3. Team of the Day

4. Powerplay Score
The match was set to be played at the MCA Stadium in Pune but has now been shifted to the Wankhede Stadium after Tim Seifert’s positive COVID-19 test.

The average powerplay score at this venue in this season has been 43.5. However, given the kind of form Rajasthan’s top-order has shown with orange cap holder Jos Buttler already having scored two tons, they would clear the 45-run mark in the first six overs and so will Delhi with players like David Warner and Prithvi Shaw at the top.
