Delhi Daredevils put their campaign back on track after a thrilling 4-run win (DLS method) over Rajasthan Royals in their Indian Premier League clash on Wednesday. In a run-truncated match, Rajasthan were chasing 151 runs in 12 overs and got off to a flier with Jos Buttler hammering the Delhi bowlers all over the park. Buttler hit 67 runs off 26 runs with seven maximums and 4 boundaries. D Arcy Short (44) gave some glimmer of hope in the latter stages but Delhi bowlers were right on the money. Trent Boult (2/26) was the pick of the bowlers for Delhi. (SCORECARD)
Earlier, skipper Shreyas Iyer and stumper Rishabh Pant smashed rollicking half-centuries to power Delhi Daredevils to a massive 196/6 in 17.1 overs against Rajasthan Royals in a rain-truncated Indian Premier League (IPL) match at the Ferozshah Kotla here on Wednesday. Pant (69 off 29 balls; 4x7, 6x5) and Iyer (50 off 35; 4x3, 6x3) capitalised on a brilliant start by teenaged sensation Prithvi Shaw (47 off 25 balls; 4x4, 6x4) as Delhi overcame the early loss of opener Colin Munro in the opening over. After heavy rain delayed the start of play by one and a half hours, resulting in the match being reduced to 18 overs a side, pacer Dhawal Kulkarni provided the visitors a perfect start with the wicket of the Kiwi, caught behind on a duck. Rajasthan's ploy of opting to field after winning the toss, was however soon dismissed by the 18-year-old Prithvi, who combined with his skipper to smoke 73 runs for the second wicket in mere 40 balls.
