No success in middle overs
The Rajasthan Royals (RR) bowlers, who took wickets in the opening and death overs, did not get wickets in the middle overs. Due to which the match-winning partnership between Dhawan and Shreyas Iyer happened.
Steve Smith’s flop show continues
After leaving the first two matches in this tournament for Rajasthan Royals, the process of bad batting of captain Steve Smith continues. In this match too, Smith could not show anything special and got out after scoring 1 run.
Big partnership not formed
Chasing a target of 162 runs, a good partnership was made for the Rajasthan Royals for the fourth wicket between Ben Stokes and Sanju Samson. But after the dismissal of these two, the wickets of the team started to decline.
Middle order performed disappointingly
The dismal performance of Rajasthan Royals middle-order batting continued against Delhi Capitals. Apart from Ben Stokes, no other batsman could stay on the wicket for long.
