Delhi Capitals (DC) have won their last league match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) season against Rajasthan Royals (RR) by 5 wickets and 3.5 overs to spare at the Feroz Shah Kotla in Delhi on Saturday. The DC chase, despite several bumps, was propelled by a responsible innings from Rishabh Pant (53*), who played his way in and batted with the lower order and then finally burst into life with the finish line in sight. Ish Sodhi (3/26) and Shreyas Gopal (2/21) had made early inroads into the DC batting order to make their chase of 116 more difficult that it had appeared it would. RR had scored 115/9 in their 20 overs. Winning the toss, Rajasthan Royals captain Ajinkya Rahane decided his team would bat first. Ishant Sharma (3/38) got the home team off to a perfect start, capturing the wickets of openers Rahane (2) and Liam Livingstone (14) in successive overs. Sanju Samson (5) was run out after a mix-up with his partner Mahipal Lomror (8) as wickets kept falling. Amit Mishra (3/17) then came up with a killer blow, taking two wickets in consecutive balls - Shreyas Gopal (12) and Stuart Binny (0) falling to him in successive balls. He could have captured a hat-trick as well, which would have been his third in IPL history, but Trent Boult missed an easy catch. Young Riyan Parag (50) anchored the RR innings, even taking 18 runs off Ishant's last over. He never had any partners sticking with him for long enough though, as only Livingstone and Shreyas Gopal managed to reach double figures. He hit Trent Boult for two sixes in the 20th over to bring up his fifty, thus becoming the youngest player in IPL history to score a fifty.  (SCORECARD)

  • 19:18 (IST)May 04, 2019
    Gets to his fifty as well. Talk about finishing it in style! DC win by 5 wickets with 3.5 overs to spare.
  • 19:16 (IST)May 04, 2019
    Six number 87 for Pant. Six monster! DC need 2 to win.
  • 19:13 (IST)May 04, 2019
  • 19:12 (IST)May 04, 2019
  • 19:11 (IST)May 04, 2019
    Shreyas Gopal gets another wicket. Livingstone takes a nice catch. That went up very high. DC lose their fifth wicket. Need 10 more runs off 28 balls as we head into a Timeout. Keemo Paul had walked off the field in the first innings. Will he pad up now? Or will Axar Patel be sent out?
  • 19:10 (IST)May 04, 2019
    DC want to finish this quickly.
  • 19:09 (IST)May 04, 2019
    16 runs off Aaron's over. DC need just 16 more runs to win. Pant moves on to 39. What a point he has made today. Responsible, measured innings. Going for the kill now.
  • 19:08 (IST)May 04, 2019
    Swiveled and hit over the fine leg boundary for six. Varun Aaron's over has been expensive. Expense the RR team can ill afford at this stage.
  • 19:03 (IST)May 04, 2019
    Three runs and one wicket in Ish Sodhi's third over. DC need 32 off 36 balls. Shreyas Gopal and Ish Sodhi both have one over remaining. Varun Aaron has three overs left. Could we have a twist in the tail in this match? DC and RR are the two teams who have been most susceptible to late nervous breakdowns this season.
  • 19:00 (IST)May 04, 2019
    Pant is not so lucky. Ish Sodhi gets his third wicket. Ball struck Ingram's wrist and looped up. Rahane, standing at first slip, went around the keeper to grab the catch. DC 83/4 after 13.4 overs. Rutherford the new man in.
  • 18:59 (IST)May 04, 2019
    Pant tried to take Ish Sodhi on and almost regretted it. Ball goes up high and not very far but luckily for the batsman, lands in no man's land.
  • 18:57 (IST)May 04, 2019
    DC 81/3 after 13 overs. Need 35 more runs in 42 balls. Required run rate 5 runs per over. Pant and Ingram should be looking to finish this job themselves. A few quick wickets could still turn this match around, given the nature of this track.
  • 18:54 (IST)May 04, 2019
    Another stunning spell by Shreyas Gopal. 1/6 in his three overs so far. DC need 39 off 48 balls.
  • 18:50 (IST)May 04, 2019
    Rishabh Pant is playing an unusual innings. 24 off 23 balls. Strike rate just above 100. Historic in its own little way, this innings. Ingram is with him, on 9 off 16 balls.
