IPL 2018: 6th Match, Rajasthan Royals vs Delhi Daredevils – Toss Report
Delhi Daredevils won the toss and decided to field first against Rajasthan Royals in the sixth game of the Indian Premier League at the Sawai Man Singh Stadium, Jaipur.
Here is what the captains said:
“Looks a good wicket, won’t change much. Perhaps dew will come in. That’s why we are chasing. Just the start of the tournament, need to get the combination right. We have the full squad now. Maxi is back and we all know how dangerous he can be. Important to get the combinations right and hopefully we can do it. Two changes – Nadeem for Mishra, Maxwell for Christian.”

“We would have bowled as well but as I said, toss isn’t in our control. We will look to bat well and put runs on the board. I think the boys have adjusted to the conditions well, especially the overseas ones. They are experienced campaigners. We are unchanged.”

Royals, who were playing their first game after being reinstated in the league, lost their opener against Sunrisers Hyderabad by nine wickets. It was mostly an one-sided affair as Royals failed with both bat and ball. Sent in to bat first, they could score only 125 for 9. In reply, Hyderabad chased down the total inside 16 overs by losing just one wicket.
On the other hand, Delhi managed to put up a respectable 166 but were blown away by KL Rahul’s 14-ball fifty and suffered a six-wicket defeat. Despite boasting of solid squads, both the teams have a lot of issues to address and the upcoming game is likely to be an even contest.
