  • Indian youngsters namely PP Shaw, RR Pant and Delhi’s captain Shreyas Iyer showcased their skills to put 196 runs on the scoreboard.
  • On the other hand, Rajasthan bowlers were pretty average as no bowler seemed to be in control of the match.
  • Royals now needed 197 runs to win this match from 18 overs. However, rain came again and the revised target now became 151 runs from 12 overs. The Royals started off their innings in a blazing fashion as Jose Buttler went berserk on Delhi’s bowlers. Short supported his partner as he also contributed valuable runs on the scoreboard.
  • However, Delhi’s bowlers pushed to the very last ball and succeeded in retaining Rajasthan to 146 runs. The Royals lost the match by only 4 runs.
  • The credit goes to Delhi Daredevils who did a collective effort as a team to rise from the bottom of the table.
