    DC vs RR, IPL 2024: Delhi Capitals beats Rajasthan Royals by 20 runs to stay in playoff contention

    Samson’s efforts, a free-flowing 46-ball 86, though were not reciprocated by his fellow batters – no one other than his scored more than 27 – as the Royals crashed to their second consecutive defeat.

    Mukesh Kumar: The man who closed out the win for DC

    I wanted to bowl two dots in the final over. I wanted to get Powell out which I did. I backed my strengths but had to use variations on this pitch. Kuldeep’s over (18th) was the turning point in the match. 

  • May 07, 2024 23:32

    We had it in our hands. Batting second, it was achievable. These things keep happening in the IPL. I think we’re doing well in both departments. Think we conceded 10 runs too much. JFM batted really well. Ash bhai got him out. Last couple of overs, we gave away too much. 

    We’ve lost three games, but they’ve been tight. We’ve been playing some good cricket throughout this tournament. This tournament doesn’t let us relax, so we have to keep the momentum going. 

    You have to give credit to someone like Stubbs. He did well against Sandeep who has been doing so well. He batted well against some of my best bowlers. We need to see where we lost the game and keep learning. 

  • May 07, 2024 23:22
    RR 201/8 in 20 Overs - DC win by 20 runs and get two points

    Boult does what he needs to do, takes the single and brings Powell on strike. RR needs sixes but Mukesh has disrupted Powell’s stumps. BOWLED! Lovely yorker, which Powell just wanted to blindly swing at. Is this the final nail? 

    WICKET | Rovman Powell b Mukesh Kumar 13 (10b 1x4 1x6) SR: 130

    Avesh is the new man in. Runs two. It’s but a formality now. Two points to Delhi Capitals as it stands. He gets on one knee and muscles the ball past the bowler through long on. 200 comes up for RR. Mukesh bowls a dead ball. A single and a dot ball and that’s curtains on the game. RR lose. DC wins by 20 runs. 

  • May 07, 2024 23:19
    RR needs 29 runs from the last over

  • May 07, 2024 23:16
    RR 193/7 in 19 Overs

    RR needs 37 off 12. Rasikh the bowler. Begins with a wide yorker. Dot ball. He gifts Powell a low full toss which he cuts, but it’s stopped at the ropes. What could have been four runs is just one. POWELL HAS GONE BIG. He has smacked Rasikh Dar Salam to the tier 2 of the stands going down on one knee. Over long on. He then beats Powell, with the ball going to Pant. DC thinks Powell has knicked this and review. No ball on bat. Powell survives. Rasikh finishes with a dot ball. RR thinks it’s wide and review. No conclusive evidence to overturn the decision. No wide.

  • May 07, 2024 23:12
    RR 185/7 in 18 Overs -Kuldeep takes two

    Kuldeep walks in and gets to work off his very first ball. Gets Ferreira caught leg before. For a solitary run off three balls. RR in deep trouble here.

    WICKET Donovan Ferreira lbw b Kuldeep Yadav 1 (3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

    New batter is Ashwin. I am surprised he didn’t come out earlier. There’s a slip in place. Nice tight pressure from Delhi’s bowlers. The ask is still not impossible, but it’s getting harder. Ashwin tries to go big and goes aerial only to find the man at long on. Kuldeep has done so well to peg the momentum well and truly in DC’s favour. Shai Hope takes the catch. Ashwin gone for 2. 

    WICKET Ravichandran Ashwin c Hope b Kuldeep Yadav 2 (3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

    4 runs • 2 wickets

  • May 07, 2024 23:04
    RR 180/5 in 17 Overs - Dubey falls

    RR need 52 runs from 24 balls. Samson gone. Shubham Dubey raises his hand and says, ‘wait, have faith.’ He dispatches Khaleel for a six over long off and four through deep midwicket off the first two balls. But this little blitz will be nipped in the bud, with Shubham holing out to Tristan Stubbs at long on. 

    WICKET | Shubham Dubey c Stubbs b Ahmed 25 (12b 2x4 2x6) SR: 208.33

    Donnovan Ferreira is the new man. Can he help Rovman Powell seal this? Two new batters in the middle. Ideal conditions for DC. They’ve done well to peg this back. Ferreira off the mark with a single through point. 

