Delhi Capitals go on top

Well, this has been a death bowling masterclass from both teams, but it is the Delhi Capitals who have won this. It was closer than the 13-run margin that the scorecard suggests. DC, by virtue of their sixth win in eight games, are at the top of the points table. DC will be mighty impressed with the extreme pace of Nortje who clocked 155 kmph quite easily and regularly. With Rabada, Ashwin and Axar rounding off their bowling, they look a really difficult team to beat.
Shikhar Dhawan's 33-ball 57 was immensely vital as well as it set the platform for Shreyas Iyer, who scored a half century himself. There was no death-over flourish from either team this time though as bowlers came to the party.

That's it from us tonight, but do join us for the coverage of RCB vs KXIP tomorrow. Till then, it's a wrap on Firstpost. Stay safe, good night.

Anrich Nortje is the Man of the Match

Nortje: Did not know I bowled 156 kph. I thought he (Buttler) plays them (scoops) really well. I was touch too full but he played it really well. I thought I would stick to my strength and maybe he was expecting something else, maybe a short ball, but I stuck to my strength. We have got some good coaches, working with KG, other fast bowlers has been great. Enjoying this experience. It is really good to be playing. 

23:31 (IST)

Shikhar Dhawan on behalf of injured Shreyas Iyer:

"He (Iyer) is in a bit of pain, but his shoulder his moving, luckily. We will get a report tomorrow. We kept the energy gfoing, we knew their battig isn't too deep. we knew we had an experienced bowling attack. Everytime we needed a wicket, the bowlers delivered. Tushar was very smart as well. He took the important wicket of Stokes that turned the momentum in our favour. We want to keep the momentum going and stay at the top of the table."

23:16 (IST)

Steve Smith, RR captain: Disappointing one. We got off to a good start. We lost a couple of wickets. We lost wickets in succession. We needed to take deeper. We thought we bowled pretty well. We restricted them to a par score on the wicket. Batting wise, guys were getting in and getting out. 

23:12 (IST)

After 20 overs,Rajasthan Royals 148/8 ( Rahul Tewatia 14 , )

Excellent last over from Tushar, and an overall death bowling exhibition from Delhi Capitals. Rabada and Nortje didn't give an inch, and Tushar didn't crumble under pressure. He stuck to his lengths, and was too good for Gopal and Tewatia. DC win by 13 runs. 

23:10 (IST)

That's it. Tushar gets Gopal on the last ball after conceding a boundary the previous ball. Delhi Capitals have won by 13 runs. 

23:04 (IST)

After 19 overs,Rajasthan Royals 140/7 ( Rahul Tewatia 12 , Shreyas Gopal 1)

Rabada to bowl the 19th, and he delivers an excellent over. This is death bowling masterclass. Three runs and a wicket. 

23:02 (IST)

Archer is gone! Rabada troubled him all through with his change in pace until Archer squeezes one straight to Rahane at cover point.

22:58 (IST)

After 18 overs,Rajasthan Royals 137/6 ( Rahul Tewatia 10 , Jofra Archer 1)

29 needed of 18. Not too many, but the pitch is already playig tricks. It is stopping and gripping, just what they predicted at the toss. Meanwhile, here's Nortje. Uthappa tries to lap that but is beaten by the slower one. Then, Tewatia's swipe takes the leading edge but the ball falls safely. Something's gotta give, as they say, and it does! He bowls Uthappa with a 150 kmph yorker and follows it with a 154 kmph delivery to the new man Archer. This has been an excellent over thus far. Lots of field changes there and Nortje foxes Tewatia with a (relatively) slower one slanting across him. Single off the last ball but that was an excellent over.

22:54 (IST)

Forget slower ones, this, at 149.6 kmph is an absolute screamer. Nortje yorks Uthappa as ressure mounts on RR.

Preview: Delhi Capitals take on Rajasthan Royals in the 30th game of the Indian Premier League in Dubai.

Rajasthan Royals will be looking to carry forward the confidence from their win over Sunrisers Hyderabad. That win would have been a massive relief after four losses on the trot. They are third from the bottom with six points and would be looking to achieve consistency now. It seemed as if the struggle story would continue in the SRH match as well after they were 78/5 from 12 overs in the chase of 159, but Rahul Tewatia and Riyan Parag showed great resilience and maturity to pull off the chase.

Tewatia has been consistently performing well with the bat and ball and he will be their go-to man this time around as well. Parag getting some form would be a huge shot in the arm for the middle order. The top order needs to step up though, these are some of the big names in Jos Buttler, Steve Smith and Sanju Samson. Samson has fluffed after a solid start in the first two matches. It will be interesting to see where Ben Stokes bats, he opened in the last match but the move didn't work. The other question is whether RR will persist with Robin Uthappa who has been struggling to get runs under his belt.

The bowling department did well against SRH. Jofra Archer, who's been brilliant in the powerplay, and Tewatia will be the key against a formidable DC batting line-up.

After three wins in a row, DC lost against Mumbai Indians in the last match. The injury to Rishabh Pant has given them a selection headache. In the last match, they had to drop Shimron Hetmyer who was slowly finding his groove and get in wicketkeeper Alex Carey. Ajinkya Rahane too had to be drafted in. A lot will be expected of Carey in that middle order.

It seemed like a rare off day for DC against Mumbai Indians. They, however, need to step up their fielding. Prithvi Shaw had a tough time against Mumbai Indians and it's these small things that can turn matches.

The pitches are getting slower and batsmen are finding it difficult to score. Adaptability will be key going into the match.

With RR gaining some momentum and DC looking to bounce back, we can expect an intriguing encounter.
