Initially, it was Shreyas Iyer, who won the toss, elected to bowl first. They got a brilliant start, as they got the young Sanju Samson for a golden duck. In fact, Samsom hasn’t faced a single delivery, as he was dismissed in the run-out fashion. Rabada was brilliant in hitting the bull-eye.

However, Ajinkya Rahane took the onus on his shoulders to give a quick start for the team. He looked in a different nick tonight, where he smashed Delhi bowlers to all corners of the park. Rahane, who was lucky in getting dropped in the hand of Ishant, used the chance to perfection.
