IPL 2020, DC vs RR Highlights: Delhi Capitals (DC) beat Rajasthan Royals (RR) by 13 runs.

DC, batting first, put up 161/7 in 20 overs. They were given some early jolts by Jofra Archer (3/19), as they were reduced to 10/2 in the third over. Shikhar Dhawan (57) counter-attacked against RR’s other bowlers, as DC reached the end of the Powerplay with 47/2. Shreyas Iyer (53) took charge after Dhawan’s wicket. RR were given a cracking start by Jos Buttler (22) and Ben Stokes (41), and Sanju Samson (25) built a steadying partnership with Stokes in the middle overs. Anrich Nortje (2/33) delivered the killer blow in the death overs with Robin Uthappa’s (32) wicket, after which RR could not keep up with the required run rate. They eventually reached 148/8 in their 20 overs, losing by 13 runs.
