The ground at this venue is the smallest of all this 13th edition of fantasy cricket league IPL 2020. Shreyas Iyer and Co are doing a fabulous work here in this new season of Indian Premier League. They are the top side who performed a reasonably well till now and won their 5 matches out of their 6 games played so far and standing at the 2nd spot in the points table. Jos Buttler, Rishabh Pant and Kagiso Rabada are one of those players who must be a part of your Dream11 fantasy cricket team so as to score much more points and win big awards.

Harshal to Gopal- OUT

Harshal Patel to Shreyas Gopal, out Caught by Hetmyer!!  Who else but Hetmyer. It's clearly into his fingers, but when you've taken the decision to the third umpire, why not play around with a zillion replays, waste time, and then give it out. Yes. Shreyas Gopal c Hetmyer b Harshal Patel 2(3)

4 more overs to go- RR need 78 runs

Rajasthan Royals need a miracle from here if they need to win this match, and no is a better candidate than Rahul Tewatia to do the arduous work. He is batting on 13 runs in 14 balls. RR need at least 20 runs from each over to win the match. 

100 comes up for RR

Rajasthan Royals reach 100 run mark in the 15th over. Rajasthan need 85 more runs in less than five over to win the match. All hopes on Rahul Tewatia

Rahul Tewaita last hope for RR

Rajasthan Royals have already lost six wickets. Their last hope resides in Rahul Tewatia who on this same ground snatched a victory form Chennai Super kings hands in this season only. Can he emulate the performance again today?

Stoinis finally departs

U-19 star Yashasvi Jaiswal has been a constant player on one end for Rajasthan Royals. Stoinis finally departs the youngster. Clean bowled no chance for him. Jaiswal b Stoinis 34(36) [4s-1 6s-2]. Things have slipped out for RR hands.

Sanju Samson the rescuer?

Sanju Samson has a big responsibility to take his team out of this adverse situation. Jaiswal has gained some confidence and it is a perfect opportunity for him to showcase his talent at such a big stage, but the major expectation is from Sanju Samson.

Nortje to Smith-OUT

Nortje is brought back to the attack by Iyer. And on the very first delivery of his over smith flicks the ball but straight into Hetmyer hands. The decision is reviewed and he is given out. Big blow for Rajasthan Royals. RR 56/2 in 8.1 Overs

Rajasthan complete 50 runs

After an early scare due to Buttler departure, Rajasthan gained balance and reach 50 runs in seven overs. Steve Smith is looking in good shape and time to time hitting boundaries to release the pressure. Jaiswal still looks nervous.

Powerplay over for RR

At the end of Powerplay, Rajasthan Royals are 41/1. They have lost Jus Buttler.

Rabada to Smith- SIX

Ashwin gets Delhi Capitals their first wicket. A brilliant catch by Shikhar Dhawan by diving on his left followed by a typical kabaddi celebration by Dhawan. RR lose key Buttler. RR 15/1 in 2.3 overs

Tyagi to Hetmyer- OUT

Hetmyer He was looking for a hat-trick of sixes, but he slogs it straight to Tewatia near the boundary at wide long-on. Hetmyer c Rahul Tewatia b Kartik Tyagi 45(24) [4s-1 6s-5] DC 149/7 in 17 overs

Five Overs left in DC innings

Delhi Capitals are 122/5 in 15 overs. Hetmyer is still at the crease along with Harshal Patel. Hetmyer needs to show the Caribbean power-hitting today. Can he emulate Pooran's show tonight? Delhi Capitals have high hopes from him and from Harshal Patel as well.

SIX- 100 come up for DC in style

Hetmyer hits a six on Tye delivery to bring DC total to 100 runs. Delhi Capitals are yet to accelerate. This is the right time for them to accelerate the run rate. 

Stoinis and Hetmyer need to pace up

Delhi is yet to reach the 100 runs mark. Stoinis and Hetmyer need to buckle up now since only eight overs are left in the innings. Anything less than 200 is not sufficient for this ground. DC 96/4 after 12 overs.

Half of the innings over for DC

Delhi Capitals have a pretty bad start, after losing openers and Iyer in the powerplay, Rishabh Pant is the latest addition to the list of departures. Stoinis and Hetmyer have big responsibility over their shoulders. They have brought Delhi out of trouble in the past also, same is expected from them today.

Another Run out- This time it's Rishabh Pant

What is happening here? Another run out. Pant blindly runs towards Stoinis who was clearly not interested. A blunder by pant, he has lost the great opportunity to score big. Pant gone for 5 runs in 9 balls. 

Change in the bowling attack

Opportunity gone- Prithvi Shaw saved
