Rajasthan Royals recorded their seventh win at home with 13 balls remaining, scoring 155 for one.
Electing to bat, Delhi started poorly as Virender Sehwag (11) and CM Gautam (2) were sent back to pavilion in quick succession with scorecard reading just 22 for two. At 78 for four, Rohrer took the burden on himself and with caution and aggression took the team’s total past 150-run mark.
When Royals took the bat, Dravid and Rahane scored 108 runs for the opening-wicket partnership in just 13.4 overs. Rahul Dravid exhibited an amazing game playing the more aggressive knock of the two.
In the process, Royals also registered their highest opening-wicket partnership in this edition of the IPL, surpassing 98 runs against Pune Warriors last week. Dravid was finally out in the 14th over of the innings, when he was caught by Ajit Agarkar off Siddharth Kaul at long-on.
Shane Watson remained unbeaten on 14-ball 28, laced with three fours and one six. Rahane and Watson ensured that Royals remained unbeatable at home with an unconquered 47-run partnership.
