Hello and welcome to CricketCountry’s coverage of the sixth match of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2015 between Delhi Daredevils (DD) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) at the Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi, on Sunday. I am Nikhil Popat, and I will bring you live over-by-over updates of the match. DD lost their first game of the competition against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) by one run and will be looking to get off the mark against RR, who defeated Punjab comprehensively in Pune. IPL 2015: Points Table and Team Standings

With the exception of Morkel, Delhi’s batting put up an abysmal show, which reflects in the fact that nine wickets fell in the chase. Kedar Jadhav was the only other batsman to reach the 20-run mark. However, their bowling attack fared very well. Nathan Coulter-Nile  conceded 30 runs in his four overs and bagged three wickets. Dominic Joseph Muthuswamy, Imran Tahir and Amit Mishra also bowled economical spells and chipped in with a wicket each. Read: Chennai Super Kings edge Delhi Daredevils by 1 run

The Rajasthan Royals (RR), on the other hand, eased to 26-run victory against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) in their opening game thanks to an all-round performance from the team. The Royals had a horrendous top-order performance with openers Ajinkya Rahane and Sanju Samson falling for a duck and five runs respectively. Karun Nair then got out for eight runs. In the top order, only Steven Smith – the stand-in captain – did well scoring 33 runs. Read: Rajasthan Royals defeat Kings XI Punjab by 26 runs

The overall performance was quite good, but they’ll need the top order to perform better. Shane Watson, who sat out with a niggle, Is likely to make his way back in the team and it’s probably Chris Morris who’ll have to sacrifice his place in the side. DD will need a well-rounded performance with the bat to counter the Royals bowling and to give themselves a chance to win. IPL 2015: Complete Coverage
