IPL Match Score DD vs RR: Delhi Daredevils will take on Rajasthan Royals in what is virtually a must-win situation for both the teams. DD have played eight matches so far, winning just two of them which means a loss here could end their campaign. Rajasthan Royals, would like to win this match and stay on same number of points as KKR which would keep their chances alive to enter the playoffs. Barring extreme circumstances, with four points from eight matches, Delhi Daredevils, who will be happier coming back home after their defeat in Pune, need to win all their remaining six matches. A win today for RR will put them at No.4 along-side Kolkata Knight Riders which will make them genuine contenders to make it to the playoffs.

Daredevils are still recovering from what turned out to be a mistake- having old horse Gautam Gambhir as skipper and opening batsman. The re-organised side led by Shreyas Iyer looks more dangerous to the opposition. Royals themselves have bounced back strongly after the return of Jofra Archer. However, RR’s big concern is their misfiring opening partnership and incompetent Ben Stokes and Jaydev Unadkat. Even DD’s Glenn Maxwell and RR’s Jos Buttler have scored 126 and 120 runs respectively in seven matches, which is not what they bargained for.

Here is IPL Match Score DD vs RR:

12: 30 pm: Daredevils beat Royals by 4 runs

11:58 pm: Avesh Khan to Buttler, FOUR runs, yorker on middle stump, and Buttler’s leg-side slog goes behind square. No one there, and Buttler earns another boundary.

11:51 pm: Is it just me or should the combination of Short, Buttler, Samson, and Stokes ALWAYS be Rajasthan’s top 4??

11:44 pm: Rajasthan Royals require another 117 runs with 10 wickets and 57 balls remaining.

11:34 pm: Rishabh Pant gets awarded the orange cap as the Daredevils make their way out. Four-over Powerplay. Only two bowlers can bowl a max of three overs. There will be no time out today because they’ve scrapped the time outs!! Excellent. And Buttler walks out with Short. Shahbaz to start off.

11:28 pm: The game will restart at 11.30pm. It’ll be a 12-over game. The target will be 151 according to our calculators

11:00 pm: The players walk off, officially. The covers are on.

10:56 pm: Unadkat to Maxwell, 1 run, full toss wide outside off, and Maxwell slaps this towards the off side. An excellent diving stop at point keeps it down to one.

10:38 pm: Unadkat to Iyer, 1 run, a slower ball outside off, chopped to third man. That’s Iyer’s fourth fifty in five matches

Can Daredevils make 200 in an 18-over match?

10:24 pm: Makes me wonder if the results would have been any different if DD had played Shaw right from the start of IPL, given the impact he has had in the few games he has played.

10:05 pm: Iyer is a good batsman.. excellent temperament..should get a look in for England tour.

10:00 pm: Stokes to Iyer, 1 run, full outside off, punched away to the sweeper cover for one.

9:50 pm: Unadkat to Shaw, FOUR runs, has he got enough? Just about to clear mid-on. Back of a length offcutter. Shaw picks the length but not the variation, which is why the timing is bad. Still, he gets enough to chip the ball over mid-on and into the boundary.

8.41pm The covers are coming off. An inspection at 9.10pm.

8.04pm A quick update: more rain, much heavier now.

7.57pm Looks like we’re in for a delayed start, I’m afraid. Just a slight drizzle for now. We will bring you updates as and when we have them, as always.

7:36 pm: Rajasthan Royals won the toss and chose to bowl

Ajinkya Rahane says he wants to “chase”. D’Arcy Short and Shreyas Gopal come in for Rajasthan. Ish Sodhi has been left out.

Shreyas Iyer: “Going to be easy, not dewy, in the first innings. Lot of learnings from the previous game. We’ve not lost at home so far. One change, Shahbaz Nadeem in for Rahul Tewati
