Rajasthan Royals take on Delhi Daredevils in the sixth match of 2018 IPL at the Sawai Mansingh stadium in Jaipur. Both Rajasthan and Delhi had fallen to a defeat each in their opening encounters of the tournament. While DD was swept aside by Kings XI Punjab, RR was dismissed by a rampant Surisers Hyderabad side.
Daredevils, in their opening encounter, were put into bat first and riding on Gautam Gambhir’s half-century had added 166 runs on the board. In reply, KL Rahul, on his KXIP debut, slammed the fastest ever IPL half-century and made light work of the total. Rajasthan Royals, on the other hand, failed to take off at all and were dismissed for a paltry 125, which Shikhar Dhawan and Kane Williamson chased down without breaking a sweat in 15.5 overs.
As far as DD are concerned, they are set to make a change as Glenn Maxwell is back to feature in the IPL after missing out on the first match because of Aaron Finch’s marriage. Dan Christain is expected to make way for him. Royals, though, might go in with the same side which took to the field against SRH.