  • May 07, 2024 23:01
    RR 170/4 in 16 Overs

    Mukesh with the ball. Sanju on 85. Rajasthan needs 63 runs from 30 balls. Mukesh starts well. Sanju then opens his arms and sends the ball to long on. Hope dances around a bit by the rope, but it’s taken cleanly. Sanju cannot believe it. Everyone’s tempers are flaring. Sanju is negotiating with the umpires, Parth Jindal (DC co-owner) is gesturing from the corporate box. Looks like Sanju wants to review, but the time is evidently up. An unhappy Samson walks off. 

    WICKET | Sanju Samson c Hope b Mukesh Kumar 86 (46b 8x4 6x6) SR: 186.95

    Rovman Powell is the new batter in. Gets going with a boundary and 4 byes. 

  • May 07, 2024 22:52
    RR 159/3 in 15 Overs

    74 needed off 36. Khaleel to bowl. Full and wide and Sanju had sent this to the deep backward point boundary. FOUR. He then slashes to the offside but will only get a single. Dubey then runs a single after nudging the ball to midwicket. Khaleel goes very short to Samson and that goes over Samson like a tennis ball. Easy wide call this. Pant not impressed. The next ball is also wide. Proper disruption of rhythm this. Can you believe it? He bowls another wide. Sanju is moving and yet, Khaleel is far off the tram lines. A loooong over this. One more. Wide! Just bowl to the stumps to break this streak, Khaleel. Bowls short with the ball rising up. Beats him as he twirls in trying to hit the ball and Khaleel gives Sanju a bit of a stare too. The over has frustrated Sanju too and he skies the ball but it lands safely beyond mid off. Just 11 runs off this over, given there were four wides. 

  • May 07, 2024 22:43
    Strategic timeout time!

    Still thinking about that 95m beaut from Shubham Dubey! Breaks have a tendency to disrupt momentum. Can DC find a breakthrough here? 

  • May 07, 2024 22:41
    RR 148/3 in 14 Overs

    91 runs needed off 42 balls. Ishant to bowl his third. Goes very straight to Dubey who has to put in some work to play this off his body for a single. Samson then drives straight to the fielder. OH NO. Has Sanju fallen? NOPE. He beats the cover fielder, Axar there. The ball flies through for four. Good timing from Sanju. FOUR. Sanju goes in the same direction, but this time a nice batswing. Wanted to go a bit square but ends up going through extra cover. Just a single as a fielder intercepts in time. Dubey now, swings the bat and edges the ball with pace powering it fine for FOUR. Ishant then bowls a wide down leg. Shubham’s thumped this over long on for SIX. Gets a hug from Sanju Samson. We see Buttler following the arc of the ball from the dugout. A beauty this. 17 runs come off this Ishant Sharma over. 

  • May 07, 2024 22:32
    RR 131/3 in 13 Overs

    109 needed off 48 balls. Rasikh goes for the slower ball and Sanju sends the ball flying over long on and lands the ball in the second tier of the stands. SIX. This ball helped Rasikh dismiss Parag but Sanju is a different beast. Some luck also going Sanju’s way as he manages to knick the next ball between Pant and short third for FOUR. Sanju goes big again, SIX. Not entirely connected well, an awkward short, but goes over the fence by the sight screen. Rasikh recovers, beating Samson on the cut. Samson then runs a single after thumping the ball through mid off. 18 runs come off the over for RR.

  • May 07, 2024 22:27
    RR 113/3 in 12 Overs

    Kuldeep to bowl his third. A dot and then a no ball from Kuldeep Yadav. Came very close to the stumps and ends up clipping the right stump while bowling. Umpire is looking around and Rishabh is assuring him that DC has not changed anything in the field. It won’t matter as Sanju tonks the ball over long on for SIX. What a big hit this from the Royals skipper. He knows he is good against spin and hence is insisting on hogging strike. FIFTY for the skipper. 10 runs come off the over. 

  • May 07, 2024 22:23
    RR 103/3 in 11 Overs - Rasikh gets Riyan

    Rasikh Dar into the attack. 129 needed off 60 for RR. He hit those two key boundaries. What can he manage with the ball? Beats Parag on pace and Parag swats the ball over long on for SIX. Effortless. Happy to use the pace of the ball to send it flying into the stands. Rasikh will have the last laugh as he clips the top of Riyan Parag’s off stump sending him back for a 22-ball 27. More pressure on skipper Sanju. 

