Rajasthan are currently fourth in the table, level on points with second-placed Royal Challengers Bangalore who have played a game more. Paddy Upton's men have won three of their last four matches and enter this tie after beating Pune Warriors by six wickets on Sunday, chasing down a target of 178.

Meanwhile the Daredevils, who were table-toppers last season, had a disappointing campaign this year and sit at the bottom of the table, only above Pune. Delhi suffered an embarrassing six-wicket loss at Hyderabad on Saturday, after collapsing for a meagre total of 80. Eric Simon's men only have a mathematical possibility of qualifying to the play-offs now.

Delhi hold a 6-5 advantage in the previous 11 meetings between these two sides. The reverse fixture last month saw the Royals winning by five runs, after posting a target of 165, courtesy of an impressive last over bowled by Kevon Cooper.
