IPL 2021, Match 7: Rajasthan Royals vs Delhi Capitals (RR vs DC) – Fantasy Cricket Tips
Rajasthan Royals (RR)
In their IPL 2021 opening match, most of the bowlers failed to handle Punjab Kings (PBKS) batsmen. Only Chetan Sakariya got three wickets (3/31) while the most expensive cricketer in IPL Auction history South African cricketer Chris Morris had bowling figures of 4-0-41-2.
Among the Rajasthan Royals batsmen, only captain Sanju Samson crossed the 30-run mark as he became the first cricketer to score a century on IPL captaincy debut. He scored 119 off 63 balls (12 fours and 7 sixes) but just failed to secure the victory due to lack of support. Jos Buttler (25 runs off 13 balls), Shivam Dube (23 runs off 15 balls) and Riyan Parag (25 runs off 11 balls) played some good cameos but failed to play bigger innings.
Delhi Capitals (DC)
In their first match of the IPL 2021, Delhi Capitals bowlers Chris Woakes and Avesh Khan bowled really well as they finished with bowling figures of 3-0-18-2 and 4-0-23-2 respectively.
In the 189 runs chasing, openers Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw provided a strong start with 138 runs opening partnership. Shaw scored 72 off just 38 balls (9 fours and 3 sixes) and Dhawan scored 85 off 54 balls (10 fours and 2 sixes) as their batting performances were enough to end any chance for their oppositions, Chennai Super Kings (CSK).
