What a game we've had. It looked like a lost cause when David Miller fell for 62. Chris Morris struggled to time the ball against Avesh Khan in the 18th over. But with 27 needed off 12, Morris got stuck into KG Rabada, collecting 15 off the Protean fast bowler. Needing 12 off the last over, Morris got Rajasthan over the line with three wickets and two balls to spare. Morris showing why Rajasthan shelled out the big bucks for him in the auction. He clobbered four sixes tonight. What a night. Rishabh Pant's well-crafted 51 will have to take a backseat tonight. That would be all from our side, thanks for joining us.

Morris collects a brace before clobbering Curran over square leg for six. What a turnaround. Royals need 4 off 4. A dot next ball. 4 off 3. He has done it! Morris finishes off in style, a six over square leg as Royals win by three wickets. Morris remains unbeaten on 36!

RR 136/7 in 19 Overs: Morris launches KG over long-on for six! Rabada bonces back with two successive dots. Morris collects a couple as Avesh Khan saves a certain boundary with some acrobatic fielding at third-man. Morris then flicks KG over fine leg for six. What a strike. 15 off the over. Morris to keep strike in the 20th. Rajasthan Royals need 12 runs in 6 balls

RR 121/7 in 18 Overs: Jaydev Unadkat would've been run out by a country mile but Pant squanders a simple chance. Fails to collect the ball cleanly. Meanwhile, Morris is struggling to time the ball. Capitals well and truly on top here. Seven off the Tom Curran over. Rajasthan Royals need 27 runs in 12 balls

RR 114/7 in 17 Overs: Woakes to bowl his last over. Morris collects a single. Whoa. Unadkat has swivelled a pull over backward square leg for six. What a shot. Nine off the over. Rajasthan Royals need 34 runs in 18 balls

RR 105/7 in 16 Overs: End of an excellent innings from David Miller. He falls for a 43-ball 62. Avesh Khan, back into the attack, gets hammered for a couple of sixes by Miller, who then tries to make it three in three but can only hit it as far as Lalit Yadav. Time out taken. 15 runs and a wicket. Jaydev Unadkat joins Morris. Rajasthan Royals need 43 runs in 24 balls.

RR 90/6 in 15 Overs: Kagiso Rabada is back into the attack. He straightaway creates a breakthrough, has Tewatia caught by Lalit Yadav. Royals slip further. Chris Morris joins David Miller. Five runs and a wicket. Rajasthan Royals need 58 runs in 30 balls.

RR 85/5 in 15 Overs: Miller's energy rubs off on Rahul Tewatia, who hammers To Curran over mid-off for four. Royals still very much in it. Remember, they still have Chris Morris waiting in the ranks. Tewatia ends the over with a boundary to backward square leg. Rajasthan Royals need 63 runs in 36 balls.

RR 73/5 in 14 Overs: Marcus Stoinis comes into the attack. Miller keeps Royals in the hunt with a hat-trick of boundaries. 15 runs off the over. Rajasthan Royals need 75 runs in 42 balls. Miller holds the key.

RR 58/5 in 13 Overs: Tom Curran comes into the attack. He starts with a wide first ball. After a couple of slightly wide balls, he gets it straight and Tewatia can only defend it to extra cover. Very good from TC as he goes for just two. Rajasthan Royals need 90 runs in 48 balls

RR 56/5 in 11 Overs: Ashwin into his third. The batsmen collect two off the first three and a couple off the last two. Just four from that over. Excellent from Ash.

RR 52/5 in 10 Overs: Avesh Khan gets his first wicket as Riyan Parag holes out to Dhawan. It was a slower ball outside off and Parag gets it off the toe-end of the bat. Tewatia joins Miller. Royals are unravelling in dramatic fashion. But that doesn't deter from Miller who collects a brace of boundaries to take Royals past 50.


RR 45/3 in 9 Overs: Ashwin to bowl his second. You'd imagine Miller and Parag will have to do bulk of the scoring here if Rajasthan are to get close to the total. They still have Rahul Tewatia in the ranks. Five singles from the over.

RR 36/3 in 8 Overs: Avesh Khan gets his first - Dube has nicked it to Shikhar Dhawan at slip. Earlier in the over, Khan went short outside off and Miller carved it away to the left of third-man for four. Tom Curran could've saved two there but wasn't to be. Sloppy work. Riyan Parag comes to the crease. That was Dhawan's 78th IPL catch by the way. Five runs and a wicket from that over.

