DC vs RR Live Score: Fans got to witness another high-scoring thriller in the IPL 2022 between Delhi Capitals and Rajasthan Royals at DY Patil Sports Academy on Friday. Needing 36 runs in the final over, Rovman Powell revived some hope after he hit three sixes in the first three balls off Obed McCoy. The third ball, apparently, was a no-ball, however, the umpire didn’t send it upstairs. This led to a controversy and a fuming Rishabh Pant told the Delhi batters to come back to the dressing room.
However, after some drama, the play was resumed and Delhi lost momentum. Powell couldn’t hit a six, thereafter, and, in the end, Delhi fell 15 runs short of the target. Earlier, Jos Buttler notched his third century of the ongoing season. The English cricketer has been in outstanding form in the tournament. He wasn’t getting the timing right in the first five overs of the innings.
However, once he got going, there was no one stopping him. Buttler ended up scoring a sensational knock of 116 runs in 65 balls, a knock which was studded with 9 fours and as many sixes. Devdutt Padikkal gave valuable support to Buttler, who scored 54 runs in 35 balls, including 7 fours and 2 sixes.
Samson, in the end, played an unbeaten knock of 46 runs in 19 balls, including 5 fours and 3 sixes.
Delhi fall short of 15 runs
In reply, Delhi Capitals started off strongly but David Warner couldn’t convert the start into a bigger score. Warner got out after scoring 28 runs in 14 balls, a knock which was laced with 5 fours and 1 six. Prithvi Shaw and Rishabh Pant kept the hopes alive, however, both of them couldn’t tow the team over the line and get out at crucial stages in the team. Shaw made 37 off 27, while Pant scored 44 off 24 balls.
Rajasthan bowlers exhibit a sensational display with the ball. Barring Obed McCoy, all the other bowlers bowled well. Prasidh Krishna returned with impressive figures of 3 for 22 in 4 overs. Ravichandran Ashwin also picked 2 wickets for 32 runs in 4 overs.