  • 18:46 (IST)May 04, 2019
    DC move to 70/3. Pant and Ingram knocking the ball around for ones and twos. Sensible approach.
  • 18:42 (IST)May 04, 2019
    Gowtham concedes just three runs in his second over. Ingram happy to set his eye in before bringing out his shots. Now that the NRR equation can be thrown out of the window, the DC batsmen will want to bat safely and surely. So that they can ensure the two points at least.
  • 18:41 (IST)May 04, 2019
    The two Guyana boys, Rutherford and Keemo Paul, are slotted to come in after this. However, Ingram needs a big score. DC need 52 runs off 70 balls. Looks like the target of finishing the chase in the first 10 overs can be safely discounted now.
  • 18:35 (IST)May 04, 2019
    Shreyas gets Shreyas! Gopal gets Iyer out. DC 61/3. Could RR get their way back into the match from here on? Ingram's form has not been the best. Pant's wicket will be crucial.
  • 18:32 (IST)May 04, 2019
    Rishabh Pant punishing Parag in this over. That landed just outside the rope. 67 metres. That would have been a four in most grounds.
  • 18:31 (IST)May 04, 2019
    Pant gets down on his knees and slams Parag on to the leg side. Flat six.
  • 18:30 (IST)May 04, 2019
    Has shone with the bat as well as in the field today already. Can he do the trick with the ball in hand as well? A wicket here could really get RR back into the game.
  • 18:27 (IST)May 04, 2019
    Pant gets off the mark with a four. DC finally looking to shake off the shock Ish Sodhi inflicted on them with his double strike. 
  • 18:25 (IST)May 04, 2019
    Hits the very next ball even further. Almost in the same area. Iyer going for the kill!
  • 18:24 (IST)May 04, 2019
    Shreyas Iyer hits Ish Sodhi down the ground for a maximum. Cleanly hit.
  • 18:23 (IST)May 04, 2019
    One run off Gopal's over. Rishabh Pant has faced 9 balls without scoring. How often have we seen that!
  • 18:19 (IST)May 04, 2019
    DC stuck on 28/2. Pant watching the ball very closely and very suspiciously. This match could get interesting. When will Shreyas Gopal, the man in form, be introduced by Rahane?
  • 18:18 (IST)May 04, 2019
    Two almost-hat-tricks in this match, how often have we seen that! Amit Mishra in the first innings, Sodhi here. Pant defends the hat-trick ball safely. Pant and Iyer at the crease. DC need to re-evaluate their approach a bit.
  • 18:15 (IST)May 04, 2019
    Ish Sodhi is turning this match on its head! Another wicket! Two in two balls. DC 28/2 after 3.2 overs
  • 18:14 (IST)May 04, 2019
    Dhawan perishes in the attempt to hit another big shot. Riyan Parag with the catch (this boy seems to be everywhere!), Ish Sodhi with the wicket. DC lose their first wicket.
  • 18:12 (IST)May 04, 2019
    Three boundaries and one single in that Oshane Thomas over. DC are starting to look like they are chasing this down with the run rate factor in mind. 28/0 after 3 overs.
  • 18:10 (IST)May 04, 2019
    Beautiful shot for four. Dhawan is on song today. Oshane Thomas is bearing the brunt of his confident strokes.
  • 18:09 (IST)May 04, 2019
    Oshane Thomas into the attack and welcomed with open arms by Dhawan. Lofted over point for four.
  • 18:06 (IST)May 04, 2019
    Off Dhawan's pads. Runs past the keeper for four. DC 15/0 after 2 overs
  • 18:03 (IST)May 04, 2019
    Three runs each for Dhawan and Shaw. Varun Aaron bowling the second over.
  • 18:03 (IST)May 04, 2019
    If DC can chase down this target within 10 overs, they can leapfrog CSK and MI on net run rate. The race for the top two spots in the table is well and truly alive.
  • 17:59 (IST)May 04, 2019
  • 17:57 (IST)May 04, 2019
    Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan come out to the middle for DC. Krishnappa Gowtham bowling the first over.
  • 17:44 (IST)May 04, 2019
    Goes for a big shot off the last ball. Is caught in the deep. Rajasthan Royals score 115/9 in their 20 overs. Riyan Parag has brought some semblance of respectability to this total. Will DC chase this down easily or does skipper Rahane have a trick or two up his sleeve?
