The 23rd match of IPL 2020 will be held at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium, played between Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Capitals. The match will be kicked off on 9th October (Friday) at 20:00 (GMT+6).
It seemed as if fish were taken out of the water every time the Rajasthan Royals played away from Sharjah this season. Rajasthan Royals played their next three matches in Dubai and Abu Dhabi after winning their first two matches comprehensively. In both these venues, the team struggled to adapt to the conditions and thus bagged a hat-trick of defeats. They seem to be in a spot of trouble at this stage with only two wins from five matches. But the positive for them is that they are going to return to Sharjah to play this match against the Delhi Capitals.
Rajasthan Royals would like to bring their derailed campaign back on track by playing in conditions where they were successful earlier. But against the Delhi Capitals, it would not be an easy task for them. With 4 wins out of 5 matches, the young team was phenomenal this season. They also recorded a major victory against the Royal Challengers Bangalore in their last encounter. They will be very confident to come into this game and aim to continue with the winning momentum.
On Friday, It’ll be a hot day in Sharjah, and the humidity levels will be quite high. A strong wind will blow around at the venue as well.
This is an absolute belter of a track to bat on in Sharjah. Although the scores were not as high in the match between Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad, it is still a great track and if they are to restrict the rival, the bowlers should get their yorkers right.
Average first innings score: 219 (So far at this venue in IPL 2020)

Rajasthan Royals vs Delhi Capitals Dream11:
Sanju Samson (C), Rishabh Pant (vc), Jos Buttler, Shreyas Iyer, Shimron Hetmyer, Steve Smith, Rahul Tewatia, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Jofra Archer, Kartik Tyagi
In the last three matches, both Sanju Samson and Steve Smith did not perform well. But in Sharjah, they perform brilliantly and must be a part of your Dream11 team. The last time Kagiso Rabada played in Sharjah, he went for 51 runs in his four overs. When choosing him, the credits are also a constraint. Therefore, he is only selected in the Grand League team.
