Jaipur: May 1, 2012

Rajasthan Royals captain Rahul Dravid won the toss and elected to bat against Delhi Daredevils in their Indian Premier League (IPL) 2012 match at Jaipur on Tuesday.

Rajasthan would be eager to put behind the disappointment of defeat when the Daredevils pulled off a dramatic one-run win from the jaws of defeat.

The Royals needed to score just 15 runs in the last two overs but Morne Morkel’s penultimate over completely changed the complexion of the match as he gave away just three runs, picking up the wicket of Brad Hodge to turn the tables.
