The chase will be interesting as Delhi would still back themselves, knowing the quality and depth in their bowling. They know Mumbai restricted Hyderabad to under 180 at Sharjah earlier and would look to take a leaf out of that. Smith though would favour a win as this is familiar hunting ground for Rajasthan. Stay tuned for a cracker of a chase...
Rahul Tewatia is in for a chat. He says that when he saw the pitch, he realized that he needed to vary the pace and mix up the lines and lengths. Adds that he was just planning to not give much time to the batters and push the ball towards the batters. Says that Hetmyer's catch was an important one and for a minute, he misjudged that but is pleased to take it in the end. States that the target is chaseable.
Rajasthan bowlers would be very happy with their performance. Archer was the pick of the bowlers as usual, 3/24 in his 4 overs. Kartik, Tye and Tewatia got 1 apiece. Tye though went for plenty in his maiden outing this season. The spinners bowled well. They kept it short and did not toss up much, knowing pretty well they could be hammered in this short ground. Overall, a very disciplined effort from Smith's men with the ball and in the field as well, effecting brilliant run outs.
Hetmyer got going and it looked like Delhi could count on him today. He did bat well but got out after an excellent 45 off 24. Normally a great knock, but today his team needed more. Axar Patel made a good cameo towards the end but Delhi would be disappointed with the way they have gone about.
How you start matters and that proved to the case in the end. Three dangerous batters - Shaw, Dhawan and Iyer were contained without much damage conceded. 3 wickets down at the end of the Powerplay and quite unlike Delhi. But then Pant and Stoinis were in the middle. Fireworks expected naturally. Pant however fell cheaply. Stoinis was looking dangerous but departed after making 39 off 30.
Brilliant finish for Rajasthan. They sent Delhi in to bat and have curtailed them to well under 200. A minor scare towards the end, especially as Tye's last over leaked 22 runs. But in the end, Rajasthan would feel very happy on the restriction.
