On the other hand RR back on their lucky ground will attempt for their third win of the season.
RR is on a three-match losing streak but is back on their happy-hunting ground where they have registered two wins from as many games.
RR kicked off their IPL 2020 campaign in style, beating Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) in Sharjah. However, the Steve Smith-led unit were beaten by Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Mumbai Indians (MI) across Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
DC, meanwhile, have won four games out of five. Shreyas Iyer and Co. started their campaign with a thrilling Super Over-win against KXIP before coming out on top against CSK. While Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) denied DC a hat-trick of wins, the Delhi franchise bounced back strongly, beating KKR and RCB in the subsequent games.
With victory over Royals, DC will back on top spot of the IPL 2020 points table.
