RR vs DC IPL 9th Match Highlights 3-28-2024

Watch cricket video highlights between Rajasthan Royals vs Delhi Capitals. Indian Premier League 2024 ninth match, played at Jaipur.

The Rajasthan Royals overcome a significant circumstances handicap on a night when their three best batsmen combined for 31 off 37, thanks in large part to what many believe to be Riyan Parag’s emergence. Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson, and Jos Buttler were all taken out by the ball as it seaming and swinging. Parag, playing cautiously, converted 16 off 20 into a match-winning 84 off 45.

Delhi Capitals would have been confident, given the dew and limited seam movement available, that they could chase down 186 despite the Parag assault. However, Nandre Burger, the Impact Player for the Royals, made early inroads with the ball, Yuzvendra Chahal claimed wickets, and Avesh Khan and Sandeep Sharma finished brilliantly with yorkers and wide lines.

Despite their lack of exceptional speed, DC’s new-ball bowlers Mukesh Kumar and Khaleel Ahmed made the most of the early seam movement by bowling in places where they continued to assault the stumps. Though RR intended to weather the storm, they were not going to be able to play the long game if they did.

In the powerplay, Khaleel got an edge from Samson in his third over, but Kuldeep Yadav trapped Buttler leg before wicket with a reverse sweep. Mukesh dismissed Jaiswal. By the eighth over, at 36 for 3, it was arguable that significant damage had already been done.

In the early part of his innings, Parag could hardly muster a run a ball. Meanwhile, R Ashwin was elevated to the top and he blasted three sixes. Presumably, the plan was to postpone Shimron Hetmyer’s debut while making sure they avoided using their Impact replacement against a batter. In addition to waiting till the perfect moment for the heavier hitters to enter the game, Ashwin struck Kuldeep and Anrich Nortje, two of DC’s finest bowlers on paper, three times for sixes. For the first time, RR’s run rate exceeded six thanks to these hits. in the eleventh over of the game.

After Ashwin left, Parag took over, playing on painkillers and flu medicine after three days of sickness. The change in tactics began in the 13th over when Kuldeep pulled a six. It continued with 6, 4, and 4 in the 15th over to somewhat hurt Khaleel’s numbers. Finally, in the 20th over, a magnificent takedown of Nortje ensued, going for two sixes and a total of 25 runs. Hetmyer finished with an undefeated 14 off seven overs after beginning his innings in the eighteenth over.

It was evident that RR was making great efforts to secure Burger’s services instead of Powell. They were able to decide thanks to the Parag attack in the last portion of the inning. In the fourth over, Burger dismissed Ricky Bhui and the rampaging Mitchell Marsh, so vindicating the choice right away. Burger ensured that RR inflicted the early damage on a night when Trent Boult went without a wicket and forgot about grabbing his typical first-over wicket. Bhui gloved a bouncer and Marsh was bowled via swing at high space.

The task of bowling inside the powerplay was taken on by the two large left-arm seamers, which likely relieved some of the burden on the other four bowlers to bowl 14 between them.

With a known asking rate and generally better conditions for batting, David Warner seemed dangerous, but Avesh got him with a full and wide ball. As noted by pundits previously, his open front foot has both opened up the off side on balls that are delivered straight and removed him from the ball when it is bowled wide. Sandeep was at short third when the edge soared to him after it appeared like he pulled out a fishing rod to get this one.

After that, Yuzvendra Chahal dismissed Ishan Porel and Risbhabh Pant, two left-handers. If Boult had completed the easy catch from Tristan Stubbs, Ashwin might have finished the match in the 17th over, but the relieved hitter kept things interesting by hitting three sixes and a four off the next six balls he faced. The closest the equation could go for them, though, was 22 off 10, as Sandeep and Avesh continued to force the batsmen to hit into the larger boundary with their yorkers.
