IPL 2018: Rajasthan beat Delhi by 10 runs in rain-curtailed thriller


Rajasthan beat Delhi by 10 runs through the D/L method to make their first IPL match at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in five years memorable on Wednesday.

Chasing a revised target of 71 in six overs after a long rain interruption, Delhi started nightmarishly and lost Colin Munro off the first ball – runout without facing a delivery. DD’s chase heavily depended on Glenn Maxwell who had joined the team ahead of this game.

Coming from fellow Australian Aaron Finch’s wedding festivities, Maxwell (17 off 12 balls) looked terribly out of touch and that pretty much ended Delhi’s hopes. Rishabh Pant (20 off 14 balls) and Chris Morris (17* off 7 balls) tried their best but it wasn’t enough as DD suffered their second successive defeat.
