Shreyas Iyer | DC skipper
We will bat first. It’s been dry and like we saw the other games, it’s holding a bit. We want to approach every game positively and we got a really good bowling attack to execute our plans. We got good back-ups who can come and perform, we are definitely missing him (Pant). We got one chance. Tushar Deshpande is making his debut for us and he comes in for Harshal Patel.
Steve Smith | RR skipper
I was gonna bat as well. Hopefully, we can bowl well, restrict them, and chase it later on. It’s obviously a used wicket and hopefully, we will put some pressure with the ball. We are playing with the same team. And yes, Ben (Stokes) will open again.

DC vs RR Highlights
Delhi Capitals(DC) Batting
Prithvi Shaw and Dhawan get in to the crease to lead DC. Jofra Archer dismissed Shaw off the first delivery and makes a shocking moment for DC. Ajinkya Rahane gets in to join hands with Dhawan.
Archer with a length ball off his second over dismissed the struggled Rahane while scoring 2 runs off 9 deliveries. With back-to-back wickets, DC seems to get in trouble but Dhawan is in strike who is capable of dragging the team towards a perfect score.
DC skipper Iyer and Dhawan drags the team as expected where Dhawan makes his half-century in just 30 balls. A much needed fifty for DC at this position. After a massive six Dhawan walks to Pavillion after scoring 57 runs off 33 deliveries.
With a mixture of boundaries and wickets, DC scored 161 runs for 7 wicket loss.
Rajasthan Royals(RR) Batting
Again RR follows the same opening duo by sending Stokes and Buttler gets in to the crease to lead RR. The duo starts to strike aggressively but soon dismissed in back to back overs. As Nortje dismissed Buttler while scoring 22 runs off 9 deliveries and Ashwin dismissed Smith while scoring 1 run.
With Stokes and Samson’s impressive innings RR scored 85 runs for 2 wicket loss at the end of the 10th over. In the next over Tushar Deshpande dismissed Stokes and followed by Samson’s dismissal by Axar makes a huge blow for RR.
Still, RR has the game-changer Rahul Tewatia in the strike. With an impressive death over from DC, RR restricted to score only 148 runs for 8 wicket loss. Delhi Capitals(DC) beat Rajasthan Royals(RR) by 13 runs.

Man of the Match
Anrich Nortje: Been feeling it the last few days. Nice to see some results. Buttler played them really well. Maybe I was a touch too full. Didn’t expect him to go for a six first ball. Maybe he was expecting something else of that delivery. Stuck to my strength and paid off.
Didn’t expect the second ramp. Luckily I stuck to it. We’ve got a good coach in Ryan. Lovely working with KG. Tushar has been working in the nets. Enjoying my experience with them. Doesn’t look like it but it’s nerve-wracking. Better to be on the field than on the other side.