    WICKET | Riyan Parag b Rasikh Salam 27 (22b 1x4 3x6) SR: 122.72

  • May 07, 2024 22:17
    RR 93/2 in 10 overs

    Rishabh Pant decides to continue with Axar Patel. Axar to Parag, FOUR! Clever from Parag, who positions himself well for a reverse sweep towards third man for a boundary. Still, the Delhi spinners are not letting both of these batters run away with attacking batting. Only seven from this over. 

  • May 07, 2024 22:15
    RR 86/2 in 9 overs

    Kuldeep stays in the attack from the other end. SIX! Parag takes on Kuldeep to dispatch the full-length ball on off for a maximum over deep cover. Eight off this over. 

  • May 07, 2024 22:10
    RR 78/2 in 8 overs

    Axar continues. Just a single from the first three deliveries. Axar to Parag, SIX! Clean strike from Parag to clear the long-off fence. He keeps the strike with a quick single. 

  • May 07, 2024 22:06
    RR 70/2 in 7 overs

    Kuldeep Yadav has been introduced. He ends his over quietly, leaking just three runs from it. 

  • May 07, 2024 22:01
    RR 67/2 in 6 overs

    Axar Patel comes into the attack. Axar to Buttler, FOUR! Flight delivery on off and Axar invites Buttler to pounce on it. SIX! Full and in the slot, and Buttler creams it over long-on. Axar to Buttler, OUT! Fortune favours the brave! Axar kept it in the middle, luring Buttler to go for another big shot and an inside edge dislodged the stumps. Riyan Parag comes in at no. four. 

    WICKET | Jos Buttler b Patel 19 (17b 2x4 1x6) SR: 111.76

  • May 07, 2024 21:57
    RR 57/1 in 5 overs

    A first change in the attack, Mukesh Kumar comes in for Khaleel Ahmed. Mukesh to Buttler, DROPPED! Buttler hits it very high and Jake Frasher-McGurk drops it! Mukesh to Samson, SIX! A flat-bat six over long-on as Samson continues his onslaught. He hits two more FOURS to end the another over with 15 runs coming from it. 

  • May 07, 2024 21:53
    RR 42/1 in 4 overs

    Ishant continues. FOUR! Samson is in top form today. Cuts the short ball with perfection at cover. FOUR! This a bad line from Ishant, and Samson punishes it appropriately. SIX! Samson ends the over with a maximum to take 15 off this over. 

  • May 07, 2024 21:45
    RR 27/1 in 3 overs

    Khaleel continues. Khaleel to Samson, SIX! Stunning shot from Samson, who plays it over long-on from backfoot to get his 200th IPL SIX. FOUR! Khaleel drags back the length but Buttler positioned himself well to play it at mid-on. FOUR! Samson ends the over with another visually appealing shot, this time punching it over covers. 

  • May 07, 2024 21:37
    RR 9/1 in 2 overs

    Ishant Sharma from the other end. Just two from his over. 

  • May 07, 2024 21:30
    RR 7/1 in 1 over

    Khaleel Ahmed has the new ball in hand. Jaiswal is on strike. FOUR! What a way to start the innings. Straight hit against the middle line ball which gets a deflection from Buttler’s things for a four. OUT! Khaleel has the last laugh! Jaiswal tried to pull the short ball but it went straight up and into the safe hands of Axar Patel. Sanju Samson in at no. 3. Khaleel follows errs with his line and bowls a couple of wides. He gets off the mark with a single. Seven off the first over. 

    WICKET | Yashasvi Jaiswal c Patel b Ahmed 4 (2b 1x4 0x6) SR: 200

  • May 07, 2024 21:18
    An important milestone for YUZI CHAHAL

    Yuzvendra Chahal becomes first Indian to pick 350 T20 wickets during DC vs RR IPL 2024 clash

    DC vs RR, IPL 2024: Yuzvendra Chahal became first Indian to take 350 T20 wickets.

  • May 07, 2024 21:17
    R Ashwin is the pick of the bowlers today

    You don’t bowl a full toss and a get a wicket in the first over you bowl! Sometimes, your best deliveries don’t get you wickets. I am not complaining. I would say 220 is about par. I think we’ll get more and more baseballers playing T20 in the future! There was once a concept called good balls but in modern day cricket, those aren’t good balls anymore. 

