Natarajan to bowl the last over. Starts with what appears a decent yorker until Archer somehow gets underneath it scoops it for a four. A horrible wide later, he nails one yorker after another. He is not allowing Tewatia to open his arms at all. Dot ball to Archer too, who ends the innings with a six on the last ball. Natarajan misses his length on that occasion, and Archer's swing makes it a full toss.

IPL 2020: RR edge CSK in mundane game, but Super Kings' youngsters deserve more from team management
CSK will no longer finish in the top-four, at least that’s what the team management has accepted. It is a weird one – mathematically, it is still possible.
Three-time winners CSK, who have been criticised for continuing with their old warhorses, suffered their seventh defeat in the ongoing IPL, this time to RR.

IPL 2020: AB de Villiers' ability to consistently maintain intensity and execute power-hitting makes him special
For a normal person or even for many international batsmen, it is common to see the batsman’s hands get in front of his head while trying to hit the ball hard. But de Villiers has mastered the art of controlling his tempo.
IPL 2020: Magical AB de Villiers powers Royal Challengers Bangalore to thrilling win over Rajasthan Royals

IPL 2020 Highlights, RR vs RCB Match, Full Cricket Score: AB de Villiers blitzkrieg takes Bangalore home with seven wickets in hand
Phew! What a chase! AB de Villiers arrived at the crease with 76 needed off 42 balls and he hit 55 of them from 22 balls with one four and six sixes. All through the innings the RCB batsmen were finding it difficult to get going. Paddikal struggled in the middle, Kohli could manage just one for and two sixes but then AB de Villiers batted on an altogether different wicket and pulled off a stunning win for RCB. That Unadkat 19th over which went for 25 runs was the turning point. May be Smith should have handed the penultimate over to Archer.
While Stokes will be an important cog in the RR wheel, the team will also have to fix its top order which has been short of runs in the last five games, leaving too much for the lower-order to get.
IPL 2020 Highlights, DC vs RR Match, Full Cricket Score: Delhi beat Rajasthan by 13 runs, collect two more points
Delhi Capitals go on topWell, 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.
Sunday's victory was the spark Rajasthan Royals needed to put their patchy campaign back on track though they still need a find a way to not lose too many wickets in powerplay.

Tewatia helped the Rajasthan Royals (RR) eke out a five-wicket victory against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) with a 28-ball 45 not out to snap their four-match losing streak in the IPL.
Rajasthan Royals win! Right then! Who would've thought it would come to this... eight needed off six balls. Khaleel goes full round the wickett to Parag, who hits straight for a couple. A single next ball means the left-hander Tewatia is on strike and Khaleel will bowl in his arc. Lots of field changes happening. Five needed off four. Khaleel goes length, and Tewatia plays it to deep square leg. A fumble from Vijay Shankar means a double to Tewatia. Khaleel goes slightly short next ball and Tewatia pulls it to long off for a single. Two needed off two. Are we headed to a super over?Young Parag on strike. The pitch seems to have evened out, funnily. Khaleel comes round the wicket, and that's it! He bowls a full toss and Riyan Parag calmly deposits it over covers for a six. RR win!
