Match Ended   
207/8 (20.0/20)
222/2 (20.0/20)
Rajasthan Royals beat Delhi Capitals by 15 runs
Right then. That’s it from the coverage of this game. The Indian T20 League action continues on 23rd April, where we have a double header coming up. The first game sees Gujarat take on Kolkata at 3.30 pm IST (10 am GMT) and later Bangalore will face Hyderabad at 7.30 pm IST (2 pm GMT). But as you all know, you can join us early for the build-up. Till then take care and goodbye!
Jos Buttler is the Player of the Match. He says it was a really special knock, a special stadium as his first season was with Mumbai. He hopes his form continues as it is crucial to have the momentum, they need to soak the pressure early on and then the confidence will build. Tells that Devdutt Padikkal batted brilliantly as well from the other end. Informs there was no dew, the wickets may change and everyone will need to adapt as the tournament goes on.
Sanju Samson the skipper of Rajasthan says that it was a full toss ball and the batter hit a six, but the opposition wanted a no ball, but the umpire made his decision very clear. Mentions that they wanted to put a smile on Obed McCoy's face, it's never easy to be hit for three sixes and come back stronger in the other three balls. Adds that when there is someone like Rovman Powell at the other end, they just had to remain calm, and trust their teammates. States that at some point in the tournament they would like to chase as well, but it's okay to lose the toss for now. Adds that there was not much dew, but our spinners are bowling exceptionally well. On Yuzvendra Chahal's drop catch, he says that it's okay to drop a catch, these things happen, but the main thing is to overcome those things and remain calm and that's what Yuzi did. He bowled a very good over after that as well. On Devdutt Padikkal's knock, he says that it was a crucial knock and even the 20s and 30s which he has made have been crucial as well.
Stay tuned for the presentation...
Ravichandran Ashwin is down for a chat! He says that Devdutt Padikkal was standing nearby and asked that it is not happening right? Tells that the coach came and changed the momentum for them. Adds that the ground is small and so they can't really say what was a good score. Says understanding the game is really crucial and in Chahal, they have a good understanding and hopes it continues the same. On dew, he says there was not much and hopes it remains the same for future games.
Rishabh Pant the skipper of Delhi, says that they were bowling well but Powell batted well and gave them a chance, they wanted to review the no ball and he says, the third umpire should have interfered in between to check the delivery. He says it was not good to send someone on the ground but it was a no ball and was shown on the big screen, he cannot change the rules of the game. Tells that they should have bowled a little better and they will now focus on the next game.
Consecutive wins for Rajasthan! They have yet again defended a healthy total. They did leak runs throughout the innings but made sure to grab wickets at regular intervals. Ravichandran Ashwin was excellent, he picked up two vital wickets. But Prasidh Krishna was the leader of the pack, he grabbed 3 wickets in his spell. Not to forget, he bowled a wicket-maiden in the 19th over and turned the tide towards them. That was probably the turning point. Obed McCoy was expensive, but he held his nerve once again and helped his side get over the line eventually. With this victory, Rajasthan move to the top of the table!
Delhi started the chase well with David Warner and Prithvi Shaw scoring runs freely. But David Warner perished within the Powerplay! Rishabh Pant and Prithvi Shaw carried on to score runs but they too could not hold on and were dismissed when they tried to up the ante. Lalit Yadav and Rovman Powell got the game right till the last over, but there were too many runs to get at the end. Delhi probably could have sent Rovman Powell earlier and things could have been different. Nevertheless, they fought well but fell short in the end.
Drama, and entertainment at its absolute best! We have witnessed yet another game going down the wire. But it's Rajasthan who held their nerve and have clinched the game here. Back-to-back wins for Rajasthan! Agony for Delhi though!
