IPL 2022 Points Table, Orange Cap, Purple Cap: The 34th match of the Tata Indian Premier League (IPL) saw Delhi Capitals (DC) lock horns with Rajasthan Royals (RR) in the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. The Sanju Samson spearheaded Rajasthan Royals defeated the Capitals by 15 runs and won the contest.
Skipper Sanju Samson lost the toss for the sixth time in the tournament and was asked to bat first. Rajasthan openers Jos Buttler and Devdutt Padikkal were in a great run of form. Both the batters enjoyed their outing and provided a massive 155 runs opening stand.
Southpaw Devdutt Padikkal (54 off 3) completed his half-century and departed, while Jos Buttler slammed his third century of the season against Delhi Capitals. Buttler scored 116 runs in 65 deliveries with the help of nine boundaries and as many maximums.
Skipper Sanju Samson played his little cameo and whacked away the DC bowlers. Samson muscled 46 runs in just 19 deliveries and helped Rajasthan Royals post the highest total of the season, 222/2 in 20 overs.
The response from Delhi Capitals was quite commendable as their openers kickstarted the chase on a bright note. Despite openers providing a brisk start to the innings, DC’s middle order looked fragile and lost timely wickets.
Despite calculative efforts from Rishabh Pant, Lalit Yadav and Rovman Powell, Delhi Capitals eventually fell 15 runs short in the chase and lost the game.
