Delhi Daredevils vs Rajasthan Royals latest updates: Hello and welcome to CricketCountry’s live coverage of VIVO IPL  2018, Match 32. The match will see Shreyas Iyer’s Delhi Daredevil (DD) take on Ajinkya Rahane-led Rajasthan Royals (RR). The match will be played at Ferozshah Kotla in Delhi. We will be bringing you the live updates, interesting tweets and stat facts from the cyberspace. The last time these two sides met, RR piped DD in a rain-curtailed tie by 10 runs.

This time Iyer will lead DD. Under him, Delhi have shown improvement in batting and bowling. They won against Kolkata Knight Riders, and lost a narrow match against Chennai Super Kings (CSK). Indian domestic talents like Prithvi Shaw and Vijay Shankar have finally announced themselves on the big stage. Their bowling too has been slowly getting into a groove with the introduction of Liam Plunkett.

RR, on the other hand, find themselves in a tough position in the points table. They need to win most of their upcoming games to have a shot at playoffs. Money-spenders like Ben Stokes and Jaydev Unadkat continue to be a disappointment.  Sanju Samson and Jofra Archer have been single-handedly carrying them to victory.

Delhi Daredevils vs Rajasthan Royals Squads:

RR: Ajinkya Rahane, Sanju Samson, Jos Buttler, Heinrich Klaasen, Ben Stokes, Stuart Binny, Rahul Tripathi, Dhawal Kulkarni, Jaydev Unadkat, Ankit Sharma, Anureet Singh, Shreyas Gopal, Ben Laughlin, Dushmantha Chameera

DD: Gautam Gambhir, Rishabh Pant, Naman Ojha, Shreyas Iyer, Chris Morris, Glenn Maxwell, Jason Roy, Colin Munro, Mohammed Shami, Amit Mishra, Rahul Tewatia, Vijay Shankar, Harshal Patel, Aavesh Khan, Shahbaz Nadeem, Daniel Christian, Jayant Yadav, Gurkeerat Singh, Trent Boult
