Right then! That's all from this game but don't go anywhere as it is a Super Saturday and that means it is a double-header. The second game is between Hyderabad and Punjab at Sharjah. That match will begin at 6 pm local (2 pm GMT). Do join us for that. Cheers and take care.
Shreyas Iyer is the Man of the Match for his fine batting performance.
Anrich Nortje is there for a chat. He says that the pitch was quite slow and they tried to hit the good length. Adds that the bowlers collectively did a great job. Adds that it depends on what to bowl, yorker or bouncers but he likes the former one. Adds that they are trying to work hard as the games are coming thick and fast.
Sanju Samson, the Rajasthan skipper, says that looking at a wicket it was a chaseable target but they kept losing wickets and lost the momentum. Adds that they will come back stronger. Says that they will like to take some time off and think about the changes. Says the pitch was holding a bit much and adds if they had waited a bit more, things could have been different.
Earlier, in the game, after being put into bat, Delhi posted a par score on the board. There were some useful contributions from Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant and from the lower order helped Delhi reach 154. The bowling from Rajasthan was decent and they might have thought they will be able to chase this score down but it was not to be as their batting succumbed to pressure.
The bowling from Delhi was excellent! Avesh Khan continues to impress in this tournament and he started it well. Anrich Nortje was pacy as usual and he had another good game with the ball. Kagiso Rabada too was decent while the spinners strangled the Rajasthan batsmen with their tight lines and lengths. They did not give anything away and were simply terrific with the ball. Overall, a very good outing for Delhi.
Rajasthan never got going with the bat as they lost Liam Livingstone and Yashasvi Jaiswal early. David Miller too did not last long and runs were hard to come by. They hit their first boundary after the Powerplay and that tells you a story. Sanju Samson played a fine hand but he received little to no support and with the required run rate rising, it was always going to be a difficult task for Samson to do it all himself. In the end, it was a tough outing.
A fine win for Delhi! They have continued their winning run and they move back to the top of the table. More importantly, they have more or less, secured their place in the playoffs. Rajasthan, on the other hand, will be disappointed with the effort and now need to make a strong comeback in their upcoming games in order to make it to the playoffs.
