In the DY Patil Sports Academy, Rajasthan Royals (RR) faced Delhi Capitals (DC) in match number 58 of the Tata Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022. The Delhi Capitals (DC) won by eight wickets, chasing the target in just 18.1 overs, in a low-scoring match between the two sides.
Delhi captain Rishabh Pant chose to bowl first after winning the toss. DC got off to a great start as they got Jos Buttler in the third over. R Ashwin was elevated to lead the innings, and the right-handed batsman did an excellent job, scoring a half-century.
Meanwhile, wickets started falling on the other side. Devdutt Padikkal showed some fight by scoring 48 runs off 30 deliveries, but he couldn’t stop the wickets from falling.
As a result, Rajasthan Royals (RR) could only manage 160 runs in their allotted 20 overs, losing six wickets.
It’s never easy to chase a low total, especially on slower tracks. Trent Boult removed Srikar Bharat for a 2-ball duck in the first over, as DC lost their first wicket. Following a couple of excellent overs from Rajasthan, David Warner and Mitchell Marsh conducted a rescue mission and got DC back on track.
After settling in, the two Australians began adding runs on every opportunity presented by the opposition. Marsh was the aggressor, scoring 89 off 62 balls, while Warner anchored the innings with an unbeaten 52 off 41 deliveries.
In the 18th over, skipper Rishabh Pant hit two enormous sixes to Yuzvendra Chahal, securing a crucial two points for his team.
