OUT! Caught. Jaydev Unadkat to Axar Patel. Off cutter length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, top edge in the air uncontrolled to short third man, by Tyagi. That's an absolute specky from Unadkat! Patel goes for a slog off the last ball but mistimes. A sitter and Tyagi doesn't drop those. Axar Patel walks back for 7. It's curtains for Delhi Capitals. They have managed to make 161 for the loss of 7 wickets after 20 overs. Shikhar Dhawan top-scored with 57, well supported by skip Shreyas Iyer who added 53 on board. For Rajasthan, Jofra Archer picked up three wickets, Jaydev Unadkat picked up two, Kartik Tyagi and Shreyas Gopal picked up one wicket each. Can Rajasthan Royals chase down the target of 162 or will Delhi's bowlers restrict them? Let's wait and watch.