  • May 07, 2024 21:15
    DC LOVES 200s

    This is the fourth consecutive 200 score in the first innings at this venue this season

  • May 07, 2024 21:10
    DC 221/8 in 20 Overs

    Sandeep to bowl the last over. Stubbs on strike and we will begin with a SIX. Pure power as Stubbs manages to send a low full toss to the long off boundary. AND ANOTHER ONE. SIX. Down the ground this time. Sourav Ganguly loves what he’s seeing and is on his feet. Wide length ball. A very desolate Sanga looks on as the runs pile on. Sandeep replies in the best way possible, he’s gone straight and low to the toes. The ball goes through Stubbs but Sandeep is appealing. Umpire raises the finger. Caught leg before. Stubbs reviews. No bat involved. Three reds. Brilliant comeback this! Stubbs goes for a 20-ball 41. 

    WICKET | Tristan Stubbs lbw b Sandeep Sharma 41 (20b 3x4 3x6) SR: 205

    Kuldeep is the new batter and he can hit the ball. He does too. Sandeep goes a bit wide of off and Kuldeep moves ahead a bit, makes space and smacks it to the square boundary. Ashwin is annoyed that this wasn’t stopped by the fielder who came running in. Kuldeep then lunges to make something of a very low full toss. Hits it with the wrong side of the bat and it goes just short of Chahal at short third. Just a single. Rasikh Dar Salam also manages a single off the last ball. Tries to run the second, but he’s so far away when Sanju Samson collects the ball and whacks the stumps. The DC innings winds up for 221/8. A good recovery this by the home side. 

  • May 07, 2024 21:02
    DC 203/6 in 19 Overs

    21 runs came off the previous over. Boult comes now for his final over. Gulbadin negotiates a yorker to run a single. Stubbs on strike, just what DC wants and he has time to find the gap and send the ball to the square leg fence for FOUR. Boult recovers with a yorker. You could hear the thud into the shoe, looks for a leg stump line here. Just a single. Gulbadin on strike, tries to slice the ball but holes out to Ashwin at short third. Soft. 

    WICKET | Gulbadin Naib c Ashwin b Boult 19 (15b 1x4 1x6) SR: 126.66

    Rasikh Dar Salam is the new batter. Abhishek Porel makes way for the man. He is DC’s impact sub. And he scoops Boult over the keeper’s head for FOUR off his very first ball. Had ample time to find the best way to scoop it. Doing Dilshan proud here, is the J&K youngster. He tries again and does it AGAIN! The dugout is ecstatic and Ricky Ponting gives his colleagues an all-knowing wink. The coach knew! DC into the 200s. 

  • May 07, 2024 20:59
    DC 189/5 in 18 Overs

    Chahal to bowl out. DC run rate now 9.88. Gulbadin finds the boundary and a relieving one for the Capitals. He drags the ball from outside off and swats it to the midwicket ropes and beats a diving Parag for FOUR. He then thumps Chahal to long off but Rovman Powell stops the ball from going past the ropes, just a single. Stubbs looks at the field, sees the fielders in the circle and reverse sweeps to the fence for four. No protection on the off side at all. FOUR. Chahal tried to bowl into the leg stump, good anticipation from the South African. Oh YET AGAIN! Stubbs neutralises the field yet again., this time, paddle sweeping to the square leg boundary for FOUR. Incredible reading of the field this. He will finish with a SIX and it’s a gorgeous shot sent over deep backward square. Expensive from Chahal and this will bring DC’s surge towards a big total back on track. 

  • May 07, 2024 20:50
    DC 168/5 in 17 Overs

    Sandeep Sharma returns for his third. 

    In the last 19 balls, DC has managed just 19 runs and lost a wicket. Rajasthan has been pretty good in the death overs with 19 wickets in 11 games at an economy of 9.84. They’ll want to bank on that form here as they try and contain this DC score. Sandeep mixes up his lengths and pace to fox Stubbs and Gulbadin. His slow bouncer to Gulbadin that left the Afghan puzzled on why he couldn’t connect is a thing of beauty. Just three singles so far. Sandeep then targets the toes and Gulbadin can only manage a single. Fantastic over from the RR pacer. 

  • May 07, 2024 20:48
    DC 164/5 in 16 Overs

    Chahal returns for his third. Gulbadin welcomes him with a massive SIX. Not too much distance, but just enough for the most runs he can score off a delivery.. Wasn’t quite the length he would have wanted to bowl here. Goes straight down the ground, the Afghan. He then takes a single. Stubbs takes his time to try and read the leggie. Chahal changes his length, bowls to the stumps with a few deviations, trying to temp the batter to try something. After the six, nicely pegs things back. Eight runs come off the over. 

