Steve Smith, Shreyas Iyer, RR vs DC, IPL 2019, Indian Premier League
Delhi Capitals are third on the table with 12 points from 10 matches, while Rajasthan Royals are languishing at the penultimate spot in the eight-team league with six points from three matches.

Shreyas Iyer won the toss and Delhi Capitals have opted to field in search of an away win once again as they lock horns with Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League (IPL 2019) at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur on Monday.

Steve Smith will be leading the Royals in his second game of the season following the abrupt sacking of Ajinkya Rahane.

Delhi Capitals made one change with Nepalese spinner Sandeep Lamicchane making way for Chris Morris, while the home side will be playing the same XI that won them a clinical match against Mumbai Indians.

Here are the playing XIs:

Rajasthan Royals (Playing XI): Ajinkya Rahane, Sanju Samson (w), Steven Smith (c), Ben Stokes, Riyan Parag, Ashton Turner, Stuart Binny, Shreyas Gopal, Jofra Archer, Jaydev Unadkat, Dhawal Kulkarni

Delhi Capitals (Playing XI): Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer (c), Rishabh Pant (w), Colin Ingram, Chris Morris, Sherfane Rutherford, Axar Patel, Kagiso Rabada, Amit Mishra, Ishant Sharma

Captains have their say at the toss:

Steve Smith: “Looks better than most of the surfaces we’ve seen here. I would have bowled first as well because we don’t know if dew will be a factor but well, have to bat first and bat well. We haven’t played as well as we would have liked here, or anywhere for that matter. Hopefully, we can take confidence from that and move forward. We’re unchanged!” (LIVE, Rajasthan Royals vs Delhi Capitals)

Shreyas Iyer: “We’re gonna bowl first. Majority of the sides have won chasing here, so we’re going by that. Our side likes chasing these days and that gives confidence for us. One change- Morris in for Lamichhane”

Delhi Capitals are third on the table with 12 points from 10 matches, while Rajasthan Royals are languishing at the penultimate spot in the eight-team league with six points from three matches.
