IPL is a game where you can’t predict as here the impossible can be achieved, and the easily achieved score can be difficult for you. However, cricket is a game where your prediction can be changed at any time.
The same happens in the DC VS RR match last night at Sharjah Cricket Stadium. While asking to bat first, DC set an excellent 184 runs on the board against RR.
However, for RR, the score can be achieved easily on the Sharjah ground as they had made the highest-ever chase in IPL history (224) against KXIP on the same ground.
As cricket is an unpredictable game, the DC players’ sensational bowling and superior fielding effort made them a conventional 46 runs victory against RR. DC VS RR highlights are as follows;
While Ravichandran Ashwin bowled to Jos Buttler in the third over of the power play, he attempted to go big over mid-wicket. At the square-leg, Shikhar Dhawan was there and caught the catch with an incredible dive, and RR had lost their first wicket only with 15 runs on board.
The second stunning fielding effort came from Shimron Hetmyer as he dives forward to send the Australian Steve Smith back to pavilion in the Anrich Nortje over.
When Marcus Stoinis bowled to Sanju Samson, he strikes the ball up at long-on towards Hetmyer, and again the West Indian showed his athleticism and sent back Sanju Samson.
Hetmyer was not yet done with his fielding heroics, and again he took a stunning diving catch to his left in the deep to send back Shreyas Gopal in the 18th over off Harshal Patel.
As Buttler, Smith, and Samson got out, early DC bowlers choked the run flow as RR crumbled and could only manage to score 138 runs in 19.4 overs and all out while chasing 184 runs.
As a result, DC has a conventional 46 runs victory against RR, and DC is on top of the table.
