The seventh match of the IPL 2021 will be played between the Delhi Capitals and the Rajasthan Royals. Rajasthan is still searching for their first win in this tournament, while Delhi Capitals has already begun with this tournament with a win. This match will be played on April 15, 2021, at Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium, so expect a high-scoring affair.
RR and DC have faced off in 22 previous matches, with both teams winning 11 of them. Despite the fact that the records show that both teams are equally strong, this does not appear to be the case based on previous tournament results. DC has been playing excellent cricket in recent years, whereas Rajasthan has lagged behind and finished last in the IPL 2020.
In IPL 2021, both of these teams have new captains, and it will be fascinating to see who wins. While Delhi Capitals' batsmen are in good shape, Rajasthan will need to make a few adjustments before facing the Capitals.

Rajasthan Royals has a solid squad on paper, but when it comes to executing plans, they have struggled repeatedly in the IPL. Though they lost by a narrow margin of 4 runs in their first IPL 2021 match against Punjab Kings, the batting order appeared to be poor and more dependent on Captain Sanju Samson to chase the mark. Heavyweights like Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler would need to do well if this team is to win the IPL in 2021. The absence of Jofra Archer in the early games would undoubtedly hurt RR's success in this tournament.
This team consists of experienced foreign players as well as young and talented domestic players. As a result, it is important for this squad that the experienced players step in and lead the young players to a win. Manan Vohra and Ben Stokes, the opening pair, will need to contribute more in the power-play overs to get their batting unit going. In place of Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler may be a better alternative to open the innings for RR. RR's middle order is supported by Sanju Samson and Jos Buttler, as well as young talents like Riyan Parag, Shivan Dube and Rahul Tewatia. Because of his ability to score runs rapidly, Chris Morris is an outstanding finisher in the lower middle order for RR.
The Rajasthan Royals have a powerful and varied bowling attack. This team's playing 11 had 8 of them bowling in their previous match. As a result, the Captain would have the advantage of having additional bowlers available in the match as required. Although the absence of Jofra Archer from this squad in the first few games would weaken this bowling attack. All-rounder bowling alternatives had bowled poorly, indicating that this team has a weaker link. Chetan Sakariya is a young talent who has performed admirably against the Punjab Kings and is expected to succeed in this tournament. This bowling unit's spin attack is led by Shreyas Gopal.
Key Players: Ben Stokes, Sanju Samson, Jos Buttler, Shreyas Gopal, Riyan Parag, Chetan Sakariya
Shivam Dube, Mustafizur Rahman, Jaydev Unadkat, M Vohra, Chetan Sakariya, Sanju Samson, Chris Morris, David Miller, Jos Buttler, R Tewatia, Riyan Parag
In recent IPL seasons, Delhi Capitals has emerged as one of the contenders for the IPL trophy, and this franchise has managed to turn its fortunes in this tournament. DC was a finalist in the IPL 2020 and is considered the favourite to win the IPL 2021. At the start of this tournament, the absence of Shreyas Iyer and a change in captaincy in the form of new captain Rishabh Pant appeared to be a challenge for this squad, but they overcame this difficulty and performed well as a team in their first match against CSK.
The Delhi Capitals have a deep and solid batting order, with Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Rishabh Pant, and Ajinkya Rahane among the team's prominent batsmen. The opening pair of Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw are in excellent form, putting on a 100-run partnership in their first match against CSK. This batting order also includes explosive hitters like Marcus Stoinis, Shimron Hetmyer, Tom Curran and Chris Woakes.
Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje's inclusion in this team has improved their bowling unit, and DC now has one of the best bowling units in the tournament. This team's senior spin pair, Ravichandran Ashwin and Amit Mishra, have been effective in claiming wickets. Avesh Khan is a young fast bowling talent who has bowled well and is another fast bowling choice for the bowling attack.
Key Players: Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Rishabh Pant, Marcus Stonis, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Ravichandran Ashwin.
Ajinkya Rahane, Marcus Stoinis, CR Woakes, Lalit Yadav, Ravichandran Ashwin, Avesh Khan, Prithvi Shaw, Kagiso Rabada, Rishabh Pant, Shikhar Dhawan, Tom Curran
