Reported by Harsh Kumar

In a gripping IPL encounter, Rajasthan Royals showcased their resilience as they overcame Delhi Capitals by a margin of 12 runs, thanks to an outstanding performance by Riyan Parag. The match, held on Thursday, witnessed Parag’s remarkable innings, where he crafted an unbeaten 84 runs off just 45 balls, comprising seven fours and six towering sixes.

Facing a rocky start at 36 for 3 in the eighth over, Rajasthan Royals rallied to set a challenging target of 185 for 5. Parag’s stellar partnership with Ravichandran Ashwin, who contributed a quickfire 29 off 19 balls, and valuable contributions from Dhruv Jurel (20) and Shimron Hetmyer (14 not out) propelled the team’s total.

In response, Delhi Capitals, despite a promising start led by opener David Warner‘s 49 off 34 balls, faltered under pressure. Despite Tristan Stubbs‘ resilient 44 not out, the team fell short of the target. Notable performances from Nandre Burger (2/29) and Yuzvendra Chahal (2/19) spearheaded Rajasthan Royals’ bowling attack, with Avesh Khan also making a significant contribution.

With this victory, Rajasthan Royals showcased their depth and determination, while Delhi Capitals will look to regroup and bounce back stronger in their upcoming fixtures.
