IPL 2018, RR Vs DD: Delhi 153/6; Rains Stopped Play

Image result for Delhi Daredevils

Sanju Samson scored 47 runs in 42 balls, but the remaining batsmen failed to support him as the side collapsed and ended up at 125/9 in 20 overs.

Ajinkya Rahane, the Rajasthan Royals captain, would have chosen to field as well.

Heavy rain lashed the Rajasthan capital as the IPL match became a curtailed affair. However, as soon as the rain stopped, play was resumed courtesy some good work by the ground staff. The home fans, however, had something to cheer about as their team clinched the game against Delhi Daredevils by 10 runs (DLS). Ajinkya Rahane and Ben Stokes steadied the innings, but while trying to up the ante the Englishman edged one to Pant off Trent Boult in the fifth over. Delhi got off to a horrendous start after a mix-up between Glenn Maxwell and Colin Munro in the first ball of the innings, resulting in the latter's run out.

After the end of the 17th over, RR managed to gather 18 runs with the help of two sixes and a four and the score turned to 144/4. "There has not been much cricket on it but we have tried hard to sustain grass on it because it is this ingrown grass which binds the soil of the wicket", veteran curator Taposh Chatterjee said. DD had a miserable score of 0/1 in 0.1 overs and they never recovered from that. Skipper Gautam Gambhir chose to demote himself down the batting order as he sent big-hitters like Maxwell, Chris Morris and Vijay Shankar before him.

Earlier, Rajasthan rode Rahane's 45 to get to 153/5 when the skied opened up in the 17th over with Rahul Tripathi (15) and Krishnappa Gowtham (2) at the crease. Glen Maxwell and Rishabh Pant performed in patches and hit a few shots here and there.

The Houthis have repeatedly targeted the kingdom in retaliation for its offensive inside Yemen. The facility reportedly belonged to the oil massive Saudi Aramco.

The 17th over bowled by Morris leaked 18 runs, turning out to be the most expensive over of the innings. Gambhir sent in Chris Morris to bat.

As we go according to the head to head count, RR has defeated DD in their last six encounters.

Laughlin was then tasked with bowling the last over in which Delhi needed 25 runs to win the contest.

Dhawal Kulkarni used slower deliveries cleverly and gave away just five runs in the second over. The young wicket-keeper batsman, who has been earmarked as a potential successor to MS Dhoni behind the stumps in India's national line-up, did his stocks no harm after smashing two fours and two sixes to steady the ship for Rajasthan after coming in at 2-28. Rajasthan had a horror start to their IPL campaign as they lost to Sunrisers Hyderabad in their opening match.
