Rajasthan Royals vs Delhi Daredevils latest updates: Hello and welcome to CricketCountry’s live coverage of VIVO IPL 2018. We move to the Match 6 of the tournament as action returns to Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur after five years. Hosts RR will take on DD, and we will be providing you with the full updates, interesting tweets from the cyberspace and much more.

Both the sides suffered a loss in their previous games. While RR suffered an embarrassing 9-wicket defeat against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), DD were consumed by KL Rahul’s whirlwind at Kings XI Punjab (KXIP)’s den at Mohali. These are still early stages in the tournament but teams will look forward to open their account.

For the Royals, it’s an emotional moment, returning home after five years. To their advantage, they have a 73 per cent win record at this venue, making it their fortress. Head-to-head, Delhi have only won one match at Jaipur, having played four against Rajasthan here. RR hold the edge in overall IPL, having won 10 out of their 16 encounters against DD.

To DD’s credit, they have Gautam Gambhir at helm and their side wears a more balanced look. Meanwhile, RR, who have as many as four opening options in their top four, are showing signs of missing Steven Smith. These are still early days in the tournament to make a judgment, and let us hope for an absolute cracker.
