Delhi Capitals defeated Rajasthan Royals by 20 runs to keep their hopes alive for the IPL 2024 playoffs.

Delhi Capitals (DC) defeated Rajasthan Royals (RR) in the 56th match of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024. This match took place on May 7, 2024, at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi. Sanju Samson, the RR captain, won the toss and decided to bowl first. DC openers Abishek Porel (65 in 36 balls) and Jake Fraser-McGurk (50 in 20 balls) combined for 60 in 4.2 overs to get their team off to a flying start.

Then RR struck back, taking the wickets of the openers, Shai Hope (1), Axar Patel (15), and Rishabh Pant (15), and DC seemed set to end with less than 200 runs in their 20 overs. However, Tristan Stubbs (41 in 20 balls) and Gulbadin Naib (19) helped DC finish with a score of 221/8 in 20 overs. R Ashwin with 3/24 was the pick of RR bowlers.

In response, Yashasvi Jaiswal failed to score and was out for four, while Jos Buttler was dismissed for 19 runs. Sanju Samson led the chase with a magnificent 86 in 46 balls, including eight fours and six sixes.

However, his dismissal in the 16th over marked the end of RR’s attempt to pursue the massive score. Mukesh Kumar bowled a slow length ball, and as Sanju pushed it towards long on, Shai Hope rushed in for a superb catch near the boundary.

The fight in the RR ceased when he got out. The final nail in the coffin was Rovman Powell’s wicket, and RR could only score 201/8 in 20 overs. Kuldeep Yadav was the Player of the Match for his 2/25, with both wickets coming in the 18th over.
