OUT! Caught (Sub). Tushar Deshpande to Shreyas Gopal. Off cutter back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to backward point. A soft dismissal and its curtains for Rajasthan Royals. Tushar gets another wicket on his debut match, what a night it had been for him! Gopal steers the short one behind square on the off-side and Lalit Yadav takes a good catch. Delhi Capitals win by 13 runs. They have done exceptionally well to defend an average target and they are back to their winning ways. For Rajasthan, Ben Stokes top-scored with 41, Uthappa made 32 but nobody volunteered to take them home tonight. For Delhi, Tushar Deshpande and Anrich Nortje picked up a couple of wickets each. Rabada retains the purple cap with 18 wickets this season. Delhi Capitals advance to the top of the points table with 12 points and Rajasthan Royals remain last but one with 6 points. Anrich Nortje has been adjudged as the man of the match for his excellent bowling performance. Join us for the next match played between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kings XI Punjab live from Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah. Until then, cheers!

FOUR! Rahul Tewatia to Shreyas Iyer. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump moves in front driving, well timed in the air under control past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Shreyas Iyer doesn't dance around this time but follows what MCC's textbooks had once written to lean out from his initial stance, get close to the pitch of this and then nail his cover drive. That's played through the off-side and there's no-one there. Shreyas reaches 1000 runs in IPL and reaches the landmark in fine fashion.

FREE HIT. FOUR! Ben Stokes to Shreyas Iyer. Off cutter back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled past long off for 4 runs. A boundary off the freebie! Not middled but Shreyas will accept it! Stokes compensates and goes short this time. Shreyas tries to pull but only manages a top edge. The ball lands in no-mans land and reaches the straight hit ropes for four
