Cricket is a great leveller and Rajasthan Royals must have realised it on Friday after being thrashed by Delhi Capitals. The Rajasthan-based outfit had taken a dig at Delhi Capitals earlier this season after the latter’s winning start in IPL 2020 came to an end and the Delhi-based outfit made sure to return the favour on Friday.
Delhi Capitals thrashed Royals by 46 runs to continue their impressive run in the ongoing tournament. It was a dominating performance from the high-flying Delhi Capitals as they registered their fifth win in six games and move to the top of the points table.
At a venue where all the previous innings had yielded 200 or more runs, Delhi Capitals ended on 184 for 8 after being asked to bat first. Shimron Hetmyer top-scored with a 24-ball 45 runs knock while Marcus Stoinis scored 39. For Royals, Jofra Archer picked three for 24 off his four overs.
Royals had previously chased down two 200-plus totals at the same venue and must have fancied their chances against Delhi Capitals. However, they failed miserably with the bat again and were all out just 138 with Rahul Tewatia’s 38 being the top-score.
Delhi Capitals have the last laugh:
After the contest ended on the field, Delhi Capitals re-ignited the fight on Twitter. The Delhi-based outfit hilariously mocked Royals for one of their old tweets. Last month, Royals had taken a dig at Delhi Capitals after the latter’s loss to Sunrisers Hyderabad.
It was Delhi Capitals’ first loss of the season and that had made Royals the only team with a 100 percent winning record in IPL 2020 at that stage. But since then, Delhi Capitals have won three games on the trot while Royals have lost four in a row.
