IPL 2018 RR vs DD: A rain-affected match in Jaipur saw Rajasthan Royals emerging victorious by 10 runs (D/L Method). RR who batted first had to end their innings at 153/5 in 17.5 overs because of rain. When the play resumed, Delhi Daredevils were handed a difficult task of chasing 71 runs in 6 overs and what added to their misery was the wicket of Colin Munro on the very first delivery after a mix-up in the middle with Glenn Maxwell. Maxwell on the other hand never looked comfortable and played a lot of dot balls that put DD on the backfoot. Delhi kept on losing wickets at regular intervals and fell short of 10 runs eventually.
