The match which was expected to witness an intense battle in order to intensify the middle-order fight in the IPL 2022 points table, was bagged comfortably by Delhi Capitals. DC, who chose to bowl first after winning the toss, registered a comprehensive win over Rajasthan Royals by eight wickets with 11 balls remaining. As Royals pitched in with willows first, Ravi Ashwin (50 off 38) and Devdutt Padikkal (48 off 30) were at the forefront of the run-scoring game.
Though the opening and lower order failed terribly for RR, an out-of-the-blue fifty by Ashwin (1st in T20) made sure that they post a fine total of 160 runs on the board after losing six wickets. Chetan Sakariya was the best bowling man from the Capitals’ setup as he picked two wickets while conceding miserly at 5.80.

When it came to Delhi’s chasing game, the early dismissal of Srikar Bharat didn’t matter much as David Warner and Mitchell Marsh carried the remaining responsibilities with utmost ease and perfection. While Marsh was the show stopper with his 89 off 62, David Warner’s 52 runs came as the best support for his national teammate, in DC’s cause. Trent Boult and Yuzvendra Chahal picked one wicket each for RR.
Winning skipper, Rishabh Pant said:
Very close to a perfect game. Always believe there’s room for improvement. When you know the wicket is going to turn, little bit not much, there’s an opportunity to both bowl first or bat first. In the toss I said anything around 140-160 would be good for us, and we got 160. Destiny is always on your hands, you can look to give 100 percent. Fielding wise we can be better. He got typhoid or something like that (talking about Shaw), doctor told me that.
Losing skipper, Sanju Samson said:
Very disappointing night. We were few runs short, and few wickets short in the middle. While we were batting the wicket was two paced. We were 15-20 runs short. While bowling second we dropped a few catches. Really disappointed, but we would like to come back in the next game. I never thought it (Marsh’s lbw) could have been pad, we thought it came off the bat. We need to come back stronger after losing any game in IPL, and I hope we come back stronger. We have done that in the past. Hetmyer will be back soon.
Player of the match, Mitchell Marsh said:
Was a tough game. Physically it’s tough when you bowl a bit and bat a bit. Slower balls and cutters, they were tough to score. 160 was par. But it’s about one good partnership. The first four-five overs of powerplay were about as tough a batting as I’ve had in T20 cricket. It was swinging, bit of seam there and there was bounce. Reminds me of Perth Stadium this wicket. Felt like the last couple of games I’ve got back to hitting the ball like I wanted to. I honestly thought I smashed it first, wasn’t worried one bit. Which is probably a good thing because I tend to look guilty when I think I’m out.
