OUT! BOWLED! What about that! What about that! Just the start that Rajasthan wanted. Full ball around off, a hint of away movement as well. Shaw comes on the front foot and looks to drive. Gets an inside edge and the ball goes onto hit the stumps. Just what the doctor ordered for the Men in Pink.
We are all set to begin at the Ring of Fire. The umpires make their way out, followed by the Rajasthan players. Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw are the openers for Delhi. Jofra Archer to start off proceedings for Rajasthan with the ball. Let’s play…
Ben Stokes is up for a chat. Says that they needed the win last game to get back on the road. Hopes they can continue that momentum going forward. Stokes adds that Rajasthan need to take one game at a time. Important to now win more games given the stage we are in, he says.
Rajasthan (Unchanged Playing XI) – Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler (WK), Steven Smith (C), Sanju Samson, Robin Uthappa, Riyan Parag, Rahul Tewatia, Jofra Archer, Shreyas Gopal, Jaydev Unadkat, Kartik Tyagi.
Delhi (Playing XI) – Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Ajinkya Rahane, Shreyas Iyer (C), Alex Carey (WK), Marcus Stoinis, Axar Patel, Tushar Deshpande (IN FOR HARSHAL PATEL), Ravichandran Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje.
Steven Smith, Rajasthan’s captain, says that he would have opted to bat first as well, had he won the toss. Now, it is to bowl well and restrict them to as low a total as possible. Adds that it is a used wicket. Smith says that it is nice to get a win after 4 straight losses. Informs they are unchanged and Stokes will open.
Shreyas Iyer, Delhi’s captain, says that he wants to bat first as he expects the pitch to consistently get slower. Adds that everyone has a rough idea about the wicket as they have spent a good deal of time in the middle. Says that they are definitely missing Pant. Informs that Tushar Deshpande comes in for Harshal Patel.
Pitch Report – Pommie Mbangwa and Kevin Pietersen are the pitch analysts. Pietersen says that the pitch is a lot drier than in the past 3 weeks. Very little grass is there, he further adds. Mbangwa says that the ball has turned a lot and expects more turn in the games to come. Win the toss and bat, both say unanimously.
Round 1 between these two went to Iyer’s men. How will Round 2 go? Delhi have been unfliching this season, well almost. 5 wins and 2 losses from their 7 games. Rajasthan, well, 3 wins and 4 losses from their 7 matches. Delhi were on a 3-match winning streak before Mumbai halted them. The Men in Pink meanwhile pulled off a heist against Hyderabad in their last game. How will these results play an impact on today’s game? Stay tuned as we find out. Toss and team updates coming up shortly…
