Twitter Reactions: Rajasthan Royals make winning return to ‘fortress’, beat Delhi Daredevils by 10 runs

Posted On

Rajasthan Royals’ celebrated their return to the ‘fortress’ with a 10-run win over Delhi Daredevils in Jaipur on Wednesday.

Rain made its first real appearance in the IPL 2018 and in a way dug a deep hole for DD who were provided with the difficult task of chasing down 71 in 6 overs.

Gautam Gambhir had won the toss and as had been the norm in the tournament so far, he put the opposition into bat. And why wouldn’t he, as all 5 games until this match had been won by the team batting second.

The match was on an even keel when the rain came down at 153-5 in 17.5 overs, however, with DLS forced to make its presence felt, the matchup got a little tricky for the Daredevils, as they were handed a target of 71 in 6 overs.

With 10 wickets in hand and the kind of ammunition that they had in the dugout, Delhi would have fancied themselves to chase the total down. However, Munro got run-out without playing a ball and Maxwell still looked in ‘wedding mood’.

Pant did hit a few mighty blows but he couldn’t deliver when it really mattered.

The DLS ruined the chase for DD as they were given the herculean task of scoring at 12 runs an over right from the onset.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to the match:
