This match started with DC winning the toss and opting to bat first. Today, then again gave Ajinkya Rahana in the playing 11 but he again failed to help the team by scoring runs. If this continues for 1-2 more matches then Rahane will be definitely again be dropped from the playing 11 of RR.
Also, Jaiswal was dropped by RR from the playing 11 as he continued performing really poor in all the matches he has played in this IPL 2020, and in place of him, Stokes was taken in the team.
So, from DC as usual Shaw and Dhawan came to bat, and the first over was bowled by Archer. In the first bowl of the match, Shaw got out and it was really disappointing for DC fans as Shaw is a very crucial player who is always responsible to give DC a good and fast start.
After he got out, Rahane came to bat and he also got out on 2 runs in 9 balls and this was really disappointing performance of Rahane and if this continued for long then Rahane will be definitely dropped from the DC team as he has been given chance in place of Rishab Pant and Pant was playing really better than him.
After Rahane got out, Shreyas Iyer came to bat, and he and Dhawan together performed extremely well and they both were the only reason because of which DC was able to cross 150 runs, and if they both have also not performed well then the compete team might have got out under 100 runs.
If this has happened then it will be really shameful for such a team which is at the top of the points table performing so badly. But the captain and vice-captain of the team played really well and performed their duty for their team with an extreme dedication which helped DC win this match and again grabbing its top spot.
In the 12th over, Dhawan got out after scoring 57 runs in just 33 balls and playing with a strike rate of 172+ which was very much required at that time. Shreyas Iyer, the captain of DC got out in the 16th over after scoring 53 runs in 43 balls.
After that, it was Stoinis and Alex playing on the ground and scoring runs for DC. Today RR’s bowler has played really well and it was only the poor performance of batters which make them lost their match. The team selectors should definitely make some changes in the team if they want RR to win as if it lost 1-2 more matches then it will definitely lose the complete chance of winning IPL 2020.
Stoinis scored 18 runs in 19 balls and got out and Alex scored 14 runs in 13 balls and got out. After that Axar got out on 7 runs in 4 balls. The total score of the DC team was 161 runs in 20 balls.
Also, RR bowlers have given a tremendous performance, especially Archer and Unadkat. Archer took 3 very important wickets and gave only 19 runs in 4 overs and his ER was 4.8 that is an extremely good ER. Unadkat also took two very important wickets. Other bowlers also performed really well.
Now it was RR’s turn to chase the 161 scores in order to win this match. From their side, Stokes and Buttler came to open and both of them performed nice. Stokes scored 41 runs in 35 balls and Buttler scored 22 runs in just 9 balls and they gave a very good start to RR and it was possible that RR may win the match by defeating the top team of IPL 2020.
After Butler got out, Smith came to bat and he got out on 1 run in 4 balls. This season, Smith has played really poor and this wasn’t expected from such a highly professional and determined player. RR fans have great hopes from Smith but he always failed to performed breaking all the hopes of the fans.
After Smith got out Samson came to play and he scores 25 runs in 18 balls and then got out. Today, if the DC batters have not played really well but the DC bowlers really impressed the fans from their performance and they helped their team win this match and again making its place on the top of the points table.
After Smason got out Uthappa came to bat and he scored decent runs. He scored 32 runs in 27 balls and got out. After that, it was Parag and Tewatia playing on the ground for the RR team in order to win the match as they were very close to the score. But all the batters after Uthappa failed to perform and by this RR again lost a very close match which they might have won.
Parag got out on 1 run in 2 balls and Tewatia got out on 14 runs in 18 balls. Archer also scored just 1 run in 4 balls and all the batters just came and wasted the balls and were a big reason because of which RR lost the match.
Gopal also got out on 6 runs in 4 balls. RR scored just 148 runs in 20 overs and hence DCwon the match by 13 runs and again cake to the top of the points table with the highest points. DC bowler has really impressed everyone and even the God of cricket, Sachin Tendulkar tweeted and appreciated the team.
Their teamwork has proved to be really worthwhile for all of them. Rabada, Nortje, and Ashwin played mind-blowing today and took the most important wickets of the match. Also, Axar Patel gave an appreciating performance and made the DC fans really satisfied.