RR 31/3 in 7 Overs: Ashwin into the attack with a wide slip. Miller and Dube steal a couple. Good intensity shown by both batsmen. Runs have been hard to come by. Important these two keep the scoreboard ticking. Five runs off the first over after Powerplay.

RR 26/3 in 6 Overs: Miller gets one over his South African teammate KG Rabada. Rabada, coming around the wicket, bowls a length ball and Miller scythes it past a diving mid-off fielder for four. End of the Powerplay. DC have taken the honours in the first six.

RR 21/3 in 5 Overs: Woakes into his third. Dube and Miller have a tall task in front of them. It is not a big total but Delhi have the attack to make life difficult for the Royals. Just three off that Woakes over. Woakes 2 for 13 from 3. Brilliant.

RR 18/3 in 4 Overs: Rabada, you beauty. His Powerplay purple patch last season continues. He has the in-form Samson nicking to Shikhar Dhawan at slip. Royals have lost three in the Powerplay. Miller joins Dube, slip in place. Five runs and a wicket from that KG over.

RR 13/2 in 3 Overs: Woakes gets Vohra and Buttler in one over!Vohra, having hit two back-to-back boundaries, looked to go over mid-on but could only hit the ball as far as Rabada. A ball later, Woakes had Buttler caught behind, Pant grabbing a stunner with a dive. Shivam Dube joins Samson.

RR 5/0 in 2 Overs: No KG Rabada yet as Avesh Khan shares the new ball with a slip in place. Buttler works the first ball to fine leg for a single. Rabada had a terrific record in the Powerplay last season... took wickets consistently. That's one bowling change Pant will mull over. Good start from Avesh Khan

RR 3/0 in 1 Over: Chris Woakes starts with a dot. A slip in place for Buttler. Woakes starts with two outswingers. Buttler steals a quick single to get off the mark. Lalit Yadav dives at cover point to save a certain boundary off Vohra's blade. Good effort. Only three from the first over. We are yet to witness a six in this match!

Welcome back. Chris Woakes to take the new ball. Buttler and Vohra open the innings. Buttler takes strike.

Sakariya bowls an excellent last over. He concedes 11 off the 20th. Rabada gets a boundary off an inside edge. Sakariya finishes with 4-0-33-0. Delhi has been restricted to 147. A brilliant bowling performance from the Royals, spearheaded by the experienced Jaydev Unadkat. The Saurashtra left-armer ran through the Delhi top-order before the likes of Tewatia and Parag tightened the noose in the middle overs. Mustafizur grabbed a couple as well. But for Rishabh Pant's 51, Delhi could've finished with way less.

DC 136/8 in 19 Overs: Mustafizur cleans up with another slower ball. Terrific from Fizz after Curran had clobbered his previous ball for four. Ashwin comes to the crease and hits a boundary first ball! Lofted over backward point. Poor delivery from Mustafizur. But he has the last laugh as Ashwin is run out off the last ball. 12 runs and a wicket off that over. 2 for 29 for Mustafizur.

DC 124/6 in 18 Overs: Sakariya is back. Looks like it will be Sakariya and Mustafizur at the death. Woakes gets one away to the third man fence for four. Meanwhile, Sakariya bowling a series of slower balls. Nine off the over.

DC 115/6 in 17 Overs: Mustafizur back for another crack. Chris Woakes lofts a slower ball over the in-field for four. Mustafizur sticks to the slower-ball ploy and forces false shots off the two batsmen. Excellent from Fizz. Just eight from it. RR keeping a lid on the scoring.


DC 107/6 in 16 Overs: Tewatia slips in another miserly over... he has been on point since that 20-run over against Pant. Woakes and Curran can use the long handle. Curran takes two off the last ball to make it 5 off the 16th.

DC 102/6 in 15 Overs: Chris Morris has a breakthrough at last. Lalit Yadav holes out to Rahul Tewatia at mid-on. After being taken for 20 in his first two, he bowled a short ball. Curran gleefully pulled it away for four. He then clipped one to deep square to bring up the team 100. Chris Woakes comes to the crease.

DC 96/5 in 14 Overs: Tewatia back into the attack. Big lbw appeal against Lalit but that was going down and not reviewed. Rahul rushes through his second over. Excellent from the leggie, just three from it.

