IPL 2018 Match 6 DD vs RR Live Streaming

Rajasthan got only 17.5 overs before rain arrived, but in that period, they put on a much better show with the bat compared to their debacle in the opening game against Sunrisers Hyderabad.

In absence of Steve Smith, the batting department crippled and barring Sanju Samson none of the batsman could cross the 20-run mark.

After the first three overs, the score was taken to 27/1 by Ben Stokes and Ajinkya Rahane. Delhi Daredevils won the toss and captain Gautam Gambhir chose to bowl first. Royals' innings eventually ended at 153 for five and Delhi were set a revised target of 71 runs in six overs as per Duckworth-Lewis method. It was a lovely wicket to bat on, then 150-odd for 5 in 18 overs, we thought we could contain them to 170 and it was chaseable, especially with dew coming in later on.

This was the second defeat of Delhi, while it was the first win for Rajasthan Royals in two matches. Ben Laughlin was the pick of Royals bowler as he took two wickets for 20 runs in two overs, while Jaydev Unadkat chipped in with a wicket. "There has not been much cricket on it but we have tried hard to sustain grass on it because it is this ingrown grass which binds the soil of the wicket", veteran curator Taposh Chatterjee said. We had to go from ball 1. As it happened The Daredevils chase started on a wrong note as they lost opener Colin Munro, through run out, in the first ball itself after a huge mix-up in the middle. DD managed just 12 off their 2-over Powerplay and they had a lot of catching up to do.

The two Indian batsmen shared a 62-run stand for the third wicket, taking the team to 84 for two in 10 overs. First over from Gowtham was very crucial. T20 is all about starting from zero, whether we win or lose.

Samson was adjudged Man of the Match for his swashbuckling knock. "Feels unbelievable, we wanted a win at our home ground", he said, "It's about the preparation, we had four team camps". I think it's about the preparation, we had about 4 camps before the IPL and an excellent support staff who give us lot of freedom. "Credit to the groundstaff for all the work (during the rain delay)".
