RR vs DC Match Summary: Delhi Capitals playing without Kagiso Rabada have dismantled Rajasthan Royals batting line up, bundling them out for just 115 runs on Saturday.
It has been a dream IPL season for Ishant Sharma who once again showed the world that he is as effective in white-ball cricket as he is with red ball cricket.
Ishant Sharma scalped three wickets in the power play overs to leave RR reeling at 30 for 4 in 6 overs. Ishant Sharma accounted for Ajinkya Rahane’s wicket in his first over, followed by Livingstone in the second, and Lomrol in the third.

Amit Mishra took it from him from there on, who went through RR middle order. Mishra also had a wonderful day at the office, claiming three wickets in his quota of four overs.
There has been quite of few errors from Rajasthan in the game and sending their in-form Riyan Parag at as low as number six position was certainly one of them.
Riyan Parag struck his first half-century and in the process guided his side to 115 at the end of 20 overs. Parag scored 50 runs off 49 deliveries before he handed a catch at long-off to Rutherford in the last ball of the innings.
RR vs DC Match Summary: Rajasthan Royals ended up scoring 115 for nine after 20 overs.
In pursuit of the run-chase, openers Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw started off well until New Zealand spinner Ish Sodhi accounted for both Shikhar and Shaw in two back-to-back deliveries to bring his team back into the game.
However, Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant then started the recovery, forming a 33-run partnership between them before Iyer lost his wicket in the eighth over of innings to Shreyas Gopal.
However, a resolute Rishabh Pant made sure he stays till the end and take his home against Rajasthan Royals at home. Unlike the previous occasion, Pant didn’t throw his wicket away and helped his side earn the ninth win in the tournament. Rishabh Pant scored 58 runs off 38 balls, including five sixes and two fours.
