Man of the Match
That's all we have from this match. You can now switch tabs to follow all the coverage from the heavyweight clash between Mumbai and Chennai. See you there!
Yashasvi Jaiswal (60 off 31 balls) is picked for the Player of the Match award because of his initial onslaught with the bat - very vital in handing Rajasthan the early advantage.
Rajasthan were on the money from the word go with Trent Boult taking two wickets in his first over which was also a maiden. He ended with three wickets for 29 runs in his four overs with Yuzvendra Chahal also claiming three wickets under his belt. Ravichandran Ashwin took two crucial wickets and Sandeep Sharma chipped in with one at the end. This was a complete performance by the bowlers on a batting surface but credit goes to the batters who put a massive total on the board. Jos Buttler and Yashasvi Jaiswal scored half-centuries and Shimron Hetmyer provide the boost towards the end.
A comprehensive win by Rajasthan and they have proved the loss in their last game was just a blip! They win by 57 runs and will look to continue their winning momentum going forward. Delhi have now suffered their third consecutive defeat and they are in desperate need of their fortunes to change as they have had another poor game. Apart from a not-so-fluent knock from Warner and a promising stay at the crease for Lalit Yadav, there's nothing to write home about Delhi's fight with the blade.