  • May 07, 2024 20:41
    DC 156/5 in 15 Overs

    Ravichandran Ashwin to bowl out. Ashwin sticks to a fuller length, not allowing too much room and keeping a check on the runs. The pair - Gulbadin and Stubbs - are happy to rotate strike. Sanju is happy with what his bowler is giving him - ‘Vera level, vera level’ he screams from behind the stumps. Just the five runs from the over. Ashwin finishes for the day with figures of 3/24 from his 4 overs. Incredible effort. 

    Strategic time out taken. 

  • May 07, 2024 20:39
    DC 151/5 in 14 Overs - Chahal removes Pant

    Chahal to bowl his second. Delhi Capitals bring up the team 150. Stubbs and Pant play it safe with the leggie, dealing in singles. But Pant then moves into the off stump line and tries to swat the ball on the legside, but is caught by Trent Boult at fine leg. Pant’s leg spin weakness endures. 350th T20 wicket for Yuzvendra Chahal.

    WICKET |
    Rishabh Pant c Boult b Chahal 15 (13b 0x4 1x6) SR: 115.38

    Big wicket this. Gulbadin Naib is the new batter in. 

  • May 07, 2024 20:34
    DC 146/4 (13 Overs) - Porel falls to Ashwin

    Ashwin returns. Porel begins with a single through short third. Pant tries to slog sweep Ashwin, but has copped the ball on himself. Appeal follows but Ashwin himself wasn’t too convinced, perhaps wondering if it was going down leg. No reviews, RR and DC get on with it. Pant runs a single. Porel on strike,. OH AND GONE! Ashwin opts for a slower ball, trying to draw a shot from Porel with that outside off line. Porel holes out to Sandeep Sharma at point and a remarkable innings comes to an end. Tristan Stubbs is the new batter. Four runs come off the over, plus that important wicket. 

    WICKET | Abishek Porel c Sandeep Sharma b Ashwin 65 (36b 7x4 3x6) SR: 180.55

  • May 07, 2024 20:30
    DC 142/3 in 12 Overs

    Boult returns. Starts with a pace variation to Porel. He’s pulled it to midwicket for a single. Pant pulls out a version of the helicopter shot but will get just a single. Boult goes slow into the pitch with a short ball and Porel has sent that flying through deep midwicket for FOUR. A length ball is then thumped to midwicket for a single. Now Rishabh Pant sends the Boult short ball to the ropes, a hook over fine leg. Gorgeous shot this. Boult ends the over with a dot, beating Pant with a fuller delivery going into the channel. An expensive over for Sanju’s RR, not ideal when they want wickets. 

  • May 07, 2024 20:23
    DC 129/3 in 11 overs

    Avesh Khan returns to the attack. SIX! Porel gets to his half-century in style after pulling the short ball over mid-wicket for a maximum. FOUR! Full toss from Avesh and Porel slams it over extra cover. 14 from this over. 

  • May 07, 2024 20:21
    DC 115/3 in 10 overs

    Samson is rotating his spinners well as Ashwin comes in place of Chahal now. Ashwin to Axar, OUT! Similar attempt from Axar trying to hit it over a straight boundary but this time he did not get the elevation and holes out to Riyan Parag at long-off. Skipper Rishabh Pant walks out at no. five. Just 6 from this over. 

    WICKET | Axar Patel c Parag b Ashwin 15 (10b 1x4 1x6) SR: 150

  • May 07, 2024 20:18
    DC 109/2 in 9 overs

    Porel takes a single on Riyan Parag’s second delivery, taking Delhi past the 100-run mark in the ninth over. Parag to Axar, SIX! Brilliant batting from Axar, who got down to his knees and got a good connection to hit a straight boundary. 11 off the over. 

  • May 07, 2024 20:12
    DC 98/2 in 8 overs

    Yuzvendra Chahal from the other end. SIX! Porel welcomes Chahal in style. Flight ball on off and Porel steps out to hit it over deep mid-wicket. 12 off Chahal’s first over after Boult fails to stop Porel’s sweep going for a FOUR in the last delivery.

    DC vs RR, IPL 2024: Fraser-McGurk hits 19-ball fifty in Delhi Capitals vs Rajasthan Royals clash

    Jake Fraser-McGurk gave Delhi Capitals the perfect start in its IPL 2024 clash against Rajasthan Royals with a 19-ball fifty art the Arun Jaitley Stadium in New Delhi on Tuesday.

