Indian Premier League 2024: Rajasthan Royals vs Delhi Capitals Match Highlights and Points Table | Player of the Match: Match number 9 of IPL 2024 saw a rivalry between the two home teams, the Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Capitals.

In the nail-biting match between the Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Capitals at Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur, something happened with DC in the end that turned the tables of the match. Let us know the condition of the match as we saw it.

The Capitals won the toss and invited the Royals to bat, who initially took over the RR lineup, and soon dismissed Jaiswal and Samson.

However, a flexible approach between Riyan Parag and R Ashwin kept RR competitive. Parag’s brilliant unbeaten 84 with a strike rate of 187 and a timely cameo from Dhruv Jurel took RR to the final score of 185. Khaleel Ahmed was excellent with the new ball, setting the tone early on.

Despite a bright start from Marsh and Warner, Berger’s double strike disrupted their momentum. Thereafter, the partnership between Pant and Warner gradually built, with Warner being out just short of his half-century.

The pace further faltered after the dismissal of Rishabh Pant. Impact player Porel could not do much and despite late efforts from Stubbs, Sandeep Sharma and Avesh Khan bowled composedly at crucial moments to give Rajasthan the victory.

Delhi Capitals Captain Rishabh Pant: "Definitely disappointed. Best thing we can do from this is learn and move on. The bowlers did really well till 15-16 overs, batters sometimes go on at the death and score quickly, that happened in this game. Mitch Marsh and David Warner gave a good start, but we lost a few wickets in the middle-over phase and in the end we had to catch up. Hopefully, we can do better in the next match."

Rajasthan Royals Captain Sanju Samson: " The way we started, the first ten overs, we were like Rovman, be ready you might have to bat! The IPL is changing and we all have to be flexible. Earlier it was about 11 players, now it is about all 15 players. Me and Sanga had a lot of chats between the 15th and 17th before deciding on the Impact Player. It's all about gauging in which zone they are. You have to look at that and take your call. I saw Sandy was calm and Avesh was also looking good, so I went with that. Riyan Parag has been a big name in the last few years. So happy he cashed in tonight"

Riyan Parag: " Emotions are settled, mother is here as well. She's seen the struggles, this feels very special. I know what my ability is and I never let that change - irrespective of whether I perform or not. A lot to do with the domestic season, where I scored a lot of runs."
