In a closely contested Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 encounter, Delhi Capitals (DC) emerged victorious, securing a hard-fought win against the Rajasthan Royals (RR) by 20 runs in Match 55 on Tuesday (May 7). Despite a valiant effort from Sanju Samson, whose aggressive innings kept the Royals in the hunt, they were unable to chase down the challenging target set by the Capitals.

Jake Fraser-McGurk and Ishan Porel lay the foundation for DC

The Delhi Capitals commenced their innings with a dynamic display of power-hitting, led by Jake Fraser-McGurk, who set the tone with a blazing half-century. Abishek Porel complemented his partner’s aggressive approach with a well-compiled innings, anchoring the middle order with calculated strokes. Despite losing wickets at regular intervals, the Capitals managed to post a formidable total of 221/8, courtesy of crucial contributions from Tristan Stubbs and Gulbadin Naib in the latter overs.

Ravichandran Ashwin’s crafty spin

Facing a daunting target of 222 runs, the Rajasthan Royals’ bowling unit faced an uphill task against the Capitals’ formidable batting lineup. Trent Boult and Sandeep Sharma provided early breakthroughs to stem the flow of runs, while Ravichandran Ashwin’s crafty spin yielded three crucial wickets in the middle overs. Despite their efforts, the Royals struggled to contain the Capitals’ aggressive onslaught, conceding a challenging total at the end of the innings.

Sanju Samson’s heroics keep RR’s hopes alive

In pursuit of 222 runs, the Rajasthan Royals’ innings got off to a shaky start, losing early wickets to the pace duo of Khaleel Ahmed and Mukesh Kumar. Jos Buttler and Sanju Samson attempted to stabilize the innings with determined knocks, but the Capitals’ bowlers continued to apply pressure with disciplined lines and lengths. Despite a valiant effort from Sanju Samson, who played a scintillating knock of 86 runs, and contributions from Riyan Parag and Shubham Dubey, the Royals fell short of their target, managing to reach 201/8 in their allotted 20 overs.

DC’s bowling unit holds nerve despite Samson’s assault

The Delhi Capitals’ bowling attack produced a disciplined performance, restricting the Royals’ batting lineup with consistent line and length. Khaleel Ahmed’s fiery spell yielded crucial breakthroughs, while Mukesh Kumar and Kuldeep Yadav provided valuable support with timely wickets. Rasikh Salam’s impressive spell in the middle overs added further pressure on the Royals, preventing them from building substantial partnerships.

More time taken to confirm it’s not wide than they took on that catch decision. This is shamelessness.

It’s in his eyes. It always is. That burning desire to not only do well for his team, but push 10 others around him to Never. Give. Up.
