A disciplined bowling by the Royals led by Jofra Archer allowed the formidable Delhi Capitals batting lineup to pose a challenging 161 after 20 overs. The track which is on the slower side poses a great task for the Royals batsmen who are proven stroke makers. At the end of 10 overs of the 30th match of IPL 2020, DC's total is 79/2. In the last 5 overs, Delhi Capitals managed to score 46 runs without losing any wicket. Shikhar Dhawan was the highest scorer with 57 runs. The highest partnership of the innings was between Shreyas Iyer and Shikhar Dhawan who contributed 85 runs to the innings.
Earlier, Delhi Capitals captain Shreyas Iyer won the toss and opted to bat first against Rajasthan Royals in Dubai. Rishabh Pant did not clear the fitness test so Alex Carey will continue to keep wickets for Delhi Capitals. DC handed debut to right-amr pacer Tushar Deshpande in place of Harshal Patel. Royals on the other hand, went in with an unchanged side. The Capitals had beaten RR by 46 runs last week and Steve Smith’s men will look to return the compliment when they meet for the second time in the tournament. The Shreyas Iyer-led side is placed at the second spot in the points table with five wins and two defeats from seven matches.
