Rajasthan Royals defeated Delhi Capitals by 3 wickets as they chased down the 148-run target with two balls to spare. David Miller top-scored with 62 off 43 balls while Chris Morris slammed 36 off 18 delivers to hand a terrific win to the Royals. Now, Delhi Capitals chairman Parth Jindal shared a Tweet after his team lost their first game of IPL 2021. Jindal’s tweet had resemblance to KKR co-owner Shah Rukh Khan’s response after his team collapsed to a 10-run loss to Mumbai Indians despite being on a commanding position for the better part of the match. RR were struggling at 42 for 5, while chasing 148 for victory but let them get away from that situation as David Miller (62 off 43 balls) and Chris Morris (36 off 18 balls) showed their class to take RR home in 19.4 overs.
Very difficult to digest this loss after a very good fight by the lower order and the bowlers - we will learn from this and come back a better and smarter unit - well played @DelhiCapitals - good fight back - let’s bounce back on Sunday - congratulations to @rajasthanroyals— Parth Jindal (@ParthJindal11) April 15, 2021
“Very difficult to digest this loss after a very good fight by the lower order and the bowlers,” tweeted Jindal. “We will learn from this and come back a better and smarter unit - well played @DelhiCapitals - good fight back - let’s bounce back on Sunday - congratulations to @rajasthanroyals,” he added. Batting first, DC were restricted to 147 for 8 despite a 51-run fluent knock from captain Pant. Left-arm seamer Jaydev Unadkat, who was making a comeback into the match, returned with brilliant figures of 3 for 15 in his 4 overs. In reply, RR were at one stage 42 for 5 but Miller hit 62 off 43 balls to resurrect the innings and then Chris Morris smashed 4 sixes in the last 2 overs to take RR home with 2 balls and 3 wickets in hand.
