Rajasthan’s triumph over Delhi after much thrill in slag

Written by

Rajasthan Royals beat Delhi Daredevils by three wickets in a thriller at the Feroz Shah Kotla ground. Chasing 185 to win, the Tim Southee hit a last ball boundary to take Rajasthan home. Ajinkya Rahane played a solid hand of 45 but it was the 19-year-old Deepak Hooda who helped the Royals to the win. The young right-hander from Baroda slammed 54 from just 25 balls. Imran Tahir took 4 wickets for the Daredevils

Previously, Rajasthan Royals won the toss and elected to field. Delhi Daredevils got off to a flying start as Mayank Agarwal (37) and Shreyas Iyer (40) flayed the Royals bowling to all over the park. However, the Royals pegged back the Daredevils with some disciplined middle over bowling. In the end, it was cameos from Yuvraj Singh (27) and Angelo Mathews (27*) that helped the Daredevils step on to the gas and go past 180. Captain JP Duminy remained unbeaten on 44.
