CAPTAINS’ TAKE:
Steve Smith (Rajasthan Royals):
I was gonna bat as well. Hopefully we can bowl well, restrict them and chase it later on. It’s obviously used wicket and hopefully we will put some pressure with the ball. We are playing the same team. And yes, Ben (Stokes) will open again.
Shreyas Iyer (Delhi Capitals):
We will bat first. It’s been dry and like we saw the other games, it’s holding a bit. We want to approach every game positively and we got really good bowling attack to execute our plans. We got good back-ups who can come and perform, we are definitely missing him (Pant). We got one change. Tushar Deshpande is making his debut for us and he comes in for Harshal Patel.
TOSS: Delhi Capitals captain Shreyas Iyer wins toss, opts to bat against Rajasthan Royals

Both the captains – Shreyas Iyer (DC) and Steve Smith (RR) are in the middle. It’s time for toss.
