Despite being in second place, Rajasthan needs to solve its problems in the death overs. Buckle up guys, IPL is going to be even hotter than the last overrace!

Rajasthan Royals Captain Sanju Samson: “I believe the total was within our grasp. A rate of 12 runs per over on this pitch was achievable, but that’s the unpredictable nature of the IPL. We felt that 220 was about 10 runs too many.

We managed to regain some control but conceded a few too many runs towards the end.”We’ve lost three very close games now. The key for us is to continue making slight adjustments. There’s hardly any downtime in this tournament.

Stubbs has adapted well to the conditions and batted brilliantly. He specifically went after our best bowlers, Yuzi Chahal and Sandeep Sharma, adding those crucial 20-30 extra runs that ultimately tipped the scales.” 

Delhi Capitals Captain Rishabh Pant: “The way our bowlers performed towards the end was the highlight for us and was very encouraging to see.

We aim to learn from every game, irrespective of the outcome, and continue moving forward. Kuldeep’s performance was particularly pleasing. We felt that keeping them to 200 was a reasonable target, and that guided our strategy.”

IPL 2024 Match No. 56 Kuldeep Yadav Player of the Match

 Kuldeep Yadav | Player of the Match: “Bowling a good length is crucial, especially during the death overs. Having played against Ferreira in South Africa, I knew he favored the back foot. I aimed to keep my deliveries full and quick, which worked as I got him out on the first ball.

I also threw in a couple of seam-up deliveries to gauge the batters’ responses. It’s all about the length, and sticking to that was my plan. Scoring over 200 puts pressure on bowlers but also presents opportunities for wickets, and I focused on playing to my strengths and maintaining belief.”
