VIVO IPL 2018: Rajasthan Royals Vs Delhi Daredevils

Rajasthan Royals bagged their first win in the IPL against the Delhi Daredevils yesterday, 11th April 2018 at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur. They won by 10 runs with a score of 153/5 in 17.5 overs. The game resumed just before midnight after the rain stopped. The Daredevils struggled to score runs and managed only a score of 60/4 in 6 overs. Ajinkya Rahane’s 45 and Ben Laughlin’s 2/30 assured their team their first win of the season.

The rain made it difficult to play, for the most part, forcing D/L method to come into play after RR had scored. DD was given a revised target of 71 to achieve in 6 overs. However, Ben Laughlin picked up the wickets of Glenn Maxwell and Vijay Shankar, while Jaydev Unadkat rain played spoilsport for the major part, forcing D/L method to come into play after the hosts were 153/5 in 17.5 overs when it started drizzling.

Delhi was given a revised target of 71 to chase in six overs but Australian pacer Ben Laughlin picked up the wickets of Glenn Maxwell (17) and Vijay Shankar while Jaydev Unadkat (1/24) kept an eye for Rishabh Pant (20) to not let Delhi come close to winning in harsh circumstances. It was a fantastic win for the Rajasthan champions and they put together an all-around performance.
