  • IPL 2018 Ajinkya Rahane Ben Laughlin Star As Rajasthan Royals Beat Delhi Daredevils By 10 Runs

Shahbaz Nadeem, who was drafted in for Amit Mishra, picked them up in quick succession, which brought the visitors into contention for a comeback.

Australian Short was attempting a second run when he hesitated slightly before Vijay Shankar made him pay with a direct hit from the deep in Jaipur on Tuesday. DD were subjected to a target of 70 runs in 6 overs, but they could only manage 60 runs for the loss of 4 wickets and the inning was over before anyone realized.

Though Delhi gave a good start in their last match against Kings XI Punjab, with Captain Gautam Gambhir the opening batsman scoring half century in the 1 innings with a total score of 166.

Roylas captain Ajinkya Rahane opened there innings with D'Arcy Shorts.

The hosts were dealt another blow in the fifth when their costliest buy Ben Stokes (16) was dismissed by Trent Boult with a beauty that moved away to just enough to take the outside edge. 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 chose 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. Had Glenn Maxwell got into his stride early, one can never deduce the kind of pressure that would have put on the Rajasthan camp.

Buttler (29) was clean bowled by Mohammad Shami just before the rain came. The match was stopped due to rain and the ground was covered. Thus, both the players and the fans are excitedly waiting for the match to begin at 8pm today.

Colin Munro is capable of producing the sort of fireworks Delhi needed but he was run out without facing a ball. By the time Munro realised what was happening and turned to get back to his crease, it was too late. Skipper Gautam Gambhir scored 55 runs off 42 balls while Rishabh Pant and Chris Morris made useful contributions of 28 and 27 runs, respectively.

In tonight's game, Sunrisers Hyderabad will look to continue the dream start they had in IPL 2018 when they welcome Mumbai Indians. RR, on the other hand, will now certainly be more relaxed with a victory.
