Fall of wickets: 1-18 (Shikhar Dhawan, 3.1 ov), 2-21 (Prithvi Shaw, 4.1 ov), 3-83 (Rishabh Pant, 11.4 ov), 4-90 (Shreyas Iyer, 13.2 ov), 5-121 (Shimron Hetmyer, 16.3 ov), 6-142 (Axar Patel, 18.2 ov)
11.4 to RR Pant, plays this one on! Back of a length is the way to go on this pitch, it would seem. Short, and outside off, and Pant was looking to hook this away towards deep square leg. Ends up getting an under edge, and has to trudge off. Royals with an important breakthrough, because this partnership was beginning to look a touch ominous for them. 83/3
16.3 to SO Hetmyer, yorker, and he looks to go down the ground. Off the edge, and taken at short third. Easy catch for Sakariya, as Hetmyer throws his head back in disappointment. Terrific hand, but Delhi would have willed him on to carry on for atleast another couple of overs. 121/5
4.1 to PP Shaw, slices that, and balloons it to mid-off! Shaw makes a touch of room to this full ball on middle and off, which is also angling away. Looks to go over the in-field with that loft, but can only sky that to Livingstone, as Royals strike again. The left-armer's angle working there for Royals. 21/2
18.2 to AR Patel, pulls a short ball just outside off, down Miller's throat at long on. Patel cannot believe how precisely he has placed it. He walked towards the ball a bit, and inadvertently ended up cramping himself for room. May have actually wanted to go straighter down the ground, but Sakariya is not complaining. 142/6
3.1 to S Dhawan, chopped on! Tyagi strikes first ball, although he has some luck favouring him. Good length ball on middle and off, as Dhawan looks to tap at that. Doesn't quite take off from the surface too, as it comes off the lower half of the bat, and bounces just in front of the stumps before rolling over to hit them. Dhawan barely has time to kick that away, as he walks back with a wry smile. 18/1
13.2 to SS Iyer, that could be gone! Drew him forward by tossing it up, and throwing it a touch wide. Iyer took the bait, and saw the ball spin across his blade, and then Samson was quick to whip the bails off. The Royals captain looks quite confident, but it does seem Iyer had his foot grounded, at first glance. Outstanding bit of bowling from Tewatia, nonetheless. Seems to have read a hint of restlessness on the part of the batter. No edge on this. And he had failed to stretch his back foot back in! Pant, and now Iyer. Capitals have some work to do now to get themselves up to the kind of total they should be aiming for. 90/4

TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 6.05)121/6
Fall of wickets: 1-6 (Liam Livingstone, 0.6 ov), 2-6 (Yashasvi Jaiswal, 1.1 ov), 3-17 (David Miller, 4.2 ov), 4-48 (Mahipal Lomror, 10.2 ov), 5-55 (Riyan Parag, 11.5 ov), 6-99 (Rahul Tewatia, 17.2 ov)
0.6 to LS Livingstone, tickled behind to the keeper, and Pant grabs it really well to his low! Avesh sees Livingstone coming down early, and changes his pace to also bowl short of a length outside off. Livingstone has a swing at that, but is foxed by the lack of pace, as the ball takes his a faint edge to go toward Pant, who dives low to complete the ctach. 6/1
1.1 to YBK Jaiswal, Capitals go up for a caught behind, but the umpire stays unmoved! But Pant reviews. There seemed like a clear sound when the ball passed the bat, as Jaiswal went driving at this full delivery in the channel outside off. And UltraEdge confirms an outside edge. No foot movement as he goes pushing at that, as Pant took it easy this time. Another blow for Royals really early into the innings. 6/2
17.2 to R Tewatia, short, and looks to pull it. Cannot keep it down, and it goes straight down Hetmyer's throat at deep square leg. Just has to move a bit to his left, and that's good enough to pull this catch off. 99/6
4.2 to DA Miller, dances down, and is stumped! Miller skipped down well too early, as Ashwin tossed that up full and just outside off. Miller is beaten by the flight and the slowness of the ball, and Pant has it easy behind the stumps. Ashwin strikes second ball, as Capitals edge ahead early. Royals three down in under five overs. 17/3
10.2 to MK Lomror, helps a short ball down deep fine leg's throat! Dug in short by Rabada, and Lomror might have been intending to play this a bit squarer. Cannot keep it down, and a grateful Avesh Khan gobbles this one up. Exposes the slight underbelly that this batting lineup has for Rajasthan. 48/4
11.5 to R Parag, fired in quicker, and he looks to play this across the line, and misses out. Parag misses. Patel hits. Rajasthan sink further deep. 55/5
