Delhi started handsomely with a couple of quick wickets of D'Arcy Short and Ben Stokes. Ben Laughlin proved to be the hero with the ball for RR as he picked two key wickets and conceded 20 runs in two overs.

"It is not the 200 run kind of wicket but 160-170 would be achievable because ball would come nicely on to the bat". But RR still had power hitters left.

After nine overs RR 77/2.In overs 13.4 Shahbaz Nadeem struck again, Ajinkya Rahane gone for 45.
