The most successful opening pair of IPL 5 has added fifty-run stand in just 5 overs to lay down a solid foundation for the hosts.
Earlier, Rajasthan skipper Rahul Dravid won the toss and decided to bat against Delhi on Tuesday.
A low-on-morale Royals are looking to make amends against the formidable Daredevils just 48 hours after losing a close away game.
Rajasthan are eager to put behind the disappointment of Sunday’s defeat when the Daredevils pulled off a dramatic one-run win from the jaws of defeat.
The Royals have lost three matches on the trot and are looking at Australia’s prolific all-rounder Shane Watson, who has joined the squad, to boost up the morale of the side and put it back on the winning track.
Skipper Rahul Dravid had earlier said that the arrival of Watson would lend balance to the side as he was the mainstay of the Royals’ triumph in the first edition of the IPL.
On the other hand, Delhi, having won seven out of nine matches, are looking to carry on the momentum.
The fact that they won last night’s match only in the closing overs would play on their minds and the visitors would be wanting to register a more convincing victory.
The Daredevils are aware of the glorious uncertainties of Twenty20 cricket and would be more cautious against the Royals.
