Samson departed for a diamond duck and the wicket pushed Rajasthan on back-foot straightaway after DC captain won the toss and asked the hosts to bat first. Sportzpics

Ajinkya Rahane blasted a 63-ball 105 to give Rajasthan Royals a solid base to post a massive total in the end. Rahane had been under close watch after his dull performance with the bat in the tournament till this match. After fall of the first wicket, he did not hold himself back and continued to attack the bowlers and reached his second IPL century in the 17th over of the innings. Sportzpics
