IPL 2018 RR vs DD

IPL 2018 RR vs DD

This will be the 32nd match of IPL T20 and will be played at Feroz Shah Kotla Ground, Delhi. RR, chasing a stiff 151-run target in 12 overs, faltered towards the end despite the blazing start from Buttler, who added 82 for the opening wicket with D'Arcy Short.

Rain had halted the play with five balls to spare in the Rajasthan innings.

Delhi Daredevils registered their third win of the season as they defeated Rajasthan Royals by fours runs in a rain-curtailed game.

Buttler was striking the ball well and took a special liking to Avesh Khan, smashing 23 runs from his first over. Essentially, his falling over into the off side when the ball is pitched short has put him in trouble often. Royals, who had replaced Rahul Tripathi with Ben Stokes at first slip, barely found another edge after that. Ben Stokes misfielded to concede a boundary off an overthrow and K. Gowtham saw the ball racing through his legs.

Kulkarni had a hard chance in his follow through in the last ball of the over but could not hold on to it.

His 47 came off 25 balls as he punished the Royals bowlers with four fours and as many sixes.




And Delhi, who just a week back, went through the turbulence of a captain stepping down in the middle of the IPL, were no longer placed at bottom. Bowling his third over of the night, Boult brought all his experience to the fore by defending 15 off the final over to give the hosts a much-needed win.

After two quiet overs, Shaw began the fireworks as he creamed off 16 runs from Dhawal Kulkarni's over, hitting the paceman for two sixes and a four.

Shaw was in good touch and continued to find boundaries. Ajinkya Rahane introduced Shreyas Gopal into the attack when the fielding restrictions were lifted. Pant hammered a quick 69 off just 29 deliveries with 7 fours and 5 sixes to his name.

Pant now leads the scoring charts with 375 runs to his name at an average of 41.66 while Iyer has 307 runs, boasting an average of 51.16.

Buttler completed his fifty off just 18 balls when he lofted Amit Mishra for a six. If the wicket-keeper batsman's innings was a whirlwind one, Iyer's was a more measured, as he took 34 balls to reach his fifty. But one thing in their favour is that five of the six games are at the Kotla and if they can make themselves invincible in their den, they can still nurture the hope of going all the way. But their batsmen refused to get bogged down.

At 82/1 off 6.4 overs, it was game on.
