Currently, Delhi Capitals (DC) are hosting Rajasthan Royals (RR) in the 54th game of the ongoing season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) at the Feroz Shah Kotla. After winning the toss, the RR skipper, Ajinkya Rahane chose to bat and his decision back-fired as Rajasthan lost as many as 4 wickets in the powerplay itself.

Rajasthan lost their skipper in the 2nd over of the game as Ishant outplayed him with a slower ball and Shikhar Dhawan took a comfortable catch at fine leg. In the next over of the Ishant, RR lost Liam Livingstone as well as the bowler cleaned him up on the penultimate ball of the over. However, a huge mix up took place between Mahipal Lomror and Sanju Samson on the second ball of the 5th over of Axar Patel which ended in the dismissal of the latter.
