hope for a spirited show in order to keep their play-offs hopes alive. On Wednesday, RR have a bright chance of settling scores against the Shreyas Iyer-led DC as they have their most lethal weapon, Ben Stokes, back in the side.
 
The England all-rounder, who opened the innings against SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH), would be hungry to deliver after a below-par show on Sunday, which was also his first game of the season.
 
It will be interesting to see if the RR think-tank once again asks Stokes to open the innings or send him to bat in the middle-order as his side lacks a genuine finisher or power-hitter there.