DC 93/5 in 13 Overs: Harakiri from DC and Pant. The skipper is run out for 51. Direct hit from Parag catches Pant short of his crease. The keeper-batsman wanted to steal a single but Parag took down the stumps at the non-striker's end. Chris Woakes Tom Curran joins Lalit, who gets a boundary off Parag. Lalit and Pant had a fifty partnership.

DC 85/4 in 12 Overs: Mustafizur is back to bowl his second. Lalit decides to welcome the Bangladesh pacer with a maximum but Parag had other plans in the deep. The Assam all-rounder times his jump to perfection to save five runs. Pant, meanwhile, gets to his half-century in style with a boundary.

DC 77/4 in 11 Overs: Tewatia comes into the attack. Pant takes a liking to his leg break and collects a hat-trick of boundaries. Tewatia bowling way too short and paying the price. He ends the over with yet another boundary, 20 off it. UPDATE: Unadkat is off the field, Anuj Rawat is flling in for him.

DC 57/4 in 10 Overs: Unadkat to bowl out. Pant gets a leading edge to sweeper's left for a single. Next ball, Lalit is beaten on the inside edge. Unadkat bowling a lot of cutters, taking pace off the ball seems to be the mantra for all RR pacers. JD slips in his run through, seems to be fine. Just a single off the final delivery. 3 for 15 from 4 Overs for Unadkat.

DC 54/4 in 9 Overs: Rishabh Pant welcomes Riyan Parag into the attack with a cracking shot for four. Parag has kept it tight save that first-ball boundary. The last thing RR want at the moment is to let DC gather momentum. Parag tries his side-arm action twice in the over. He goes for eight.


DC 46/4 in 8 Overs: Morris into his second over.  Lalit Yadav opens his account with a clip past mid-wicket for four. So, Morris continues to leak runs. More runs off him as Yadav helps a short and wide delivery down to the third-man fence for four. The onus will be on Rishabh Pant to not only bat deep but ensure that his side puts up a competitive score. Nine runs from that over.

DC 37/4 in 7 Overs: Mustafizur strikes in his first over! Marcus Stoinis is undone by a cutter at a length just outside off. Good catch from Jos Buttler. RR all over DC at the moment.  Lalit Yadav comes to the crease. Just one run and a wicket from it.

DC 36/3 in 6 Overs: Unadkat is on a roll. He gets Ajinkya Rahane out caught & bowled. It was a slower ball, just outside off. Rahane, in two minds, could only chip it straight back to the bowler. Marcus Stoinis joins Pant. JD's first spell - 3 for 12.

DC 31/2 in 5 Overs: Chris Morris comes into the attack. Rahane collects three off the first two deliveries. He is a busy player, is Rahane. He would want to be the fulcrum of this batting line-up tonight. Morris has a slip in place for Rishabh Pant. Morris concedes the first extra of the match, a wide down leg side. Pant smashes one down the ground for four. This is an expensive first over from Morris already. 11 off the over.

DC 20/2 in 4 Overs: Samson, you beauty! He flies to his right and grabs a stunner to get rid of Dhawan! Unadkat's slower ball proves to be the left-hander's undoing. Dhawan tried to play the ramp shot but got a thick edge. Rishabh Pant, in at No. 4, opens his account with a boundary. Will be interesting to see Pant's approach here. Will he take time, get his eye in before cutting loose?

DC 16/1 in 3 Overs: Ajinkya Rahane joins Dhawan, who drives one past extra cover for his first scoring shot of the night. Rahane's off the mark as well, with a single to third-man. Shaw's dismissal... he was stuck at the crease, had to pay the price for playing across the line through midwicket. Rahane ends the over with a boundary.

DC 5/1 in 2 Overs: Jaydev Unadkat comes into the attack and gets a breakthrough straightaway. Prithvi Shaw holes out for just 2! A tight start from Rajasthan's Saurashtra pace duo. Samson will be happy with this, given what the Delhi batsmen did to the CSK bowlers in the Powerplay last game.

DC 2/0 in 1 Over: Sakariya starts with a dot ball. A slip in place for Shaw. Loud appeal for lbw off the second delivery as it darts back in and hits him on the thigh pad. Not reviewed, rightly so. Shaw gets off the mark with a single. Brilliant start from the left-arm seamer. Just two off it in the end.

Out come the Delhi openers - Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan. Both have been in steallar form. Shaw will take strike. Chetan Sakariya with the new ball.
