IPL 2022: DC registered a dominating victory over RR by 8 wickets

    Delhi Capitals registered a dominating victory over Rajasthan Royals at DY Patil Stadium, securing the win by 8 wickets with 11 balls left. The main credit goes to Mitchell Marsh, who showed his brilliance in both batting and bowling and also received the man of the match award for his performance. RR batted first and put up 160 on the scoreboard with the loss of 6 wickets. DC while chasing, chased down the target with ease in 18.1 overs by losing only 2 wickets. Here are 3 factors to consider which helped DC to secure the win.

    Mitchell Marsh’s performance

    Mitchell Marsh’s impressive performance on the ground in terms of both batting and bowling was one of the major reasons why DC was able to secure the win with ease. He bowled 3 overs, conceded 25 runs, and picked up 2 important wickets of RR opener Yashasvi Jaiswal and Ravichandran Ashwin who scored a half-century. He also played a brilliant knock of 89 of 62 balls with 5 fours and 7 sixes with a strike rate of 143.55.

    Failure of Joss Buttler

    Though RR has won many times giving a team effort, every time, their star player Joss Buttler played a special role in that. Rare are those cases when RR has won a match without Buttler’s contribution. In this match also Buttler wasn’t able to stand for long, getting caught out at only 7 of 11 deliveries, on the ball of Chetan Sakariya, in the hands of Shardul Thakur.

    Warner’s 52*

    Along with Mitchell Marsh’s innings, David Warner also played well and build a good partnership with Marsh to take DC past the victory line with ease. He scored 52 of 41 balls with 5 fours and a six, played till the last, and the winning stroke came from his bat too.
