Delhi Capitals (DC) continued their impressive run in IPL 2019 as they cruised to their 7th win of the season, thumping the Chennai Super Kings on NRR to become the table toppers. Ajinkya Rahane batted with intent and powered the Rajasthan Royals (RR) to a big total. Rahane scored an unbeaten 63-ball 105 as the hosts finished on 191/6 despite a poor ending. Rishabh Pant’s unbeaten 36-ball 78 and Shikhar Dhawan’s 27-ball 54 at the top played a key role in helping Delhi chase down the target with four balls and six wickets to spare.
