IPL 2021: Miller-Morris Storming Batting, Rajasthan Thrilling Victory Over Delhi Capitals

Rajasthan Royals has opened an account in IPL 2021. 
Chris Morris, the most expensive player in the history of IPL auction, gave the team the first win of this season by hitting a six. Rajasthan Royals won the target of 148 runs from Delhi Capitals by three wickets with two balls to spare. While batting first, Delhi scored 147 runs for eight wickets with the help of captain Rishabh Pant's half-century. The Rajasthan bowlers did not allow the Delhi batsmen to bat openly. For Rajasthan, David Miller scored 62 and Chris Maurice scored 36 not out off 18 balls with four sixes. In such a situation, Rajasthan achieved the target for seven wickets in 19.4 overs. For Delhi, Avesh Khan took three and Chris Woakes and Kagiso Rabada took two wickets each. This is the first win in two matches of the venue while Delhi has got the first defeat in two matches.

Chasing the target, Rajasthan's condition was quite bad. The team lost the top order on 17 runs. Manan Vohra (9) was the first out. After hitting two consecutive fours off Chris Woakes, he again caught Kagiso Rabada in an attempt to hit the big shot. Only two balls later, Jos Buttler also started walking. The inside ball of Vox went behind with the edge of his bat, where Rishabh Pant took a dive and took a catch. Captain Sanju Samson opened the account with fours but two balls later, he caught a catch in the slip to Shikhar Dhawan. In such a situation, Shivam Dubey and David Miller came together at the crease. But after scoring two runs in seven balls, Dubey also threw the wicket. On the ball of Avesh Khan, he catches Dhawan in the slip.

Ryan Parag also disappointed the team today. He scored two runs off five balls and dodged Avesh Khan's slayer ball. He wanted to take a big shot but the ball went up in the air and Dhawan caught it easily. In such a situation, Rajasthan lost five batsmen for 42 runs. At such a time, Miller and Rahul Teotia handled the innings. Both added 48 runs for the sixth wicket. Both batsmen were seen in great colors. But Kagiso Rabada gave a big shock to Rajasthan by walking Tewatiya. He scored 19 runs off 17 balls with two fours. Miller then completed his half-century. He hit Avesh Khan for two consecutive sixes. But he was dismissed in the third try. He scored 62 runs in 43 balls with seven fours and two sixes.

In the end, Chris Maurice and Jaydev Unadkat shared an unbroken 46-run partnership and led the team to victory. Together, they blew five sixes.

Rajasthan stopped Delhi for 147 runs

Earlier, thanks to the bowling performance of the bowlers led by Jaydev Unadkat, Rajasthan Royals stopped the Delhi Capitals for 147 runs for eight wickets. Unadkat took three for 15 from four overs while Mustafizur Rahman took two wickets for 29 runs. For Delhi, captain Rishabh Pant played an innings of 51 runs before he was run out. Apart from them, only Tom Karan (21) and Lalit Yadav (20) were able to touch the 20-run mark. The exact bowling of the Royals can be gauged from the fact that not a single six was hit in Delhi's innings. Royals captain Sanju Samson won the toss and invited Delhi to bat first and their bowlers left no stone unturned to justify their decision. In the second over of the innings, Unadkat gave a good start to the Royals by getting Prithvi Shaw (2) caught by David Miller at the backward point with a slow ball.

Opener Shikhar Dhawan (9) wicketkeeper Samson caught a great catch on the ball of Unadkat. Pant opened the account with a four on Unadkat but the fast bowler caught Ajinkya Rahane (8) in the next over with his own ball and Delhi scored 36 for three in six overs. In the next over, Mustafizur gave a fourth blow to Delhi by sending Marcus Stoinis to the pavilion without opening the account. Pant and debutant Lalit Yadav then handled the innings. Yadav opened the account with two fours on the most expensive player of the IPL auction, Chris Maurice.

Pant welcomed Rahul Tewatia with four fours. 20 runs were scored in this over. Pant completed the half-century in 30 balls with fours on Mustafizur. He, however, was run out on an accurate throw from the bowler in an attempt to steal a quick run in Parag's next over. He hit nine fours in his 32-ball innings. Tom Karan (21) and Chris Woakes (15 not out) played some attractive shots in the final overs to bring the team score to close to 150 runs.
