The match, which was expected to witness an intense battle to intensify the fight of the middle order in the IPL 2022 points table, was wrapped up comfortably by Capitals of Delhi. DC, who chose to bowl first after winning the toss, recorded a comprehensive eight-wicket victory over the Rajasthan Royals with 11 balls remaining. While the Royals threw in first with willows, Ravi Ashwin (50 out of 38) and Devdutt Padikkal (48 out of 30) led the way to score points.

Although the opening and lower order failed miserably for RR, an out-of-the-blue fifty from Ashwin (1st in T20) left them with a fine total of 160 runs on the board after losing six wickets. Chetan Sakariya was the top bowler in the Capitals lineup, taking two wickets while cashing stingy at 5.80.

When it came to the Delhi chase game, Srikar Bharat’s early dismissal didn’t matter much as David Warner and Mitchell Marsh carried the remaining responsibilities with the utmost ease and perfection. While Marsh was the showstopper with his 89 out of 62, David Warner’s 52 runs came as the best support for his national teammate, in DC’s case. Trent Boult and Yuzvendra Chahal each chose one wicket RR.

Winning skipper, Rishabh Pant said:

Very close to a perfect game. Always believe there is room for improvement. If you know the wicket is going to turn, a little not much, there is an option to both bowl first and bat first. In the toss I said anything around 140-160 would be good for us, and we got 160. The fate is always in your hands, you can look to give 100 percent. We can be better on the pitch. He got typhoid or something like that (talking about Shaw), the doctor told me that.

Losing skipper, Sanju Samson said:

Very disappointing night. We were few runs short and few wickets in the middle. While we were batting, the wicket was within two strides. We came up 15-20 runs short. During the second bowling we dropped a few catches. Really disappointed but we would love to come back in the next game. I never thought it (Marsh’s lbw) could be a toad, we thought it came from the bat. We need to come back stronger after losing a 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 match. Physically it’s tough if you bowl a little and bat a little. Slower balls and cutters, they were hard to score. 160 was par. But it is about one good collaboration. The first four-five-overs of power play were about as tough as I’ve had in T20 cricket. It swayed, little seam there and there was bounce. Reminds me of Perth Stadium this wicket. It felt like I could hit the ball the way I wanted the last few games again. I really thought I broke it first, didn’t worry for a second. Which is probably a good thing because I tend to look guilty when I think I’m gone.
