Ashwin struck in his first game of the game as David Miller was puzzled. It was a poor South African southpaw cricket as he came out and tried a hard blow, but missed the ball by a mile.
Earlier at bat, Shreyas Iyer fought a lone battle at the top before Shimron Hetmyer hit a quick 28 to help the Delhi Capitals reach a respectable 154/6 in their 20 overs.

Delhi bowlers then made up for the team’s disappointing display with the bat to give the Rajasthan Royals a 33-point loss. Capitals bowling unit capped Royals at 121 for six
Iyer hit a 32-ball 43 before being kicked out of play by Rahul Tewatia to put Rajasthan back in the game. In fact, at one point it looked like Delhi was aiming for a score of around 180 with skipper Rishabh Pant and Iyer looking good in the middle.
But Mustafizur Rahman broke the 62-point bar when he fired Pant for 24. And that saw RR bowlers push their way into the game.
For RR, while Mustafizur finished with numbers 2/22, Chetan Sakariya took two wickets and gave 33 points.
