Analysis: The top-four batsmen of the Capitals are terrifically exploiting. Prithvi, however, did not score better in two of the three matches, but he was stable in the remaining. Also, Dhawan, who is known to be an aggressive top-order batsman, can clinch what is needed for winning. Pant and Iyer will be adding up some runs along with Hetmyer whereas, their bowlers, especially Rabada, will be looking up to pick some big wickets.
Royals, who won their initial two matches, scored 200+ in both matches as they chased in their second game and targetted their opponent in the first. They were out of luck in the next two but their opening duo of Buttler-Smith will be looking forward to something big this time. Samson along with Parag can run-adding men in mid-overs. Whereas, the bowlers, Curran, Archer, and Ankit can contribute to grab the wickets.
