Yuzvendra Chahal and Nandre Burger each claimed a pair of wickets, while Sandeep Sharma and Avesh Khan excelled in the final overs, leading Rajasthan Royals to a 12-run victory over Delhi Capitals. This win maintained the pattern of home team successes in the 2024 Indian Premier League (IPL) at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium on Thursday.

Riyan Parag dazzled the home crowd with a striking unbeaten 84 from just 45 balls, propelling RR to a solid total of 185/5. Captain Sanju Samson's strategic bowling rotations were on point, and his bowlers rose to the occasion, particularly in the closing overs, confining DC to 173/5.

Toss Update:

Delhi Capitals captain Rishabh Pant wins the toss and elected to bowl first against Rajasthan Royals at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in IPL 2024.

Delhi have made two forced changes due to the injuries to Ishant Sharma and Shai Hope. Sharma twisted his right ankle while fielding in DC's first game while Hope has a back spasm.

Mukesh Kumar and Anrich Nortje come in as the replacements. RR meanwhile, are unchanged for this game.

Rishabh Pant is playing his 100th IPL game for DC tonight. He is the second player after Amit Mishra to play a century of matches for the franchise.

"Feels good to play 100 games for the same franchise but not thinking about it too much. Every game is important for me," Pant said at the toss.

RR vs DC Preview:

The Delhi Capitals would like to get their campaign back on the track and return to winning ways when they play the Rajasthan Royals in Match 9 of IPL 2024 in Jaipur on Thursday evening.

DC welcomed their captain Rishabh Pant back in the first match against Punjab Kings but lost the contest comprehensively by 4 wickets.

The Royals on the other hand, will look to register their second win on the trot after beating Lucknow Super Giants in their opening match.

Pitch report:

It's a fresh surface tonight. 67m square boundaries on both sides and a 76m straight boundary. We're playing on pitch number 5 today, it is absolutely rock hard, but there are some cracks which move as you press. It means that the bounce could be low with the new ball, it means the tactics could be similar to that of the last game.
