The revamped Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Daredevils squads didn’t have greatest of starts to their campaigns as both failed to put a good fight in their opening games. Delhi was thumped down by KL Rahul’s fastest IPL fifty while RR had their batting decimated by the SRH bowlers in their first match. Now the focus shifts to Jaipur which will be hosting an IPL game for the first time since 2014. RR’s last appearance at their fortress came during the 2013 edition of the CLT20.
