DC vs RR IPL Score: RR took some crucial wickets early on against DC.© BCCI/IPL
Shreyas Iyer was also dismissed as Delhi Capitals (DC) lost track versus Rajasthan Royals (RR) with regular wickets. Rishabh Pant was dismissed by Mustafizur Rahman after Kartik Tyagi removed opener Shikhar Dhawan and Chetan Sakariya dismissed Prithvi Shaw early. Earlier, Pant-led DC were asked to bat first by RR skipper Sanju Samson after winning the toss in Abu Dhabi. RR bring in David Miller and Tabraiz Shamsi in place of Evin Lewis and Chris Morris while DC are forced to make a change due to an injury to Marcus Stoinis, who is replaced by Lalit Yadav. DC have continued from where they left off in the first phase of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 in India. DC have registered seven wins in nine games in IPL 2021 so far and are currently placed second in the IPL points table. A win would help them overtake Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at the top for the time being. RR, on the other hand, escaped with a two-run win against Punjab Kings (PBKS) in their previous match and will be aiming for a better start to this game scheduled to be played in Abu Dhabi.
