Rajasthan Royals registered their first win over Delhi Capitals in a thrilling match of IPL 14.

In the IPL-2021, on Thursday, the match between Delhi Capitals and Rajasthan Royals was played, in which 2008 winner Rajasthan defeated Delhi by three wickets. In this match, Delhi pushed Rajasthan on the back foot but David Miller and Chris Morris forced Rajasthan to defeat Delhi with their fiery batting and gave Rajasthan their first win of the season. Rishabh Pant, captaining Delhi, took a surprising decision in this match. He did not get the entire four overs of the quota of experienced spinner Ravichandran Ashwin of the team.

Ashwin bowled only three overs against Rajasthan and conceded just 14 runs. Ashwin bowled the seventh, ninth and 11th over. His part wicket did not come but he managed to stop the run. Had Pant got him one more over, he might have dismissed Miller beforehand and might have stopped Morris as well. Pant's move was not liked by Delhi coach Ricky Ponting.

Made a mistake, will talk to the team

The former Australian captain said that Ashwin was bowling brilliantly and it was a mistake of the team not to put his fourth over. The website ESPNcricinfo quoted Ponting as saying, "When I get a chance to sit and talk with the team, I will definitely talk about it." Ashwin bowled brilliantly. Conceded 14 runs without any wickets in three overs. Did not even eat a boundary. His performance in the first match was not good, but he worked hard in the last few days and did well in this match. This was a mistake made by us and we will discuss it. ”

Batting first, Delhi had a target of 148 runs in front of Rajasthan with the help of Pant's 51 runs. Rajasthan, recovering from a poor start, won the match by three wickets with the help of David Miller's 62 off 43 balls and Morris's unbeaten 36 off 18 balls. Ponting said that his bowlers gave Morris the chance to score runs in the last over. Ponting said, "We gave him a lot of easy balls. Some slot balls. The length of the balls was not what it should have been. "
