It is like another and another loss for Delhi Capital. Yesterday, the IPL 2024 hosted the 9th match of the league. Both teams, Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Capitals went to the ground to play their second match of the league. Rajasthan Royals bagged the match 12 runs and also bagged the 2nd consecutive win for their franchise. Let’s focus on the highlights of the match to understand it better. Stay with to get all the updates on time.

When was the match?

The match was played on 28th March at Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur, starting at 7:30 PM.

Who won the toss?

Delhi Capitals won the toss and opted to bowl first. As the data from the stadium shows that most of the matches were bagged by the chasing team, we hoped that Delhi Capitals would be able to bag this match. However, it didn’t happen.

What are the highlights?

Delhi Capitals batters made us utterly disappointed. Only David Warner, Tristan Stubbs, and Rishabh Pant would be able to stay on the pitch for a while. Apart from that, no one was able to take the baton. However, even they failed to make a long-term partnership as well.  David Warner scored 49 runs, Tristan Stubbs scored 49* runs & Rishabh Pant scored 28 runs. 

David Warner fell to Avesh Khan on 49 after which Pant was dismissed by Chahal for 28 off 26 balls. Tristan Stubbs gave DC a glimmer of hope towards the end but it was too late by then. Stubbs stayed unbeaten on 44 off 23 and Delhi Capitals were restricted to a score of 173/5 in 20 over

If we talk about the bowlers of the Delhi Capitals, Khaleel Ahmed, Khaleel Ahmed, Anrich Nortje, Axar Patel, and Kuldeep Yadav, clinched one wicket each.

For Rajasthan Royals, Riyan Parag played outstandingly. Riyan Parag scored an unbeaten 84 runs in 45 deliveries. This ensured the win for the team.  Parag scored 25 runs in the last over bowled by Anrich Nortje and finished unbeaten on 84 off 45 balls.

In the bowling department, Nandre Burger and Yuzvendra Chahal picked two wickets each, while Avesh Khan picked one wicket.

What does the captain say about this defeat:

This is the second consecutive defeat for Delhi Capitals and Rishabh has to take responsibility.

Pant said:

“Definitely disappointed. The best thing we can do from this is learn from it. The bowlers did really well till 15-16 overs, batters sometimes go on at the death and score quickly, that happened in this game. Marsh and Warner gave a good start, but we lost a few wickets in the middle overs and in the end, we had too many runs to cover up.” He added, “There are other options, we wanted Nortje to bowl at the death and sometimes you can go for runs, hopefully, we can do better in the next match.”

Let’s have a recap:

●       Riyan Parag hit an unbeaten 84 off 45 balls and led Rajasthan Royals to a 12-run win over Delhi Capitals

●       This is the second consecutive win for RR

●       Delhi struggled against spinner Yuzvendra Chahal (2-19) in the middle overs

●       Rajasthan ran into early trouble inside the batting power play when Yashasvi Jaiswal was clean bowled by Mukesh Kumar

●       Fast bowler Khaleel Ahmed then reduced Rajasthan to 36-3 when he had skipper Sanju Samson caught behind in the eighth over

●       Australian pair of David Warner (49) and Mitchell Marsh (23) provided Delhi with a rollicking start

●       Burger clean bowled Marsh with a pacey swinging delivery before Ricky Bhui couldn’t get out of the way from a quick bouncer
