  • IPL 2018 Live:Delhi Daredevils v  s Rajasthan Royals Playing eleven

After being put into bat, Rajasthan were 5-153 in 17.5 overs when rain stopped play for more than two hours before Delhi's target was revised on the D/L method. Rahul Tripathi was the last man standing and could have got the extra edge with his big hitting abilities but the rain halted the play and it was later made a decision to be put as a 6 over match with 71 being the revised target for Delhi Daredevils which Gautam Gambhir felt was a tough target to chase in Jaipur. Rajasthan's innings got off on a familiar note as D'Arcy Short was run out cheaply, just like in the first game.

He was picked from the Registered Available Player Pool list and this will be his first outing in the VIVO IPL.

Delhi will now face three-time champions Mumbai Indians in an away fixture on April 14 while Rajasthan will take on Royal Challengers Bangalore in Bengaluru a day later. We were very much happy with the first innings.

Delhi Daredevils: Gautam Gambhir (Captain), Shreyas Iyer, Sandeep Lamichhane, Manjot Kalra, Amit Mishra, Mohammed Shami, Chris Morris, Colin Munro, Shahbaz Nadeem, Naman Ojha, Rishabh Pant, Harshal Patel, Jason Roy, Vijay Shankar, Prithvi Shaw, Rahul Tewatia, Jayant Yadav, Abhishek Sharma, Avesh Khan, Trent Boult, Daniel Christian, Sayan Ghosh and Gurkeerat Singh Mann.




Smarting from a crushing defeat at the hands of Sunrisers Hyderabad in their opening IPL fixture, Rajasthan Royals looked to seek home comfort against Delhi Daredevils at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium.

"We thought 71 was hard to chase".

Even a year ago, Samson had started off with a bang for Delhi, but along with his side, his personal form also waned. Says Sanju Samson, "Feels really wonderful". The match was later on reduced to a 6-over affair; wherein Delhi required 71. We had to go from ball 1.

The veteran pacer's use of the slow delivery kept the batsmen on their toes at a time when they needed a boundary nearly every second ball. Obviously with these sort of games, things could go either way. Delhi bat deep and have the personnel who can use the bottom handle to good effect. DD's chase heavily depended on Glenn Maxwell who had joined the team ahead of this game.
