IPL Highlights, DC vs RR Highlights: Delhi Capitals Beat Rajasthan Royals By Five Wickets
IPL 2019, Delhi Capitals vs Rajasthan Royals Highlights: Riyan Parag became the youngest player to score a fifty in IPL history.
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)

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?

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.