  • May 07, 2024 20:07
    DC 84/2 in 7 overs

    Riyan Parag replaces Ashwin. Parag to Porel, FOUR! Porel brings out his slog sweep but gets an outside edge, nonetheless, the ball travels to the fence for a boundary. Still only six runs from this over. 

  • May 07, 2024 20:01
    DC 78/2 in 6 overs

    Sandeep Sharma comes back into the attack. Sandeep to Porel, RUN OUT! Shai Hope is unluckier than JFM it seems. He leaves the crease before Porel’s straight hit gets a deflection from Sandeep which dislodges bails in the non-striker’s end. Wow, this is crazy. Axar Patel comes in at no. four ahead of Pant and Stubbs and gets off the mark with a FOUR. 10 off the over as DC scores 78 from the first PowerPlay. 

    WICKET | Jake Fraser-McGurk c Ferreira b Ashwin 50 (20b 7x4 3x6) SR: 250

  • May 07, 2024 19:57
    DC 68/1 in 5 overs

    Interesting, Samson brings Ashwin. Ashwin to JFM, OUT! Would you believe this? A full toss has gone straight to Ferreira at cover. A bad delivery but Ashwin gets lucky this time to send the dangerman back. Shai Hope, the new man in at no. 3 gets off the mark with a single. SIX! Porel rocks back and pulls it over mid-wicket for a maximum. 9 and a wicket off this over. 

    WICKET | Jake Fraser-McGurk c Ferreira b Ashwin 50 (20b 7x4 3x6) SR: 250

  • May 07, 2024 19:50
    DC 59/1 in 4 overs

    Avesh Khan replaces Sandeep Sharma from the other end. He starts with over the wicket. Avesh to JFM, FOUR! Lucky boundary as his straight hit gets an underage which runs away past the keeper. FOUR! This time over extra cover. FOUR! Fuller and dispatched it at backward point. SIX! This time aerial drive and this is brutal batting from Fraser-McGurk. FOUR! Another boundary, five in a row! SIX! Rampage from JFM who reaches his fifty in just 19 deliveries as 28 runs have come from this over.

  • May 07, 2024 19:44
    DC 31/0 in 3 overs

    Boult continues. Boult to JFM, SIX! He clears his front leg and hits it straight for a biggie. FOUR! This time he swings the bat hard and gets a thick edge for a boundary at third man. FOUR! JFM is on fire as usual! A short delivery from Boult and JFM brings out his flat bat across for a third boundary of this over. Fraser-McGurk keeps the strike with a single on the last delivery. 15 from this over. 

  • May 07, 2024 19:42
    DC 16/0 in 2 overs

    Sandeep Sharma from the other end. A couple of singles to start the over before Porel took the centre stage, hitting Sandeep for two glorious FOURS, taking 10 from this over.

    DC 6/0 in 1 over

    Trent Boult to JFM, an inswinging delivery from around the wicket and McGurk flicks it for a double. Boult beats JFM in the next two deliveries before the batter misses to find a connection as he has been hit on the box. McGurk is writhing in pain and needs medical attention. The physio is running in the middle and we will have to wait a little. Boult to JFM, FOUR! Aerial off-drive for the first boundary. Six from the first over.

    Rishabh Pant’s spin troubles

    In the IPL, Rishabh Pant is DC’s top scorer this season but his strike rate has been a bit poor against spin. Scott Styris, in his analysis for the broadcaster, observes how there’s barely been any foot movement from the Indian keeper-batter. Is this perhaps due to his accident and the injury he sustained on his right leg? In nine innings, he has been dismissed four times by leg spinners.

    Delhi Capitals’ (DC) stop-start IPL 2024 campaign enters its final lap as it takes on the formidable Rajasthan Royals at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi on Tuesday.

    DC began the season on the wrong foot, losing four of its first five games. But the Rishabh Pant-led side soon clicked into gear, winning four of its next matches to put itself in contention for a playoff spot.

    But a heavy defeat against Kolkata Knights Riders in its last game has put DC back on its haunches, with its top-four chances now hinging on other results.

    For Royals, the plot has been far more buoyant. Sanju Samson’s men have been on a roll, sitting second in the table with eight wins out of ten matches. A win against DC will help it get back on top of the standings, displacing Kolkata Knight Riders.
