Rajasthan Royals beat Delhi Daredevils courtesy rain and some miserly bowling

IPL 2018 Maxwell is added in the DD squad against RR

Preview: Smarting from a crushing defeat at the hands of Sunrisers Hyderabad in their opening fixture, Rajasthan Royals will look to seek home comfort and register a win when they take on Delhi Daredevils, who lost against Kings XI Punjab, in an Indian Premier League (IPL) clash here on Wednesday. With heavy showers delaying the match by two-and-a-half hours, Duckworth Lewis system came into play. Now that the rains have stopped, the covers are coming off which means the game could begin anytime soon.

The live match Rajasthan Royals vs Delhi Daredevils will be broadcasted on Star Sports 1, Star Sports 1 HD, Star Sports Select 1 and Star Sports Select 1 HD in English Commentary.

IPL's costliest player Ben Stokes, who was bought for Rs 12.5 crore, again failed to come to the party and was dismissed by Trent Boult while batting on 16. The Royals rode on captain Ajinkya Rahane's 45 and Sanju Samson's 22-ball 37 to post 153 for 5 in 17.5 overs when rain interrupted play.

Delhi, chasing a revised target of 71 runs in six overs, were restricted to 60-4 by some quality seam bowling by Rajasthan bowlers with Ben Laughlin (2-20) picking up the key wicket of Glenn Maxwell (17) in the fourth over. Sawai Mansingh Stadium waited five years for a match, only to be foiled by rain. "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. It was a attractive wicket to bat on, then 150 for 5 in 18 overs, we thought we could contain them to 170 and it was chaseable, especially with dew coming in later on. DD had a miserable score of 0/1 in 0.1 overs and they never recovered from that.

Newly appointed captain Gautam Gambhir (55) led from the front but lacked support around him. The duo too kept Rajasthan's run-rate above eight, before Buttler was bowled by a slower one from Mohammed Shami.

"We have put the ball in BCCI's court and the board will now take a call on the issue", he added.

Opener Colin Munro (0) was run out without facing a ball. DD now needed 21 runs off two balls with Shreyas Iyer joining Morris. It resulted in a slow start before Maxwell got going, targeting Jaydev Unadkat for two fours and a six in the third over. Morris spanked a couple of boundaries in the penultimate and final ball of the match, but by then the contest was all over bar the shouting and the Royals won by 10 runs (D/L Method).
