Delhi Capitals have not been able to win 2 matches in a row this season.
The first match of the season between Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Capitals ended in a controversial manner. The two teams would again square off in the 58th match of IPL 2022 on Wednesday. The Royals won the first game by 15 runs and would be hoping for a similar result. They defeated Punjab Kings in the last game by 6 wickets and it was their 7th win of the season.
Delhi Capitals, on the other hand, are going through an inconsistent run in the tournament with 5 wins in 11 matches. They have not been able to win 2 matches in a row this season. DC lost the last game to Chennai Super Kings by a huge margin of 91 runs which had a negative effect on their net run rate. From this position, DC needs to win each match to have a chance to qualify to the playoffs.
