Shikhar Dhawan REVEALS Delhi’s Strategy After The Win Over Rajasthan

Delhi Capitals notched up 161/7 thanks to gritty fifties from Shikhar Dhawan and Shreyas Iyer. Buttler's hard hitting seemed to infuriate Anrich Nortje who got quicker with each delivery, each ball averaging over 150 kmph.

Rajasthan Royals' (RR) skipper Steve Smith said his team failed to deal with the variation in speed of Delhi Capitals' (DC) bowlers, as the Royals succumbed to a defeat in the Indian Premier League (IPL) match here on Wednesday.

Anrich Nortje (2/33) was bowling in the mid 150 kmph range with toe-crushing yorkers while Kagiso Rabada's (1/28) worldwide experience proved to be pure gold dust leaving rookie Tushar Deshpande (2/37) to defend 21 runs in his debut IPL game, which he did with elan. Ashwin finished with figures of 1 for 17 and bowled 10 dot balls in his 4 overs - on par with the ever-improving Nortje.

"Really happy for him, but not happy for the batter". "I did not think he would do it again, but he played the shot once again on the next delivery".

Germany recorded its second straight draw after Serge Gnabry scored the equalizer to make it 3-3 and secure a point on home soil. Spain has seven points from four matches, one point more than Germany and Ukraine, followed by Switzerland with two points.

Being asked about the status of Iyer's injury during the post-match presentation ceremony, Dhawan opened up on receiving clarity tomorrow. The Shreyas Iyer-led team easily defended the target of 162-runs put up on the scoreboard.

Delhi Capitals reclaimed top spot in the IPL with a superb comeback win over Rajasthan Royals in a game dominated by some fantastic fast bowling.

During the run-chase, Rajasthan's Ben Stokes and Buttler scored 37 runs in the first three overs, taking RR to a blistering start. "I was practicing that shot (reverse sweep) for a few months but unfortunately, it didn't go my way today", he smiled. And to make matters worse for themselves, the Capitals gave the in-form Rahul Tewatia a reprieve off the first ball he faced when Anrich Nortje dropped an easy catch at fine leg. Maybe he was expecting something else off that delivery.

It was his battle with Jos Buttler that set-up the epic clash. Luckily I stuck to it.

He also credited right -arm pacer Tushar Deshpande, who made his IPL debut on Wednesday, for his courageous effort. "Enjoying my experience with them". "We got a good bowling side and looking forward to sealing the game as our bowlers are in good form", he told the host broadcasters during the mid-innings break.
